BHRT -  Estrogen and Progesterone Replacement Therapy

fujisan

Hormones control a lot of our body’s functions, meaning when hormones are off because of estrogen disruptors or even low testosterone, things like energy, motivation, general health, vitality, are missing as well.

In women, estrogen replacement primarily targets the uterus, vaginal tissues, breast, muscle, bone, skin and brain. Low estrogen levels can increase LDL levels (the harmful cholesterol) and decreases HDL (the good cholesterol). Progesterone replacement primarily balances estrogen but it also improves sleep, improves mood, increases metabolic rate, acts as a natural diuretic and enhances action of the thyroid hormones. It is very important that bioidentical hormones are used, synthetic estrogen and progesterone have beeens shown to be harmful. Bioidentical means that the hormones are identical on a molecular level with our own natural hormones. 

Replace what your body is losing. Easy and naturally.

Progesterone and Estrogen replacement therapies aim to get back what the body is no longer naturally producing. Studies show that estrogen replacement in particular protects women from heart attacks/disease, relieves menopause symptoms, preserves bone density and muscle mass, improves metabolic rate, decreases LDL, increases HDL, maintains skin collagen and decreases risk of developing diabetes. Progestrone replacement studies show that it helps balance estrogen, improves sleep, lowers blood pressure, lowers cholesterol, increases metabolic rate, is a natural diuretic, and a natural antidepresant. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapies (BHRT) have been around for years and on-going studies show that the benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement therapies outweigh the risks. It offers women disease prevention, aging modification, and most of all, improved quality of life.

Aging does take a toll on our bodies; those of us over 40 have already noticed the changes including symptoms of low estrogen, progesterone and low testosterone.  And in this case the saying, “change is good” may not be so true! The answer to managing your age could be as simple as continuing to maintain a healthy level of estrogen and progesterone through bioidentical hormone replacement.

ESTROGEN

Women who are hormonally deficient or experiencing estrogen menopause are known to have higher rates of death from heart attacks, strokes, and osteoporosis.  This is especially true for those who have had their ovaries removed and are going without hormone or estrogen replacement therapy.  

Studies support these findings and in addition show that the mortality rate is lower by more than 40% in the women who took estrogen. Low estrogen levels also contribute to depression, thinning hair, poor memory, and general hormone deficiency symptoms such as fatigue and increased risk of osteoporosis.

Hormone replacement therapy with estrogen is heart healthy, it protects your bones, it maintains your brain function, it protects against Alzheimer’s and it helps keep your skin looking great.

PROGESTERONE

Women who are experiencing symptoms of low progesterone can easily restore their levels to a normal physiologic range. Studies show a decreased incidence of breast cancer when using bioidentical progesterone and estrogen together. Studies also support that premenopausal women who have healthy progesterone levels have an 88% reduction in the risk of developing breast cancer.

Bioidentical progesterone replacement therapy is cancer protective, it protects your bones, it improves sleep and maintains your immune function, it protects against aging and it helps balance your estrogen.
