Show Summary: “Bioidentical hormones do more than just build muscle; they boost energy and motivation and slow aging. If you want to age gracefully, supporting your hormones, adrenals, and thyroid is essential.”As we age, our body's natural hormone production declines, causing shifts in energy, mood, libido, or weight that can disrupt our sense of well-being. These subtle changes may indicate a hormonal imbalance.If you're experiencing these shifts, it may be worth considering bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). BHRT offers a natural approach to restore hormones to their optimal levels. However, the confusion around choosing the right bioidentical hormones and undergoing the necessary tests to evaluate hormone therapy effectiveness is common.In this episode, Jared Price, Head Nurse Practitioner at Provohealth, returns to shed light on this often-overlooked topic.
