A decline in hormone production is a natural part of aging in both men and women. Although it typically starts in the 30’s, most people don’t feel the full effects of declining hormones until they are closer to middle age. For men, the first indication is often problems with sexual performance and feeling like they have no ambition. Women, who are typically more in-tune with their bodies due to the monthly menstrual cycle, may complain of mood swings, weight gain, and a lowered sex drive.
Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance
The following are typical symptoms of hormone imbalance in both men and women:
- Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance in both Men and Women
- Hot flashes and night sweats

- Low libido

Regardless of your age, gender, or specific symptoms, you can find relief with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).
What is Bioidentical or Natural Hormone Replacement?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy treats hormone deficiencies caused by aging, stress, or poor lifestyle habits using only molecules that are identical to the hormones found in the human body. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy differs from traditional hormone replacement therap,y which includes animal-derived and invented molecules that are similar to, but not identical, to human hormones.
Synthetic hormones are manufactured in laboratories, for mass consumption, in other words, one-pill-fits-all. Because they are synthetic and not natural, they can produce unwanted side effects like nausea, fluid retention, and dizziness, and there are also potential dangers like the increased risk of breast or uterine cancer.
Bioidentical Hormones, contrary to synthetic hormones, are extracted from natural sources, plants like soybean and wild yams, and they can also be compounded to suit specific hormone replacements needs, allowing men and women to receive individualized treatment.
Some advantages of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy are an improved look and feel of hair and skin, weight loss, improved sex drive, improved mental health, lower cholesterol levels, decreased risk of osteoporosis, and a decreased risk of heart attack and strokes.
