Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, or BHRT, is known to be safe and it is effective in comparison to the conventional hormone therapy to relieve menopausal symptoms.
The hormones in the body control various functions of the body. They serve like an internal communication system between the cells throughout the body, and are in charge of coordinating everything, starting from growth and digestion, libido, and mood, to immune functions and appetite. If hormones get out of balance even a little, it will have an impact on the wellbeing of a person and their health.
When the hormones of some people become imbalanced or if they drop, they should consider hormone replacement therapy so that they can deal with the problems caused by such imbalance. Among these therapies, there is BHRT which is now gaining more attention. It is a natural solution to many hormone issues. However, it is good to be aware what makes it different from other replacement therapies.
What is BHRT used for?
BHRT may be used for treating people if their hormone levels have dropped and are no longer balanced. It is used to ease the symptoms that may be caused by menopause and perimenopause. It can also be used for improving cancer symptoms or to treat some conditions like fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, thyroid disorders, and insulin resistance.
Why you should use BHRT?
BHRT is often used by older people whose hormone levels have dropped. However, younger patients may be able to benefit as well. It can help with loss of sexual interest, sleep issues, weight gain, memory loss, mood changes, night sweats, and hot flashes.
In addition, this hormone replacement therapy can reduce the risks of suffering from cataracts, tooth loss, and diabetes, and improve skin elasticity, hydration, and thickness which reduces facial wrinkles.
