The endocrine system is responsible for regulating the balance of hormones in the body. It is a system of all the glands in your body which use hormones to send chemical messages directly to the circulatory system, keeping your body functioning the way it should. As we age, levels of hormones decline, and with this decline, unwanted symptoms can occur. While hormone imbalances are often age-related, they can also relate to health conditions and diseases. Hormones work in tandem with one another, and an imbalance or deficiency can have a detrimental impact on the homeostasis of the endocrine system. Hormone imbalances, in both men and women, can be treated with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, which is also known as BHRT.
Bioidentical hormones mimic the same chemical makeup to that of natural hormones produced by the human body. Bioidentical hormones can treat menopausal symptoms in women, and symptoms of low testosterone in men, without any negative consequences. With BHRT, you can naturally rebalance the body’s hormones and in turn, regulate the endocrine system.
Hormone Therapy for Menopause
Estrogen is the primary sex hormone that promotes the development and regulation of the female reproductive system. Reduced estrogen levels can cause symptoms such as hot flashes, mood changes, and sleep problems. These symptoms are common in those experiencing menopause. Hormone therapy in the form of estrogen or estrogen-progestin can help normalize low hormone levels. Regulation improves the symptoms of menopause and prevents conditions related to low-estrogen, like osteoporosis.
Hormone Therapy for Low Testosterone
BHRT is also ideal for men with a testosterone deficiency. Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone and anabolic steroid necessary for the development of male reproductive tissues and characteristics. Symptoms of low testosterone include reduced libido, hair loss, and loss of muscles mass. Although low T can affect men of any age range, it is most common in aging or obese men and men who take steroids or opioids. Restoring levels of testosterone with BHRT can help rebalance the endocrine system as well as help with fatigue, muscle building, and sexual function.
The Impact of BHRT on the Endocrine System
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is available in many forms, including creams, tablets, patches and injections, and in the form of pellets. At SDBody we offer all types of treatments. However, we highly recommend the use of pellet therapy. Our pellet therapy consists of the implantation of a capsule beneath the skin which administers small doses of bioidentical hormones that regulate the natural hormones of the human body. Balanced hormones control metabolism, growth, and sexual development and function which are all part of a healthy endocrine system.
At SDBody, we understand the impact a hormone imbalance can have on the sensitive homeostasis of the endocrine system. For this reason, we offer a range of highly personalized bioidentical hormone therapy treatments for both men and women.
