Are your hormones imbalanced?

Updated: Apr 6



Hormones such as estrogen and testosterone impact a wide range of bodily functions, ranging from energy levels to overall mood. These hormones are available at different levels throughout the body and require optimal balance. Unfortunately, as we age, our hormones can become unbalanced resulting in a wide range of symptoms such as:

  • Reduced energy

  • Change in weight

  • Sleep problems

  • Acne

  • Brain fog

  • Loss of muscle mass

  • Low libido

  • Hot flashes

  • Loss of the sense of well being

Hormone Imbalances for Women

Estrogen is the female hormone primarily responsible for mood and sense of well-being. It also helps maintain the natural moisture in the skin, eyes, and vagina. As important as estrogen to optimal health, progesterone is another key hormone that balances estrogen and works to maintain sleep, mood, and cholesterol control. While often neglected, testosterone plays a major role in women by helping preserve muscle and bone strength. Hormone imbalances can occur when we age and can increase the risk of diseases such as osteoporosis, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease.


Hormone Imbalances for Men

Testosterone is one of the chief hormones in men, and levels can decrease as early as age thirty by 3% to 10% per year. Over time, testosterone decreases can be substantial and cause significant symptoms including, decreased muscle and strength, increased fat, loss of libido, depressed mood, and difficulty achieving and sustaining an erection


What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

In recent years, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) has been grabbing more attention. But what exactly is it? BHRT is used to help correct hormonal imbalances as people grow older. BHRT differs from traditional hormone replacement therapy because the hormones used have the exact molecular structure as the ones the body naturally produce. Studies have repeatedly demonstrated that balanced hormone levels result in optimal health, and decreases our risk for disease. Patents reported:

  • Improved overall quality of life

  • Feeling younger and happier

  • Increased energy

  • Increased muscle strength and weight control

How does BHRT Work?

We use sterile pellets which are dosed according to your needs and are similar to the size of a grain of rice. Sterile pellets have been around for a long time and are commonly considered one of the most natural ways hormones can be delivered to the body. The sterile pellets treat hormone imbalances by placing them beneath the skin, during a simple office visit. The body slowly absorbs small doses of the hormones from the pellets which allows a consistent delivery of the desired hormones. Typically, it takes 3 to 4 months for the for the pellet to be fully absorbed, with no need to remember to take pills, or apply any type of creams.

Is BHRT Therapy right for you?

If you are experiencing symptoms of hormone imbalance such as difficulty sleeping, depression, decreased sexual desire, hot flashes, you may be a candidate for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.
