Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women
Syracuse Menopause and Perimenopause Specialist, Wendy Scinta, M.D. help women correct hormone imbalances. Many women assume hot flashes, mood swings, and weight gain they experience as they approach middle age are normal signs of pending menopause that they just have to accept. If that is something you believe, than we have good news for you. While it’s true that these are typical menopause symptoms, they could also be related to a general hormone imbalance that is easy to correct.
Are You Dealing with a Hormone Imbalance?
There are six primary hormones in a woman’s body that work together to support reproductive health, stabilize mood, provide energy, and several other essential functions. These hormones include cortisol, estrogen, pregnenolone, progesterone, testosterone, and thyroid. As you get older, your body naturally begins to slow the production of some of these hormones, while other’s cease to be made at all. The effects of hormone imbalance in women range from feeling mildly uncomfortable to being totally disabled by the symptoms. Most women fall somewhere in between. If you are in your mid 30s to early 50s, you probably recognize several of the following symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance:

How Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Helps to Restore Balance
We believe that hormone balance is essential for women to achieve long-term good health and feel a deep sense of satisfaction with life. While synthetic replacement hormones can help to achieve this to some degree, the doctor prefers the natural approach offered by Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. The term bioidentical means that the hormones used to treat your symptoms replicate what your body formerly produced on its own. Due to the identical cell structure of the replacement hormones, most women tolerate treatment extremely well and don’t experience the side effects that are common with synthetic hormone replacement therapy.
