Memory Loss Therapy with Hormone Replacement in Elizabethton, TN
Memory loss is a common problem faced by both men and women as they age. However, short lapses or blank spots in memory are noted as being particularly frequent in women undergoing menopause. This is largely due to the hormones that fluctuate the most during the process of menopause (namely estrogen) are involved in the body’s ability to process and store memories.
Memory loss is tolerated by many, but can pose certain dangers. It may also be the start of greater mental deterioration in the aging process—this often includes dementia, Alzheimer’s, and delirium. This is why memory loss is not something anyone, man or woman, should take lightly. Fortunately, certain treatments exist which correct the hormone imbalances responsible for memory loss.
Hormone Replacement Therapy for Memory Loss
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) corrects hormonal imbalance by introducing (often via injection, pill, patch, cream, or gel) synthetic hormones into the body that the body then accepts as its own. Traditional hormone replacement therapy has shown to be effective in treating the hormonal imbalances behind many cases of memory loss. However, its side effects have become a subject of great debate in recent years.
The hormones administered during traditional HRT are synthetic and don’t perfectly replicate the hormones the body naturally produces. The body can detect many of the synthetic hormones, resulting in large portions of HRT dosages going unused. The synthetic hormones that are left behind in HRT are believed to cause a great deal of bodily harm, increasing the risk of heart attacks and certain cancers. Fortunately, a safer, more effective alternative is available to help those suffering from memory loss.
Bioidentical Hormones: A Safer Alternative
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) uses hormones that are perfect replicas of the hormones naturally produced by the body – imitating them on a chemical level. Because of this, the body is often unable to distinguish between bioidentical hormones and its own. More of the bioidentical hormones are used, leading to a more effective treatment. In addition to this, fewer hormones remain to potentially wreak havoc on the body.
A popular method of delivery for bioidentical hormones is through hormone pellet therapy. This involves injecting a tiny pellet made of pure hormones into muscle tissue where it dissolves over the course of several weeks. Part of what makes hormone pellet therapy such a popular method of delivery for BHRT patients is a reduced number of treatments in a given year.
BHRT is thought to be a safer, more effective method of balancing the hormones that are responsible for conditions like memory loss. Now is the time to take action. Request more information about BHRT for memory loss today! Call (423) 301-6964 or contact Tri-Cities Functional Medicine online.
