Balancing Hormones With BHRT For Women Can Be Tricky, But Once Optimized The Difference Is Night And Day

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy: Testing andTreatment

There’s been a significant amount of research and publiciy aboutBioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). Fortunately, there havetremendous advancement in treatment options and medication for treatingmenopause symptoms with hormones. Most women don’t even know that there are safeoptions for the optimization and balancing of hormones. Bioidentical hormoneshave been shown to be highly successful for women seeking to relieve the symptomsof aging.

Synthetic vs. Bio-IdenticalHormones

The safer choice for our patients is to use hormones identicalto those that a woman make on their own, otherwise known as native estrogens.(estradiol, estriol, and estrone are the main ones produced in a womens body inthe greatest levels). These hormones are considered bio-identical, are they aremade from yams and soy and once synthesized, they are distributed out ofspecialty pharmacies to patients.

Regular Testing and Customized TreatmentPlans

Testing must be a regular protocol for each patient whenstarting and undergoing any BHRT program. When one hormone is out of balance,it can have a domino effect of the entire endocrine system and other hormonelevels often follow suit and begin to fluctuate. When woman’s ovarian reserves startto decline at perimenopause, their thyroid, adrenal, and other hormones begin toincrease production to make up for the imbalance. Having total hormone optimizationso that the levels are all steady and balanced will ensure better health for apatient.

Regardless of the type of estrogen a woman may be using; theyshould be tested at least annually, and be prescribed a program that has theappropriate-dose estrogen effective for them. Customized treatment programsneed to be customized to each individual, and should determine how each individualwoman’s metabolizes estrogen, progesterone or any other hormones used.

Take Charge of your health

Not only is it beneficial for some woman to supplement their ownhormones to achieve a healthy balance, but women should be aware of thepossible risks from external hormones that they unknowingly may ingest or becomeexposed to on a daily basis. Some of these external hormones often include estrogenmimicking environmental toxins which an be often found in some foods, plastics,lotions, deodorants, cleaning supplies, antibacterial products, cosmetics,sunscreens, and more. The list of endocrine disrupting products is truly quitedisturbing and excessive.

Being proactive and well educated is paramount for achieving thebest health possible: getting tested annually, mammograms and breast exams and simplelifestyle changes will all help contribute to a happier and healthier  person with optimized hormone levels. It takesa little effort to achieve the results we want and deserve. Whereas asmedication will certainly help on its own, having a few lifestyle changes tomaximize your body’s ability to function will make a significant difference.Its’ important to seek to an experienced physician who understands the balance neededand what we can do to ensure a long, happy healthy life. With close to twodecades of experience in BHRT, we strive to help our patients find a natural healthybalance to their not just their hormones but their lives.
