Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy
The benefits of bioidentical hormones far outweigh the risks. Bioidentical
hormones are most commonly prescribed to treat symptoms of hormonal imbalance in women and men, such as hot flashes, night
sweats, loss of libido, fatigue, weight gain, mood swings and irritability. Many doctors believe that women who opt for bioidentical
hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) instead of undergoing traditional (synthetic) hormone replacement therapy (HRT) will experience
less adverse reactions. The side effects of BHRT are usually mild if present at all.
Some of the benefits of using bioidentical hormones include:Improve or eliminate
PMS - PMDD Improved energyReduced osteoporosis and restoration
of bone strengthReduced hot flashes and vaginal drynessReduce
weight (body fat)Better maintenance of muscle mass and strengthHelp
with hair loss or unusual hair growthImprove some skin issuesHelp
in treating PCOSImproved cholesterol levelsReduced risk of endometrial
and breast cancerReduced risk of depressionImproved sleepBetter mood, concentration and memoryImproved sex driveReduced
risk of Alzheimer's disease
Many patients opt for BHRT because it strays away from the one-size-fits-all
approach. Each bioidentical hormone regimen is custom-compounded, based on each patient's individual diagnostic results, making
them not only safer, but also more effective than traditional synthetic hormones.
provides state-of-the-art blood and saliva testing in order to accurately assess the patient's hormone levels. Based on the
evaluation, Dr. Saylor will then customize a hormone regimen, individually tailored to address the patient's specific
needs. We have helped women and men since 1994 balance their hormones naturally and improve their overall health,
using a combination of bioidentical hormone therapy, phytotherapy, diet, and lifestyle plans.
