As people get older, their hormone levels change. This is especially true for women, who go through perimenopause and then menopause. These hormone changes trigger all kinds of often unpleasant effects in the body. People may become tired more often and may also become more at risk for serious diseases like breast cancer.
A solution for these problems is available through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. HRT has a lot of benefits, and many of them are noticeable very quickly.
According to the video posted here, the benefits include a 50% lower risk of heart attack and stroke, a 50% lower risk of breast cancer, a lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease, and a lower risk of osteoporosis. The benefits also include increased libido, improved quality of life, reduced risk of obesity, reduced anxiety, depression, and insomnia, and higher energy levels.
With so many potential benefits, many patients could potentially benefit from hormone replacement therapy. If you are getting older and are having trouble with any of the problems that HRT could address, it could be worth talking to your doctor about your treatment options. Start with your primary care doctor, who can refer you to a specialist if needed.
