A patient asks regarding a therapy with bioidentical hormones:
Do I need a comprehensive hormone status for a treatment with nature-identical hormones?
Yes, a comprehensive analysis of all relevant hormone values and a physical examination are preconditions in order to be able to start a therapy with bioidentical hormones (BHRT). Finally the treatments serves as adjustment of the body’s hormone levels through tailor-made supply of bioidentical hormones, wherefore a comprehensive anamnesis is as well required in addition to a complete hormone status.
The aim of a Hormonal Regeneration® by DDr. Heinrich with bioidentical hormones is to restore the hormonal balance. Hormonal imbalances can have different reasons. Psychological strain, distress, poor eating habits, or simply increasing age and the loss of hormonal glands efficiency related to aging can cause deficiencies and imbalances.
The consequences of hormonal imbalances make their presence felt both inward and outward:
Depending on lacking hormones general well-being is reduced, listlessness, fatigue, and premature skin aging, such as sunken or sagging cheeks, occur. Sudden overweight is often induced by the lack of hormones as well. If the body is lacking thyroxine of the thyroid gland, which is more frequently the case in women as in men, the metabolism is running only in energy saving mode, whereby the body burns less calories and stores more of them in form of fat depots. Even there bioidentical hormones can help to get rid of superfluous kilos again.
