Many women are struggling with uncomfortable symptoms that leave them feeling out-of-sorts and basically not themselves most days of the week. Often, these symptoms are related to changes in the body due to menopause while other times they are related to hormonal changes coming from other parts of the body. No matter what the cause of them are, they are difficult to live with because they may make it difficult to sleep, hard to lose weight and nearly impossible to feel even-keeled and anxiety-free most days of the week. With hormone replacement therapy, you can find relief from some of your worst symptoms through the balancing of your hormones. You can get your body back to feeling normal through natural methods and can feel energized and more like yourself again.
What are Bio-Identical Hormones?
Bio-identical hormones are so-named because they are molecularly identical to the hormones found naturally in your body. Therefore, they can work better and provide better results while keeping unwelcome symptoms that are typically associated with older forms of hormone replacement therapy at bay. These hormones are made from certain chemicals that are extracted from plants. They are well-loved because they come from more natural sources. Your body will be unable to differentiate between the hormones it makes itself and the bio-identical hormones that you take.
How Can They Help You?
Bio-identical hormones should be used if you are experiencing moderate to severe symptoms of menopause. If you simply do not feel like yourself any longer, these could be the answer to getting you back to normal for the next few years. You may want to consider them if you are dealing with the emotional side of menopause, such as with anger, depression, anxiety or forgetfulness. They are also a good choice if you have significant physical symptoms, including fatigue, hot sweats and insomnia. They may even be able to help you decrease your chance of developing osteoporosis.
Should You Use Them?
Ultimately, it is up to you and your doctor as to whether or not bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is right for you. This is a personal decision, and you will need to consider the pros and cons of it before making your choice. You will also want to discuss any possible side effects with your doctor so that you can know what to expect.
While bio-identical hormones are not for every person, they are certainly helpful for many people, particularly for those in middle age who are nearing or going through menopause. Be sure that you have an honest chat with your doctor before you begin taking them yourself, and let him or her know if you have any unwanted changes from or concerns about your hormone replacement therapy during the program. Also, keep in mind that you will not need to take these hormones forever. They are usually used for a short time to get you through a specific period.
