3 Myths About Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy Debunked
If you're considering bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT for short) you may have asked around and heard different opinions from friends, family, and even practitioners. There are many myths floating around about the treatment. The 3 most common myths are:
Myth #1 : Only women benefit from BHRT
This is untrue. As men age, they too experience declining hormone levels, namely testosterone. This is called andropause and unlike menopause this happens gradually after a peak period in a man's early 30s. It includes symptoms such as fatigue, loss of libido and weight fluctuations so a customized BHRT treatment can help balance and restore natural testosterone levels.
Myth #2 : All hormone replacement treatments are the same
Unlike synthetic hormone replacement therapy, BHRT takes the specific person's needs. Rather than this one-size-fits-all approach, your BHRT program will be tailored to meet your unique hormonal needs.
Myth #3 : BHRT treatments won't address weight
After menopause begins, lower hormone levels mean less energy to expend on physical activity. A customized bio-identical hormone replacement therapy program can help balance your hormones to give you the extra help reaching your weight loss and maintenance goals.
