Hormone Therapy

Top 20 Reasons to use Hormone Therapy|Women

  1. Insomnia: Insomnia or wakefulness leads to decreased production of melatonin and Human Growth Hormone, which can then lead to weight gain and depression.
  2. Night sweats: Excessive perspiration and hot flashes, which can be embarrassing, uncomfortable, and cause wakefulness at night.
  3. Depression: Low levels of progesterone and estrogen can leave a woman feeling “blue,” or sad, and may cause erratic moods, often leading to the need for antidepressants.
  4. Dry skin, irritated itchy skin: This can often lead to skin changes and a trip to the dermatologist.
  5. Vaginal dryness/shrinking: without hormone therapy, vaginal walls become thin and irritated, possibly increasing the susceptibility to infection.
  6. Urinary incontinence: helps prevent involuntary loss of urine.
  7. Painful intercourse: vaginal dryness interferes with sexual relationships, and it hurts!
  8. Urinary tract infections (UTI’s): increased incidence of UTI’s associated with loss of estrogen. There are more estrogen receptors in the genital-urinary tract than any other place in the female body.
  9. Mental confusion/memory problems: Loss of estrogen and testosterone can lead to loss of memory, reduced concentration and poor recall.
  10. Osteoporosis: Helps restore bone mineral density and prevent further loss.
  11. Oral problems: HT is associated with decreased risk of tooth loss and decay.
  12. Low libido (sex drive): Loss of hormones can interfere with sexual relationships, reduce sexual drive, sexual sensation and can lead to guilt and depression.
  13. Colon cancer: HRT reduces risk of colon cancer in postmenopausal women.
  14. Alzheimer’s disease/Parkinson’s disease: HRT delays the onset of both.
  15. Cataracts: reduces incidence and complications.
  16. Macular degeneration: age-related, can be reduced with HRT.
  17. Cardiovascular disease: raises HDL (good cholesterol), lowers LDL (bad cholesterol), and improves overall health of the heart.
  18. Vascular constriction: Hormones improve vasodilatation of arterial walls.
  19. Accelerated aging effect: Restoring natural hormone balance can help a women feel and look younger longer, reduce the onset of wrinkling and improve the tone of the skin.
  20. Blood sugar control: Glucose control: Hormones can help improve glucose (blood sugar) levels, and reduces insulin resistance. This also helps control appetite!
