Balance Your Hormones Naturally
Properly balanced hormones are critically important in promoting and maintaining your health. But unfortunately, hormone levels decline as we age, leading to various physical, mental, and emotional challenges that can negatively impact our quality of life. Hormone replacement can often restore your health and happiness. And now, with a breakthrough called bioidentical hormone replacement therapy Jacksonville patients have a treatment that's safer and more effective than ever before. BHRT is among the innovative, customized treatments we proudly offer at Modern Aesthetic Centers. Schedule a consultation to learn about the benefits of this exciting new approach.
An Exciting New Approach
Hormones are chemical messengers secreted by your endocrine glands directly into your bloodstream. Hormones help regulate growth and development, metabolism, sexual function, reproductive health, cognitive function, and mood.
Bioidentical hormones are man-made hormones that are molecularly identical to the structure of hormones your body generates. Hormones that are not bioidentical are commonly known as synthetic hormones. The hormones used in traditional HRT are made from the urine of pregnant horses and other synthetic hormones. Hormones used in bioidentical HRT are made from plant estrogens.
BHRT can be used to treat men and women when their hormone levels drop or become unbalanced. Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are among the hormones most commonly used in treatment. Female bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is typically used to replace declining levels of estrogen and progesterone. Male bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can adjust levels of testosterone and, in some cases, human growth hormone (HGH).
Safe for Both Men and Women
After age 30, most men experience a gradual but continual drop in testosterone. But that decline is often accelerated by various other, non-age related conditions. Testosterone is required for:
Insufficient testosterone levels (“Low T”) can lead to low energy, trouble concentrating, loss of muscle mass, weight gain, sleep disorders, high cholesterol, hypertension, depression and anxiety, and declining sexual desire and performance.
Estrogen therapy is the most effective treatment for menopausal hot flashes and night sweats. Estrogen can also ease vaginal dryness, itching, and discomfort during intercourse. BHRT has been shown to offer some protection from the bone-thinning disease osteoporosis.
Committed to Your Health
Partnering with the right provider is the most important decision you will make in pursuing bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. At Modern Aesthetic Centers in Jacksonville, FL, we are committed to your health, safety, and overall well-being. Should some people avoid BHRT? Yes. The following conditions can be disqualifying:
Disclose your medical history to your provider, including all surgeries and chronic conditions. Your provider will run diagnostic tests to assess your hormonal levels and determine whether you can benefit from BHRT.
Various Treatment Options
The hormones prescribed in BHRT can be delivered in various forms, including:
Marked Improvement in Mood
For many men and women, BHRT can increase sex drive, ease mood changes, reduce irritability and depression, and improve sleep. Also, clinical studies indicate that BHRT increases the elasticity of blood vessels, allowing blood to flow more freely throughout the body. It may also decrease the incidence of colon cancer, although that link has not been clearly established.
Our Jacksonville BHRT patients generally require post-treatment follow-up visits at 4 to 6 weeks, three months, six months, and then annually. Lab levels will be evaluated, and dosages will be adjusted as appropriate.
The best indicator that your dosages are correct is that your symptoms are controlled, and you are experiencing no side effects. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy has boosted the health and happiness of many men and women. But this is a highly specialized and customized rejuvenating treatment that fully trained and highly experienced providers must administer.
Research indicates that hormone replacement therapy may increase the risk for certain conditions and diseases, including:
Common side effects may include acne, bloating, and fatigue, particularly at the beginning of treatment as your body adjusts to its new hormone levels. All women undergoing BHRT are advised to:
Patients are advised not to extend treatment beyond seven years. The best guideline is to discontinue treatment when you achieve relief from your symptoms.
Not as a direct result of BHRT
Absolutely! Diet is important in supporting hormone health. Eat as many whole and fibrous foods as possible, and avoid processed and sugary foods. Drink lots of water. Studies have also confirmed the positive effects of regular and vigorous exercise on hormone levels for both women and men.
