Menopausal symptoms can be extremely difficult as women age, but men can also experience symptoms that can make aging difficult. This is because of the hormonal changes that occur as you are getting older. Have you noticed that certain symptoms — such as hot flashes, foggy thinking, weight loss or gain, and problems sleeping — are affecting your day-to-day life? Why not consider the option of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy to manage them?
At Symonett Weight Loss Center, Dr. Elmer R Symonett, wants to offer you the best solutions for health at any age, and bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is a great way to achieve this! We’ve helped many women and men safely and effectively thrive through the aging process with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. Here are the top five reasons why it might be right for you.
1. We provide your body with its perfect, hormonal match
One of the best ways to confidently and safely restore your normal hormone levels is by using a product that’s just like the hormones your body would produce if it could. This can be done with bio-identical hormones, which come in the form of a pellet, oral, and topical treatments.
Our option is known as BioTE® Medical, which provides our patients with a duplicate of the chemical and molecular structure of the hormones produced by their bodies. That means your body won’t be able to tell the difference, and it will respond to our bioidentical hormones the same way it would if the hormones came from your own body.
2. BioTE Medical hormones are all-natural
It’s common to be concerned about using synthetic hormones made from animal sources, but you don’t have to worry about that with these hormones. The bio-identical hormone replacement therapy we provide is derived from plant sources, often chemicals extracted from yams and soy.
3. BioTE has fewer side effects than other hormones
Matching your body’s own hormones, using a natural alternative, and customizing your dose all mean that your risk of side effects is minimized. However, because we utilize the pellet method, our treatment also ensures that you don’t have to experience the rollercoaster-like effects of highs and lows often associated with creams and topical treatments.
4. Get rid of hot flashes and night sweats
According to Harvard Medical School, up to 80% of women experience moderate-to-severe hot flashes and night sweats during menopause. Men can also experience excessive sweating as well, especially at night, as a possible result of low testosterone. And unfortunately, in some individuals, these symptoms may last for as long as 10 years before hormone levels even out again.
That’s right; it’s possible these symptoms could last a long time, which is why forcing yourself to “sweat it out” isn’t very fair. The good news is, bio-identical hormones can be used to eliminate these symptoms.
5. Help yourself feel healthier overall
Even if you first seek bioidentical hormone replacement therapy due to hot flashes, the fact is that you can protect your overall health by restoring your hormones to their normal levels. Your hormones affect virtually every system in your body, from your brain and muscles to your blood vessels. When your hormones are out of whack, you’re bound to experience other issues, from weight gain to confusion to sleep disturbances.
The changes that occur as your body ages can be severe and sometimes interfere with your everyday life. Fortunately, they can all be treated with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
