Bio Identical Hormone Replacement
Hormones are an important part of our body. They are secreted by endocrine glands and they ensure the smooth functioning of our vital processes. Sometimes, there can be an imbalance of hormones, either a shortage or an increase. This can lead to disease. Fortunately, a new treatment called Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement has been developed. In this treatment, chemicals that are similar to the hormones are injected into the body’s system.
The chemicals are carefully selected to be identical to the hormones and to be compatible with the patient’s body. The treatment is also known as hormone replacement therapy and has been successfully used on many patients.
Bio Identical Hormones
Bio Identical Hormones are available for several hormones in the body such as estrogen, testosterone and insulin. In each case, the bio identical hormone behaves exactly like the natural hormone and has the same effects upon the body.
The treatment is gradually carried out. The body is steadily injected with increasing amounts of the bio identical hormones. After some time, the body starts accepting the bio identical hormones and from that point onwards, they can be used regularly. The treatment has already helped several people suffering from diseases like diabetes and infertility. It has also helped those with skin diseases and hair loss.
Dr. Marcia Byrd is an expert in this treatment. She has been providing bio identical hormone treatment for many years in her city of Atlanta. She has successfully treated many patients. Along with this she is also well experienced in liposuction and fat transfer.
The Advantages of the treatment
Hormone imbalance can gradually but steadily worsen the quality of life. Over time, the patient can become more sedated and weak. The imbalance starts affecting other parts of the body as well, including the vital organs. The end result is usually organ failure followed by death. For this reason, bio identical hormones are crucial to anyone suffering from hormone imbalance.
When the symptoms are identified, the treatment should be started as soon as possible. The treatment can last for a few years. Once the treatment is complete, the symptoms go away and the patient can live a healthy life. But in certain rare cases, the patient might have to continue the treatment for the rest of his life.
The relatively new treatment of Bio Identical Hormones has proven to be a life saver for many patients. Many patients have successfully resumed a normal and healthy life thanks to the treatment. Many more will soon commence the treatment as well. It is a time tested and scientifically proven method and will last for a long time.
