The Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a process that helps to maintain optimal hormone levels in aging men and women. As we age, our declining hormone levels can have a significant impact on many of our body functions. Symptoms that we characterize as age-related issues such as low energy, weight gain and loss of libido are all associated with a decline in hormone levels. Today, the experts at Emerge Medical & Well Spa will discuss the many benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

Why Choose Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

The goal of hormone therapy is to maintain a safe hormone level and help alleviate the symptoms commonly associated with aging. BHRT balances hormones such as testosterone, progesterone, and estrogen, maintaining the healthy levels that patients enjoyed when they were younger. Reduced levels of these hormones have a tremendous impact on our day-to-day wellness.

For many years, medical researchers have worked to safely balance these hormones, but not without difficulty. In the past, many patients suffered significant health issues after being treated with synthetic Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT).

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy represents an advanced treatment that is safer and more effective than synthetic alternatives. BHRT utilizes hormones that are biologically identical to the molecular structure of the hormones your own body creates. Emerge Medical & Well Spa is proud to offer advanced Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to our clients, delivering amazing benefits to health and beauty.
