For some women, feeling older than their age is just a part of life they have learned to accept and contribute to the aging process.  Premature aging in women may occur indirectly as a result of having their ovaries removed during a hysterectomy.  A study shows that 1 in 3 gynecologists do this to reduce a woman’s risk for breast and ovarian cancer.  Yet, removal of the ovaries will cause a hormonal imbalance that can lead a decrease in quality of life.
 
What Can Bioidentical HRT Do For You?
 
A deficiency in hormone levels puts you at a higher risk for other medical issues which are known to deplete your quality of life.  With bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), women enjoy healthy estradiol levels and regain that youthful feeling as hormone levels are kept in balance.  Women also benefit from using bioidentical hormones as they experience no increase in arteriosclerosis, loss of bone density, and other menopausal symptoms.
 
As a matter of fact, menopausal symptoms disappear and women with a family history of Alzheimer’s notice less amyloid deposits in the brain when using the estradiol patch.  Meet with Dr. Mac or Kristi to have your hormone levels measured and start an anti-aging plan in Indianapolis that restores a youthful feeling!
 
What Happens Without Bioidentical HRT?
 
According to one study, women who decide not to use bioidentical hormones or stop using them tend to experience a return of menopausal symptoms.  These symptoms include hot flashes, weight gain, difficulty sleeping, and a decrease in bone density.  All of these add to that feeling of aging where your daily life seems more difficult than you expect.  With bioidentical HRT, hormones are restored to adequate levels which promote a superior quality of life that helps prevent premature aging.
