The COVID-19 lockdown and the distancing we’ve had to do for a couple of years seems to finally be subsiding. But the mindset created from the virus may be harder to shake. Many of us have changed habits, exercising less and cocooning more. We may have also changed our perspective to something less ambitious. And that isn’t good.
But all of this may not be simply a mental outlook. Some of your hesitancy and reduced energy may be caused by a decrease in natural hormones as we age. This can be true for both men and women, but it can be especially impactful in women, because hormones make a major impact on a woman’s life.
Depletion of hormones through aging, menopause, and other factors affect mood, energy, muscle mass, and libido. That’s why many women come to Body Symmetry MD for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
There are numerous types of hormone replacement therapy. So why BHRT?
BHRT involves the use of human-made hormones derived from plant estrogens, which are chemically identical to those produced in the human body. That’s a critical difference.
Studies have shown significant long term health benefits with natural hormone optimization, such as reducing the risks of diseases and unpleasant symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances. BHRT is most frequently used today to ease the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause in women, but it can also offer a number of other life and attitude advantages.
BHRT can be used to:
- Improve mood and outlook
- Help with weight loss and toning
- Increase sex drive
- Boost energy
- Change overall perspective
- Slow aging
BHRT may also be administered in various forms, including injections, pills, patches, creams and gels, depending on what’s most convenient for you. That’s another advantage of the Body Symmetry MD approach–everything is custom-tailored to your body and your lifestyle.
Body Symmetry MD makes every BHRT treatment program personalized to the individual. To begin, we conduct an in-depth analysis, including bloodwork, health history, and your individual health goals. We then craft a treatment plan designed to produce both short-term and long-term success.
This is a proven, scientific approach to hormone replacement therapy that offers several advantages. Because we start with plenty of background data, it’s possible to “dial in” your hormone dosage so there’s less need for adjustment later on. This allows your body to quickly adapt to the therapy and helps you get to feeling your best quickly. And with this detailed benchmark, we can monitor your hormone levels as we move forward, keeping your levels balanced and allow you to take full advantage of everything BHRT has to offer.
