There is a lot of confusion and an overload of information and misinformation about hormones. Most people frankly just don’t know what to do or even what hormones really are and what they do. People are overwhelmed with misinformation.
Every one of you requires hormones in order to digest properly, sleep well, feel mentally balanced, have your metabolism work properly, and overall have energy and vitality. Hormones are like the conductor telling the cell’s of your body what to do. Your cells require a healthy hormone balance in order to function properly.
There are a lot of different hormones in your body but when we talk about hormone balancing we are typically talking about thyroid, estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisol,and growth hormone
Do you need hormone balancing? YES!!!
We live in a toxic world that disrupts the hormonal balance. Stress and the multitude of chemicals that we are exposed to on a daily basis cause a hormonal imbalance. You are exposed to hormone disruptors from the time that you are conceived and then enter this world. Each generation is being exposed to an increased number of these disruptors. As a result, Hormonal imbalances can start as early as your teens in today’s toxic world. You are never too young or too old to have your hormones evaluated. The hormonal decline can occur gradually and people may feel that they are normal. Many symptoms have become normal in our society but we are not meant to have them. As a result of a hormonal imbalance, people complain of fatigue, an inability to burn fat, brain fog, dry skin or hair, a lack of focus, decreased ability to remember, an increase in aches and pains, an inability to gain muscle, depressed mood, irritability, anxiety, poor sleep, etc. The list goes on and on. Essentially the person does not feel like he or she used to. Hormonal imbalances make it extremely difficult to burn fat or have a healthy body composition.
In our office, we order blood work and review the results with you and go over an extensive questionnaire that you fill out before your consultation. We can then decide at your consultation which hormones need rebalancing and create a customized treatment plan. We replace deficient hormones with bio identical hormones—hormones that are biologically identical to what your body naturally makes. Treating with bio identical hormones has been shown to have no effect on increasing your risk of cancer and has been shown to reduce the risk of osteoporosis, dementia, and heart disease among other things. Hormone rebalancing with bio identical hormones will help you to regain a healthy metabolism and mind set. When your hormones are balanced you have the energy and motivation to do the other things required for you to have a healthy body.
