Identical to the hormones made in the human body, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is safe. Because the hormones are identical, they are compatible with the body. This decreases the risk of side effects and allows the body to respond naturally. We at Skin and Body Refinery would like the opportunity to elaborate on bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and its benefits.
Aging & Hormones
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is beneficial for both men and women as one of the most common reasons it is used is for the related hormone decline. Hormones decline and become imbalanced when people endure stress, poor lifestyle choices, lack of sleep and bad nutrition. Usually by the age of 30, the most prevalent male sex hormone testosterone, will start to decline. The testosterone has decreased approximately 35% and by mid 40s to early 50s and men by the age of 70 will only about 10% of the testosterone he had in his 20s. When the testosterone wanes, several functions may begin to become impaired. Estrogen and progesterone are the main sex hormones in women. These hormones decline in the time leading up to menopause, which is perimenopause that can last from 4-6 years prior to menopause. Menopause officially begins when a woman has not had a menstrual period for 12 consecutive months. Pregnenolone, insulin, DHEA, and melatonin are additional hormones that can be affected by hormone decline. Contributed to the lack of hormones is sleep quality, blood sugar, other sex hormone deficiencies, chronic illnesses, diseases, and other health issues.
