Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is hormone imbalance? 

Hormonal imbalance happens when hormone production diminishes, usually due to the aging process. Hormones are the chemical messengers of the body which are released to manage processes like metabolism, growth, sexual development, and reproduction.

Natural hormone production typically declines for both men and women beginning between ages 40 and 50. Hormone imbalance may cause a wide range of distressing symptoms.

Besides aging, other causes of hormonal imbalance include adrenal fatigue, thyroid disease, and metabolic issues. Whatever the underlying cause of your hormone imbalance, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) may restore your balance and improve your symptoms.

What are the symptoms of hormone imbalance?

As testosterone levels fall for men and estrogen and progesterone hormone levels drop for women, you may experience symptoms that include:

  • Weight gain
  • Limited energy
  • Hair loss 
  • Unwanted hair
  • Low sex drive
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Mood swings 
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Poor concentration
  • Memory loss
  • Fatigue
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)

An essential part of your holistic hormone-balancing treatment plan is to establish which symptoms you may have and their degree of severity. Your symptoms of hormonal imbalance are unique, so the team customizes your BHRT. 

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

BHRT is a customized treatment plan for restoring hormonal balance in men and women. Derived from plants, bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to your natural hormones. 

This nature-based approach to hormone replacement offers a safe and effective way to control your symptoms and get you back to feeling your best. 

The team at Kaya Health & Wellness works with a compounding pharmacist who creates a hormone replacement protocol that exactly matches your needs. With BHRT, you only get the hormones you need so you can avoid side effects common to more traditional forms of hormone replacement. 

The practice offers BHRT in the form of pills, transdermal creams, or pellets, which your provider places just below the skin. The team develops your BRHT profile after a full physical assessment, health history, and specific symptoms.

For a comprehensive evaluation and to see how BHRT can improve your hormonal imbalance, call the office or schedule an appointment with Kaya Health & Wellness.
