Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women
If you’re like many menopausal women, you may be experiencing some of the following symptoms due to hormonal fluctuations: tiredness, weight gain—especially around the waist, mood swings, low sex drive, and insomnia.
Hormones are messengers that communicate with the cells of the body and are an essential part of the metabolic process of living. Estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), insulin, melatonin, and growth hormone are some of the major hormones in our bodies.
Hormone production declines as we age, suffer from diseases, and expose ourselves to toxins or trauma. Fortunately, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can serve as an effective treatment.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
More and more physicians are now using bio-identical hormone replacement therapy to treat their female patients. This type of replacement therapy helps to improve or eliminate hormonally created symptoms—including the difficult symptoms of menopause. These include hot flashes, night sweats, dry skin, memory loss, fatigue, etc. Bio-identical hormones are natural and identical to the hormones that the human body produces and therefore, unlike synthetic hormones, are very safe and effective.
Studies show that natural bio-identical hormone replacement therapy treatment for women significantly improves their quality of life and health, while decreasing the risk of developing chronic illnesses in the future.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT), like many other medications, must be prescribed with care. A complete and proper evaluation, that includes lab testing, may find a simple underlying hormone issue. Treatment may help lower cholesterol levels, decrease the need for diabetes medications and prevent diabetes altogether, help with weight loss, increase bone strength, and decrease the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
