Living the life in San Diego always seemed like a great way to head into retirement. Unfortunately, it became a situation where aging gracefully was not really the picture of perfection you always thought it should be. After reaching your 50’s, you started noticing that you just did not have the same get-up-and-go attitude that you had in your younger years. One reason for this may be because as women age they tend to experience a reduction in hormone levels: estradiol being the form of estrogen that tends to drop off at menopause. This change in hormones typically leads to a lower quality of life, which is simply unacceptable. Hearing about bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, you began to wonder what sort of benefits might come from this type of treatment. The following are a few benefits that will make this treatment option seem rather appealing to people in this situation.
Since women with low estrogen tend to experience certain unwanted symptoms in their older years, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is one way to mitigate such issues. In the case of sexual health, many women experience vaginal dryness after menopause sets in and takes hold.
Replacing the depleted hormone levels can help to reduce or eliminate the harsh effects of this condition. As a result of the lowering of hormones during peri-menopause, many women find that they no longer have much interest in sex. By utilizing bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, women can return to feeling the sexual desires they did before perimenopause became a reality.
When a woman has a major reduction in hormone levels, it can also affect the body during sleep. One way this manifests itself is through hot flashes. Since hot flashes can make it difficult for women to get adequate sleep, being an unwelcome interruption, people who suffer with this problem often seek for ways to manage their hot flashes. With bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, the hormone levels can be restored to something more normal that helps to reduce the frequency of hot flashes after menopause. This means that women will be able to return to a more normal sleep routine.
Not Just for Women
While it is common for women to seek for a way to balance reduced hormones as they get older, it is hard to ignore that men start to experience similar hormone depletion problems as they age as well. With men, the problem begins in the mid 30’s as their body starts to slow down its production of testosterone. By the time they are in their 70’s, they have lost nearly 90 percent of their testosterone. This will typically take quite a toll on a man’s energy levels and affect their sexual performance and drive as well. Like women, men will also find it more difficult to lose weight as they age and their hormone levels drop. Choosing bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can significantly return a man to the way he felt when he was much younger. Possessing more energy and stamina from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, older men and women can enjoy their golden years.
