Ageing can be fickle topic shrouded in embarrassment and denial. However, at EvelineCharles we believe that with age comes timeless beauty and wisdom. As we get older, we have a deeper understanding of who we are as individuals, and we have mastered our beauty regime to a tee! For many, the first sign of crowsfeet triggers the realization that they may have started the ageing process. However, for many, ageing isn’t just the dwindling sense of physical allure; it’s a regress of both mental acuity and physical vitality that culminates in a constant fog of mood swings, fatigue, insomnia, and decreased libido. This state of general malaise is often caused by hormone imbalances and can be remedied by Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) because when you give your body the support it needs, it can effectively balance itself because it is programmed for stability and wellness. This incredible treatment can restore, rejuvenate, and revitalize your body and mind and fight aging from the inside out. Read more and see if BHRT is right for you!
What are hormones?
Hormones are produced by the endocrine glands to send chemical messages from your brain, telling your internal organs how to function. As early as 25, hormone production tapers off and we begin to age. The signals become weaker and this is when the signs of ageing begin to advance. Hormones manage and regulate your metabolism, reproductive system, muscle tone and strength, skin, and sex drive, and when hormone levels recede, symptoms relating these processes can appear. Generally, hormone imbalances are linked with menopause and andropause in the middle-stages of life, but can also be early-onset with postpartum and other factors.

What is BHRT and how does it differ from traditional hormone treatments?
BHRT is a natural way to alleviate symptoms of hormone imbalances. Unlike the synthetic hormone treatments most doctors prescribe, bioidentical hormones are not made from the urine of mares. Bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to the hormones that your body naturally produces. Studies have shown that many synthetic hormone treatments can cause serious side effects such as blood clots and cancer and are sometimes even paired with antidepressants to help diminish the effects on a person’s mental state.
What are the benefits of taking Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
- Look and feel younger
- Improve sleep quality
- Eliminate hot flashes
- Improve productivity and mental acuity
- Balance mood
- Increase libido

BHRT is more than just a superficial aging treatment; it’s anti-aging from the inside out! It restores your zest for life and makes you more present and active in your own life as well as others.
