Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy - Edina, MN

About BHRT - Edina, MN

Aging can be a scary prospect. In addition to the general stress and pains of growing old, we go through a number of physical and mental changes. For women, menopause is a major concern while men deal with andropause and low testosterone.

Many age-related issues are the result of hormonal imbalance. Your body has a complex collection of glands called the endocrine system. Each of these glands generates crucial hormones, such as testosterone, estrogen and progesterone. Excessive or reduced levels of these hormones can wreak havoc on your system.

Bio-identical hormone replacement, or BHRT, is the only safe, natural solution to hormonal imbalance.

What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

BHRT is a way to fight aging and balance your hormones. It does this with the use of chemically and biologically identical hormones. This makes BHRT a better choice than conventional hormone replacement therapy, which uses synthetic hormones.

The natural hormones used in BHRT can be administered with a number of delivery methods. They include:

  • Pills
  • Injections
  • Pellets
  • Creams
  • Gels
  • Skin patches

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy generally falls in to two categories: BHRT for Women and BHRT for Men.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women

Many women seek bio-identical hormone replacement as a way to combat menopause. After women hit a certain age, their body goes through this drastic change. Menopause can also be caused at any age by a woman who has received a hysterectomy.

Some of the more alarming signs and symptoms of female hormonal imbalance include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Weight gain
  • Low libido
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • Migraines
  • Bone density loss
  • Memory loss

These menopausal symptoms stem from decreased levels of estrogen and progesterone. These hormones can be restored with BHRT. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is a natural and effective way to address women’s health.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men

Just as women suffer from menopause, men deal with andropause. Andropause is often synonymous with low testosterone. As a man ages, his testosterone levels drastically decrease and lead to the condition also known as Low-T.
Low testosterone symptoms include:

  • Low sex drive
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle loss
  • Depression
  • Joint pain
  • Memory loss
  • Poor concentration

Andropause and low testosterone can be treated with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. BHRT uses natural testosterone to restore vigor and make men feel young again.

Other Uses of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

In addition to the issues that trouble each gender, men and women can benefit from using BHRT to treat the thyroid disorders known as hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. Other hormones that can be administered with this treatment include:

  • Cortisol, which regulates energy and stress.
  • TSH, which controls thyroid function.
  • DHEA, which is converted by your body to other hormones.
  • Melatonin, which regulates your sleep.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy Results

Regardless of the delivery method, men and women who are treated with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy see noticeable results.
Those treated with BHRT can see:

  • Increased sex drive
  • Weight loss
  • More energy
  • Reduced pain
  • Better mood
  • Regained strength

Most of all, BHRT makes patients feel normal again. Aging can be scary, yes, but bio-identical hormone replacement is the best tool available to fight back.
