Hormone Optimization Therapy

Each part of your body from your heart to your lungs to your hands has a specific job to do. How does your body keep it all straight and cause all your parts to work in concert as a whole? The simple answer: hormones. 

Hormones are essentially chemical messengers the glands in your endocrine system. They give directions to the different parts of your body and coordinate complex processes like metabolism, growth, and even alter your behavior.

Hormones are interrelated, however each one of them performs specific functions in your body, making hormone imbalance an absolutely vital issue to address. 

When your hormones are properly balanced and you’re working as they should, your body functions well — assuming other systems are working properly. However, if the hormones in your body are thrown into a state of being unbalanced, you’ll experience its effects.

Hormone balancing treatments have wide-ranging benefits your whole body will experience, and it has the potential to greatly enhance your physical and mental well-being.

The Ill Effects Of Imbalanced Hormones

Imbalanced hormones can affect men and women in similar ways, but there are some symptoms that are particularly unique to each gender. 

Here are some of the symptoms you may be experienced if you are suffering from a hormonal imbalance:

Signs Of Hormonal Imbalance In Women

  • Increased fatigue
  • Hot flashes
  • Loss of libido
  • Insomnia
  • Vaginal thinning & dryness
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

Signs Of Hormonal Imbalance In Men

  • Loss of libido
  • Difficulty with sexual performance
  • Loss of muscle
  • Increased fatigue
  • Decline in cognitive functioning

How Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy Can Help

One of the difficult things about hormonal imbalances is they don’t heal naturally. It’s not like a cut or scrape that your body can heal on its own. If hormonal imbalances are not dealt with, they can lead to more serious issues down the road.

In order to be truly effective, hormone balancing treatments must focus on a total hormone balance, and not merely deal with a suppressing of the accompanying symptoms.

With bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), you can work toward restoring that balance. Unlike synthetic hormones, which have their fair share of side effects, these hormones are biochemically identical to the ones found in your own body.

Bio-identical hormone treatments are not fantastical solutions that reverse the aging process. However, having optimal levels of hormones in your body does reduce the risk of acquiring diseases that usually come with age. Studies show that there’s a strong correlation between using BHRT therapy and risk reduction for serious illnesses, including:

  • Diseases like alzheimers or dementia that cause a sharp decline in cognitive functioning
  • Cardiovascular diseases and heart attacks
  • Osteoporosis
  • Certain types of colon cancer
