Digging Deeper: What Are Bioidentical Hormones?
The hormones in our body serve as chemical messengers between one cell to another. Because of these hormones, our body is able to prepare itself for digestion once it signals for our appetite. These also help us stay in a good mood or feel very functional. When these hormones get out of balance, we can feel the major impact on our overall well-being.
The powerful element of hormones in our body is one of the treatments we undertake as we also provide Stem Cell Therapy in Las Vegas, NV. With our procedures, we help optimize a person’s hormone production, so that the effects of hormonal imbalance can be abated. We achieve this with the technology we call bioidentical hormones.
- Defining bioidentical hormones as replacement therapy
Technically called BHRT (bioidentical hormone replacement therapy), this procedure is utilized by both men and women when they experience hormonal imbalance. These imbalances can appear on a woman’s menopausal season, or in a man’s inherited hormonal imbalance, among many other causes.
Bioidentical hormones are created by professionals from plant estrogens, which contain similar or identical chemical functionality with our own hormones. These hormones usually are estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.
- How are bioidentical hormones created?
These bioidentical hormones are manufactured by pharmaceutical companies or pharmacies with compounding services, in compliance with a doctor’s prescription. As for the Food and Drug Administration, they also have pre-approved bioidentical hormones that are manufactured by leading pharmaceuticals, such as the bioidentical estriol.
As for the bioidentical hormones that we distribute at Regenerative Cell Institute, we get our pellet-form hormones from BioTE, where they are manufactured and compounded by their USA-based pharmacies, which are licensed by the FDA. These pellets undergo rigorous checking to ensure that the patient is getting the optimum healing experience that they deserve.
- How beneficial is BHRT?
BHRT is usually provided as treatment options for women who are going through their menopausal years when their hormones are erratically imbalanced. During these times, the woman goes through hot flashes and other physical manifestations, which can be managed when their hormones are increased.
Without BHRT, a person with hormonal imbalance can also experience fluctuating moods, unnecessary weight gain, risks of memory loss, sleeping difficulties, and loss of libido. Aside from these conditions addressed by BHRT, the patient can also reduce their risk of diabetes, tooth loss, and even with cataracts.
Before proceeding with the bioidentical hormone replacement therapy or any other Regenerative medicine in Nevada, ensure that the patient has their doctor’s approval. Every person’s health needs are unique. Therefore, they also need interventions that are unique to their conditions, and which can be greatly guided by their primary physician.
