The beauty of aging, and the not-so-pretty part.

As a woman, growing older can be a beautiful thing; life experience, self-awareness and more confidence are hopefully a part of that experience. Another part of that experience is menopause, which can cause a great deal of anxiety and change that many women find difficult. It’s a fairly safe bet that when women seek relief from those symptoms, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a part of that discussion.

Is HRT for me?

Clearly the symptoms of menopause last a long time; like, an average of about ten years of your life. So, what can you expect during this time? Changing levels of hormones can cause severe discomfort as well as some health risks. Here are a few symptoms you may experience relative to menopause:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Thinning hair
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Weight gain
  • Osteoporosis or bone thinning
  • Urinary issues
  • Insomnia
  • Hot flashes
  • Lower fertility
  • Irregular periods
  • Decrease in concentration and memory

Are there differences in therapies?

At REVIVE we offer Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). BHRT has become popular because it offers a natural solution to hormone issues. Not only is BHRT effective in treating the symptoms of menopause, it is also used to treat insulin resistance, adrenal and thyroid disorders and fibromyalgia.

Can all of this be fixed?

Yes! Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a topic you may have already heard of, but what is it exactly? With HRT, a man is given testosterone to help restore the testosterone that is lost with age.

Is HRT for me?

Antibiotics are heavily prescribed to treat a variety of illnesses, but antibiotics can kill not only bad flora, it can also kill the good flora in your body. Killing of the good flora in your body will greatly weaken your immune system. Ozone therapy offers an alternative to the toxic side-effects sometimes caused by anti-biotics. It can also help protect your body from contracting the illness in the first place.

What is BHRT?

Bioidentical hormones are man-made hormones derived from plant estrogens. These estrogens are chemically-identical to the hormones that your body already produces. Hormones such as estrogen, progesterone and testosterone are the most commonly replicated bioidentical hormones. BHRT allows hormones to be combined or altered to meet your individual needs. Bioidentical hormones are often thought to be safer and more effective than synthetic hormones. BHRT can be used in the form of:
• Pills
• Patches
• Creams
• Gels
• Injections

I’ve decided I want to explore the benefits of BHRT, now what?

At REVIVE, to be truly bioidentical, we calculate dosing based on your unique hormone levels. We do this through blood testing. In the beginning of your therapy, you will be tested about every three to four months to be ensure proper balance. Once we are sure you are feeling well and your tests show proper balance, your visits will decrease, usually to as little as once a year!

How long will it take unit I feel the positive effects of BHRT?

You can see signs of improvement as early as the first three or four of therapy. It will take about eight weeks to feel the full effect. Our plan is to achieve your hormonal balance with the lowest possible dose of each hormone.
