Choose Bioidentical Hormones in Everett for Menopausal Symptoms

August 24, 2018  

Some women sail through menopause without any uncomfortable symptoms or only negligible issues. Unfortunately, many middle-aged women have moderate to severe problems with menopause due to insufficient hormone production that make everyday life challenging and unpleasant. One welcome option that has demonstrated tremendous success for years for relief of hot flashes, mood swings, weight gain, low sex drive and other problems relating to menopause is therapy using bioidentical hormones in Everett.

Bioidentical hormones are made from all-natural ingredients and are equal to and perform the same functions as hormones produced by the human body. Prescription hormones like Provera, Prempro and Premarin are also natural but not bioidentical and exhibit unwelcome side effects that can be harmful to the body.

Hormone replacement therapy with bioidentical hormones effectively changes the hormones into receptor molecules in the body and allows the cells to do their jobs in the most efficient way possible. The molecules that most often need replacing are:

  • Progesterone
  • Testosterone
  • Estrone (E1)
  • Estradiol (E2)
  • Estriol (E3)
  • DHEA

These naturally-occurring bioidentical hormones are prescribed by a physician and are available in pills, creams and transdermals, depending on which hormones are being duplicated and what symptoms you wish to alleviate. Speak with your doctor about your choices to deal with your menopausal symptoms. Bioidentical hormones have been prescribed for decades, are easily obtained, can be formulated for individual needs, are safe and effective and are simple to use.
