Spa V Is Now Offering Hormone Replacement Therapy
As women, we know that after age 40 our hormones begin to shift as we approach menopause. While this process is a natural part of aging, the volatile swings in estrogen and progesterone during this time can cause intense symptoms. Many women learn to dread this change. They’ve heard horror stories from older women about hot flashes, mood swings, and other unwanted symptoms. But now, with modern hormone replacement therapy, you don’t have to just let nature take its course. Spa V is pleased to offer this life-changing treatment option for women struggling with hormonal issues as a result of menopause.
What Is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Usually beginning in the mid-40s, the ovaries start to produce less estrogen. As time goes on, women start to ovulate (releasing an egg) more infrequently, which results in less progesterone. By the time menopause is complete, both estrogen and progesterone are in short supply. We now know that these hormones play an important role in nearly all of our bodily functions – not just reproduction. As a result, unwanted and sometimes debilitating symptoms start to arise. In order to balance hormone levels as the body stops producing estrogen and progesterone, we utilize bio-identical hormones. These are identical in structure to the ones made by the body, so they are readily accepted as replacements.
What Are The Benefits?
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, offers numerous benefits to women struggling with the transition of menopause. Plus, treatment is tailored to your individual needs with thorough testing. Even for patients who only have mild symptoms, it can help prevent issues down the line:
- Relief from hot flashes, mood swings, vaginal dryness, and night sweats
- Can improve bone density which decreases the risk of osteoporosis
- Reduces the risk of heart disease, as it improves cholesterol levels
- Improves sleep quality, which impacts not only daily life but long term health
- Can decrease the risk of cognitive diseases like Alzheimer’s
- Improve libido
