Benefits of Hormone Replacement TherapyPosted: Feb 04 in Hormone Therapy by Staff
For support in overcoming the uncomfortable symptoms associated with aging, hormone replacement therapy in Fayetteville and Syracuse can help.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy uses synthetically developed hormones that are identical to the hormones in your body to balance your natural levels and production of hormones. As you age, the level of hormones, including estrogen, progesterone and testosterone, begin to naturally decline. Many of the symptoms of aging are actually a direct result of these fluctuating hormone levels. The goal of hormone replacement therapy is to lessen or eliminate those symptoms, providing you with a more comfortable and youth-like way of being.
What Hormone Replacement Therapy can do
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is recommended for reducing or reversing the symptoms of hormone fluctuations that occur with age. When used in combination with a comprehensive anti-aging therapy program, which takes into account dietary choices, activity level, and other behaviors, hormone replacement therapy can help you achieve an overall healthier and more comfortable lifestyle.
Hormone replacement therapy can reduce or eliminate symptoms like:
- Hot flashes
- Mood swings
- Sexual discomfort
- Weight gain
- Bone density loss
Low-dose hormone replacement therapy has been found as both a safe and effective anti-aging therapy for overcoming symptoms like those listed above, and is beneficial in both men and women.
Benefits for Women
A great deal of research has been dedicated to the risks and benefits of hormone replacement therapy for post-menopausal women. In recent years, it has been found that women who experience early-menopause are especially likely to benefit from hormone replacement therapy.
For these women, beginning hormone replacement therapy prior to the age of 45 can reduce your risk of:
- Coronary heart disease
- Anxiety, depression and other mental health concerns
- Early death
The exact benefits of hormone replacement therapy will vary based on your age, personal health history, and symptomology experienced as a result of hormone fluctuations. For more information about hormone replacement therapy, talk with Dr. Scinta.
