What happens if my hormones are not balanced?
Your body’s hormones control almost every form of your physiological function. They serve as chemical messengers between organ cells in your body and control libido, mood, appetite, immune response, digestion, muscle movement, and nervous system stimulus-response. When your hormones become imbalanced, your overall health could be drastically affected. BHRT is often used to treat women who are premenopausal or menopausal. However, younger people are starting to experience hormone imbalance issues. Using BHRT is a great way to treat a variety of sicknesses, including adrenal fatigue, thyroid disorders, cancer, osteoporosis, and fibromyalgia.
Symptoms of hormone imbalance in men and women:
The most common symptoms associated with a hormone imbalance in women include chronic fatigue, low sex drive, mood swings, hot flashes, and weight gain. The most usual signs for men include fatigue, weight gain, decreased sexual function, and increased anxiety.
What are Bio-Identical hormones exactly?
Bio-identical hormones derived from plant estrogens are chemically identical to the ones we naturally produce in our bodies. Common hormones are estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. These human-made hormones work as a treatment for men and women whose own hormones are low or out of balance. Each dosage is prescribed in individualized, patient-specific doses to balance hormone health.
How is hormone therapy administered?
There are many ways to apply BHRT, with the most common being pellet therapy, creams, pills, and injections.
