Are you concerned there is nothing that may help you feel like yourself again? Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a treatment method that helps restore balance to hormone levels as they shift, providing more balance to your everyday health and wellness. This is a highly customizable treatment method, and balancing hormone levels may reduce a range of frustrating experiences. Explore the benefits of this treatment method during a consultation with our team at SliMedica in San Antonio, TX!
What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy allows for controlled balance and maintenance of hormone levels. Shifts in hormone production are a normal part of life, but they may become more dramatic and frustrating particularly as part of the aging process. Both men and women experience decreased production of important hormones, but everyone’s experiences are unique.
Complications of changing hormone levels may include:
- Anxiety and depression
- Brain fog and memory loss
- Chronic fatigue
- Difficulty falling or staying asleep
- Drop in libido or sex drive
- Joint pain
- Mood swings
- Muscle mass loss
- Sexual discomfort or dysfunction
- Thinning hair or hair loss
- Unexplained weight gain
The effects of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy will vary for each person, and your particular concerns many impact what may be the best treatment for you.
What Could I Expect from Treatment?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a diverse treatment that may involve creams, injections, patches, or pills. Each treatment method has its own unique benefits, and some may be more suited to your daily lifestyle than others. By using bioidentical hormones, these hormones mimic those that naturally occur in your body.
Achieving and maintaining the results from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy may take some patience as your body absorbs and processes the hormones. Depending on the treatment method, a series of visits may be required to help you enjoy the best results.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Most people naturally experience changes to their hormone levels, especially as they get older. Both men and women may be able to benefit from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. It is commonly recommended to those who have experienced andropause and menopause, respectively. However, a consultation with our team in San Antonio can help determine how you may benefit from this treatment method.
