Hormone Replacement Therapy
Throughout our lifetime hormones affect our lives daily but as we enter our late 30’s hormonal changes are more pronounced. These imbalances can merely be an occasional inconvenience or they can mcause debilitating issues that interfere with our daily activities and well being. Toxins from the environment, pharmaceutical drugs, diet and products that we use, contribute to our already changing hormones as we age.
Common symptoms of hormone imbalances include: weight gain, low energy, hair loss, decreased sexual drive, depression, mood changes, memory loss, insomnia, poor concentration, chronic fatigue, chronic pain, skin sagginess and overall dryness. As we age, some of the causes of these symptoms may be due to one or more of the following: Adrenal dysfunction, Thyroid disease, Metabolic syndrome, Sexual dysfunction or reproductive changes. If you feel like any of these symptoms are negatively impacting your life you may be a great candidate for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.
What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a treatment that uses naturally derived hormones that are made to be identical to the hormones that are found in our bodies which naturally decline with age. This treatment allows the body to restore and rebalance its natural hormone levels. A thorough analysis of current hormone levels is done and a customized treatment plan is chosen accordingly, which is then followed up with subsequent lab tests and physical evaluations to ensure adequate blood levels as well as physical and emotional improvement.
