What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement?
Structurally and functionally identical to human hormones, Bioidentical Hormones are unique to any other form of hormone replacement therapy; their identical nature allows them to be quickly accepted and used in the body. They fit like a lock and a key with the body’s cell receptors, whereas non-identical hormones are often partially recognized in the body and often take up cell receptor sites that they should not be attached to. Because Bioidentical Hormones are an exact fit to cells and mimic the body’s hormones, most patients do not experience unpleasant side effects.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a common term for the treatment of conditions caused by the effects of hormone deficiencies resulting from natural aging or hormone-related conditions. There are numerous benefits that come from the use of Bioidentical Hormones. Many of these benefits are substantial and often may include:
- Improved sexual performance
- Improved lipid and cholesterol levels
- Improved prostate health
- Improved blood sugar balance
- Improved mood and outlook
- Increased focus and concentration
- More strength and energy
- Improved well being
- Greater libido
- Reduced aches and pains
- Better quality of sleep
- Improved muscle mass
Getting Started With Bioidentical Hormones
Chicago Bioidentical Hormone Doctor, Ayesha Akbar, M.D., will start by testing an individual’s hormone levels to check for imbalances. Upon determining imbalances, the patient will start on a customized Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy program. Dr. Akbar typically prescribes Bioidentical Hormones in a pellet form. Pellet therapy uses hormones derived from natural plant sources to replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels. Patients have found that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is extremely effective. Implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones that provide optimal therapy.
