Bioidentical Hormones

Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for Women

Balanced hormones (estrogen, progesterone, testosterone) are essential for good health and disease prevention as we age. Hormone balance is needed for your body to function optimally. As a woman ages, her body becomes less effective in producing these vital hormones. Radiance Medspa in San Antonio, TX, is dedicated to helping women achieve hormonal balance with bioidentical hormone therapy.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy closely matches the chemical composition of the patient’s natural hormones. This greatly reduces the chance of any adverse effects.

The FDA-approved bioidentical hormones used in the treatment have undergone safety testing and passed the FDA’s stringent tests, and they are considered safe to use.

The choice to use any sort of hormone therapy is taken jointly by you and your healthcare professional after carefully assessing the potential complications and benefits. Discuss the treatment with Dr. Laura Bennack during a personalized consultation.

Causes and Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance

Women of all ages can suffer from hormonal imbalance. This can be due to early menopause, perimenopause, menopause, vitamin deficiency, medication side effects, extreme exercise, fatigue, stress levels, and more.

The more common symptoms that may be noticed:

  • Weight Gain
  • Difficulty Sleeping
  • Hot Flashes
  • Mood Swings
  • Depression
  • Low Sex Drive
  • Fatigue
  • Memory Loss
  • Irritability
  • Anxiety
  • Premenstrual symptoms
  • Vaginal Dryness

Often these symptoms are misdiagnosed and women are given sleeping pills, anti-anxiety medications, or anti-depressants and are labeled with other disorders.

Developing Your Bioidentical Hormone Treatment

Dr. Laura Bennack and staff develop a natural female hormone replacement treatment that is personalized for each woman who suffers the symptoms of hormone imbalance, whether due to age or other factors to best remedy those symptoms. The delivery methods for the prescribed hormones include creams, capsules, injections, and/or pellets placed just under the skin which can last for months.

It is important to consult with Dr. Bennack about which form of bioidentical hormones is suitable for you and your lifestyle. Once you begin this therapy, you will need to come in for follow-ups on a regular basis to assess your body’s response.

Benefits of Bioidentical Hormones

Bioidentical hormones are the closest thing to your natural hormones. These hormones can be created in a laboratory and tailored to your exact requirements.

Undergoing bioidentical hormone therapy can increase estrogen levels, resulting in increased vaginal lubrication and better sex drive.

Furthermore, bioidentical hormones have been shown to improve your body’s production of proteins such as collagen, which helps you look younger and restores the health of your nails and hair. They can also assist in promoting better sleep and enhancing your mood.

Through the use of bioidentical hormones, women can be relieved of many of the above symptoms. Further, these hormones can be protective against osteoporosis, heart disease, and other medical problems. Through treatment, normal hormone replacement therapy can make women feel healthier, younger, and more full of energy.
