What is Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy used for?
Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy can be used to treat both men and women when their hormone levels become unbalanced. It’s most frequently used to ease symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. It may also be used to improve symptoms of cancer treatment or to treat conditions such as:
- insulin resistance
- adrenal and thyroid disorders
Bio-identical hormones are artificial hormones derived from plant estrogens that are chemically identical to those that human body produces. Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are among those most commonly replicated and used in treatment.
If you are experiencing the symptoms of aging, you may want to explore Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy to help you feel healthier and more youthful (and often with an increased libido). These symptoms can include:
- Weight gain
- Limited energy
- Hair loss
- Low sex drive
- Mood swings
- Poor concentration
- Memory loss
As noted above, menopause or andropause might be the root cause behind these symptoms. At the same time, environmental and dietary toxins can upset hormonal imbalance or make existing hormonal imbalance worse. You could be a candidate for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy if symptoms like these have begun to affect your quality of life.
How long can you take bio-identical hormones?
Although it varies from person to person, you can expect to see some relatively immediate results with improving results over the follow three to six months. This duration of time is necessary to allow for the proper balancing of your hormones.
One study has also shown that patients who continued with their hormone treatment for a period greater than 5 years were protected to a greater extent against the onset of any cardiovascular events than those who had stopped their treatment.
It depends on how well your body responds to Hormone therapy. Also important is how well you manage your diet, sleep patterns, exercise and stress levels that will assist you in regaining hormonal balance. Once they become balanced and have fewer symptoms of menopause or andropause, some patients can wean off various hormones.
There are also patients who can wean off adrenal and thyroid support once their adrenals or thyroid glands have healed. In the worst-case scenario, if you decide on the cessation of Hormone therapy, your body would return to the state it was in before initiating your program.
How much does Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy cost and is it worth it?
BHRT is actually an affordable treatment option for many men and women who have or are suffering from hormonal imbalances. Treatment plans usually vary but, the average cost for bioidentical hormones ranges from $250-$550 per month depending on lab tests, prescriptions and supplements.
