What Exactly Is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Many age-related health issues are the result of hormonal imbalances in the body. For example, women deal with menopause, while men experience andropause and low testosterone due to reduced levels of hormones. When the endocrine system produces excessive or reduced levels of hormones, such as testosterone, estrogen and progesterone, the fluctuation in levels can wreak havoc on your body.
Hormone replacement therapy, also commonly referred to as bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, is a safe solution to hormonal imbalance that can help improve a number of conditions. Certain hormone treatments are called bioidentical or natural because the types of hormones used are chemically identical to those produced by the human body. Hormone replacement can increase or balance hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and adrenal hormones.
Though unavoidable, this decline in hormones, which peaks in healthy adults during their 20s and early 30s, begins to decline around our mid-30s to early 40s and continues to remain at lower levels for the rest of our lives. These changes can affect your physical and mental health in many ways. HRT for women and men can help control how rapidly these changes occur and help you to adapt more comfortably.
