Finding bioidentical hormone replacement therapy doctors in and around the Portland, OR area

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Doctors In Portland OR

Hormone replacement therapy is nothing new, especially to doctors in the Portland, OR area. Dr. Adam Maddox is a naturopathic aesthetic medicine specialist who has heard about the negative association with hormone replacement therapy that has occurred in the past. A study done in 2002 shed light on the disadvantages of hormone replacement therapy. This study, called the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI), was stopped as soon as researchers realized that the post-menopausal women who were taking hormone replacement therapy were experiencing an increase in strokes, heart attacks, and even breast cancer diagnoses. When this occurred, women started to look for other methods of balancing their hormones that would not put them at risk for a wide range of medical concerns.

Doctors began to research further into bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, also referred to as BHRT. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy works differently from traditional methods. Instead of using synthetic hormones, the hormones used in BHRT are actually biochemically the same as those produced by women’s ovaries. These hormones include progesterone, testosterone, and estradiol. They can be administered in many different forms including creams and pills.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help patients in the Portland, OR area balance their hormone levels for a better quality of life. Imbalances in the hormones can put patients at risk for a wide range of problems including reduced sex drive, fatigue, depression, and anxiety, among others. By bringing all the hormone levels in balance, patients can feel better and look better while benefitting their entire body. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy achieves better bodies and emotions by keeping all the hormone levels in check.
