Feel Like You Again!
Hormones influence every function and cycle that happens in the body. From your sleep to your mood to your sex drive to energy levels; from your appetite and metabolism; to your bone strength and muscle tone…hormones are constantly at work, acting as the messaging system for your entire body. Hormones are what keep you alive.
When a man or woman’s body is no longer producing adequate levels of these essential chemicals, or when hormones become unbalanced, it’s no wonder that we may start to feel symptoms that make us feel like a stranger in our own body. Both men and women have to combat a number of factors that can be detrimental to hormone health, namely: poor nutrition, lack of sleep, emotional, chemical and physical stress, digestive system disturbances and toxins in our environment.
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is a natural way to rebalance hormones so that we can feel stronger, more energetic, positive, clear headed, and alive! Hormones are so essential to our bodies functioning in an optimal way, that medical experts agree that carefully monitored BHRT helps to achieve a vital balance between the mind and body. Achieving this equilibrium allows men and women to age in a safer, healthier manner.
“After one day on bioidentical estrogen, I felt the veil lift. After three days, the sky was bluer, my brain was no longer fuzzy, my memory was sharper. I was literally singing and had a skip in my step.” – Oprah Winfrey
“I have been on hormones for a year now. My brain no longer feels like cotton candy, and I have the energy and mental capacity to deal with the demands of my job again. I feel great!” – Mr. L (local Waterdown businessman)
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Progesterone, estrogen (estradiol, estriol and testosterone are important sex hormones that can dramatically affect the way a person looks and feels. In both men and women, each of these hormones is produced by the ovaries, tested and the adrenal glands. The lesser known hormones, including Cortisol, DHEA and Thyroid must also be kept in delicate balance.
Depleted hormone levels can be safely and gently replenished through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Using plant-based substances that match the hormones that are naturally produced in our bodies, we can “reset” a person’s body cycles. This means that health declines can be reversed and bothersome symptoms can be alleviated or completely eliminated. When the body is supplemented with the hormone levels it needs, the mind, body and spirit connection is restored, so that the person quickly enjoys more energy and vitality.
