What Are The Benefits Of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement?

bhrtWhen a woman enters her pre-menopausal years, it is normal for her to wonder about her options as her hormone levels begin to change. When the symptoms inhibit a woman from getting as much as she can out of life, it’s time to talk to her doctor about hormone replacement therapy options. Bio-identical hormone replacement offers several benefits to women, especially those who would prefer to use a natural product during this time of life.

Signs Of Hormonal Imbalance In Women

While some women may find that her pre-menopausal changes due to hormones are merely a nuisance, others find that they are more disruptive to their everyday life. Along with irregular periods, which may be accompanied by cramps, the following symptoms may be noted:

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Hot flashes
  • Insomnia or difficulty staying asleep
  • Night sweats
  • Weight gain

Benefits Of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

Synthetic hormones are created in a laboratory, and extra chemicals are added to the “recipe” so that the company creating them can patent their product.

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy uses only natural hormones, without adding any chemicals.

Less Intrusive To The Body Than Synthetic Hormones

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy offers an alternative to synthetic hormone replacements. The chemical option attempts to recreate the effects of the natural hormones in the body; however, any decision to use them must be weighed carefully to determine whether their benefits outweigh the risks.

No Potentially Dangerous Side Effects

No extra chemicals mean there is no risk of side effects to patients from the following, as there would be from traditional hormone replacement therapy:

  • Blood clots
  • Cancer
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure

Bio-Identical Hormones Safer For Patient Use

The bio-identical hormones travel through the body in the same manner as the ones the body creates on its own. They don’t contain any foreign ingredients to disturb the body’s delicate balance.
