As a woman ages and goes through menopause, her body loses much of the natural health benefit supplied by her hormones throughout her child-bearing years. Estrogen levels dramatically decrease, changing body chemistry. The long-term effects of this estrogen loss can have serious late-life health consequences, including loss of bone, connective tissue and muscle. And then there are those aggravating mood swings, vaginal dryness, weight gain, loss of sex drive, and sleeplessness …
Today a woman’s life expectancy averages 30 years beyond the onset of menopause, and without estrogen replacement, those years can feel like a daily uphill struggle to maintain a healthy balance – physically and emotionally. Reported health risks associated with traditional, “old school” Hormone Replacement Therapies, most notably an increased risk of breast cancer or stroke, have led many women to tough it out, when that is simply unnecessary.
Bio-identical hormones are a safe and effective, natural alternative to the animal hormone extracts of days gone by. Bio-identicals are created from plant-based molecules (primarily yam and soy) that are restructured to duplicate the hormones found in a woman’s body. Applied directly to the skin as a gel, cream, spray, or patch, bio-identicals are absorbed directly into the bloodstream, thereby avoiding the clotting and stroke risk associated with oral hormone ingestion.
A doctor-prescribed Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy helps to create a balance in a woman’s body that undeniably leads to a feeling of well-being and mood consistency.
Studies have shown that the use of bio-identical estradiol and progesterone helps to protect women from aging disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease, osteoporosis and heart disease. Women have a lower risk of heart disease than men until they reach menopause. Once estrogen is depleted, however, women catch up to men in their heart disease risk. Estrogen replacement has been proven to decrease the risk of heart disease in women. The number one killer of post-menopausal women is not breast cancer – it is heart disease. A decline in estrogen is the major culprit. Bio-identical hormones decrease your risk of heart disease.
