Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is an age old remedy, many doctors and their patients are just learning of this option. Bioidentical Hormone Therapy is in the forefront of anti-aging treatment and for many doctors the newest method for helping cure much that ails the menopausal woman as well as the andropausal male.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) balances and restores the hormones your body begins to lose due to the aging process. Scientific evidence demonstrates that the depletion of hormone levels usually begins in most patients after the age of 30 and continues to decline with age. With these changes present, patients begin to experience the loss of energy, loss of sleep, reduced sex drive and even early symptoms of menopause in women and andropause in men.
As the name indicates, bioidentical hormones are identical in structure to the natural hormones produced in the human body. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy differs from traditional hormone replacement therapy, which uses synthetic hormones, produced from animals which are foreign to the human body and can cause side effects. The great appeal of bioidentical hormones is that they are natural, and our body can identify and metabolize them as it was designed to do.
The bio-identical hormone medications that Dr. Poon offers can be matched specifically to each individual’s needs, man or woman, something that is difficult with mass-produced synthetic hormones.
No two patients are alike. Therefore, it is necessary to take a customized approach when treating the symptoms of their patients. The use of compounding pharmacies is a key factor in the successful treatment of hormone imbalance. Bio-identical hormone therapy clinicians work very closely with their compounding pharmacist in order to prescribe and administer a treatment that is specifically designed to balance the hormones of each individual patient. Combining hormone balancing with the correction of other environmental and lifestyle factors provides the best chances for success in reducing the risk of cancer, heart attack and stroke.
Don’t wait if you are experiencing symptoms of hormone imbalance. In general, hormones begin to decline after the mid-20s and hormone imbalance symptoms are frequently present by the mid-30s.
