What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a medical treatment that involves the use of hormones, typically estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone for women, and testosterone for men. The goal of the treatment is to restore hormones that the body no longer produces in adequate amounts as we continue to age. The treatment is customized to each individual's needs and may involve regular blood monitoring to ensure hormone levels are properly improved.
Does hormone therapy help with Menopause?
Absolutely. Menopause is a natural phaze on women’s life when the period stops. Thus producing less hormone such as estrogen and progesterone. The hormone depletion can cause a variety of symptoms which can be treated to minimize or end the menopause hormone transitions.
Do men need hormone therapy?
Absolutely. Men do not have menopause symptoms but they can definitely benefit from HRT. The highest peek for hormone levels in a male are in their twenties. Every year after, the levels of testosterone decreases bringing symptoms like: lack of energy and focus, less sex drive, weight gain, etc. Thus, it is extremely important to replace Male hormone levels to maximize body functionality, feel great and prevent a few aging health conditions.
Bio-identical hormone medication are considered a natural form of HRT because its active ingredient molecule is identical to those naturally produced by the body. This is only possible due to its extraction from a plant source. This type of substance is different from synthetic hormones used on other forms of HRT and its long term has been proven through research to be extremely safe.
Most people believes that syhthetc medications are not natural and therefore they are not good for you. This is absolute false information. Most HRT’s treatments are synthetic and it is not the type but the quantity of hormone delivered to each individual that may cause a negative consequence. Both types of hormone therapy are made in the lab but the main difference is in their raw ingredients which in the synthetic form is a chemical-compound.
