Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Restore Balance To Your Life
Men and women throughout the US are affected by hormone imbalance due to a variety of causes like menopause, thyroid dysfunction, and more. Quintessa Wellness Center offers personalized, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to help alleviate symptoms and improve your day-to-day life.
What are Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are hormones identical, on a molecular level, to the ones naturally produced in our bodies. Hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are naturally occurring in the body and are commonly used as bioidentical hormones for replacement therapy or BHRT.
What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormones are chemical messengers secreted directly into the bloodstream that coordinate a majority of bodily functions. When we experience imbalances in hormone production, whether due to conditions like menopause, thyroid dysfunction, or daily stress, our bodies feel the negative impact at every level. Many men and women experience symptoms like hair loss, acne, low sex drive, memory loss, and more as a result of these imbalances.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy aims to alleviate symptoms of hormone imbalance in both men and women by introducing naturally occurring hormones, like estrogen and testosterone, back into the body. BHRT can be administered in several forms, such as:
The specialists at Quintessa Wellness Center will prescribe bioidentical hormone therapy either through topical ointment application or injections. The dosage of the BHRT application will vary depending on the patient’s needs and concerns. Reach out to our health & wellness specialists for more information on BHRT or to discuss your options.
In addition to BHRT, our specialists may also recommend changes in overall lifestyle, including diet and exercise, to support your journey and maximize the benefits of hormone replacement therapy.
Hormone Imbalance in Men
Aging plays a major role in hormone imbalance in men, but there are additional factors that may contribute to decreases in the production of testosterone, including genetics, diet and lifestyle, medications, injuries, and stress.
Most male hormone imbalance stems from these four major causes: hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, adrenal fatigue, and andropause (or, more commonly known as male menopause).
Additional signs of male hormone imbalance include:
- Cognitive decline, memory loss
- Weight gain
- Erectile dysfunction
- Low sex drive
- Loss of muscle mass
Hormone Imbalance in Women
One of the leading causes of hormone imbalance in women is menopause. A majority of aging women begin to experience menopause within their 40s – 50s, which is marked by a decrease in the levels of naturally occurring reproductive hormones estrogen and progesterone. With this decrease in reproductive hormone production, many women begin to experience symptoms like vaginal dryness, hot flashes/night sweats, brain fog, and mild depression.
Additional signs of hormone imbalance in women (for both menopause and other causes) include:
- Acne (face, chest, and/or upper back)
- Hair loss
- Heavy periods
- Hirsutism (excess body hair)
- Hot flashes
- Irregular periods
- Loss of interest in sex
