Hormones play a crucial role in the functioning of your body and are critical for your health, physical shape, and well-being. As we age our body becomes less effective in producing vital hormones.

Hormone health is about living better, aging better, feeling better, and looking better. This can be achieved through the use of bio-identical hormones. It is important to maintain the healthy level of hormones throughout your lifetime.

Although hormone production typically begins to decrease in our 30’s, most people do not feel the full effects of declining hormones until closer to middle age. When hormones get out of balance, you may experience a variety of symptoms including; weight gain, fatigue, insomnia, osteoporosis, loss of libido, joint pain, brain fog, headaches, infertility, diabetes, and a host of other difficulties.

Men and women often have different symptoms relative to hormone issues.

Hormone Health & BHRT Questions

When we talk about bio-identical hormones it means we are replacing the hormones in your body molecule for molecule with hormones as identical as possible to hormones that your body is missing.
The Women’s Health Initiative Study showed that traditional HRT (not bio-identical, or BHRT) with synthetic estrogen and progestin (non-bio-identical estrogen and progesterone) may not be safe as these hormones can potentially cause increased risk of breast cancer, blood clots and cardiovascular disease. However, BHRT is very safe when administered by an experienced professional, and when hormones are prescribed in the correct form and dosage and closely monitored.

BHRT has been used in Europe for over 60 years without increased risk of breast cancer or cardiovascular events. In addition, there is typically weight loss with BHRT as well as reported overall improved well-being and quality of life.
Bio-identical hormones have the same molecular structure as hormones produced in the body, and thus have relatively few side effects. When using BHRT we are not introducing any new foreign substances to the body. We are regulating what is supposed to be there naturally. If side effects occur, they are largely tied to dosing issues. At J. Gruber Health Solutions, we closely monitor and evaluate each patient to ensure correct doses for proper balancing.
Estrogen and progesterone are commonly thought of as the most important hormones for ideal health in women. Although women require lower doses of testosterone than men, it is an equally important sex hormone for women. Restoring testosterone to optimal levels in women increases libido, strength, muscle, bone density and overall well-being.
By keeping your hormones balanced, BHRT will allow you to optimize the way you feel and look for your age. Once you stop utilizing BHRT, hormone levels quickly revert to their pre-treatment state and all benefits will quickly disappear. Many people who utilize BHRT choose to stay on the supplements indefinitely.
