You may be surprised to learn that your skin is one of the place you experience signs of hormonal imbalances. For example, you may see and feel skin changes such as:
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapies, also known as BHRT, include a combination of estrogen and progesterone to help regulate hormone levels. While different types of hormone therapy are available, BHRTs focus on the bioidentical, which means at the molecular level, these therapies are identical to natural hormones. The goal with using a BHRT is to help restore your natural hormone levels and reduce the signs and symptoms of hormone fluctuations. If you are experiencing symptoms of menopause such as a decrease in period regularity or dramatic mood swings, our nurse practitioner will meet with you at our Franklin Tennessee office to discuss the benefits of beginning BHRT. Our Body Works staff is here to assist you throughout the process and will answer all your questions regarding the various hormone therapy options.
Estrogen therapy is useful when you are experiencing low levels of estrogen such as during menopause. Low estrogen levels cause many of the above symptoms and may also lead to an increased risk for heart disease, heart attacks, strokes, and osteoporosis. Our BHRT therapy uses estrogen to help restore this hormone level to protect your heart. You will also notice changes in your skin, hair, sleep, mood, concentrate and muscle tissue. Our estrogen treatment therapy is designed to fit your individual needs and help return your quality of life to a level you desire. For example, if you are experiencing an increased amount of joint pain, estrogen therapy may be helpful in reducing your discomfort.
Progesterone treatment therapies work together with estrogen treatment to improve the way you look and feel. In addition, restoring progesterone levels offers protection against breast cancer, depression, heart disease and osteoporosis. Our BHRT therapy includes progesterone to assist in lowering cholesterol levels, improve sleep and restore your body to healthy weight levels.
