What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Many men and women suffer from hormonal imbalances, which may be caused by aging, stress, lack of sleep or other environmental and behavioral factors. These imbalances are the true root of many ailments and diseases.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy seeks to cure people of illnesses caused by hormonal imbalances by restoring the body’s natural hormonal balances. The therapy restores the proper hormonal balance by supplementing the body’s hormones with bioidentical hormones, which are molecularly identical to the hormones that are naturally produced. Since bioidentical and naturally produced hormones have the same molecular structure, the body can’t tell the two apart.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Many people, including both men and women, may benefit from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Because age is often a significant cause of hormonal imbalances, many people undergo therapy in their 40s and 50s. Age isn’t the only cause of hormonal imbalances, though. Patients who are suffering imbalances caused by stress, diet, lack of sleep, or another cause might benefit from the treatment regardless of age. If you’ve had an ongoing symptom or condition and traditional courses of treatment haven’t been effective, it may be time for a consultation with Dr. Tano.
What Is a Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Appointment Like?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy begins with hormonal tests that check for imbalances. Once these tests are complete, Dr. Tano will assess imbalances and prescribe bioidentical hormones. The patient usually administers These hormones on a regular basis, and they may come in the form of creams, drops or capsules.
After the initial appointment, a follow-up is usually scheduled within 90 days, with potential for another follow-up if needed. After these appointments, patients usually come in annually. At all of these appointments, patients review their therapy with their doctor, and any necessary adjustments are made.
