Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)


the past several decades, the unseen symptoms of decreased hormones in menopause and andropause that affect the acheter sildenafil sandoz quality of life have been defined.

Low sex drive, anxiety, depression, lack of motivation, weight gain, irritability, and insomnia are all possible symptoms of low hormone levels. The reason for asking for Bio-Identical hormones is that we respect nature’s wisdom. Why not use a naturally occurring hormone to boost your declining levels? Another reason to ask for Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is

that doctors who use this phrase are more likely to be up-to-date on the best methods of hormone delivery. We know that when given orally, hormones need to be absorbed in the digestive tract, get processed by your Liver, and then go out to the

bloodstream. This causes decreased levels of absorption, decreased levels of free hormone, and more chance of negative effects of hormones occurring, such as the raised levels of clotting factors which can contribute to heart disease and strokes. Educated physicians will use an alternative route of delivery, such as transdermal (cream form).

Physicians not only understand how to use hormones to treat your symptoms but also understand the Biology and Biochemistry involved in low hormone levels. At Kohana, we will not only help you look and feel better, but we will treat the underlying issues. Many times that involves diet and lifestyle recommendations, and other times it will involve supplements and natural medicines to increase organ health. In the case of low hormone levels, two main factors are

involved: diet and lifestyle. Hormones are made from cholesterol? How many people are on low fat diets and/or statin drugs? The liver processes hormones out of your body every day. You need the substrates to make new hormones every day. Dietary change and supplementation with essential fatty acids (such as YES, a product found exclusively at Kohana) may be in order. Second, stress depletes hormone levels. Initially, when you are stressed your body will shunt fatty acids and precursor hormones over to the production of Cortisol (the stress hormone). This decreases the levels of progesterone, DHEA, testosterone and estrogen. Next, the adrenal glands, which produce Cortisol, get tired and hormonal pathways get sluggish. We need to feed the adrenals (and potentially other glands) to increase health. This may include glandular supplements.

Kohana can help your overall body processes by a variety of means. Included are homeopathic medicines which can help the body regain balance. This is an energetic form of medicine and studies are now proving various forms of energetic medicine to be effective.
