Thinking about how to age healthily? Most of us are, these days! But we bet you don’t immediately think of BHRT pellets as something that can help you. It’s not surprising: Hormone therapy is mostly associated with women and menopause, right?
The good news, however, is that these little BHRT pellets can help you feel your best and stay as active and sociable as possible in all sorts of ways – despite the passing years.
In this article, we’re going to explain five ways this hormone treatment can bring a gleam of hope to your aging process. Let’s dive in!
1 Is Incontinence Affecting Your Wellbeing?
Urinary incontinence is a condition that can develop at any time. It can begin when your bladder muscles stretch and become less elastic, leading to involuntary leaks of urine.
The most common causes are pregnancy and childbirth, but also obesity, emotional stress, pelvic surgery, neurological disorders, aging, and menopause.
In addition, any extra weight you carry, compared to what’s normal and right for you (including during pregnancy), increases the pressures on your pelvic floor and can also lead to incontinence.
Before we look at BHRT pellets, however, let’s consider two ways you can prevent those embarrassing little leakages naturally:
- Pelvic floor exercises can help strengthen your pelvic muscles and increase bladder control.
- Returning to a healthy weight and keeping the extra pounds at bay is helpful not only for your pelvic floor but also for your health in general.
However, if you’ve tried to prevent urinary leaks unsuccessfully, BHRT might be for you. That’s because the hormone estrogen keeps our pelvic floor and muscles strong and stretchy and allows for better control of your bladder. As we age and reach menopause, estrogen levels drop, and an element of incontinence or stress incontinence can result.
So, rebalancing your estrogen levels with BHRT pellets might therefore be just what you need to restore your confidence! It’s hard to age well if urine leaks pose a threat.
2 Are You Experiencing Reduced Sex Drive?
Reduced sex drive in both men and women can be caused by many factors such as
- mood swings,
- lack of sleep, and
- even extreme dieting.
Other causes could be hormonal imbalances, menopause/andropause, breastfeeding, or an underlying medical condition such as diabetes or thyroid disease.
While you can improve your lifestyle by being more active and mindful about your diet, sometimes there’s no way around it, and hormone therapy might be the solution to your problems.
As we age, our hormone levels get out of sync and our libido suffers. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with BHRT pellets can be a safe, effective treatment for low sex drive by rebalancing estrogen and testosterone levels.
There’s no reason to stop sexual activity as you age!
3 Are You Feeling Extremely Tired?
A survey showed that American adults feel sleepy three days a week! And this was before long Covid was a recognized condition!
Fatigue is one of the most debilitating conditions, leaving us drained – and both mood and productivity suffer. If you resonate with this as an ongoing condition, your lack of energy is probably affecting your wellbeing and quality of life as you age.
The most common causes of fatigue are:
- Adrenal gland disorder
- Lack of quality sleep
- Thyroid dysfunction
Many of these causes are tightly related to hormonal imbalances. And that’s where BHRT pellet therapy may help put things right.
For example, your adrenal glands produce stress hormones such as cortisol and help keep your blood pressure, metabolism, and immune system under control. But if your body is in continuous ‘fight-flight’ stress mode, your adrenal glands work overtime and stop producing optimal hormone levels.
In addition, as we age and slowly reach menopause or andropause, other hormones fluctuate, too.
While there’s no clear cure for fatigue, you can generally manage it with a balanced diet, an exercise routine, and a healthy lifestyle overall.
However, if this doesn’t help, bioidentical hormone therapy can support your recovery by replenishing your low hormone levels and restoring balance. The energy you recover will help you tackle the aging process positively!
4 Is Premenstrual Syndrome Unbearable for You?
This is another one you might have expected when we mentioned BHRT pellets!
Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) involves physical and emotional symptoms that affect many females in their reproductive years.
Symptoms of PMS are usually mild and temporary but can become debilitating for some individuals – bloating, headaches, tender breasts, constipation, low sex drive, sleep issues, mood swings, anxiousness, lower back pain, and weight gain. The list seems neverending!
Women’s hormones fluctuate throughout their cycles, quite significantly from one week to the next. And just before menstruation, levels of progesterone and estrogen drop sharply, which explains the PMS symptoms.
Some symptoms can be improved through lifestyle changes around that time:
- Reduce bloating and fluid retention – limit salty foods, reduce portions but eat more frequently.
- Eat more complex carbs and calcium.
- Reduce caffeine and alcohol.
- Add regular exercise to your daily routine.
- Get some quality sleep.
However, BHRT pellets can be an excellent way to help balance your hormones and allow you to feel better during PMS – especially if you’ve tried the tips above and you’re still suffering from severe symptoms.
Consult with your medical provider, who will assess if BHRT pellets can help you. There’s no need to suffer all the way to your post-menopause years!
5 Are You Finding it Impossible to Lose Weight Despite Your Active Lifestyle?
It’s easy to feel upset and confused when you simply cannot lose weight despite being active, eating well, and having a healthy lifestyle overall.
The root cause might simply be hormonal imbalance.
In both men and women, aging comes with decreased hormone levels, leading to increased body fat and decreased muscle mass. The stubborn extra weight might be accompanied by fatigue, depression, mood swings, brain fog, headaches, and low sex drive.
If this is you, BHRT pellet therapy can help decrease or eliminate the hormonal imbalance and restore your natural weight.
