Countless women are suffering from the effects of age related hormone decline, and the clinicians at Healthy Aging Medical Centers are experts in treating women experiencing estrogen deficiencies, which usually occur during perimenopause and menopause. Women going through age related estrogen decline can have bioidentical hormone replacement therapy programs tailored to suit their exact needs and imbalances. Women no longer have to suffer through the effects of age related hormonal transitions, such as perimenopause and menopause.
Estrogen is one of the main female sex hormones, and it works with its counterpart, progesterone to maintain female health. In women, there are three types of estrogen, which include estradiol, estrone, and estriol. During menopause and perimenopause, estradiol is the strongest type of estrogen that tends to decline the most and is responsible for many of the symptoms that occur during menopause. Estriol has been used to protect against breast cancer, and it has less of an effect on the cells of the uterus and breasts. Estrone is produced after menopause, and it is responsible for the formation of increased breast and uterine tissue, and women with high levels of estrone can encounter fibroids, breast cancer, endometriosis, or uterine cancer.
Estrogen maintains numerous functions in the female body, some of which include:
- Maintains Feminine Appearance
- Regulating Body Temperature
- Detoxifying The Brain
- Keeping Skin Lustrous
- Regulating Body Temperature
- Strengthens Bones
- Forms Collagen
- Improves Memory
- Reduces Vaginal Dryness
- Eliminates Food Cravings
- Decreases Migraines
- Improves Moods
In order for women to maintain health and wellness, all types of estrogen need to be balanced, and post menopausal women that balance estradiol and estriol can keep levels of estrone reduced. Healthy Aging Medical Centers in New Jersey can help women to improve overall levels of estrogen, and the clinicians can make sure that women have the estrogens that prevent disease and illness at optimal levels. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help women to restore deficient estrogen with a version of the hormone that is identical in molecular structure and function to what is produced in the human body. Balanced estrogen can potentially prevent several age related diseases, which may include:
Alzheimer’s Disease & Dementia
Estrogen works to detoxify the brain, and low levels of estrogen have been directly related to Alzheimer’s disease. Many women suffering from estrogen deficiencies offer complain of having a poor memory, mental fogginess, and reduced concentration. Supplementing the body with estrogen can help the brain to detoxify, which may help in preventing degeneration in the brain.
Low levels of estrogen can cause several sexual issues for women, including low libido. Because estrogen is a primary sex hormone, it fuels a healthy sex drive, and women with low estrogen may not feel desire for sexual activity. Menopausal and perimenopausal women also experience vaginal dryness, and in some cases, they can experience the inability to climax. Replenishing estrogen can help women to regain enjoyment of sexual activity, reduce vaginal dryness, and improve a woman’s ability to climax.
In women going through perimenopause or menopause, a lack of estrogen can lead to thinning bones. This is because estrogen is directly responsible for the absorption of calcium and other minerals that work to keep bones strong. Reduced estrogen levels can result in reduced absorption, which can cause bones to become brittle, porous, and easily breakable. Restoring estrogen to healthy levels can help women to strengthen their bones and reduce the chances of developing osteoporosis.
Breast or Uterine Cancer
High levels of certain types of estrogens can lead to estrogen dominance, which fuels tissue growth in the breast and uterus. After menopause, levels of one type of estrogen fall, while another type rises, and this reserve type of estrogen fuels cell replication in the breast and uterus. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy uses estrogen that is equivalent to the type that is produced in the female body, which helps women to reap the benefits of estrogen supplementation and prevent age related diseases.
Estrogen directly works with the hypothalamus, which is the body’s temperature control center to balance body temperature. Commonly, women suffering from estrogen imbalances often suffer from hot flashes and night sweats; however, women that use bioidentical estrogen can reduce the occurrences of temperature fluctuations. Balanced levels of estrogen can regulate the hypothalamus and prevent further issues with temperature regulation.

Other therapies that may be utilized to help augment bioidentical estrogen therapy may include nutritional and exercise programs, stress reduction, and detoxification modalities.
