I have been a patient of Dr. Bodok for over 6 years. I came to see her because I had the “menopausal blues”…….which means, hot flashes, night sweats, waking nightly at 3AM, memory issues and vaginal dryness. After a few blood tests, Dr. Bodok with her expertise, has balanced my hormones and I am now a very happy woman! If there are any other women out there with similar problems, I urge you to go visit Dr. Bodok. You will not be disappointed.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy uses hormones that are identical to the ones produced in the human body to replace deficient hormones. Men and women can now replace the hormones that decline with aging, stress, or poor lifestyle habits with hormones that are identical to the ones produced in the human body.
Both men and women can reap the benefits of Bioidentical Hormones without the vicious side effects.
Benefits of Bioidentical Hormones
Weight Loss – Muscle influences the burning of calories. When muscle is abundant, fat storage’s are tapped into in order to sustain energy. If estrogen is low for either a man or woman, the body attempts to conserve estrogen by storing extra fat. This is because fat contains estrogen, and regular amounts of estrogen can decrease fat storage.
Reduced Hot Flashes and Night Sweats – The hypothalamus is the body’s internal thermometer. Hormonal deficiencies can cause signals going to the hypothalamus to get crossed, and this can result in hot flashes and night sweats.
More Energy – Fluctuations of hormones can cause blood sugar to not be processed properly, and this can cause feelings of fatigue. When hormones are balanced, the body can effectively produce energy to restore and increase vitality.
Improved Sexual Function – If hormones pertaining to reproduction are decreased, then desire for sexual activity is also decreased. When hormones are restored to normal levels, libido is boosted. In women, after the body decreases hormone production and closes down reproduction, it assumes there will be no further reason for sexual activity. This can cause vaginal dryness, and by supplementing the deficient hormones, vaginal dryness can be relieved. In men, erectile dysfunction may improve because testosterone directly affects reproductive functions, and sexual functions may be decreased with a testosterone deficien
Leaner Appearance – A testosterone deficiency can occur in both men and women. Because testosterone directly affects the building of muscle, muscle can atrophy if it is insufficient. During testosterone decline, men can lose between 12 or 15 pounds of lean muscle mass, and if testosterone is restored to healthy levels, muscle may regenerate with exercise.
Healthier Moods – Hormone fluctuations can cause mood swings due to hormonal interference with blood sugar and brain chemistry. Women going through menopause and men experiencing andropause may notice several fluctuations in moods. Balanced hormones can remedy feelings of anger, anxiety, and depression.
These are many more benefits that can be obtained with Bioidentical Hormone Therapy that can help a person reclaim health, happiness, and vitality.
