Why is BHRT different from other forms of hormone replacement?
Bioidentical hormones have several differences from other hormones. First of all, they can be suited to fit individual needs, and each person will get the correct amount of the hormone he or she is deficient in. Other forms of hormone replacement therapy only offer a one size fits all approach and only offer one dose to everyone despite the person’s deficiencies or excesses. Non bioidentical hormones are usually made from animal waste and are not identical to human hormones. Non bioidentical hormones are manufactured with a chemical structure that is foreign to the human body, and therefore, they can have a risk of significant side effects. This is because the human body will semi-recognize a hormone that should be equal to estrogen, and it may be able to attach to a progesterone receptor in the body because it is only partially recognizable. When this happens, it can cause a big problem for the body’s actual hormones because the receptor sites are taken up with hormones that are only partially compatible with them. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy prevents this from happening, Kansas Bioidentical Doctor, Marilyn Richardson, M.D. can help patients, in the Clay County area of Kansas City, Missouri, customize programs to suit individual needs.
What are the causes of hormonal imbalances?
Hormones can become imbalanced at any point during the lifespan for different reasons. Some common reasons for hormone decline include aging, stress, poor nutrition, lack of sleep, excess body fat, and excessive smoking or alcohol intake. While there are many reasons for hormone decline, the most common reason is aging. As aging occurs the body loses its vitality and can no longer produce a sufficient amount of hormones. Stress can cause the adrenal glands, which produce a small amount of hormones, to convert the materials needed for sex hormone production into more cortisol, which is a hormone that counteracts the effects of stress. Without proper nutrition and sleep, the body cannot make important hormones, and excessive body fat increases estrogen levels, which may suppress the functions of other hormones. Toxins from alcohol, smoking, or the environment may also lead to impaired hormone production. Despite the reason for hormone decline, Kansas Bioidentical Doctor, Marilyn Richardson, M.D. has a bioidentical hormone program to help patients rebalance their hormones.
