Women’s Natural Solution for Hormonal Issues … Is It Right for You?

Have you been repeatedly feeling lethargic, tired and overwhelmed, or sensing your quality of life is being compromised by those weird emotional swings lately? Have you been putting on unjustifiable weight recently? Are you waking up in the middle of the night with hot flushes and night sweats? Do you frequently forget where you’ve left your keys or parked your car?

If this is the case, please don’t fret! Your body is trying to give you a wake-up call. All of above, including decreased libido, are just some signs indicating the natural process of aging, but you don’t have to live with these troubling concerns. There’s plenty to do to reclaim that wonderful energetic sense of wellbeing, and feel vibrant again. Indeed, it’s possible to delay much of those unwelcomed physical and mental changes that associate the aging process with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). It is a safe, effective and reliable solution for women keen on reducing the biological effects of aging.

What are bio-identical hormones and are they safe?

Bioidentical Hormones are an alternative to traditional synthetic Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). They have the exact same molecular structure as your body’s natural hormones and are synthesized by the use of natural ingredients derived from natural plants to make oestrogen and progesterone. Being bio-identical to your body, these hormones are a better option in comparison to those synthetically-made ingredients that come with a considerable list of side effects such as weight gain, facial hair growth and insomnia, possibly promoting certain toxic reactions that studies indicate could develop into cancer.

Who needs bio-identical hormone replacement therapy?

Menopause is a time in the woman’s life where her ovaries stop producing oestrogen and progesterone. Osstrogen and progesterone levels fall considerably, and women develop menopausal symptoms that often worsen their quality of life. Menopause usually happens from the mid forties onwards. Stress, certain illnesses and medications, especially chemotherapy, can lead to premature menopause. Symptoms can also be profound much earlier in case of surgical removal of the uterus and ovaries due to a medical indication, thereby creating a state of hormonal imbalance.

Hormonal deficiency in women often look like this:

  • Hot flushes and night sweats
  • Irritability and emotional swings
  • Impaired memory (foggy mind)
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Loss of desire for intimacy
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Tiredness and lack of energy
  • Disturbed sleep and Insomnia
  • Dry and wrinkled skin
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Hair loss
  • Weight gain
  • Muscle and joint pains

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can be used during perimenopause and menopause, and also for younger women who suffer from remarkably difficult premenstrual syndrome (PMS) which describes a wide range of recurrent symptoms that occur from several days to two weeks before the woman’s period.
