BALANCING YOUR HORMONES
GET BACK TO FEELING LIKE YOU AGAIN!  

  • Are you struggling with hormonal issues and wondering what to do?  

  • Do you feel like a stranger in your own skin? 

  • Or maybe you are struggling with specific symptoms and you may wonder if your hormones are to blame?

Chances are, you could be dealing with a hormonal imbalance without even realizing it! 

Our hormones, such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol, and insulin, are powerful!


Hormonal imbalances can wreak havoc on our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. 

Understanding the endocrine system

Years of research in the fields of endocrinology and immunology have helped us better understand our hormones and the aging process.

 

Our hormones are chemical messengers. They travel through our bloodstream and tell our cells what to do.

 

They play critical roles in our bodies and are responsible for: 

  • Controlling our metabolism

  • Reproduction

  • Growth

  • Mood

  • Sexual Health

 

When one hormone is "off" our entire system can be thrown off! 

Here's how we come in. We evaluate how your body is working, then we develop a personalized plan to help restore your health and optimize your well-being. 

By balancing and restoring your hormones to optimal, physiological levels within normal range, evidence suggests that we can effectively lessen your symptoms that are associated with hormonal imbalance and age-related decline.

What can disrupt our hormonal balance? 

  • Physical, mental, or emotional stress- This is a big one as cortisol the "stress hormone" can impact all your other hormones. 

  • Lifestyle factors -Such as lack of sleep and exercise. 

  • Menopause in women and Andropause in men- As we age, we see hormonal fluctuations that disrupt our quality of life and vitality. 

  • Unhealthy eating habits- Especially sugar and processed foods! These increase inflammation and stress the adrenal glands. 

  • Gut health- Imbalances in your gut bugs can disrupt your hormones. 

  • Toxin exposure- Exposures to certain metals can enter the bloodstream via respiration, digestion, or contact with the skin and may adversely affect your hormones. 

  • Inflammation- Can disrupt many hormones including insulin and cortisol. 

  • Chronic diseases and infections- While hormonal imbalances may cause type 1 or type 2 diabetes, or hypothyroidism, these conditions can also lead to other hormonal imbalances. 

  • Genetics- Do you have any hormone issues in your family?  

  • Drugs and alcohol abuse-Affect our liver and influence how our liver breaks down hormones once they have been used by the body.

When To Consider Hormone Replacement Therapy?

With age, and even starting as young as in our 30s, we can start to see a decline in these essential hormones, which can lead to symptoms of hormonal deficiency, or imbalance.

What Are Bioidentical Hormones? 

One of the biggest misconceptions about hormone replacement therapy is that all hormones are made equal. This could not be further from the truth!

  • Bioidentical hormones share the same chemical structure as those naturally made by the human body. They are made from plant sources and start with an ingredient from soy or yam. It is then converted in a lab to estrogen, progesterone, or testosterone to replicate your body's natural hormones. 

  • These differ from synthetic hormones that are used in traditional HRT. Synthetic hormones are manufactured with a different chemical structure than those naturally produced by the human body. These can lead to unwanted side effects. 

Research shows that the absence or decline of our hormones increases our risk of age-related degenerative diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s.
When prescribed correctly, bioidentical hormones promote long-term health in several ways.
