Many women experience issues such as depression, low sex drive, or hot flashes as they age and feel they “just need to deal with it.” The symptoms of hormonal changes may be a natural part of the aging process, but women certainly have the power to age beautifully! The reality is that many of these issues – such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, poor sleep, loss of sex drive, weight gain, and depression – are associated with hormonal changes that can be treated effectively using natural methods.
Our physicians use bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), focusing on providing hormones that are identical to those made naturally by the human body. Unlike standard hormone therapy, which is synthetic and can cause an imbalance, this treatment is formulated with natural ingredients such as wild yams. Restoring optimal hormone levels, which naturally decrease with age, can protect you from osteoporosis, as well as certain cancers that are more prevalent during and after menopause. Undergoing hormone replacement therapy with bio-identical hormones from our Portland anti-aging center not only gives you the ability to extend your life, but also improves the quality of your life.
