Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy using the pellet has the potential to change the way a female can age. There was a time when peri-menopause and menopause was looked at as another part of life to be accepted and endured by a woman. However, today, it is widely understood that a lady does not have to accept hormonal imbalance as a difficult reality. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy has not only helped to improve a woman’s quality of life, but also how long she will live that life. So why should you live with less quality of life when the solution is as simple as restoring and balancing hormones?
Estrogen is a woman’s most important and predominant hormone. Before the availability of hormone replacement therapy, the decline and imbalance of estrogen would put a woman at increased and unnecessary risk for heart disease, colon cancer, impaired vision, premature ovary failure, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, tooth loss, Parkinson’s disease and diabetes. The longer a woman goes without the protective shield of her most important hormone – estrogen – the greater her risk for serious health consequences of these conditions.
Estrogen receptors are found in many of the organs of the body and throughout the brain. That is the reason why hormone imbalance produces varied symptoms which includes loss of skin elasticity, shrinking bones, irritability and cognitive decline. But, when estrogen levels are brought back up the positive effect is an increase in serotonin levels available in the spaces between the brain’s nerve cells. This improves mood. What this tells us is that within the brain, estrogen may act as a natural antidepressant and/or mood stabilizer. So it then becomes essential that a woman dealing with premature ovary failure or surgical menopause seek a consultation from a qualified bio-identical hormone replacement therapy physician.
Testosterone therapy will give a woman back her mental clarity, sex drive and muscle tone and muscle mass. When testosterone is low, women often complain of mental confusion, weight gain and poor muscle tone, even with regular exercise.
The negative effects of hormone deficiencies on the brain, muscles, bones, heart and metabolism can be significant without hormone replacement therapy for women. And it can be very dangerous to long-term health. The brain needs normal amounts of testosterone in balance with estrogen to produce serotonin, which supports emotional balance. When lacking in these hormones, a woman will experience emotional instability that often results in increased anxiety, irritability, sleep disturbances, anger, sadness and depression.
