Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Q & A
What is bioidentical hormone therapy?
Bioidentical hormone therapy treats a variety of conditions, most commonly menopause. By supplementing your body with hormones that are bioidentical, patients can see improvements to their overall wellbeing. With balanced hormones, most patients find:
- Their symptoms are reduced
- Side effects are minimal
- They begin to feel like their old selves again
These bioidentical hormones share the same molecular structure as your body’s natural hormones. Most bioidentical hormones are synthesized from plant chemicals found in yams and soy. These hormones cause the same reaction in your body as natural hormones because your body can’t distinguish the difference between the two.
What conditions can be bioidentical hormone therapy treat?
The team at Qvita Health and Wellness uses bioidentical hormone therapy to treat hormone imbalances in both men and women. Using a customized approach, they use blood testing to determine which hormones are imbalanced before creating an individualized bioidentical hormone treatment plan to meet your needs.
In women, bioidentical hormone therapy is most often used to treat the symptoms of menopause, such as:
- Hot flashes and night sweats
- Vaginal dryness
- Low libido
- Thinning bones
In men, bioidentical hormone therapy is used to treat the symptoms of andropause, or the drop in male hormones due to aging, sometimes referred to as male menopause. This therapy can help with a range of symptoms, including:
- Muscle loss
- Lower sex drive
- Hair loss
- Erectile dysfunction
- Urinary problems
Depending on your unique set of symptoms, your bioidentical hormone therapy can be supplemented with vitamins or changes in lifestyle.
