What Is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormone Therapy is a technique that uses natural hormones, ones that are identical to the ones found in your body, to help regulate and balance imbalances in your body. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a safer and more predictable method of balancing your body’s hormones. They match your body’s natural receptors and therefore are the most effective treatment for helping your revitalize your body’s natural system and restore balance.

Hormone Therapy aims to use specific hormones to increase the levels in the body of those hormones that are low. At Aqua Vitae, we determine this after a thorough evaluation and lab tests to verify low levels. For females the hormones typically used include:

  • estrodial, estriol
  • progesterone
  • testosterone (sometimes)
  • dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)
  • cortisol

Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone Replacement Therapy can be beneficial to women suffering from symptoms of perimenopause, menopause, adrenal fatigue, and thyroid disorders. In women, the symptoms often first appear in perimenopause or menopause, when estrogen, progesterone and testosterone production begins to diminish every year.

Some of the benefits of hormone therapy include:

  • Fewer hot flashes and less vaginal dryness
  • Reduced risk of depression
  • Improved sleep
  • Better mood, concentration and memory
  • Improved libido
  • Better maintenance of muscle mass and strength
  • Improved cholesterol levels
  • Reduced risk of endometrial and breast cancer
  • Reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease
  • Reduced osteoporosis and restoration of bone strength
