Get Hormone Healthy!
Hormone therapy is still considered the most effective treatment for menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, insomnia, night sweats, and
vaginal dryness. But FDA-approved estrogen-progestin hormone drugs have been shown to increase the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease. There has also been resistance by patients opposed to taking drugs for these symptoms because it treats menopause is a disease rather than a normal life passage. The compromise is “bioidentical” hormone therapy, a natural way to treat symptoms of hormonal imbalances.
There is a lot of evidence that supports the claim that bioidentical hormone therapy is safer and more effective than synthetic hormone replacement. Biodentical hormones are identical in molecular structure to the hormones women make in their bodies and can’t be distinguished from the ones your ovaries produce.
Based on individual hormone levels, a specialized compound can be individually tailored for a bioidentical hormone regimen specifically designed for each patient. Dr. Bradshaw can help you determine the best options for you to get hormone healthy.
