Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
What are Bio Identical Hormones?
Bio identical hormones are an exact chemical replica of the hormones that are naturally produced by the body; matching the body’s natural hormones molecule by molecule.
At the Murray Center, we use only Bio-identical Hormones and re-adjust you to a more youthful and vibrant you. We also use selected nutritional products, that we feel are the best in the world, to help you to feel and perform at your best.
What we do not is run endless unnecessary tests that do not affect your treatment options whatsoever.
Who needs Bio identical Hormones?
Hormonal imbalances affect both men and women and can take place at any age. Bio identical hormones are a natural solution to a hormone imbalance that helps to alleviate symptoms of perimenopause, menopause and andropause. Hormones also dictate every aspect of weight loss, from appetite cravings to how well you burn fat and where your fat is stored, yet 80% of all adults over 40 are hormonally imbalanced. (It is pert of all human aging process).
Balancing hormone levels is the secret to being more energized, losing weight, sleeping well, living stress-free and feeling better.
Why Your Hormones Need to be in Balance?
We all know that healthy diet and exercise have a lot to do with the way we look and feel. But did you know that our body’s hormones also play a fundamental role in every aspect of our life? In Suzanne Somers book Breakthrough, Dr. Thierry Hertoghe of Belgium – known as the father of Bio identical hormones – explains the importance of hormone balance.
“Your body contains more than one hundred different types of hormones, and they pour into your bloodstream at the rate of thousands of billions of units a day. Hormones regulate your heartbeat and your breathing. Hormones make men “men” and women “women”. Hormones put you to sleep at night and they wake you up in the morning. They control your blood pressure, build up bone, maintain muscle tone and lubricate joints. Hormones govern growth; they make the body produce energy and heat. Hormones burn fat. Hormones govern the menstrual cycle and allow pregnancy (and birth) to occur. They fight stress, prevent fatigue, calm anxiety and relieve depression. Hormones make and keep memories. Hormones maintain the correct level of sugar in the blood and tissues. They resist allergic reactions and infections. They soothe pain. Hormones control your sex drive, virility and fertility. They stimulate your brain and your immune system.”
Hormone levels peak in our early 20s and decline significantly as we grow older which eventually results in premature aging. The goal of age management medicine is to help us understand our body’s hormones and the need to replace the hormones we lose in the aging process through supplementation, nutrition, exercise, and hormone optimization.
