Decrease in

Essential Hormones

The aging process starts from the day we are born. Decreased endurance and muscle strength, skin aging, vaginal dryness, diminished libido and memory loss are merely the tip of the iceberg when it comes to complaints that may arise. One of the causes of these complaints is the steady decrease of essential hormones that steer and influence numerous bodily processes. The Amsterdam Kliniek uses bioidentical hormones to counter these shortages in an attempt to not only pull the handbreak on the aging process, but actively diminish age-related complaints. This why these hormones can be beneficial for an anti-aging treatment.

Ever since menopause I suffered from vaginal dryness. Regular hormone treatment didn’t work and intercourse became impossible. Dr. Boeken put me on a bioidentical oestrogen gel that I rub on the inside of my arms and has turned my sex life around: no more mess and pain free sex. My husband and I are very grateful!

Additionally, bioidentical hormones can be used effectively to treat menstrual complaints or relieve  symptoms (hot flashes and sleeplessness) that can occur during or after menopause.  Bioidentical hormones are hormones that have the same (identical) chemical composition as those produced by the body itself, unlike synthetic hormones that only look like the hormones that the body produces. This is why bioidentical hormones tend to be tolerated more easily and have far fewer side effects than synthetic hormones. There are different kinds of bioidentical hormones of which estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA and pregnenolone are the most common.  

Bioidentical hormones are generally applied in the form of a gel that is rubbed onto the skin and absorbed though the subcutaneous, superficial blood vessels. The advantage is that this in way the liver is significantly less burdened than if (synthetic) hormones are taken orally. This also minimizes the chance of numerous side effects, while synthetic hormones (especially if used for a prolonged period of time) can increase the likelihood of conditions like thrombosis.
