Hormones control important functions like growth, metabolism, sexual function, reproduction, and even mood. As we age, our hormone production shifts, which can cause a shortage or stop production of certain hormones for both men and women, resulting in symptoms such as decreased sex drive, mood changes, trouble sleeping, and more. Luckily, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy relieves these symptoms by replacing the depleted hormones that your body has stopped making or is not making enough.
What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy is designed to help restore natural hormonal balance. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is the therapeutic use of hormones that are identical to the hormones made naturally by the body. These include testosterone for men and estrogen or progesterone for women. These hormones are typically used to treat symptoms such as those of perimenopause, menopause, andropause (male menopause), HPA axis imbalance, and thyroid dysfunction.
Why choose bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?
As hormone replacement therapy replaces the missing hormones, men and women will experience benefits like increased energy, enhanced sex drive and sexual experience, better quality sleep, and accelerating fat burning for increased weight loss.
What can I expect during this therapy?
There are a variety of ways to take these hormones, such as pills, dermal patches or gels, creams, or suppositories. At TKI, we use pellets.
How long until I feel the results?
Results vary with each person, and depend on which therapy you require. Patients generally see benefits in a few weeks and full results in 3-6 months.
Will I need to take these hormones forever?
The answer depends on how well your body responds to the hormone replacement therapy. Most patients will wean themselves off of hormones as they become balanced and they are experiencing fewer symptoms.
