Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

Charleston Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Doctor, Susan Kady Wilson, M.D. of Charleston Healthspan Institute is in the business of offering hope. In her many years of providing Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy in the South Carolina area, men and women have come to her in complete despair. Nothing they have tried has helped to alleviate their symptoms of fatigue, irritability, weight gain, low sex drive, and dozens of other issues related to changing hormone levels. This can and often does lead to feelings of hopelessness and depression.

By the time people come to Dr. Wilson of Charleston Healthspan Institute, they are ready to try something new. They are frustrated with general practice doctors treating their symptoms and not solving the root problems. Even worse are the primary care physicians, friends, and family members who say that it’s all a normal part of aging and all anyone can do is just deal with it. If all of this sounds familiar to you, the first thing to realize is that you don’t just have to put up with these symptoms taking over your life. Dr. Wilson of Charleston Healthspan Institute has helped many people permanently feel better through Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy and she can do the same for you.

How Hormones Get Unbalanced

One of the persistent myths that patients of Dr. Wilson of Charleston Healthspan Institute believe is that only women experience hormonal changes as they age. While all women go through menopause, a large percentage of men also deal with symptoms brought on by the hormonal changes that come with aging. That is because a man’s naturally begins producing less testosterone as he gets older. The decrease starts as early as age 30, with the most noticeable symptoms starting in the mid-40s to early 50s. Coincidentally, this is the same age range that women are typically bothered the most by symptoms of menopause.

While normal aging is the most common reason for hormonal imbalance, it is not the only one. Stress, an unhealthy diet, certain illnesses, inadequate sleep, and poor lifestyle choices are also contributing factors. If you suspect that unbalanced hormones are causing your symptoms, it is important to schedule an evaluation with Dr. Wilson of Charleston Healthspan Institute as soon as possible. The reason for the imbalance is not as important as determining the proper way to treat it.

Common Indications of Hormonal Imbalance

The first time patients visit Dr. Wilson of Charleston Healthspan Institute, the most frequent thing they complain about is sluggishness. Getting through a normal day at work is enough of a struggle, never mind household chores, intimacy with their partner, or anything else that requires energy. Both genders struggle to lose stubborn body fat and may experience problems with mood swings, sleep disturbances and sexual dysfunction. Both men and women sum up their problems with hormonal imbalance well when they say that they just don’t feel like themselves.

How Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Can Help You Get Back to You

When women stop producing estrogen and men slow down their production of testosterone, it seems obvious that restoring the balance they once had can make them feel better. However, most mainstream doctors fail to see the connection. They are trained to diagnose and treat disease. Since hormone imbalance is not an illness, they are at a loss for what to do. Dr. Wilson of Charleston Healthspan Institute, on the other hand, introduces hormones into your body that are identical in cell structure and purpose to what it previously manufactured on its own. Within one month of starting treatment, you may notice improvement in some, if not ALL, of these areas:

Balanced moods: You no longer experience feelings of hostility, anxiety, or depression that you can’t explain. Your emotions are on a much more even keel.

Increased sex drive: Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy increases the libido of both genders to what it was before they started suffering the effects of hormone loss.

More regular sleep patterns: Hormone imbalance affects the hypothalamus, the area of the brain that regulates sleep. Restoring that balance helps decrease insomnia and gets you back to a more predictable pattern of sleep.

Fat loss and improved muscle mass:  Low levels of estrogen makes it hard to lose body fat while low testosterone levels have a negative effect on muscle tone. Replacing these hormones helps to eliminate both problems.

For women, Bioidentical Hormone Therapy can help increase libido, energy and strength while decreasing weight, depression and the chance of osteoporosis, heart disease, breast cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.

For men, Bioidentical Hormone Therapy can help increase libido as well as a sense of Well-being; a natural and effective treatment option for low testosterone and other age-related symptoms. Studies have sited a 1-4% decline in average total testosterone production, every year over the last 20 years for 50-year-old males. Over 50% of 55-year-old men will experience andropause, or clinically-low levels of testosterone. Bioidentical Hormone (Testosterone) Replacement Therapy can aide in this condition.

It’s true, hormone imbalances can be the root cause of many chronic health conditions, for both men and women. Millions of people around the world suffer from the symptoms associated with hormone imbalance, but the suffering stops here, with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Stop suffering today!
