The benefits of bioidentical hormones far outweigh the risks. Bioidentical hormones are most commonly prescribed to treat symptoms of hormonal imbalance in women and men, such as hot flashes, night sweats, loss of libido, fatigue, weight gain, mood swings and irritability. Many doctors believe that women and men who opt for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy BHRT instead of undergoing traditional (synthetic) hormone replacement therapy (HRT) will experience less adverse reactions. The side effects of BHRT are usually mild if present at all.
Some of the benefits of using bioidentical hormones include:
- Reduced osteoporosis and restoration of bone strength
- Reduced hot flashes and vaginal dryness
- Better maintenance of muscle mass and strength
- Improved cholesterol levels
- Reduced risk of endometrial and breast cancer
- Reduced risk of depression
- Improved sleep
- Better mood, concentration and memory
- Improved libido
- Reduced risk of Alzheimer's disease
Many patients opt for BHRT because it strays away from the one-size-fits-all approach. Each bioidentical hormone regimen is custom-compounded, based on each patient's individual diagnostic results, making them not only safer, but also more effective than traditional synthetic hormones.
