Hormone Therapy for Women
Licensed & Experienced
Bioidentical Hormones at Restorative Health
An imbalance of hormones in the female body at any age can trigger a host of unpleasant issues that you shouldn’t have to accept as your new normal. You don’t have to accept the changes your body goes through during menopause, and can instead feel more comfortable, healthier, and energized with help from our women’s hormone clinic.
As you age, the hormone levels in your body fluctuate and modify how your body functions. These hormones include estrogen, testosterone, cortisol, insulin, and thyroid - and changes in these directly affect your wellbeing. Hormone therapy balances these so that your body functions as it’s intended, and you feel like your regular - if not younger - self.
Is Hormone Therapy Right For You?
Why Use Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?
Unlike hormones derived from animals, bioidentical hormones come from plants. They are easier on your body than animal hormones because they have the same molecular structure as the hormones your body already produces on its own.
Bioidentical hormone therapy (BHRT) is fully customized to your needs to optimize your hormone balance to get the results you’re looking for, like:
Controlled hot flashes and night sweats
Improved sex life
Increased vaginal moisture for women
Strengthened bones and lowered risk of osteoporosis
Better sleep quality
Regulated body temperature
Reversed or slowed signs of aging
Women’s Hormone Replacement Can Help!
During menopause, a woman’s body decreases its production of estrogen. After menopause, estrogen production ceases altogether, which is unfortunate because of all the ways the hormone helps your body. For example, estrogen can help regulate food intake, body weight, and glucose metabolism. It also is an important part of bone and cholesterol health.
To help make up for the missing estrogen, you may need bioidentical hormone replacement therapy using one of two main types:
Systemic hormone therapy
Comes in a pill, patch, ring, gel, or cream and is absorbed throughout the body.
Low-dose vaginal products
These preparations come in cream, tablet, or ring form to minimize the amount of estrogen your body absorbs in order to treat the vaginal and urinary symptoms of menopause.
BHRT for Women Can Help With…
Moderate to severe hot flashes
Ease vaginal dryness, itching, and burning.
Prevent bone loss and fracture, such as a result of osteoporosis.
Decrease risk of health conditions associated with early menopause or estrogen deficiency
Depending on your estrogen levels and the cause of your hormonal imbalance, women also may need to take progesterone hormone in addition to estrogen.
