Have you been feeling out of balance, tired all the time, or less like yourself? Your hormones may be to blame. Hormones can get out of balance at any time, but many people experience changes as they grow older. Because hormones can impact almost every area of your life from the quality of your sleep to the quality of your sex life, keeping them in balance can be vital.
At Zormeier Cosmetic Surgery & Longevity Center, we would love to help you regain balance in your life, feel more energetic, and feel like yourself with our bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) in Noblesville, IN.
What Is BHRT?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a treatment that is used to help restore hormonal balance in both men and women. At our practice, we treat both younger and older patients who have struggled with various symptoms due to their hormone levels.
Male and female BHRT can be administered using several different methods including BHRT pellets, topical creams, and injections. The method used will depend on individual factors and will be discussed between you and your doctor.
BHRT for Men
Hormone levels that are low or imbalanced in men can impact everything from muscle mass to cognitive function. Male andropause can happen when testosterone levels begin to decline. If you are experiencing symptoms of andropause, it is important to talk to your doctor. BHRT treatment may be the right choice for you.
BHRT for Women
While menopause is an expected and necessary part of aging, the symptoms that go along with menopause don’t have to be part of the experience. Mood swings, hot flashes, low libido, and more may all be able to be managed through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. BHRT therapy can also be used with women of any age who are struggling with hormone-related symptoms.
How Can Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Help?
1. It Can Minimize Menopausal/Andropausal Symptoms
During menopause, the body stops producing as many hormones such as estrogen and progesterone. This can lead to unpleasant symptoms. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy delivers the hormones that your body is no longer producing as much of to help alleviate symptoms. These hormones are chemically identical to those produced by your body.
2. It Can Improve The Mood
Hormones play a key role in the mood by regulating neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine. An imbalance can cause symptoms such as anxiety, depression, and irritability. BHRT therapy can restore these balances to allow your mood to be better regulated.
3. It Can Improve Sexual Function and Libido
Low testosterone levels can impact male sexual function by causing erectile dysfunction and reduced sexual desire. For women, low testosterone or low estrogen levels can result in uncomfortable symptoms such as vaginal dryness along with a lowered sexual desire and difficulty reaching orgasm. Methods such as BHRT pellet therapy are designed to restore low hormone levels to improve sexual function and libido.
4. It Can Increase Energy Levels
Hormones such as testosterone, progesterone, and estrogen play a role in energy production. They help to regulate metabolism, increase muscle strength, and improve sleep, all of which can impact the energy levels that you have throughout the day. Through BHRT treatment, fatigue, and low energy levels can be resolved.
5. It Can Improve Sleep
Testosterone plays a role in the regulation of your sleep-wake cycle while estrogen and progesterone can impact the quality of sleep that you have during the night. An imbalance in any of these hormones can lead to problems with falling asleep, staying asleep, or overall sleep quality, which can be resolved using BHRT pellets or other methods.
6. It Can Improve Cognitive Function
Many of your cognitive functions, including memory function, attention and focus, and protection against different types of dementia, can be impacted by hormones. They can be both regulative and protective for your brain, leading to either cognitive health or decline depending on whether the levels are balanced. If you are experiencing a lack of focus, difficulty remembering details, or other cognitive symptoms, hormone pellets may help.
7. It Can Benefit the Skin
While BHRT treatments can sometimes cause acne as your body adjusts to the treatment, over time these treatments can help to improve the health and appearance of the skin. Hormones are involved with oil production, collagen production, hydration, and pigmentation of the skin. By helping your body to have the right amount of each type of hormone, we can help your skin to have a more even texture and color and to be thicker and more elastic.
8. It Can Improve Bone Health
Estrogen is an important hormone for making bones strong, particularly in women, while testosterone is crucial for bone strength in men. These hormones can also affect calcium absorption by impacting vitamin D levels in the body. BHRT therapy can often be used to improve bone health, helping the bones stay strong even as you age.
9. It Can Be a Good Anti-Aging Treatment
BHRT pellet therapy can be a good overall anti-aging treatment because it can help to get at the root cause of the symptoms of aging rather than simply treating externals. By improving bone health, skin health, energy levels, and more, we can help you to continue feeling and looking your best as you age.
10. It Can Help With Weight Loss
If you have been having a difficult time losing weight or if you are gaining fat despite a rigorous diet and exercise routine, it may be your hormones that are to blame. Hormone pellets can speed up your metabolism, reduce inflammation, improve energy levels, and help increase muscle mass, all of which can aid in weight loss.
