Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy with FitLife Med Spa

With age, our hormone levels naturally begin to decrease. Learn how to restore your body to its optimal state with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

Bioidentical simply means that the hormone has exactly the same molecular structure as the one naturally made by your body. This is important because your body recognizes it and can metabolize it normally. The term “bio-identical” does not indicate the source of the hormone, only its structure. Bioidentical hormones are made by processing hormone precursors found in plants like soy and yams.

The Aging Process

As men and women age, the endocrine gland slows its hormone production and our hormone levels begin to decrease and fall out of balance. Replacing those hormones can lead to a happier, healthier, fuller life for patients. The key to safe and effective hormone replacement therapy is the use of bioidentical hormones. The body cannot metabolize non bio-identical hormones in a normal manner; as a result, they persist in the body, exerting an abnormal effect and leading to medical problems.

When is the right time for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy can be used any time there is a hormone deficiency, but generally, women will become deficient in progesterone and/or testosterone in their late 30′s or early 40′s. A lack of estrogen usually doesn’t occur until shortly before or during menopause (average age of 51). Replacing all three hormones after menopause is usually necessary for optimal hormone balance.

Fabulous Over 40 - Hormones Treatment

Six major female hormones that we really need in order to feel fabulous. Over 40 is estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol, and some DHEA. Remember, these hormones are affected by our physical and emotional levels. Hormone declining is a problem for all of us, so as we get older, our estrogen declines, our progesterone declines, our testosterone declines.
Some of the positive effects that we have from estrogen is it controls hot flashes. Lots of us have had those hot flashes, maintains collagen in the skin, increases the serotonin. We really need to have body density. It can estrogen helps to maintain that. Increased bone strength helps prevent those neurodegenerative conditions. How many times have we gone to the doctor’s office and they’re like, oh, yes, your estrogen has declined. Why? Because you’re older, because you’re over 40. Don’t let them tell you that there isn’t anything you can do for that, because there is things that we can do to help them. The benefits of progesterone include enhancing your thyroid hormones. It’s good for your bones. It helps good sleep. It keeps your estrogen in check. So things like that are what’s good for with progesterone.
Okay, Some small facts about testosterone. Oh my gosh. How many of us have always thought testosterone is just for men? Well, that’s not true. Women also need testosterone. Testosterone again, starts to decline at the age of 30 to 40. Who would’ve thought that? No testosterone. We need testosterone for libido. Orgasms only men don’t have the libido problem. Women have libido problem. Testosterone helps to build bones. It decreases body fat. How many of us women always want, how do we decrease our body fat? Testosterone helps with muscle mass, improves mental clarity. Again, this is not only for men. Men do need this, but women need this as well. The positive effects for testosterone include breast protection, prostate protection, brain protection, improved memory. It helps with anxiety relief, increased energy, increased libido, and it reduces body fat. How many of us after the age of 40, start getting that body fat that we just can’t get rid of? No matter what diet we’re on, what kind of exercise we’re doing? Having testosterone in our bodies helps with this Cortisol. Cortisol is one of the body’s main hormones as well. Works right along with your testosterone, works alongside your estrogen. Cortisol. Lots of times we have been sold. You have that. Your cortisol is not at a level. You have that body fat, that mid fat. How many women say, we have this mid fat that we can’t take care of? Cortisol is one way to help with that. Weight loss,
Cortisol and body fat. Increased stress causes this. Cortisol stimulates insulin production, so insulin promotes fat storage. So if we can get that cortisol under control, then we take care of some of those problems.
Great. What is a bioidentical hormone replacement therapy? You don’t know how many times people have asked me, oh no, I can’t do hormones. I can’t do hormones. My provider has said, my GYN has says, don’t go on hormones. They cause cancer. Well, we went through that. Bioidentical hormones don’t cause cancer. So when we do this bioidentical replacement, it helps with mental clarity. You have a low sex drive. Let me help you with that sex drive. Let me give you some hormones. That’s going to help that. It helps with anxiety, depression, menopause. Again, with that menopause, your testosterone is low, your estrogen is low. You got low cortisol levels. With this enhancement that we do with the therapy replacement, it helps to bring that back, make you more youthful. Feel energy. It helps men with erectile dysfunction, osteoporosis. I’ve had a few women that have come in and talked to me and said, oh my gosh, Vera, you don’t know. Two years ago I had a DEXA scan. We know what a DEXA scan is, bone density. They’ve come on and they’ve done our replacement therapy. DEXA scan couple of years later have improved. Why? Because we’ve given them that testosterone that helps with that bone. We’ve given them the estrogen that has helped with that. They’re fibromyalgia. We never know where that fibromyalgia is coming from, but if you can get some of these hormone levels, then you have improvement on how you feel. It’s just an overwhelm feeling of feeling better with hormone replacement.
The benefits of it, I’ve talked about that memory loss, so it improves your memory loss. It helps with those hot flashes. It helps with those night sweats. It helps with those sleep issues. Lots of us, me included, have had a point where we’ve lost interest in sex because those hormones are low. Get these replacements and those hormones will help you to have more interest in the sex. Your partner will thank you for doing this. It helps with weight loss. You’ve got that weight gain. We got the benefits. We give you the testosterone, we give you the estrogen. It helps with that weight loss. It at least gives you the energy that you want to get out there and do something about the weight loss going into the exercises, the hot flashes. I’ve had so many women come, I’ve had hot flashes out there, help me with this hormone replacement. Come in a month later, two months later, no more hot flashes, sleeping like a baby, and they’re also making their partner happy with doing this. That’s what I have to say about hormone replacement. Feeling fabulous. Over 40.
