You’ve no doubt heard the expression, “Her hormones were raging” or “Blame it on my hormones.” The truth is, hormones do affect our mood, sleep, alertness, body temperature, and many other areas. As we age, we are more likely to experience the adverse effects of low testosterone, estrogen fluctuations, and progesterone deficiencies. Changes in normal hormone levels contribute to a variety of symptoms and diagnosed conditions such as menopause, perimenopause, andropause, thyroid disorder or adrenal fatigue. Are you or a loved one experiencing any of these? If so, you’re in the right place. Seeking expert treatment from a hormone specialist at Total Health and Rejuvenation will determine the cause of hormonal imbalance symptoms and correct health issues at the root cause through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
Hormones are a regulatory substance formed in an organism and transported in tissue fluids, like blood. Think of hormones as “chemical messengers.” Hormones are designed to stimulate certain tissues or organs into a particular action.
Conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) incorporates synthetic hormones into hormone treatment plans. Synthetic hormone replacement therapy can come with a dangerous price tag. These hormones are man-made and chemically-based. Conventional hormone replacement therapy is a one-size-fits-all regimen and has been linked to the development of breast cancer and heart disease.
On the bright side, there are bioidentical hormones. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is the solution for restoring natural hormone levels to their optimal function. Bioidentical hormones are natural hormones, sourced from plant and yam extracts to be molecularly identical to the hormone structure produced in the human body. Bioidentical hormones are custom-compounded for each individual patient’s needs and pose no known health risks. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can alleviate symptoms such as:
Low testosterone in men is a very common hormone imbalance and one that many men experience throughout their lifetime. Low testosterone in men can present itself in a visible manner affecting libido, energy, and weight management. This phase of life is referred to as andropause, also commonly known as “male menopause.” Nevertheless, since these levels fluctuate, low testosterone levels in men can easily be corrected with the use of bioidentical hormones. By optimizing natural hormone levels with a comprehensive hormone treatment plan.
Hormones are a delicate balance, and women face some hormonal fluctuations in their lifespan including menstruation, pregnancy, childbirth, perimenopause and menopause. All of these different phases can affect hormone balance. As early as age 30 women can start to monitor their hormones to establish a healthy baseline and hormone harmony. Uncomfortable thyroid symptoms in women can appear with age, as well as symptoms related to high testosterone in women and even low testosterone in women. The symptoms present themselves in the form of fatigue, hot flashes, night sweats, lack of libido, and even forgetfulness. A hormone treatment can help to balance and maintain a healthy with the use of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy starts with comprehensive hormone testing, consisting of blood, and urine testing to assess current hormone levels and other critical biomarkers. This advanced testing allows us to hone in on your specific condition and needs, to then formulate the ideal therapeutic hormone treatment plan for you that is determined by the hormone deficiency. The hormone specialists at Total Health and Rejuvenation will utilize these results, plus a carefully reviewed personal medical history, symptoms, and current lifestyle habits to discuss during an individual consultation to find the root cause of each patient’s health issues.
