Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
When You Stop And Look Around, Life Is Pretty Amazing…
You Should Be Enjoying It Regardless Of Age!
But sometimes, a hormonal imbalance can interfere with the enjoyment of life.
Unfortunately, almost all of us over the age of 40 (and in many cases over 30) begin to experience hormone imbalance. This is because over our lifetime, we are exposed to environmental and dietary toxins, which contribute to the natural decline of hormones as we age.
Hormones are one of the Main Communication Systems in the Body
Similar to the multiple instruments that make up an orchestra, changes in a hormone or group of hormones affect the entire symphony. Hormone levels naturally change with the seasons of life to help maintain a rhythm of balance. However, an imbalance can turn the symphony into a cacophony.
At FH Medical, we recognize that each person has unique healthcare needs. That is why the overall goal of our hormone program is to honor the hormonal symphony by reintegrating areas of dissonance.
Women Hormonal Imbalance Symptoms
Signs of hormonal imbalance in women are a very real quality of life issue. Every woman needs to be aware of the signs and symptoms of hormonal imbalance. If just one hormone is out of balance, a woman may experience any one or more of the following:
- Trouble Sleeping
- Lack of Sex drive
- Hot flashes
- Premenstrual symptoms
- Trouble sleeping
- Weight gain
- Fatigue and lack of energy
- Vaginal Dryness
- Memory problems
So you now know that hormones are chemical messengers that flow throughout the body and regulate the body’s functions. They work behind the scenes, automatically controlling our body temperature, fluid balance and blood pressure, to name just a few of the functions they regulate.
When these hormones are out of balance, a Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is the best solution. It is simply taking hormones to replace or supplement your body’s naturally occurring hormones.
Understanding BHRT empowers women with the knowledge to make the right decisions and successfully manage menopausal symptoms.
Both Males and Females Experience Hormonal Imbalance Issues
Over the last 100 years as we have doubled our life expectancy, the soft tissue glands which create our hormones are being forced to produce them longer than ever.
Our increasingly stressful lives, worsening nutrition and lack of proper fitness combine to result in declining levels of hormones in our bodies. As a result, as men age, their levels of growth hormones and testosterone decline.
Men Hormonal Imbalance Symptoms
For men, after the age of 20, growth hormone levels drop by 14% every 10 years, but imbalances can happen at any age.
Many of the symptoms of hormonal imbalance for men may appear gradually. You may not notice it at first but it will worsen over time. These include:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Hair loss
- Muscle loss or weakness
- Fatigue or lack of energy
- Irritability or Mood swings
- Depression or Anxiety
- Increased body fat
- Gynecomastia (development of breast)
- Memory problems
- Sleep Apnea or trouble sleeping
