Why is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Needed?
Over 600,000 women undergo a hysterectomy annually. According to the National Women’s Health Information Center, one in three women in the US has had a hysterectomy by age 60. Combine that with all of the women in the 40+ age group that are experiencing peri/post-menopause, and you have a significant percentage of our population that is experiencing hormonal duress.
Menopause happens when the ovaries no longer produce high levels of the hormones estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. It is the permanent cessation of menstruation and reproductive capability.
A hysterectomy is surgery to remove the uterus. Some hysterectomies also include removal of the ovaries. Unlike natural, gradual menopause, surgically induced menopause causes an immediate decline or cessation in estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone production. As a result, a woman will feel a dramatic change in her body and mind as she experiences this rapid depletion of hormones.
Hormones are the messengers in the body that travel through the blood stream to activate and/or regulate your physical and chemical functions and processes throughout all body systems. Traditionally, women have been told that they really didn’t need the hormones made by these organs at this stage of their life. However, just because your ovaries and uterus may no longer need these hormones to function, the rest of your body does!

It’s About Balance
All hormones throughout the body act synergistically with each other. In fact, if the sex hormones are out of balance, it’s common for others to be as well. Because of this, dietary issues, and lifestyle choices, the providers at Renewed Vitality always take a holistic approach to balancing your hormones.
Our comprehensive lab tests include looking at all hormone functions, along with other health markers, and vitamin levels so that we can help you become healthy and feel better again. We are able to have meaningful discussions regarding other factors which can contribute to hormone imbalances with regard to nutrition, lifestyle, and exercise.
