Get Relief Now with Human Bio-Identical Hormones
Reclaim your zest for life
Feel like the only thing that fluctuates more than your hormones is all the talk about hormone therapy? The truth is, human bio-identical hormone therapy -- used to manage aging symptoms -- is safe for most men and women. Here are the top benefits that we can discuss during your consultation.
Hormone Therapy Keeps You Cool
If you're bothered by hot flashes or night sweats, systemic hormone therapy -- meaning it circulates through your body , by way of a transdermal cream, is the most effective medical treatment available. According to JoAnn Manson, MD, one of the principal investigators of the Women's Health Initiative (WHI) hormone therapy trials, only 20% of women have hot flashes that are serious enough to warrant hormone therapy.
Hormone Therapy Gets Your Groove Back
Hormone therapy is one of the best options for vaginal discomfort and dryness. Women with vaginal symptoms only can opt for local (nonsystemic) hormone therapy (low-dose therapy, applied topically in the vagina, as a cream, ring, or tablet). "This will effectively treat her symptoms, while her exposure to synthetic hormone therapy will be lower," Manson says.
Hormone Therapy May Protect Your Ticker
For healthy women under age 60 who are within 10 years of the onset of menopause, hormone therapy may in fact reduce the risk of heart disease and death. However, it should only be taken to treat menopause symptoms -- not to prevent chronic disease.
Hormone Therapy Keeps Bones Strong
In people over age 65, falling and fracturing a hip can be a serious hazard. In fact, one in five seniors will die within a year of breaking their hip. Hormone therapy helps to restore estrogen and prevent bone loss. For women who can't take bone-building drugs, such as bisphosphonates, hormone therapy may be an option.
The Bottom Line
If you have symptoms listed on the previous page as a man or a woman, are within ten years of entering menopause, significantly bothered by hot flashes, vaginal dryness, memory loss,irritability, sleep loss, or other symptoms, the benefits of human bio-identical hormone therapy may be just what you are looking for.
