Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement
As a natural consequence of aging, hormone production declines for both men and women. Hormone depletion of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone for women can cause symptoms, such as hair loss, low libido, anxiety, insomnia, bone loss, loss of skin elasticity, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and memory loss for women. Men may experience low testosterone, which can contribute to low libido, abdominal weight gain, loss of erections, hair loss, exercise intolerance, and depression.
While these symptoms are considered normal and common from a conventional medical perspective they can decrease one’s quality of life. Restoring them to normal levels can drastically change the course of one’s life. It is well established in the medical literature for example that cognitive decline is directly linked to estrogen deficiency and that low levels of testosterone increases a man’s risk of all cause mortality-anything that could cause death.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is the use of small amounts of hormones that look identical to your body’s own production of hormones, that are metabolized in the same pathways that your own hormones are metabolized and excreted. They are made from natural substances and are weaker than synthetic preparations of hormone replacement. Holistica providers have been prescribing bio-identical hormone replacement for the restoration of vitality and health for over 20 years and have extensive experience with all aspects of hormone replacement, from testing protocols to which pharmacies deliver the best product.
