Have you started to feel less like yourself? Does it feel like your everyday health and wellness is not as strong as it should be? Are you unable to pinpoint a culprit for your struggles?

However, hormone optimization can help to balance hormone levels and provide relief.

What Is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for women is a therapeutic treatment method that aims to help restore balance to shifting hormone levels. Hormone level productions naturally change and decrease during the aging process, oftentimes causing negative and frustrating changes to health.
The hormones used for treatment mimic those your body naturally produces. This helps promote their effectiveness, encouraging your body to properly absorb and process them.
What Does Hormone Optimization Involve?
The treatment process will vary for each person. It is important to remember it may take some time to enjoy the results of hormone therapy. Your body absorbs the hormones, and it may be a gradual process for your body to respond to the additional levels.
Just as each woman experiences menopause or hormonal changes differently, the results of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy will vary for each woman. A regimented hormone optimization program is often necessary to achieve and preserve the best results. Your unique needs and experiences will influence the details of your treatment plan.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Treatment?
Hormone optimization through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is most often recommended for women who are currently or have previously experienced menopause. You may want to consider pursuing this treatment if you’re dealing with:
- Anxiety or depression
- Brain fog
- Chronic fatigue
- Difficulty falling or staying asleep
- Hair loss
- Hot flashes
- Memory loss
- Mood swings
- Pain or discomfort during intercourse
