Revitalize Your Vitality: How BHRT Can Transform Life After 40


Published May 8, 2024

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) offers a promising approach to address the hormonal changes that occur as people age, particularly those over 40. As individuals enter their 40s and beyond, hormone levels can fluctuate and decline, leading to a range of symptoms that can affect quality of life. BHRT, which uses hormones that are identical to those naturally produced by the body, can help restore hormonal balance and alleviate these symptoms, promoting overall well-being and vitality.

Estrogen

One of the key hormones that declines with age is estrogen. In women, estrogen levels begin to decline as they approach menopause, leading to symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and vaginal dryness. BHRT can help replenish estrogen levels, alleviating these symptoms and improving overall quality of life.

Progesterone

Progesterone is another hormone that can decline with age, particularly in women. Low progesterone levels can contribute to symptoms such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, and irregular menstrual cycles. BHRT can help balance progesterone levels, reducing these symptoms and promoting a sense of well-being.

Testosterone

Testosterone levels also decline with age, impacting both men and women. Low testosterone levels can lead to symptoms such as fatigue, decreased libido, muscle loss, and mood changes. BHRT can help restore testosterone levels, improving energy levels, libido, and overall vitality.

In addition to addressing specific symptoms, BHRT can also offer broader benefits for overall health and well-being. Hormones play a crucial role in maintaining bone density, muscle mass, and cardiovascular health. By restoring hormonal balance, BHRT can help reduce the risk of osteoporosis, improve muscle tone and strength, and support heart health.

BHRT is not a one-size-fits-all approach and should be tailored to each individual’s needs. A BodyLogicMD practitioner, specializing in hormone therapy can assess hormone levels through blood and urine tests, as well as recommend a personalized BHRT regimen to address specific symptoms and health goals.

BHRT Checklist

Here’s a checklist to help determine who might benefit from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT):

  1. Are you experiencing symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, or fatigue?
  2. Have you noticed changes in your libido or sexual function?
  3. Are you experiencing sleep disturbances, such as insomnia or restless sleep?
  4. Have you noticed changes in your muscle mass or strength?
  5. Are you experiencing symptoms of depression or anxiety?
  6. Are you experiencing memory lapses or cognitive difficulties?
  7. Have you been diagnosed with osteoporosis or are you concerned about bone health?
  8. Are you experiencing symptoms of vaginal dryness or discomfort?
  9. Have you noticed changes in your menstrual cycle or irregular periods?
  10. Are you experiencing symptoms of low testosterone, such as decreased muscle mass or libido (for men)?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may benefit from discussing BHRT with a BodyLogicMD practitioner specializing in hormone therapy. BHRT can help restore hormonal balance and alleviate these symptoms, improving your overall quality of life.

  • “Since I became a patient of Dr. Schultz and FINALLY found someone who could balance my hormones, I HAVE FELT BETTER THAN I DID WHEN I WAS 20!!! I swear this is true!! Because of her diagnostic genius, the level of bioidentical hormones she has fine-tuned to my individual needs have changed my life and restored me to be the best “me” I can be! Dr. Schultz is not just a doctor, I call her my HEALER 🙂 She LISTENS to me, she educates me and encourages me to take good care of myself and to make good choices, and then she allows me to make my own decisions and choices, because she respects that I am an intelligent adult and the expert on my own 58-year-old body. She treats me as a peer and her PARTNER in maintaining my own wellness, and she respects and cares about me! Our appointments start and end with a hug, and I leave her office feeling uplifted, understood, inspired, strengthened and healed in body mind and spirit. She is very holistic,  understanding that we are not just a cluster of symptoms, but that in order to have healthy bodies we must also address our issues, belief systems, and thoughts. Dr. Schultz is a wise and wonderful teacher and I am blessed to have her on my path:) And her staff is awesome too!”
