BioIdentical Hormone Walnut Creek
Hormone response is as unique to each person as their own fingerprints. Hormones are essential for a wide range of bodily processes, from sleep and growth to metabolism and mood. Estrogen alone has over 400 jobs in the body! So, it is easy to know when your hormones aren’t balanced. Menopause is a normal process, and every woman will go through this process in their life. The normal age to go through menopause ranges from 35-55. Therefore, a woman may live one in half of her lifespan without a menstrual cycle.
Rachael states that "the time between peri-menopause through post-menopause can be one of the most challenging times for a woman.”
These hormonal fluctuations can have repercussions in many areas of daily life including physical, mental, sexual health and psychological health.
The first step to start to stabilize hormone balance is starting with a thorough work-up including comprehensive hormone testing, serum testing, and personalizing a regimen using BioIdentical Hormone in Walnut Creek at Innovative Wellness.
What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?
Bioidentical hormones are derived from natural sources and are chemically identical to the hormones produced by your own body. They can be customized in dosage forms to provide your body with exactly what it’s missing that can help manage hormone imbalances leading to:
Brain fog, memory loss, weight gain, low libido, sleep issues, anxiety, thinning skin and more.
The bioidentical hormone in Walnut Creek uses plant-based hormones chemically the same as those produced in the human body. The result is less chance of adverse side effects. The body responds to this as if it is your own hormones, you naturally use to make, with a much better outcome, safety, and efficacy.
BHRT has several delivery methods. There are topical creams and gels, injections, patches, sublingual, and pellets.
When should you consider BHRT?
Hormone replacement is generally used for women who are going through peri-menopause to post-menopausal years. It can alleviate symptoms like weight gain, night sweats, hot flashes, memory issues, low energy, moodiness, vaginal dryness, and decreased libido. When a woman enters menopause, she is now more at risk for cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and dementia. As we age, it's not about a wrinkle, it is about staying healthy longevity and optimizing our quality of life.
What are the risks and side effects?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is considered to be very safe. Some temporary side effects may be headaches, nausea, or acne. These should go away after a few weeks.
