What You Need to Know About Hormone Replacement Therapy
Talking about hormones can be a touchy subject for some people, especially if they fear a hormone imbalance could be effecting their life. That’s why we love Impact Medical in Fort Collins. They empower people to get back to their best lives in a safe, effective way.
Too often people think hormone imbalances only affect people’s sex drives or performance. But the truth is, hormones impact many of our body systems and there are lots of ways a hormone imbalance could be keeping you from thriving.
What is a Hormone Imbalance and How Would I Know If I Have One?
It’s common for people to lose hormones throughout their lives. But it isn’t just older men and women in menopause who experience hormone imbalances. Symptoms for men and women differ and you can find a full list of symptoms on Impact Medical’s website. But some of them include low sex drive, weight/fat gain, loss of muscle mass, low energy, depression, and more.
How Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Can Help
Impact Medical uses BioTE hormone pellets that are inserted under your skin two to four times a year to restore optimal hormone levels to your body. This method makes the process far simpler than remembering to take a pill every day. And the advantage of using a bioidentical hormone is that we already know how the body reacts to it, unlike synthetic hormones, or even naturally occurring hormones from plants. An article from Harvard explains,
“The interest in a more natural approach to hormone therapy has focused attention on bioidentical hormones — hormones that are identical in molecular structure to the hormones women [or men] make in their bodies.”
Bioidentical hormones are seamlessly accepted by your body and begin to improve your well-being right away.
