Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Dallas


If you are suffering from menopausal symptoms from lack of hormones, the preferred option for you may be bioidentical hormone therapy (BHT), particularly hormone pellet therapy. Bioidentical hormones are structurally the same as the natural hormones that your ovaries secreted when you were younger and premenopausal. When you get BHT, most likely you’ll feel better, menopoausal symptoms such as hot flashes resolve and your mental cognitive function will be clearer. Generally you’ll have more energy, your libido (sex drive) and your sexual performance will improve. Plus they’re safe, they do not increase your risks of having breast cancer or stroke, which has been seen in some hormone pills. Suzanne Summers popularized these in her book, Forever Young, and they usually fulfill their promise.

Hormone therapy is indeed anti-aging action and could help your mind and body stay healthier and younger. Proper hormonal balance can help you decrease body fat and increase your lean body mass. Many people find they can lose weight and keep it off better. Hormones can make your skin look younger by improving the collagen and elasticity of your skin. They can promote and improve better deeper sleep patterns.

An advantage of bioidentical hormones for you is they can be titrated appropriately to meet your individual hormonal needs. The dosage for you is individualized for your particular metabolism so you can achieve the maximum effects from them. This is especially true when BHT is given in the form of Pellets. Pellets are small packets of hormones that are inserted subcutaneously and will provide you with hormones in a slow release form over a few months and they work very well.
