5 Reasons Bioidentical Hormone Therapy May be Right for You

Hormone troubles can be troubling as you age. Your hormones don’t have to control your life. Get a handle on them — and all o

Oh, hormones. They plague us in our teen years. And just when we think we can put hormonal problems behind us, they rear their ugly heads again. As we age, our body produces less of specific hormones. These changes can sap your energy and libido, cause you to lose muscle mass and gain weight, leave you feeling anxious and forgetful, and more.

Fortunately, you can do something to mitigate these unwelcome changes. With bioidentical hormone therapy, Jonathan W. Singer, DO helps his patients at HealthFirst feel like themselves again. Here are five things this treatment — which is available at our offices in Greenwood Village, Colorado, and Cheyenne, Wyoming — can do for you. 

#1: It combats the effects of aging and helps you feel normal again

The changes in your hormones are directly linked to aging. So it’s no surprise that a number of unwelcome changes that come with getting older — like slowed metabolism, reduced energy, and less libido — are connected to hormones. Replenishing your body’s hormone supplies slows these changes, helping you feel more youthful and more like yourself. 

#2: It helps you stay fit

Human growth hormone is a big part of your body’s ability to create muscle mass, maintain energy levels, and increase athletic ability. But this is another hormone your body creates less of as you age. Bioidentical hormone therapy gives you a way to protect your physical fitness against the effects of the passage of time. 

#3: Women, it can minimize hot flashes — and more

Before and during menopause, your body slows its creation of estrogen, a key hormone for women. With bioidentical hormone therapy, we can balance your estrogen levels, minimizing hot flashes and other menopausal symptoms like:

Our team at HealthFirst is here to boost estrogen in your body and get rid of those symptoms. 

#4: Men, it can minimize erectile dysfunction — and more

Similarly, testosterone production drops off as you age. For men, this often leads to:

Choosing bioidentical hormone therapy gives you a way to directly combat these changes, protecting your vitality. 

#5: It can deliver these benefits safely

If you’ve shied away from hormone replacement therapy in the past, it’s probably because you heard that some initial studies correlated it with an increase in breast cancer and heart disease. But more comprehensive, accurately segmented studies have shown that bioidentical hormone therapy is safe and effective. In fact, bioidentical hormones are specifically formulated to precisely match the hormones your body naturally creates, minimizing side effects. 

If you have any questions about the safety of bioidentical hormone therapy, our team at HealthFirst is here to answer them. Want to learn more or get started with this hormone therapy? We’d love to talk with you. Call us at HealthFirst or request your appointment online today.
