As your body makes the transition from young adulthood to middle age and eventually into old age, it undergoes many physical, mental, and emotional changes along the way. For some people, these changes make them feel old long before they are ready for it. The hormonal changes in both men and women can be especially challenging.
How Hormone Therapy Makes You Feel Young Again
Since imbalanced hormones directly cause many of the unpleasant changes of aging, bringing them into balance can help to improve your symptoms rapidly. However, this doesn’t always happen with medications and other therapies prescribed by most traditional doctors. The main reason for this is that doctors who practice traditional medicine usually prescribe pharmaceutical drugs to address symptoms as they present themselves, instead of a comprehensive treatment plan that considers the patient as a whole. Some people may show improvement on these drugs, but many others show no changes at all, some actually have their symptoms increase in severity or become complicated by unpleasant side effects of the medication.
Dr. Hermanson believes that Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a more effective means of providing anti-aging and wellness services to his patients for several important reasons. These include:
- The ingredients from these hormones are derived from plants rather than manufactured by scientists. Even though both synthetic and bioidentical hormones are changed into a compound medication by pharmacists, only bioidentical hormones contain a cell structure that is identical to the body’s natural hormones.
- Because of their natural ingredients, most patients tolerate bioidentical hormones much easier than synthetic ones and see faster results. This allows patients the relief they have been searching for with confidence in a safe and natural alternative.
- Unlike traditional medical practitioners, Christopher Hermanson, M.D. determines your exact hormone imbalances with a blood test, saliva test, or both. He also asks detailed questions in order to understand how these imbalances affect your quality of life. This allows him to request a tailor-made compound medication from a local pharmacy. In short, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is focused to address only those hormones that are out of balance and leaves the rest alone.
