Menopause and Perimenopause and Bioidentical Hormone Replacement
Menopause is a natural stage in a woman’s life that is experienced as part of the aging process. The age of menopause onset ranges from woman to woman, as do the symptoms associated with menopause. By decreasing the amount of hormones produced, the body is instinctively accepting that it is reaching the end of its childbearing years. Women going through the process of menopause often experience many hormone related symptoms, which can include:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Mood swings
- Loss of libido
- Vaginal dryness
- Heart palpitations
- Urinary urgency
- Clammy skin
- Weight gain
Most traditional medicine treatments only focus on managing symptoms but do not solve the root cause of the problem. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy has the ability to not only relieve symptoms and discomforts, but also eliminate them. With this kind of relief, women can expect to see a dramatic improvement in their quality of life during menopause and perimenopause.
Andropause and Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men
Men experience similar transitional stages as they age. As men age, the body’s testosterone levels slowly start to decline beginning in a man’s 30’s, and the signs and symptoms of this testosterone decline is commonly known as andropause. During a man’s 40’s or 50’s, a dramatic drop in the levels of testosterone can occur, and uncomfortable symptoms may result. For men, some common symptoms may include low energy levels, decreased stamina, poor mental function, lower sexual performance, and a decreased sense of self-confidence.
Testosterone contributes to male characteristics, such as physical and behavioral traits. When testosterone levels begin to decline, a slight change in behavior is the common result. Men have reported feeling a loss of quality of life resulting from imbalanced levels of testosterone, and have little to no interest in activities or hobbies that used to interest them.
Andropause is often accompanied with one or more of the following symptoms:
- Low testosterone
- Weight gain
- Fatigue and energy loss
- Loss of sex drive
- Occasional bouts of impotence
- Mood swings
- Loss of physical strength
Hormone Replacement Therapy has been shown to help men rebalance their hormones and regain control of their life. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy restores levels of hormones to what they used to be, bringing youthful vitality and energy.
