Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
One of the most popular treatments that people get at our Georgetown, Kentucky Medspa is what is known as bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
As you age you will eventually come to a point in your life where you will go through a phase known as Menopause (women) or Andropause (men). During this time you may experience side effects that sometimes go along with the rapid hormone changes in your body that occur during these phases. Bioidentical hormone replacement has been shown to eliminate or lessen the severity of many of the side effects associated with Andropause and Menopause.
Hormone treatments are nothing new when it comes to treating the effects of Menopause and Andropause on the human body. However, a 2002 study showed that there was a possible link between regular hormone treatments and conditions such as heart attacks, breast cancer and stroke. Our bioidentical hormone replacement therapy has been proven to be much safer and effective than conventional hormone replacement therapies.
Why do biomedical hormone treatments seem to not have these same severe health risks? Many experts believe it’s because bioidentical hormones are what are known as being “biochemically correct”. In Lehman’s terms this means they closely mimic the natural hormones that are produced in the human body. Previous hormone treatments had synthetically produced hormones or ones that were derived from animal sources.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement for Women
Hormone replacement therapy for women is one of the natural menopause treatments that really work. During menopause women can be affected by a large variety of ailments such as severe mood swings, hot flashes, weight gain and fatigue.
Correcting the level of estrogen and progesterone can often correct or lessen the severity of many of these symptoms of menopause. Our Georgetown clinic’s bioidentical hormone replacement treatment can do such things as stop mood swings, increase bone density and restore healthy lubrication of the vagina.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement for Men
Low testosterone (low T) levels in your body associated with Andropause can have a pretty big impact on your body. It is known to contribute to conditions like erectile dysfunction, loss of muscle mass and cardiovascular disease. Bioidentical testosterone for men has been shown to reverse some of these conditions and help return testosterone levels to a more youthful level. Testosterone increase in your body can accomplish such things as increasing your libido, leveling out your moods and increasing your vitality too.
