Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Getting older can be difficult enough emotionally without the added physical changes like hot flashes that keep you up at night. Men and women both suffer from various forms of hormone imbalance as they age, but women typically experience more physical changes than men do. If you’ve been diagnosed with perimenopause, menopause or low testosterone, then you’ve probably tried everything to experience relief. The good news is that you have options when it comes to mitigating the effects of hormone changes. At HWC of Texas, we offer hormone replacement therapy in our San Antonio and Austin locations designed to reduce or eliminate uncomfortable symptoms. Read on for more information on BHRT and how it might help you.

Physical and Emotional Changes

Men and women experience different levels of change as they age. For some people, menopause might mean a loss of appetite or mild mood changes. For others, symptoms might prevent them from enjoying life. Hormone imbalance ranges for each person, and it’s not genetic. You might experience entirely different changes from the ones your mother went through. Menopause can include:

  • Anxiety and mood swings
  • Inability to sleep
  • Weight fluctuations
  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Thinning hair
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Painful intercourse
  • Headaches and migraines

For men, low testosterone may affect mood and sexual desire as well as any number of other physical changes. Why do these things happen in the first place? Hormonal changes happen as a result of age. As women get older, the ovaries stop producing the right levels of progesterone and estrogen needed for childbearing. Age also affects men in similar but not always as obvious ways. San Antonio and Austin residents have options at HWC of Texas when it comes to treating these effects. In the next section, we’ll discuss the benefits of HRT.

How Natural BHRT Helps

Hormone replacement therapy or BHRT counteracts the effects of aging by mimicking your body’s hormone production. In women, hormone imbalance treatment essentially takes up the role of ovaries by balancing out progesterone and estrogen levels. Once the hormone levels are balanced, there’s no biological need to feel the emotional or physical effects of menopause.

Your doctor may have recommended synthetic hormone therapies to you, but natural HRT works differently. Synthetic treatments work for many people, but they don’t offer the same benefits as natural BHRT. Made from plant chemicals and designed to mirror your body’s natural rhythm, BHRT treatments give many people relief without the unpleasant side effects of traditional medication. This treatment option is FDA-approved and can be performed by licensed practitioners at specialty clinics like ours.
