Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance in Women
Hormone imbalance is a common issue in women as they age. A female hormone imbalance can happen from lack of proper nutrition, daily stresses of life, or an underlying medical problem. Menopausal hormone therapy is the most common reason women seek out BHRT, as it alleviates the symptoms. There are many benefits of hormone replacement therapy outside of menopause symptom treatment, including improved sleep, heightened energy, better appetite, and enhanced overall mood!
At AgeWellMD, we know how detrimental hormone imbalance can be to you and your body. Often with traditional medicine, the root cause of a hormone imbalance is overlooked and only treat the symptoms. At AgeWellMD, we take a comprehensive approach to healing you. If you are experiencing the symptoms below, don’t wait any longer, come in and let us start you on your Age Well Journey!
Benefits of hormone replacement therapy
About Hormone Pellet Therapy
The pellet method is a form of BHRT that involves a small pellet made of crystallized hormones being inserted subcutaneously into your buttocks’ fatty part. The pill delivers a constant and steady release of hormones and can last up to three months before needing replacement! The insertion takes less than an hour and requires no upkeep until replacement. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy using the pellet method has changed how we treat a hormone imbalance in women.
In the past, the symptoms most women experienced were chalked up to aging or, even worse, brushed off as part of life; however, we know better! You no longer need to suffer through your symptoms of hormone imbalance silently. Dr. Engsberg conducts a comprehensive medical evaluation to find the root cause of symptoms. Treating your hormone imbalance through pellet therapy and supplements is an investment in your well-being. Natural hormone replacement therapy has helped improve the quality of our lives and how long we live them. Why wait when the remedy is as simple as replacing missing hormones?
Estrogen Replacement for Women
Estrogen is a woman’s most important hormone. When estrogen is out of balance, patients are at an increased risk for premature ovary failure, osteoporosis, and heart disease. Colon cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, tooth loss, impaired vision, Parkinson’s disease, and diabetes are also typical. The longer a woman is without the protection of her estrogen, the higher the risk for serious health consequences of these conditions.
There are estrogen receptors in a variety of organs throughout the body and brain. That’s why hormonal imbalance produces different symptoms such as loss of skin elasticity, bone shrinkage, mood, and cognitive decline.
On the other hand, when estrogen levels rise as they do in the first week of menses. Their overall effect is to increase the amount of serotonin available in the spaces between the brain’s nerve cells. That improves mood. Within the brain, estrogen may act as a natural antidepressant and mood stabilizer. It is therefore essential that a woman suffering from premature ovary failure or surgical menopause receive treatment from an HRT physician. AgeWellMD understands the many ramifications of the disease and is willing to meet her endocrine and emotional needs.
Testosterone Replacement for Women
Testosterone hormone therapy gives a woman her mental clarity, libido, and muscle tone and mass. When this hormone is at low levels, women often complain of mental confusion, weight gain, and weak muscle growth even with regular exercise.
The effect of hormone deficiency on the brain, muscle, bone, heart, and metabolism can be significant without hormone replacement therapy for women and dangerous to long-term health. The brain needs consistent amounts of testosterone in balance with estrogen to produce serotonin, which supports emotional balance. When lacking these hormones, a woman will experience emotional instability that often results in increased anxiety, irritability, sleep disturbances, anger, sadness, and depression.
The musculoskeletal system is also adversely affected by the loss of testosterone. Testosterone imbalance can lead to muscle atrophy, osteopenia, osteoporosis, and pain in the muscles and joints.
I have struggled with Endometriosis for over 6 years now. Meeting Kathy and Dr. Engsberg has been a true blessing and care I receive has given me my quality of life back. I have found my life balance again mentally, emotionally, and physically.
Thank you so much AgeWellMD!
I can’t say enough good about AgeWell. Kathy called me within an hour after I submitted my new patient form–on a Sunday! She was reassuring that they could help, and she was right. Dr. Engsberg spent hours with my husband and me explaining our blood work and how she could help. This is the first time I’ve had a physician approach my health as a whole person. Before beginning AgeWell’s bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, I was sleep-deprived, emotional, and unable to focus on my work. I’m sleeping again and have regained my focus. I have the energy to work out more regularly and feel myself getting stronger. I feel grounded and happy. My husband is also sleeping and feeling much better, and we enjoy each other more than ever. Thank you to Kathy and Dr. Engsberg!
I have personally known Dr. Hope for approximately 20 years. I can honestly attest that she is an extremely brilliant physician. Her intense passion to be the best medical advisor possible coupled with her integrity, honesty and personal detailed attention to each clients medical needs are exemplary ! I would trust any of my loved ones in her absolute care. In addition, her Practice Manager and Partner, Kathy Vieth, is absolutely brilliant. The ‘star’ of this dynamic trio is Wil, their Chief Stress Officer, a beautiful Harlequin Great Dane. He will put you at ease the minute you arrive. Dr. Hope has handled my personal health and wellness aging needs for years. In my opinion, there is no one more qualified who I would trust to place my health in their hands, than Dr. Hope Engberg.
