Many patients that walk through our door don’t understand the importance of maintaining a healthy hormone balance. When you think hormones, you probably think puberty-esque teens in a constant battle with acne. But, the truth is, our hormones play a major role in keeping us happy and healthy at every age.
Hormone imbalance can be caused by a number of factors such as menopause, perimenopause, andropause (men), and unbalanced lifestyle habits. You may have a hormone deficiency if you experience such symptoms as mood swings, decreased libido, depression, chronic fatigue, thyroid dysfunction, or significant changes in weight. Meanwhile, some patients aren’t even aware of their symptoms until they’re gone.
Patients who are hormone-deficient are more likely to have long-term health risks as well. Both men and women with hormonal imbalances are susceptible to heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, infertility, and certain types of cancer. It’s important to keep your hormone levels in check to protect yourself from chronic diseases.
At RevitaLifeMD, we recommend bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) treatments to patients with a variety of health concerns. Bio-identical hormones are made from the same molecular structure of those existing in the body. They mimic hormones that are vital to our optimal health.
How Does Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy Work?
The process is a simple one. At your appointment, one of our specialists will perform a blood test to determine which hormones your body is currently lacking. From there, we’re able to create an individualized treatment plan designed to treat any symptoms you may be experiencing.
Several weeks post-treatment, we’ll ask you to come in for a re-evaluation. At which point we’ll talk to you about you are responding to treatment and adjust your BHRT therapy accordingly. Our priority at RevitaLifeMD is to help you look and feel your best-self possible.
It can take up to 3-months to see the full effects of your BHRT treatments. During this time, your body will slowly begin to regulate hormones properly. You’ll notice gradual improvement with digestive issues, sleep patterns, mood, libido, metabolism, and more. Many of our current patients report life-changing results from their hormone replacement therapies, and you can too.
