True Health

It is quite common for a woman to balance a career, motherhood, and family - often at the neglect of her own health. Being well informed about health and wellness is becoming increasingly important - women are far better at seeing their doctors than men and take better care of themselves. However, when it comes to a hormone imbalance or deficiency and preparing for menopause, many women do not know where to start, but they are beginning to gain excessive weight, to suffer from insomnia and loss of sexual desire, to become anxious, and to have drier and thinner skin and hair.

As a woman, you are biologically different from a man in many respects. You have female hormones that can protect you from some diseases yet put you at risk for others. You are vulnerable to heart disease, osteoporosis, breast and ovarian cancer and many other conditions. Women’s health is not just about looking good and making it through the day, it is also about being informed regarding what is available and regaining your lost vitality. Prime MDs evidence-based hormone therapy treats pre-menopausal and menopausal symptoms and can also enhance long-term health and quality of life.

Pre-Menopause and Menopause

Women in their mid-thirties and forties can suffer from Pre-Menopause Syndrome and women in their fifties and beyond can suffer from menopausal symptoms. This causes certain hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, thyroid hormone, and even testosterone to decline. Many physicians misdiagnose hormone-deficiency related symptoms or lack sufficient experience with hormone replacement treatment programs to find appropriate solutions tailored to each patient.

As women age, hormone levels naturally decrease, causing the symptoms associated with menopause.. Many women also experience an increase in abdominal fat due to a loss of estrogen. Experiencing loss of mental sharpness, endurance, libido, emotional well-being, and general decline in physical health is normal, but here are treatment options that can prevent or reduce these symptoms

Bio-identical hormone replacement

BHRT is the use of supplemental doses of hormones that have a chemical structure identical to the hormones the human body naturally produces. Many of the bio-identical hormones are made from soybeans and wild yams, which contain unique compounds that are made into identical replicas of hormones the body naturally produces. They are used for their cost-effectiveness and efficacy. Bio-identical hormones are available as creams, suppositories, pills, or injections.
