This new evolution is a culmination of research efforts over the years from some of the most distinguished medical and scientific research centers in the country. Physicians have finally realized that science has now given them the tools to enhance the quality of life by preventing deterioration through hormone replacement.
The pure biologically identical hormone is either extracted from plants or synthetically manufactured. What is most important is that the end product is a molecule similar to the hormone molecule found naturally in the body. All hormones – thyroid, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and DHEA – can be replaced. These bio-identical hormones get made specially to fit your body’s needs through a compounding pharmacy.
Can hormone replacement therapy help you lose weight?
Yes! Diet, exercise, and vitamins are essential to sustained weight loss. Still, hormone replacement is the only therapy that can restore energy, make patients feel and function better and provide long-term health protection. Studies show that Testosterone, estrogen progesterone, DHEA, and Thyroid, replacement therapy decrease fat levels. With hormones replacement Many people are feeling more balanced, happier and healthier after finding the right balance for themselves.
What are the benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement?
Overall, patients find themselves feeling healthier, more balanced, and increase their health after hormone replacement. That said, there are different types of hormones that may need to get replaced, and each hormone that re-enters your body provides different benefits.
Bio-Identical Estrogen, for example, vastly improves the quality of day-to-day life for women by making them more youthful and energized. Women have fewer wrinkles, improved memory, and a more enjoyable, satisfying sex life after menopause when they receive estrogen replacement.
Bio-Identical Estrogen: protects against
- Hot flashes
- Vaginal dryness
- Heart disease
- Colon Cancer
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Macular degeneration
Bio-identical Progesterone is the “feel good” hormone. Progesterone is a very beneficial treatment for PMS, which includes moodiness, heavy cycles, irritability, bloating, and headaches/migraines. The real progesterone is the mood stabilizing hormone for women (i.e.anxiety and depression). It breaks down fat, builds bone loss, lowers cholesterol, helps sleep disorders, increase energy, and kick starts weight loss.
Bio-Identical Progesterone protects against
- Postpartum depression
- Cystic breasts
- Night sweats
- Ovarian Cysts (PCOS)
- Uterine Cancer
- Breast Cancer
Bio-identical Testosterone, which is also replaceable, is also a female hormone, not just a male hormone. Replenishment of testosterone in women contributes to the enhancement of sexual drive, relief of arthritic pain, restoration of energy, strengthening of bone, prevention of osteoporosis and improvement of an overall sense of well-being and zest for life. Many women do not realize that testosterone improves their muscles, bones, tendons, and joints and endurance. It’s the best hormone for the skin to prevent thinning and wrinkles and increase collagen and elastin is through testosterone.
Testosterone replacement has been shown to be effective in providing many health benefits: increased muscle strength and lean body mass, improved sexual response, reversal of impotence, and improved body composition. Testosterone has also been shown to prevent osteoporosis, arthritis and degenerative joint change. It enhances the sense of well-being and depressed mood frequently seen in andropause (male menopause).
Finally, the hormone DHEA has many beneficial effects. It is the building block that is necessary to make estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. DHEA improves the function of the immune system, improves brain function, relieves stress, and has been shown to be a very potent anti-cancer supplement. DHEA also increases energy and reduces body fat and cholesterol, thereby preventing heart disease. DHEA has been shown to increase insulin sensitivity, which means that less insulin is required.
How long does it take hormone replacement therapy to work?
Much like anything else, the results depend on the individual. Providing one “set” timeline for any person is impossible. However, we can assure you that hormone replacement does work and helps your body restore the components it needs to help you lose weight and be the best version of yourself.
The best way to find out if – and how long – hormone replacement works is to get a thorough, accurate diagnosis that pinpoints what is holding your weight loss ability back.
