There are some aspects of aging that cannot be changed. One is that as we age, our body slows down the production of our intrinsic hormones until we no longer derive any benefit. No wonder we lose energy, sex drive mood, and appearance as we grow older. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way; here are 10 benefits of natural hormone therapy.
Natural Hormone Therapy
Natural hormones refer to hormones that are made from natural substances derived from plant and animal sources. Once these hormonal substances are obtained, they are processed to become bioidentical to our intrinsic hormones.
What Are Bioidentical Hormones
The word bioidentical refers to natural hormones that are chemically identical to the hormones produced by the human body. The bioidentical hormones that are professionally used in medical spas include estradiol, estriol, progesterone, and testosterone.
An out-of-balance endocrine system means that chemical messages sent out to energy production, metabolic and muscle tissues fail to make it to their target. Bioidentical hormones can help to recharge chemical messages and send them on their way.
Improve Weight Loss
Hormone levels and weight gain go hand-in-hand. Sometimes, hormonal changes cause water retention and bloating rather than an actual weight gain. Bioidentical hormones can help to re-balance metabolic and fluid imbalances.
Increase Sex Drive
No one likes to face the fact that a waning sex drive is part of aging. It no longer has to be that way. Bioidentical hormones can safely and naturally increase levels of the hormones involved in sex drive.
Strengthen Hair And Nails
When menopause arrives, hair and nails usually become thin and brittle because of low hormone levels. Bioidentical hormones can help to restore the structural support and strength of hair and nails.
Bioidentical hormones can improve sleep by promoting intrinsic sleep-promoting hormones.
The relationship between mood and hormone levels are well known. Lower levels of intrinsic estrogen and testosterone are linked to moodiness, anxiety, and difficulty concentrating. Bioidentical hormones can restore your sense of balance back, and has been shown to help to improve your mood and focus.
Decrease Joint Pain
As we age and our intrinsic hormone levels begin to decline, we lose the anti-inflammatory effects that we have enjoyed in our youth. Bioidentical hormones can help to relieve pain and inflammation, especially the discomfort related to arthritis.
Improve Bone Density /Decrease Osteoporosis Risk
The literature is flooded with quality research related to an age-related increase in osteoporosis and a decrease in bone density. Bioidentical hormones have been shown to increase bone density and decrease osteoporosis.
Improve Muscle Mass
Muscle mass is another feature that diminishes with aging, along with the decrease in overall hormone levels. Bioidentical hormones really shine in terms of improving muscle mass and indirectly by helping to tone and firm the contours of the body.
Our metabolism has a tendency to decrease with age, especially if our activity level decreases. Bioidentical hormones, will help to maintain your muscles and indirectly assist to boost metabolism.
Who doesn’t want better memory? As we age, our memory can wane, which is often directly from a low level of hormones. Bioidentical hormones have been shown to have a measurable positive effect on memory.
