Balanced Hormones are Necessary for Good Health and Disease Prevention
Maintaining your hormone balance isn’t a luxury. It is a critical factor in staying healthy.
Hormones help regulate your body from head to toe — from brain function to the skin on your little toes. Carried through your body via the bloodstream, these chemical messengers tell your organs and body tissues when and how to do their job.
When hormones run low or get out of balance, people can experience a variety of symptoms, such as mood issues, sexual dysfunction, body aches, and even acne. Hormones also play a part in regulating our immune system and help protect us from diseases and conditions like brittle bones and heart disease.
After age 30, most of us experience a decline in hormone production that averages between 3% and 10% a year.
As we continue to age, the effect of this decrease in hormones becomes more profound. In short, as our bodies decrease the production of these hormones, our quality of life becomes greatly affected.
For both men and women, hormonal balance is necessary for good health and disease prevention. While there are several protocols used by the medical profession to address this issue, the introduction of bioidentical hormones using pellet therapy has had good results.
Symptoms of hormone decline frequently include:
- Reduced mental clarity
- Weight gain
- Loss of muscle mass
- Declining libido
- Difficulty sleeping,
- Muscle and joint pain
- And other mood changes
Get Your Hormones Back on Track with Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormone replacement therapy, or HRT, can be used to address hormone issues. For women, HRT is used to lessen menopause symptoms by replacing the female sex hormones (estrogen and progesterone). Men also benefit from hormone optimization, especially concerning the loss of muscle mass and sexual dysfunction.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). BHRT is similar to traditional hormone replacement, except the hormones are made from plant estrogens. Because they are chemically identical to the hormones in the human body, they are called bioidentical (or bio-identical) hormones.
