Expanding Mirror Care Treatments
We are excited to announce that we are adding a new treatment to Mirror Care! As part of our effort to bring healthcare to you, and our mission to improve health for all, we are launching natural bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. This treatment will be available to customers in Florida and Illinois immediately, and we continue to expand into other states rapidly.
But what is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (or BHRT for short), and how can it potentially help you?
What Are Hormones?
Hormones are molecules that are synthesized and secreted by specialized cells in the body called endocrine glands. These molecules are released into the blood stream and exert effects on target cells. Hormones turn on our cellular machinery and cause increased metabolism, cellular repair, cell replication, and an increase in protein synthesis.
All aspects of aging are influenced by our body’s hormones. As we age, hormone levels decrease, and the cellular receptor sites become less sensitive to stimulation by hormones. Deficiencies in hormones and endocrine dysfunction are a cause of the signs and symptoms of aging, and research has shown that many of the changes associated with normal aging, including osteoporosis, muscle atrophy, sleep disorders, and decreased sociability, are in part caused by a decrease in hormones. Additionally, research has shown that declining hormone levels can cause many of the ailments associated with aging, including increased body fat, decreased bone mass, diabetes, heart disease, and even hypertension.
Slow Down the Aging Process with BHRT
Nothing we currently know of can reverse aging; however, natural bioidentical hormones manage the aging process. Natural bioidentical hormones, which our bodies recognize and break down naturally, can help us maintain good health, potentially decrease illness, and promote better quality of life.
BHRT will not increase our lifespans, but it can help increase our quality of life and improve symptoms of aging.
Potential Benefits of BHRT
The goal with BHRT is to return our bodies to having optimal hormone levels, which can help us address many symptoms of aging. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help us:
- Increase energy levels
- Improve metabolism (support weight loss)
- Improve sexual health and libido
- Increase muscle tone
- Improve sleep patterns (reduce insomnia)
- Improve bone health
- Improve skin texture, hydration, and tightness
- Improve cognition and mental acuity
- Cope with stress
- Decrease incidence of illness
There are many additional potential benefits from BHRT, with the overall intent to improve and prolong our quality of life.
How to Start
For now, we all have to accept that we age – that’s part of the natural cycle of life. What we don’t have to accept is the speed of aging and the symptoms that come with it. If you are experiencing a symptom of aging, whether it be low energy, poor sleep, that inability to lose weight like you used to, or even decreased libido, BHRT may be right for you.
