Bioidentical hormones are hormones that are created, typically from plants, that have the identical chemical structure to the hormones humans make naturally. At Spark Hormone Therapy, we use only bioidentical hormones to help replace the hormones lost due to natural aging and rapid hormonal decline we’ve seen since the 1960s. If you have a hormonal imbalance you may be experiencing health issues that can decrease your quality of life.
Hormones play a vital role in your body and help aid metabolism, temperature regulation, sexual function, healthy aging, mood and reproduction to name a few.
Hormone imbalances can lead to uncomfortable side effects, chronic illness, and decrease quality of life.
You could benefit from bioidentical hormones if you have a thyroid disorder, lack estrogen or testosterone. Typically, around age 40 men and women start to notice hormonal changes, although some may experience symptoms sooner. Ideally, it’s best to have an evaluation when you start to notice symptoms to prevent disease and discomfort.
Both men and women produce hormones called Testosterone, Estrogen, and Progesterone.
Hormone levels may fluctuate greatly during younger years, leading to issues with your periods, moods, acne and weight. For women, during peri-menopause (the years surrounding menopause) and post-menopause (no periods for 1 year), you may experience symptoms caused by the drop in testosterone, estrogen and progesterone. For men you may notice similar symptoms, this time is called andropause. During this time you may experience:
Taking bioidentical hormones can address many of these symptoms and return the Spark for life you you have lost due to “natural aging” and hormone imbalance.
Bioidentical hormones can provide relief for nearly all of the symptoms discussed. At Spark Hormone Therapy we create a plan designed to work for YOU, no cookie-cutter medicine. We closely monitor and track your blood work and symptoms to ensure quality care and happy patients. Although responses may vary, many feel they have figured out how to rewind the hands of time and put the Spark back in their lives!
