Call Us For Bioidentical Hormones Replacement Therapy Needs
Supplementing hormones that are not being produced in sufficient quantities can improve the health and the quality of life for patients. Great Earth offers hormone replacement therapy for both men and women. We prepare testosterone, progesterone, estrone (E1), estradiol (E2), and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) customized for your unique body needs.
Bioidentical hormones replacement differs from ordinary hormone replacement in a very important way – “bioidentical” means the therapy is tailored for each patient and is meant to replicate each individual’s hormonal blueprint.
Hormonal imbalances can cause serious problems in both men and women. Fluctuating hormones produce symptoms ranging from annoying to traumatizing and include hot flashes, anxiety, excessive weight gains, problems with sex, and more. Many people use bioidentical hormones replacement therapy to eliminate or significantly diminish these symptoms and to improve health and wellness.
Hormone Replacement Therapy Works for Women
When a woman’s menses cease, she goes through menopause, which means there is a significant drop in levels of estrogen and progesterone, both of which are essential hormones.
- Estrogen is the hormone responsible for stimulating egg release; however, it is important for more than egg production and release. Estrogen is also tasked with regulating vaginal moisture, maintaining bone density, and maintaining the temperature of the skin.
- Progesterone, on the other hand, prepares a woman’s womb for a possible pregnancy. It also works to protect the lining of the uterus also known as the endometrium. Unlike the estrogen level drop, a decrease in progesterone levels doesn’t cause any immediate discomfort; however, it may increase the risk of endometrial cancer for some women.
- Both estrogen and progesterone are efficient in natural anti-aging as they help other hormones regulate metabolism and keep skin healthy.
An imbalance in estrogen and progesterone levels can cause vaginal dryness, urinary ailments, thinning hair, difficulty in sleeping, night sweats, moodiness, low fertility, irregular periods, hot flashes, memory impairment, reduction in breast size, accumulation of abdominal fat, and more. Except for vaginal dryness, these problems usually go away after two to five years.
Hormone therapy is often given to women to replace balance hormone levels and reduce menopausal symptoms. In bio-identical hormones replacement therapy, a cocktail of hormones is compounded, and tailored to each woman’s needs. Blood, saliva or urine testing can be used to help physicians identify appropriate dose of medications.
Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men
People often hear about hormonal imbalances in women, but men also have their share of problems with hormone imbalances. Andropause (the “male version” of menopause) happens when a male experiences a significant drop in the testosterone hormone. There are also some men who are hypogonadal. Hypogonadism is a condition in which a man has insufficient levels right from the start.
Both of these types of problems can be successfully treated with bioidentical hormones replacement therapy, which can be helpful in getting rid of problems like fatigue, osteoporosis, and low libido. Raising the levels of this hormone improves a man’s libido, boosts the mood, enhances muscle mass, increases strength, and, most importantly, reduces risk of prostate cancer.
