What Does Age Have to do With it?

Hormonal imbalances are possible at a younger age from exposure to toxins, excess fat, and if hormones have not matured properly. As we age, we often experience a myriad of symptoms such as chronic fatigue, difficulty sleeping, decreased sex drive, as well as weight gain due to declining hormones. Oftentimes, hormone signals decline and metabolism slows down, leading to excess fat storage which compounds the problem further. Menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness are also associated with hormonal changes.

What Hormones are Affected if There is an Imbalance?

Testosterone, pregnenolone, progesterone, estrogen, DHEA, and cortisol start to decline as we age. Bioidentical hormones replicate these hormones to limit health risks like an adverse reaction to the hormone pills. Andropause in men and menopause in women are very common causes of hormone imbalance. Cortisol excess and growth hormone decline are also evaluated. Fasting insulin is also tested.

What Can be Done to Solve the Problem?

Hormone therapy of the above-listed hormones includes thyroid, insulin, as well as Vitamin D treatments. Menopausal hormone therapy or estrogen therapy is a popular form of hormone therapy for pre and postmenopausal women. Combination hormone therapy may include bioidentical hormone replacements such as estrogen pills or shots of hormone replacement. With this treatment, you now have an option to fight the effects of aging and hormone imbalance.

What is it?

Hormone replacement therapy uses identical forms of hormones that are naturally found in your body. These are utilized along the same metabolic pathways as the naturally produced hormones in your body. What’s great about these hormones is that they have fewer side effects when compared with synthetic ones. Usually, a blend of natural hormones works better than high doses of a single hormone.
