Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT):
As we age, our bodies’ natural hormone output decreases. This usually occurs after the age of 30. This affects both men and women. Some of the most common bioidentical hormones are estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and cortisol.
MANopause happens when the testosterone levels drop beginning in our thirties. This comes with a host of problems including:
- erectile dysfunction
- higher fatigue and lower energy
- increased mood swings and irritability
Menopause in women manifests itself in these symptoms:
- hot flashes
- vaginal dryness
- loss of libido
- low self-esteem
- panic attacks
- thinning of the skin
- loss of collagen
- weight gain
BHRT has also been used to treat osteoporosis, mental health issues, and weight problems; although this is only one part of the puzzle when treating diseases. I utilize a combination of BHRT, nutritional supplementation, physical therapies, and conventional medical approaches.
