BIOIDENTICAL HORMONES FOR WOMEN in Oakland, California

Rebalance Your Hormones and Reclaim Your Life

Hormone Replacement Therapy for women helps to balances out testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone levels in women during and after menopause. As women age, hormone production is decreased. This decrease in hormone levels is responsible for symptoms like decreased energy, decreased libido, weight gain, and loss of muscle and bone, all of which can start about ten years before you reach menopause.

Although this is a normal part of life and aging, it can be accompanied by some unpleasant changes. Hormone replacement therapy aims to help with symptoms during this stage of life so that you can feel your best and enjoy your life. Dr. Reshma Vasanwala understands the challenges many women experience and listens to your concerns with empathy and nonjudgment.

She will review your medical history and do both blood and urine testing to get the most accurate information on your hormone levels and other health and nutrition markers. From there, she will come up with the most comprehensive treatment plan that is individualized based on your results and determine whether or not you are a good candidate for hormone replacement therapy.

What Are Bioidentical Hormones for Women?

The Bioidentical HRT Secret

For women to look and feel their best, their hormones need to be in balance (estrogen, progesterone, AND testosterone). These hormones play a significant role in everyday life. They tell our bodies how to function and thrive. Hormones help us grow, maintain a healthy weight, regulate metabolism, regulate sexual function, balance mood, maintain memory, and so much more.

As hormone levels decline ( as early as in your 30s), you start to feel the changes in your body as a result. Symptoms include fatigue, weight gain, low libido, foggy memory, muscle and bone loss, and skin changes. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) could be beneficial as you restore your body back to better functional levels. Unlike synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones are an exact replica of the hormones produced by your body, while synthetic hormones are made from animal products (like horse urine) and are not the exact chemical structure of the hormones made in your body. Dr. Vasanwala uses a natural approach to HRT by using plant-based bioidentical hormones. BHRT offers a safe and effective treatment option that is free of synthetics and animal derivatives.
