One of the keys to women’s wellness
If you’ve read BHRT: New Year, Better You, you know about the changes our bodies go through
as we age. Starting in our mid-30s, our hormone levels decrease and can cause some of the
typical conditions associated with aging:
● Decreased energy
● Weight gain
● Chronic fatigue
● Hair loss
● Mood swings
● Lowered sex drive
So ladies, let’s take a deeper look at how one of the most important hormones for women’s
wellness plays a part in these conditions. Here’s everything you need to know about estrogen!
Between women’s 30s and 50s, the effects of declining hormone levels cause increasing
weight, hot flashes, inability to sleep, and mood changes. We search for options only to be told
that there are none, and eventually we accept these changes as a normal part of our aging. We
hear, “It’s natural as you get older,” or “Everything appears normal!” But a lot of us are left
asking “Then why do I still feel so bad?”
Here’s the truth: vitamins, natural supplements, or diet trends won’t give you the long-lasting
results you’ve looking for. Here’s the solution: bio-identical estrogen hormones.
Bio-identical hormones have the same structure as those manufactured in our bodies to mimic
the effect of our own hormones. Estrogen is produced primarily by the ovaries, secondarily by
adrenal gland activity, and as a by-product of visceral fat (that weight we keep around our
Lack of estrogen results in the following:
- Shrinking of the tissues in the urogenital area
Sagging skin and breasts
- Increase skin wrinkles on face
- Mood Swings
- Decreased libido and pain during sex
Estrogen is so important to all women. When you reintroduce healthy levels of estrogen into
your body with BHRT, there’s a long list of benefits, too long for this short blog, but here’s a few
of the key ones:
- Prevents hot flashes! You know that wonderful warm whoosh that comes over you out of
nowhere, forcing you to change your outfit multiple times a day… not!
- Protects against osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease.
- Improves vaginal health by decreasing dryness and improving blood flow.
