Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Benefits

Raleigh, NC Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Doctor, Jennifer Yap, D.O. at Biofunctional Med provides Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). Men and women from the Raleigh and Wake County and Durham County, North Carolina areas come to her in complete despair. Nothing they have tried has helped to alleviate their symptoms of fatigue, irritability, weight gain, low sex drive, and dozens of other issues related to changing hormone levels. This can and often does lead to feelings of hopelessness and depression.

By the time people see Dr. Yap they are ready to try something new. They are frustrated with general practice doctors treating their symptoms and not solving the root problems. Even worse are the primary care physicians, friends, and family members who say that it is a normal part of aging and all anyone can do is just deal with it.

If any of this sounds familiar to you, the first thing to realize is that you do not have to put up with the symptoms of hormone decline taking over your life. Jennifer Yap, D.O. has helped many people regain their health and wellness with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. She can do the same for you.

How Hormones Get Unbalanced

One of the persistent myths that Dr. Yap’s patients believe is that only women experience hormonal changes as they age. While all women go through menopause, a large percentage of men also deal with symptoms brought on by the hormonal changes that come with aging.

While normal aging is the most common reason for hormonal imbalance, it is not the only one. Stress, an unhealthy diet, certain illnesses, inadequate sleep, and poor lifestyle choices are also contributing factors. If you suspect that unbalanced hormones are causing your symptoms, call to schedule an evaluation with Jennifer Yap, D.O. at Biofunctional Med.

How Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Can Help You Get Back to You

When women stop producing estrogen and men slow down their production of testosterone, it seems obvious that restoring the balance they once had can make them feel better. However, most mainstream doctors fail to see the connection. They are trained to diagnose and treat disease. Since hormone imbalance is not an illness, they are at a loss for what to do.

Jennifer Yap, D.O. on the other hand, introduces hormones into your body that are identical in cell structure and purpose to what it previously manufactured on its own.

Within one month of starting treatment, you may notice improvement in some or all of these areas:

  • Balanced moods: You no longer experience feelings of hostility, anxiety, or depression that you can’t explain. Your emotions are on a much more even keel.
  • Increased sex drive: Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy increases the libido of both genders to what it was before they started suffering the effects of hormone loss.
  • More regular sleep patterns: Hormone imbalance affects the hypothalamus, the area of the brain that regulates sleep. Restoring that balance helps decrease insomnia and gets you back to a more predictable pattern of sleep.
  • Fat loss and improved muscle mass:  Low levels of estrogen makes it hard to lose body fat while low testosterone levels have a negative effect on muscle tone. Replacing these hormones helps to eliminate both problems.

Raleigh, NC Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Doctor, Jennifer Yap, D.O. at Biofunctional Med can help men and women to safely and effectively reduce the signs and symptoms of aging.
