Manage Hormonal Imbalance and Rejuvenate Your Life.
Hormone levels are constantly fluctuating – a normal process that occurs at every stage of life. The body responds to these changes with physical manifestations that can affect the way a person feels on a daily basis. When hormone levels are imbalanced, it is normal to feel uncomfortable, sluggish, and just not quite yourself.
Types of Hormones
Both men and women are affected by hormonal imbalances. These changes can occur at any age, though they are especially common in people ages 40 and up. There are four primary types of hormones naturally present in both men and women, though in different quantities.:

What Is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?
Hormone optimization, or bioidentical hormone therapy, is the process of restoring the hormonal balance in both women and men after they have reached menopause and andropause, respectively. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, also known as BHRT, is a method of replacing or supplementing hormones with naturally-derived hormones like estrogens, progesterone, and androgens that are biologically identical to those produced by a woman’s ovaries (or by a man’s testicles).
BHRT is not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach, but rather a personalized hormone balancing therapy that can restore the energy and vigor for life you once enjoyed. There are three major sex hormones: estradiol and progesterone in women, and testosterone in men.
The physicians at Rose Wellness have been specializing in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for over a decade and have successfully treated thousands of patients.
Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BHRT)
The primary and most notable benefit of bioidentical hormone therapy is that it can restore optimal hormone balance in the body and help you regain your youthfulness and vitality. BHRT can be tailored to meet the specific needs of each individual. Other benefits include:
- Bioidentical estrogen and progesterone for women can reduce the risk of osteoporosis and breast cancer, and restore the bone density to a certain extent.
- Bioidentical hormone balancing can relieve the uncomfortable symptoms associated with PMS, menopause and andropause.
- BHRT supports the immune function, increases endurance, stamina and energy levels and decreases joint pain caused by hormonal deficiencies.
- Bioidentical testosterone can help aging males maintain lean muscle mass and strength and improve concentration and memory. It can also could help improve cholesterol levels
- Bioidentical hormones also offer aesthetic benefits. For example, estrogen can improve skin elasticity and help skin regain its radiant and healthy glow.
- Because BHRT is patient-specific, dosing varies by person. Finally, many people who undergo bio-identical hormone replacement treatment feel as if they have stumbled upon the “fountain of youth.”
