Balancing Hormones for Optimal Health: A Guide to Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Balancing Hormones for Optimal Health: A Guide to Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Life wears on us. The more experienced in life we become, the more support our bodies need from the inside out. Changes in our bodies are common, but not all changes have to be tolerated for the sake of maturing. Hormonal changes come with age, and eventually, we can no longer synthesize them as efficiently as we could in our younger years. Too often, this manifests as dry skin, a little weight gain, thinning hair, fatigue, low libido and intimacy difficulties. 

But there are solutions to balancing your hormones for optimal health. Explore how Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can help.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

BHRT is a hormone replacement technique that administers hormones identical in chemical makeup, shape, and structure to those naturally produced and used in the body. These hormones include estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and DHEA, and are primarily plant-derived.

The difference in incorporating bioidentical hormonal structures compared to synthetic hormone structures in a therapeutic regimen is that your body will experience a more typical response to bioidentical hormones compared to synthetic alternatives.

BHRT vs. Synthetic Hormones

Synthetic Hormones are often composed of chemical compounds made in a laboratory. Additionally, synthetic hormones often have greater side effects compared to bioidentical hormones, including nausea, bloating, headaches, and stomach cramps.

Bioidentical hormones are derived from plants, including soy. Soy specifically contains estradiol and estrogenic compounds that are metabolized very similarly in the body as self-produced estrogen.

Bioidentical hormones can also be adjusted more precisely than synthetic hormone dosages. Instead of choosing between too much and too little, BHRT allows you to calibrate what your body needs to feel the best. At Castle Rock Regenerative Healthcare, we are proud to partner with Biote Medical to offer BHRT pellets. We also offer bioidentical hormone creams. 

Hormone Therapy Risks And Benefits

Hormone therapy, synthetic or natural, comes with generally understood risks. These can include a higher instance of developing blood clots, experiencing a stroke, or developing gallbladder disease. Some other side effects can include bloating, nausea, stomach cramps, and headaches.

Bioidentical hormones, however, have a decreased instance of mild side effects compared to synthetic hormones, and they pose no greater risk for major side effects compared to synthetic hormone replacement.
