Millions of women are suffering from hormonal imbalances or deficiencies. These may manifest as premenstrual symptoms (PMS), peri-menopause or menopausal symptoms, thyroid problems, adrenal issues, weight gain or insomnia, to mention just a few key indicators. In many cases, bioidentical hormone therapy by EvolveWell’s medical professionals in Calgary may provide a solution.

In women, the symptoms of hormonal imbalance often first appear as PMS and then symptoms worsen into perimenopause and menopause when hormones levels start to decline. Initially, insomnia, mood changes, hot flashes, night sweats and weight gain are common complaints. These symptoms of perimenopause and menopause can also be connected to poor nutrition, stress levels, lack of exercise and environmental toxins that your body is exposed to on a daily basis. Sex hormones (estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone) are interrelated to your adrenal hormones as well as your thyroid.

Hormonal imbalances and deficiencies are at the root of many chronic health problems and can increase your risk of serious diseases. Fortunately, hormone losses and imbalances are correctable. Through the use of bioidentical hormones, women can not only be relieved of many symptoms and improve their quality of life, they can also hopefully protect themselves from other diseases such as osteoporosis. Through supervised treatment, hormone replacement therapy can make women feel healthier and younger than they have in years.

FAQs

What are “bioidentical” hormones?

These hormones are biologically identical to the hormones naturally produced in the body, allowing them to function in the same way as the body’s own hormones. Bioidentical hormones are mostly derived from plants, but are available only as a prescription.

What hormones need to be replaced?

Hormone therapy replaces estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and DHEA, to name a few. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is personalized to every individual’s needs.

When should I begin bioidentical hormone therapy?

Best results are often achieved with peri-menopausal women (usually between 35 to 55). But as with all health-related initiatives, individual considerations, symptoms and risk factors can influence the effectiveness of the treatment. For better protection for your heart, brain and bones, an early start is the best strategy. Re-balancing of hormones may be needed at any age for an adult female.

Is there increased risk of breast cancer?

There is no evidence to suggest that bioidentical hormones increase the risk of breast cancer in use for five years.

Can my family physician prescribe bioidentical hormones for me?

At the time of publication, bioidentical hormone therapy is not on the curriculum of any Canadian medical school. Although more doctors are looking into this emerging therapy, there are very few who are fully qualified. For the most effective results, safe treatment and adequate monitoring, we recommend you seek out a team of bioidentical hormone therapy specialists — which just happens to be who’s waiting for you at EvolveWell, bioidentical hormone therapy in Calgary.

What are the benefits of Bioidentical hormone therapy?

When hormones are balanced, most menopausal symptoms, like poor sleep, depression, and hot flashes will be relieved. Additionally your heart health, brain health and bone health will benefit from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. There are also a lot of emerging studies about the prevention of certain cancers with bioidentical hormone therapy.

In what form will my treatment be prescribed?

The most common forms of bioidentical hormone treatment are patches, creams, gels, pills or injections. Your medical professional will work closely with you to discover which combination of treatment options is right for you.
