Fatigue, memory problems, and headaches can seem like normal effects of aging, but sometimes they are a sign of a more significant hormonal imbalance. At Channell Wellness & Aesthetics, Dr. Patricia Guevara-Channell helps both male and female patients solve the underlying cause of these common symptoms through hormonal therapies such as Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).
What conditions does Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) treat?
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) helps those with low or out-of-balance hormones restore healthy hormone levels and improve their overall well-being. As we age, hormone levels naturally drop. Low hormone levels are especially common for women just before and after menopause.
BHRT can treat problems that may be caused by low hormones, including:
- Muscle mass loss
- Weight gain
- Sleep issues
- Low energy
- Hot flashes
- Mood swings
- Night sweats
- Lowered sexual drive
If you experience these symptoms for a prolonged period, Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy can restore normal hormone levels and help you feel better.
How does Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) work?
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) uses hormones that are identical on the molecular level to the hormones in your body to restore a more youthful balance.
These hormones are developed in a laboratory, are derived from plant-based compounds, and are structured the same way the hormones in your body are. Commonly replicated hormones include estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, and they can treat both men and women.
If you choose to undergo Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, your hormone levels are tested throughout the hormone therapy process to determine the proper balance to keep you safe and are adjusted as needed.
What results can I expect after undergoing Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help improve energy levels and sleep patterns within a few weeks. Other changes may take longer to take effect, such as increased sexual drive and hair regrowth. Each person has different hormonal needs, however, and the team will work with you to optimize your course of treatment.
Dr. Guevara-Channell and the Channell Wellness & Aesthetics team emphasize restoring hormones to normal levels to obtain optimal health as you age. When you feel off-balance, tired, and not yourself, it can seem overwhelming trying to determine which treatment is right for you.
