What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy helps men and women to replace deficient hormones using hormones that are identical in molecular and structural function to the hormones produced in the human body. Bioidentical hormones are usually synthesized from soy or yam products, and they can be dosed to fit individual needs. These hormones can replenish the body’s hormones without causing vicious side effects, such as water retention, endometriosis, bloating, mood swings, and breast or uterine cancer.
Many hormones work to help the body maintain balance, and each hormone helps the body to maintain numerous functions. Hormones are messengers throughout the body that work to regulate many of the body’s activities, which may include reproduction, sexual function, energy and heat production, metabolism, and digestion. As aging occurs, the body’s ability to produce hormones can degenerate, and many women and men may not be able to produce an adequate amount of hormones. Other factors that can adversely affect hormone production include a lack of exercise, smoking, environmental factors, unhealthy diet, excessive alcohol intake, and high levels of stress.
Dr. Powell can help to balance important hormones that have become deficient, imbalanced, or dominant in the human body, and he can customize Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy programs that help patients to regain balance. Essential hormones that can fall out of balance include estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, pregnenolone, human growth hormone, and thyroid hormone. Balancing these hormones can help men and women to regain balance and overall health.
Some of the conditions that rebalancing these hormones can improve include:
- Adrenal fatigue
- Thinning Hair
- Anxiety and depression
- Chronic headaches
- Chronic fatigue
- Enlarged prostate
- Erectile dysfunction
- Gastrointestinal disorders
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
