Hormone Replacement Therapy and Menopause: Get Better Sleep, Sex and Skin! | BHRT Doctor Charlotte NC

hormone replacement therapy

It is an inevitable fact of life that we all get older. As we age the production of natural hormones, like estrogen and testosterone, decreases in our body.

Integrity Wellness is dedicated to helping all of our patients achieve menopausal well-being by reintroducing new hormones into your body that have been lost over time. We are a medical hormone replacement therapy center in Charlotte, NC providing ongoing medical expertise to aid negative side-effects of menopause.


The Bright Side of Menopause

Dr. Reis is a highly skilled BHRT doctor in Charlotte NC that has helped thousands of women deal with the negative sides of menopause.

While some women go through menopause with mild to moderate effects, the transition can prove to be troubling for a majority of women. During menopause, a woman’s overall health can be impacted drastically. Menopause symptoms can include hot flashes, vaginal dryness, mood changes, loss of energy, unhealthy sleeping patterns and a decreased libido. 

Declining estrogen levels can result in reduced blood flow to the vagina, which can cause the inner tissues of the vagina and labia to become less stimulated during sexual stimulation. Additionally, extreme mood changes can harm a woman’s mental health which can also serve as a factor in diminished libido.


The Benefits of BHRT

BHRT is a natural solution in replacing your lost hormones with new and healthy ones, harmonizing your body’s system to function as a team. BHRT employs plant-based hormones identical to the ones found in your body, like estrogen during menopause, and boosts your immune system. 

BHRT quickly replaces those lacking estrogen levels to boost women that are experiencing menopause to have an overall boost in energy, libido, sustain a regimented sleeping pattern and increase heart and brain function. 

Increasing your level of estrogen in the body has also been linked to preventing potential health conditions including osteoporosis, dementia and mood swings. A balanced level of hormones in your body results in the production of collagen that keeps your skin from sagging and producing wrinkles.


BHRT Treatment and Outcomes

Dr. Reis is skilled in the Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy field and will ensure that all of our patients are completely prepared for the treatment. 

We begin all of our consultations with a comprehensive medical exam, and shortly after we take a blood sample to analyze the level of hormones in your body currently. If hormone levels are low, we administer a proper nutrition plan to increase those levels. We will administer the lowest possible dosage that addressed the client’s symptoms while collaborating with the patient on which method of BHRT is most suited for them. 

Most patients will see menopausal improvement within the first 3 weeks of treatment, while it takes 8 weeks to see full results. Dr. Reis will provide routine checkups every few months to monitor your progress and note any changes.


Do I Qualify to be a Candidate for BHRT?

If you are considering BHRT, it is highly recommended to talk to your doctor to ensure that you are eligible and healthy. Women that are not advised to get BHRT treatment have a history of high blood pressure, stroke, breast cancer and gallbladder disease.

Integrity Wellness will ensure the safest medical treatment for women who have a low-risk of post-treatment negative side-effects that include candidates that are within 10 years of menopause, suffer from moderate-to-severe hot flashes and are up to 59 years of age. 

The good news is that any individual can qualify to be a candidate for BHRT, depending on the guidance and recommendation from your doctor.
