Bioidentical Hormones Will Alleviate Many Issues Related to Aging. Dr. ChinQuee of Helped Both Men and Women in New York City.
Bioidentical hormones are identical in molecular structure to the hormones we make in our bodies. They are created from a plant chemical extracted from yams and soy, then micronized (finely ground) for better absorption in the body. What is a hormone? A hormone is a chemical, released by a cell or gland, which sends action messages affecting other parts of the organism. Even very small amounts can alter a cell’s metabolism. What are some effects of hormone depletion or imbalance?
- Mood swings
- Hunger cravings
- Regulation of Metabolism
- Activation or inhibition of the immune system
- Preparing body for new phase of life cycle (puberty, parenting, menopause)
- Control of reproductive cycle
- Stimulation or inhibition of growth
WOMEN and hormonal changes Many women experience an array of symptoms as their hormones change months or even years before menopause. This time period is called perimenopause and is the extended transition leading up to menopause. Symptoms vary in intensity person to person, but common patient complaints include hot flashes and night sweats, vaginal dryness, sleep disturbances, erratic periods, and heavy bleeding.
MEN and hormonal changes Men also experience age-related hormonal changes, though it tends to happen much more gradually. The effects include changes in sexual function, loss of muscle mass, energy levels, mood changes. Many doctors refer to this decrease in testosterone levels in men as “andropause.”
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Dr. ChinQuee offers her patients an integrative approach to suffering through severe symptoms of hormonal changes and regular imbalances. Hormone levels decline as we age. Bioidentical hormonal replacement therapy replenishes the hormones that your body needs to function. Eating right and exercising are important aspects of hormone replacement therapy. If your hormones are out of balance, your body will not respond optimally to improved nutrition and exercise.
