Could I Benefit From Bio-Identical Hormones?

Find out whether hormone replacement therapy may be right for you.

Hormones play a vital role in maintaining good health, and not just our reproductive health. Hormones are responsible for regulating everything from blood pressure and sex drive to hunger, metabolism, and immune system. Therefore, when hormone levels start to fluctuate this can lead to a host of unpleasant symptoms for both men and women. This is where our St. Louis, MO, holistic doctor Dr. Tipu Sultan can help.

What are bioidentical hormones?

As you may be able to guess, bioidentical hormones contain hormones that have an identical chemical structure to natural hormones already found in the body. This means that our bodies are more likely to recognize these bioidentical hormones as natural hormones, which means fewer side effects and more benefits over traditional hormone replacement therapy.

Who can benefit from bioidentical hormones?

When we think about hormone replacement therapy, we often think about women that are going through menopause. While many menopausal women here in St. Louis, MO, can benefit from turning to holistic medicine to get bioidentical hormone therapy, many men and women of various ages may also benefit. You may want to consider bioidentical hormones if,

  • You’re dealing with severe menopausal symptoms including hot flashes and night sweats, weight gain, and brain fog
  • You have low testosterone (both men and women)
  • You’ve been diagnosed with an adrenal or thyroid disorder
  • You are insulin resistant
  • You have osteoporosis

Men with low testosterone levels may experience some of these symptoms,

  • Loss of sex drive
  • Fatigue/low energy
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Weight gain
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Hair loss
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Depression
  • Irritability and mood swings

If you are dealing with low testosterone levels, then our holistic doctor may recommend bioidentical hormones to help boost hormone levels. This is a common problem for men as they get older, as their bodies are no longer producing the same amount of testosterone.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy has the ability to improve,

  • Sexual desire and intimacy
  • Energy levels
  • Weight loss
  • Menopausal symptoms
  • Sleep problems
  • Memory and concentration
  • Mood
