What are the Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy?

At Affirm Health Center we offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for our patients. Some patients come to us suffering from exhaustion, stress, foggy thinking, weight gain, sleep disturbances, and other symptoms. They can be at a loss because these symptoms have either been misdiagnosed or they’ve chosen to simply live with them.

But getting your hormones back in balance can make a big difference. Here are some of the benefits of our hormone replacement therapy at Affirm Health Center.

Physical benefits

Hormone replacement therapy can help relieve the symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Many people incorrectly assume they don’t feel as good as they once did simply because they are older. But fatigue, muscle loss, and weight gain are a few of the telltale signs of hormonal imbalance.

Mental benefits

Low levels of testosterone in men and estrogen in women can lead to lower mental capacity, depression, and brain fog. Again, many people incorrectly assume this is their brain getting older. Not necessarily. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can keep your brain sharp.

Emotional benefits

Hormonal imbalance can be what’s behind your mood changes, irritability, depression, anxiety, and stress. For women, estrogen is closely linked to emotional well-being. It has been clinically linked to premenstrual syndrome, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, and postpartum depression. The common link between all of those conditions? Fluctuating hormone levels. For men with low testosterone, mood changes, depression, and inability to handle stress are all common symptoms.

For women

Various clinical studies have shown that hormone replacement therapy can help correct hormone imbalance in women. This helps with related problems such as depression, anxiety, low sex drive, osteoporosis, heart disease, and other conditions.

For men

Studies have linked various male health issues with low testosterone. Hormone replacement therapy can help men overcome fatigue, insomnia, weight gain, brain fog, decreased sexual performance, depression, anxiety, and more.
