Testimonials: Men & Women Discuss Better Living with Balanced Hormones

More and more people are seeking relief from the symptoms of aging they experience: decreased energy, weight gain, stress, night sweats and more. Because of their essential role in the body, even small hormonal imbalances can cause these side effects and more throughout the body.

For both men and women, hormones act as essential communicators between cells in our bodies and are responsible for regulating many of our bodies’ functional systems. However, as we age, our hormones begin to change or become imbalanced. Many people explore hormone optimization as a potential solution.


UNDERSTANDING WOMEN'S HORMONES

Women have a unique set of hormones for navigating life changes such as menstruation, pregnancy and birth, and menopause. Menopause symptoms can be frustrating, and at times, even dangerous. During menopause, the ovaries slow their production of estrogen and progesterone, which has a number of side effects.

DID YOU KNOW...Women have more testosterone in their body than estrogen!

Women are often surprised when we tell them that they need testosterone therapy, mostly because we tend to believe that testosterone is exclusively the male hormone. Decreased levels of testosterone in women has many negative effects on the body including an increased the risk of osteoporosis. At this time in a woman’s life, it is more important than ever to be living a healthy lifestyle and listening to the body’s needs.


PAY ATTENTION TO CHANGES IN MOOD

Many of us are quick to dismiss irritability or mood changes as normal responses to our busy schedules and daily frustrations, and this may be true in many cases. However, if you find yourself experiencing severe ups and downs, debilitating anxiety, or lengthy depressive episodes, you should speak with your provider about your options. Hormone replacement therapy may be one way to ease these symptoms.

ANDROPAUSE: The Male Decline in Hormones

Beginning around the age of 40, men's hormones decline by an average of 1% each year. With the decline of hormones, men often experience symptoms similar to menopause:

  • Reduced muscle

  • Night sweats

  • Poor concentration

  • Sleep problems

  • Loss of hair

  • Fatigue and irritability

  • Memory loss

  • Diminished sex drive

  • Reduced Self-Confidence



WHAT CAUSES HORMONAL IMBALANCE?

Certain lifestyle habits and environmental factors may also play a role in hormonal imbalances.

According to medicalnewstoday.com, hormonal imbalances could be caused in part by:

  • exposure to toxins, pollutants, and endocrine disrupting chemicals, including pesticides and herbicides

  • chronic or extreme stress

  • type 1 and type 2 diabetes

  • hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia

  • underactive or overactive thyroid

  • over- or underproduction of the parathyroid hormone

  • poor diet and nutrition

  • being overweight

  • anorexia

  • phytoestrogens, naturally-occurring plant estrogens found in soy products

  • pituitary tumors

  • high levels of the hormone cortisol

  • low levels of cortisol and aldosterone

  • benign tumors and cysts (fluid-filled sacks) that affect the endocrine glands

  • congenital adrenal hyperplasia (low levels of cortisol)

  • endocrine gland injury

  • severe allergic reactions or infections

  • cancers that involve endocrine glands

  • chemotherapy and radiation therapy

  • iodine deficiency (goiters)
