Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a treatment option that is used to alleviate a number of conditions related to imbalances and deficiencies of hormones within your body. Hormones and the glands that secrete them into the bloodstream make up the endocrine system. Hormones are chemical messengers that travel through your body until they find where they are needed. Hormones affect virtually every part of your body, so when you experience problems with them, the symptoms that result can be pretty severe. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy uses bioidentical hormones to supplement your body with the hormones it is not producing on its own. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can be prescribed and administered by your local Bioidentical Hormone Doctor. The Bioidentical Hormone Hormones doctors at Nava Health Center of Bethesda have years of experience treating men and women suffering from any number of hormone-related conditions.
How BHRT Can Help You Get Back To You
When women stop producing estrogen and men slow down their production of testosterone, it seems obvious that restoring the balance they once had can make them feel better. However, most mainstream doctors fail to see the connection. They are trained to diagnose and treat disease. Since hormone imbalance is not an illness, they are at a loss for what to do. LaKeischa McMillan, M.D. on the other hand, introduces hormones into your body that are identical in cell structure and purpose to what it previously manufactured on its own. Within one month of starting treatment, you may notice improvement in some or all of these areas:
Balanced moods: You no longer experience feelings of hostility, anxiety, or depression that you can’t explain. Your emotions are on a much more even keel.
Increased sex drive: Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy increases the libido of both genders to what it was before they started suffering the effects of hormone loss.
More regular sleep patterns: Hormone imbalance affects the hypothalamus, the area of the brain that regulates sleep. Restoring that balance helps decrease insomnia and gets you back to a more predictable pattern of sleep.
Fat loss and improved muscle mass: Low levels of estrogen makes it hard to lose body fat while low testosterone levels have a negative effect on muscle tone. Replacing these hormones helps to eliminate both problems.
