There are many benefits & relief from symptoms that we can experience with a proper Bioidentical replacement therapy program. Benefits such as increased energy, better mood, a sense of clarity, thinking better, feeling better, reduction in hair loss, reduction in anxiety and depression, increase muscle mass and sexual interests are each worth their weight in gold.
And then there are many other benefits that we don’t actually feel happening.
Benefit #1: Hormone replacement therapy is not only the most effective treatment for the relief of menopausal symptoms but HRT also has many benefits on other systems in the body.
Benefit #2: Hormone replacement therapy has been proven to prevent bone loss and increase bone deposition, thereby protecting against osteoporosis, and reducing fracture.
Benefit #3: It may also significantly protect against developing cancers, including colorectal cancer, which is the third most common cancer in both men and women.
Benefit #4: Hormone replacement therapy can decrease the risk of heart disease due to increasing the elasticity of the blood vessels allowing them to widen, and let blood flow more easily. When hormone levels decline, levels of LDL cholesterol (the bad kind) increase, and levels of HDL (the good kind) decrease. This may lead to the build-up of fat and cholesterol in the arteries.
Benefit #5: The hormones estrogen and progesterone also affect how your cells respond to insulin. Lower hormones may cause your blood sugar to go up and down. These fluctuations cause a higher risk of diabetes. High blood sugars and declining hormones can also contribute to the urinary tract and reproductive tract infections.
Benefit #6: Progesterone has many beneficial effects on other systems as well. It is a natural anti-inflammatory so it will improve joint pain, and relax smooth muscles. It has a neuroprotective component that promotes a calming effect on the brain, and improves the quality of sleep, influencing a better immune response.
By giving a balance of hormones, in the right amounts, not only can hormone replacement relieve negative symptoms, but it can also provide a positive impact on overall health.
