Do you have a hormonal imbalance?
Ask yourself these questions below:
- Do you have decreased libido?
- Do you have a lack of energy?
- Do you have a decrease in strength, endurance, or both?
- Have you noticed a decrease in your enjoyment of life?
- Are you sad, grumpy, or irritable?
- Are your erections less strong?
- Have you noticed a recent deterioration in your ability to play sports?
- Are you falling asleep after dinner?
- Has there been deterioration in your work performance?
Answering YES to any of these questions indicates the possibility of having a hormonal imbalance.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), also known as bioidentical hormone therapy or natural hormone therapy, is a poorly-defined term referring to the use of hormones that are identical, on a molecular level, with endogenous hormones in hormone replacement therapy.
Hormones are the substances that control every function of your body. Your hormones should exist in harmony with each other. As we get older, our hormone levels decline. Some hormones decline more than others, leaving the person in hormonal imbalance. When the balance is lost, the hormone deficiencies and excesses can cause chronic symptoms and disorders, and heighten risk for disease. Many age-related diseases can be associated with hormonal imbalance.
A whole host of symptoms may signify hormonal imbalance: fatigue, headaches, weight gain, irritability, PMS, hot flashes and night sweats, infertility, mood swings, sexual dysfunction, depression, prostate problems, fibromyalgia, and thinning hair, as well as many others.
Combining a complete evaluation of your signs and symptoms with your test results, we will develop a logical explanation of how hormone imbalance is specifically affecting your health.
Therefore, after thorough evaluation of your health history we will be able to create a comprehensive program to individualize your treatment. It will include balancing of the deficient hormones in the most appropriate dose via the most effective route, and monitoring signs, symptoms, and hormone levels to fine-tune the therapy.
In recognizing the need for viable alternatives to traditional healthcare, we partner with our patients to develop individualized strategies for preventing and overcoming chronic health issues and restoring a healthful balance. We believe that personalized care and individual attention will restore healthy physiologic, psychological, and structural balances that result in healthy vitality for each of our patients.
