Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy

NATURAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY

 

Hormones are the dispatchers that coordinate the functions of our bodies. We could not live without them. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is used to balance hormone levels. Hormones travel throughout the body to specific areas in the tissue and organs that assist in growth and development, metabolism, sexual function, and mood. Women produce progesterone, testosterone and 3 types of estrogen (estrone, estradiol, and estriol) in the ovaries and they are a woman’s primary natural hormones. The dominant hormone in men is testosterone, which is produced in the testes.

MEN’S HORMONES

Testosterone levels in men tend to start declining in the late 20’s and by the time they hit 40, their testosterone has decreased by more than half. Hormone replacement therapy is often used to boost testosterone levels.

Symptoms of Low Testosterone may include:

  • Low libido
  • Loss of muscle mass and tone
  • Fatty, enlarged breasts (gynecomastia)
  • Decline in Sexual Performance
  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain around mid-section
  • Depression
  • Sleeping Disorders
  • Low self-confidence or well-being

As with men, women’s hormones decline as they age. Women typically have changes in their hormone levels throughout different stages in their lives (puberty, stopping a birth control pill, hysterectomy or menopause). Restoring hormone balance can help restore your quality of life and sense of well-being.

Symptoms of Female Hormone Deficiency may include:

  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Bloating or weight gain
  • Anxiety
  • Low libido
  • Brain fog
  • Osteoporosis
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Migraines

HORMONE BALANCE – KEY TO HEALTH

Compounded hormone replacement therapy is an effective, well-tolerated treatment for hormone deficiency. Natural hormone replacement has the ability to help with symptoms associated with imbalanced hormones including loss of muscle, fatigue, mental fog, osteoporosis, night sweats, difficulty sleeping, anxiety, and decreased libido. Higher levels of our natural hormones can also have a protective benefit on bone density, heart health, and increased immune functions.
