The up to date medical literature and data supports the use of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) in people who are suffering with symptoms and ailments resulting from hormone deficiency for example, Menopause. Symptoms of menopause include hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, and low sex drive to name a few. In men, there is a condition called Andropause which is similar to Menopause where they experience similar symptoms as women, with the exception of hot flashes. Hormones are comprehensively responsible for protective and anti inflammatory effects throughout the body in addition to alleviating these symptoms. For example, the list of more common symptoms and health problems as a result of low hormones include:
Depression/Anxiety and Cognitive health
Heart health and preventing heart attacks
Muscle and bone integrity
A healthy sex drive and energy
Stimulating our own stem cells
Deficiency occursin from inflammatory lifestyle and diet, toxins, stress, deficiency in key nutrients or surgery to remove the uterus / affect our sex organs function. The evidence out today therefore supports starting HRT as soon as menopausal symptoms arise to not allow the body to suffer these consequences, delay aging and promote a youthful appearance.
