Reliable HRT Treatment In Columbus

A depletion of hormones in the body is a direct result of menopause and a hysterectomy.  Hot flashes, night sweats, problems sleeping, mood swings, weight gain and secondary diseases such as thyroid disease, high blood pressure and Type 2 Diabetes. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is the use of hormones and can help.

Harvard Health published a report on Bioidentical Hormones, which discussed how BHRT is referred to as natural hormone therapy because bioidentical hormones act in the body just like the hormones produced by the ovaries.

Menopause is a naturally occurring process in a woman’s body when her periods (menstruation) eventually stop.  The same process occurs when a hysterectomy occurs and the body goes through changes caused by a gradual decrease, and eventual failure, or removal of the ovaries’ and its ability to produce estrogen. In most women, Menopause occurs between the ages of 45 – 55. The most common symptom of menopause, occurring in up to 75% of women, is hot flashes. Hot flashes are marked by a sudden feeling of heat that seems to come from inside and covers the entire body and face.
