29 Oct The Top 5 Ways Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) Can Help You Feel More Like Your Young Self Again
BHRT, also known as Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, has become one of the most talked about advancements in modern medicine. As we age the hormones our body naturally produces start to decline and can have issues with maintaining balance. When this happens, many people experience side effects such as fatigue, decreased libido, poor concentration, weight gain, and hot flashes. BHRT is a unique therapy that provides your body with the same exact chemical structure as hormones naturally made by the human body to restore your body’s natural hormonal balance.
When your hormones aren’t in balance it can make you feel older, weaker, and less like yourself. While there is no real way to turn back the clock, keeping your hormones balanced can help you feel like your younger self again. If you are curious about BHRT and what it can do for you, take a look at our top five ways BHRT can help you feel more like your young self again.
1. Improve Skin Tone and Texture
For many women, aging means skin becomes drier, thinner, and rougher. Countless products, treatments, and procedures are currently on the market to help restore skin’s hydration, thickness, and texture. However, balancing your hormones with BHRT can help restore skin from the inside out by reestablishing the amount of progesterone in the system, which helps maintain skin’s elasticity.
2. Increased Energy
When you balance your hormones with BHRT, it can bring a significant boost to your daily energy levels and improve your mental function. BHRT supports your thyroid’s functions, which is the system that controls energy. So, when age is starting to make you feel tired and foggy, BHRT can give you that boost of energy that your body needs to feel like your younger self again.
3. Better Sleep
Did you know that hormones support a good night’s rest? And that a lack of sleep can cause premature aging? Since hormones regulate energy, if they are out of sorts, you may have trouble sleeping well. This definitely effects your energy levels, mood, and causes irritability. While you may not be able to turn back time, you can go back to a time when you got better sleep and felt more fresh and rested.
4. Improved Muscle Tone
Body weight and muscle tone issues are common side effects of aging. With BHRT, the body gets the amount of testosterone it needs to be its healthiest. Even women need testosterone. It can help with exercise tolerance and muscle endurance so you can maintain the toned, youthful looking physique that you desire.
5. Increased Libido
As we age, our libido can often take a hit. In most situations, this low libido is caused by a hormonal imbalance. If you can achieve the proper balance with BHRT, you can maintain a higher sex drive and feel like a younger version of yourself again.
