Who is a good candidate for BHRT & how do you know you have a hormone imbalance?
When your body has the right balance of hormones you feel excellent! You not only feel excellent, but you look great, you feel sexual, you have great energy, have confidence and you feel put together! Now what happens when you combine, stress that pushes your buttons, silent, dangerous and very potent chemical hormones in your food, water and air and you are getting older which means you are accumulating over the years those button pushing stresses and dangerous chemicals? Your wonderful hormone balance starts to be not so wonderful. You notice your not sleeping as well as you used to and your energy level is down forcing you to drink extra caffeine though-out the day. Your moods are less patient and your memory is starting to scare you. Your skin doesn’t glow like it used to. Your breasts don’t have a good full feeling. You notice a little acne and few facial hairs that shouldn’t be there. The pounds are creeping up and naturally, you aren’t looking forward to sex like you used to. Top it all off with PMS and an irregular period accompanied by breast tenderness from about mid-cycle, relieved only with a heavy and maybe painful menstrual flow. Could hormones do all of that? YES and a whole lot more!!!
What will BHRT do to help hormone imbalance?
You’ll be happy to know that you can get back to the balance of Hormone Heaven safely. All you need to do is to accurately test your hormones and then take the exact hormones that you are missing, not some weird chemical hormones that your body wouldn’t make on its own and would be quite upset if you swallowed them. For sure diet, exercise and stress management are important to the process. Bio-Identical Hormones have been used world wide by thousands of responsible, licensed doctors for the last 45 years. These doctors have refused to prescribe strange to the body chemicals sold as “hormones” that we have all know people stricken by them and have heard what the research has said about them and the diseases that they cause.
Is blood or saliva testing better for hormone imbalances?
Many women and men wonder if saliva or blood testing to check your hormones is best. Blood testing is a very accurate way to test all kinds of things like blood sugar and liver function but when it comes to testing hormones, there is a technical problem. Understanding what the blood hormone test tells us will make the difference between a successful treatment, and an unsuccessful treatment. Blood hormone testing combines the active and inactive form of the hormone in the one number given as the test result. We need to know what the level fo the active hormone by itself is, to understand the true situation. Saliva testing is the best way to get the pure amount of active hormone measured. It is also important to know the level of hormones are in the tissues. These are 2 great reasons why treating your hormone imbalance is best when saliva testing is used.
