Is Hormone Replacement Therapy the Cure for Hot Flashes?
Posted January 07, 2014 in Uncategorized
Are you experiencing hot flashes? Weight gain? Low libido? Emotional problems? It might be menopause. Declining hormone levels associated with aging can wreak havoc on your physical and emotional health. Getting those hormones back in balance can help alleviate the common symptoms of menopause, helping you feel your best. Don’t just suffer through menopause assuming that it’s a necessary part of aging; with the right hormone balance you can achieve optimal health, vitality and wellbeing.
A Delicate Hormonal Balance
When we think of menopause and hormones, often only estrogen comes to mind. It’s actually more complex than that. From thyroid hormone to human growth hormone to progesterone and estrogen, the body uses many different hormones to regulate essential functions. Many of these hormone levels decline with age, impacting almost every system in the body. Your skin, brain, breasts, vagina, intestinal tract and even your cardiovascular system can suffer adverse effects from improperly balanced hormones caused by menopause.
Hormone replacement therapy is a safe and effective way to restore hormone levels to the proper balance. Here at Rejuvalife Vitality Institute we use specialized testing to determine your levels, creating a customized plan to balance hormones using bio-identical hormones. Patients often feel the difference almost immediately. When hormones are at the proper levels the symptoms of menopause often disappear leaving you feeling energetic, revitalized and young again.
Why Bio-Identical Hormones?
Dr. Berger understands that many people are concerned with the side effects associated with hormone replacement therapy. Bio-identical hormones allow us to balance hormone levels while eliminating many of the dangerous side effects. Bio-identical hormones are identical to the hormones your body produces naturally. They are derived from natural plant chemicals and botanicals. We’ve found that bio-identical hormones carry the benefits of synthetic hormones without some of the drawbacks. They are a natural and effective solution to declining hormone levels.
Not Just for Menopause
While hormone replacement therapy often provides great relief for our patients going through menopause, others may find benefit to this type of treatment as well. Medical research has shown that hormone therapy can be an effective solution for almost all women’s disorders (PMS, migraines, depression, infertility and more). Whether you’re going through menopause currently, will be in a few years or have other hormone related issues, we’d love to help you balance your hormones and feel great. (For our male patients we offer testosterone replacement therapy to alleviate male menopause symptoms.)
Feel your best when your hormones are perfectly balanced. Come in to Rejuvalife Vitality Center and let Dr. Berger create a custom hormone replacement therapy plan for you. Menopause doesn’t have to include hot flashes, insomnia or low libido.
