Are Your Hormones Making You Crazy?
Are you struggling with symptoms of stubborn weight loss, mood issues, hot flashes, dry skin, vaginal dryness, hair loss and exhaustion?
When your hormones are out of balance you feel miserable. A relentless struggle to get more energy makes you feel like you’re experiencing Ground Hog Day…on replay.
When women’s hormones are balanced, they feel good in their body and life looks sunny. And when women are vibrant, they naturally impact the world around them in a positive way—they light up the room.
Usually, hormone imbalances begin to appear around a woman’s late thirties or forties, but each woman is different. Some women may experience hormonal changes earlier due to hysterectomy, diet or high stress. When hormone imbalances occur, they usually occur during perimenopause and menopause. Menopause hormone therapy can improve health and wellness during this transitional phase in a woman’s life.
Perimenopause is the beginning stage of gradual hormone decline. It starts when the ovaries are not producing adequate amounts of estrogen and progesterone. Over the next three to seven years after this phase begins, women can experience symptoms which can include weight gain, headaches, irregular periods, severe PMS, migraines, heavier periods, amenorrhea, and anovulation.
Menopause causes women to have a more dramatic decline in hormone production. The body stops relying on the ovaries for the bulk amount of hormone production and begins to depend more on the adrenal gland hormone stores to secure hormones. At this stage in life most women have more challenges because their adrenal glands are usually not functioning at optimal levels so the ability to regulate hormones is very difficult. Women in menopause can experience symptoms such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, insomnia, osteoporosis, fatigue, weight loss resistance, night sweats, low libido, depression, moodiness, and a lack of motivation.
How Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Can Help
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy helps women by addressing the deficiencies in ESTROGEN and PROGESTERONE which are the two primary female sex hormones. ESTROGEN carries out numerous functions in the female body, and it works to balance body temperature, strengthen bones, manage weight and maintain elasticity in skin. It also helps to detoxify the brain and improve memory. PROGESTERONE maintains the menstrual cycle and reproductive functions, and it also helps to balance estrogen. When progesterone is deficient, a woman may have an increased risk for uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and breast or uterine cancer.
