As we age, hormone imbalances affect our physical and emotional health and, hence, our quality of life. Effective hormone replacement therapy with bio-identical hormones is a safe and natural option that may resolve the root cause of your symptoms, instead of treating symptoms in isolation.
Hypothyroidism is a condition caused by an underactive thyroid gland that is not producing enough thyroid hormone to keep the body running optimally, which is another hormone affected by the aging process. Muscle cramps, slow wound healing, poor sleep patterns, hair loss, depression and headaches are all signs of hypothyroidism.
Millions of American men suffer from some degree of testosterone imbalance or deficiency, and surprisingly, most of these men are unaware of their condition. Low testosterone symptoms are often mistaken for signs of stress or considered a part of the natural aging process, and while this is true, no man has to live with them or accept them as normal.
Bioidentical hormones are derived from plants, such as yams or soybeans, and processed to be identical to those found in humans, so our bodies cannot detect the difference, allowing them to bind to the respective receptors just like our own natural hormones. As a result, bioidentical hormones behave in the body exactly as natural hormones, creating the same biological effects.
