WOMEN’S HORMONE THERAPY
Home | WOMEN’S HORMONE THERAPY
When it comes to women’s hormone therapy, it is our mission to optimize your health by restoring your “hormonal balance” as the foundation to an integrated health and wellness plan, customized for you.
As women age, they will experience gradual and sometimes dramatic changes in their hormonal balance. As women enter the peri-menopause phase of their lives, approximately 10-15 years prior to the onset of menopause, their hormonal balance will gradually decline during this time.
RenewFX Health and Wellness physicians address this condition properly by conducting a comprehensive evaluation to determine an appropriate, customized, bioidentical hormone therapy treatment plan for you.
You may need bioidentical hormone therapy from RenewFX if you suffer from:
- weight gain
- hot flashes
- night sweats
- loss of libido
- vaginal dryness
- brain fog
During menstruation, your symptoms may include mood swings, headaches, fluid retention, irregular cycles, heavy or irregular periods, PMS and breast tenderness.
Women’s Hormone Therapy | Hormonal Balance
Women have three different foundational hormones. Progesterone, Testosterone and three types of Estrogen. Hormonal balance of these hormones is the key to addressing symptoms and optimizing women’s health.
The key to customizing a women’s wellness program for you is to identify your current hormone levels, review your current symptoms, examine your overall body chemistry and properly evaluate your medical history. Upon completion of this process; a customized, integrated women’s hormone therapy program is designed and implemented as a component to your health and wellness roadmap.
Did you know that women can accumulate additional estrogen from their diet? Chemical sprays on food are absorbed into our bodies. Protein sources that we ingest have often been given steroids which are also absorbed into our bodies. Combine diet influences along with the gradual onset of peri-menopause, and it is no wonder why hormonal imbalance and estrogen dominance are so prevalent in today’s female population at earlier ages.
Signs and Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance in Women
Signs and symptoms of hormonal imbalance for women include lack of energy, fatigue, night sweats, headaches, weight gain, loss of sex drive, insomnia, sleep disorders, osteoporosis, brain fog, general drive, hot flashes, endometriosis and vaginal dryness. These are often caused by a decline in your hormones leading to hormonal imbalance. In addition, women often complain of irregular menstrual cycles, heavier periods with cramping, premenstrual breast tenderness, fluid retention, mood swings and headaches when they have hormonal imbalance.
Progesterone | The Key Hormone
Progesterone plays a vital role in women’s health. Progesterone strengthens the bones, protects the breasts, calms the nerves, promotes restful sleep and decreases fluid retention.
As women age, the gradual aging process causes a decline in progesterone production. As a result, women gradually will develop progesterone deficiency, which is closely linked to estrogen dominance. Progesterone provides an essential balance to the estrogen hormones. Women who have had a total hysterectomy will benefit from progesterone supplementation.
Peri-menopause and Menopause
Peri-menopausal and menopausal women may also suffer from estrogen deficiency. In such cases, restoring hormonal balance with bioidentical estrogen and progesterone will successfully address such imbalances.
Thyroid and Adrenal Function
It is well known that thyroid and adrenal function will also decline as women age. Fatigue, weight gain, increased body fat, energy loss, depression, brain fog, sleep disorders, joint pain, muscle pain, diminished sex drive, hair loss, cold sensitivity, recurring infections and elevated cholesterol are some of the classic symptoms of hypothyroidism or Low Thyroid.
Has it become increasingly difficult to deal with stress? You may have adrenal fatigue. The adrenal glands secrete hormones that enable your body to handle stress caused by hormonal imbalance, allergies, low thyroid, injuries or the daily challenges of everyday life.
The chronic stress that women are exposed to on a daily basis in today’s challenging and fast paced society may also contribute to adrenal fatigue. As your adrenal glands become overloaded and fatigued, your natural cortisol levels will gradually drop and in some cases, significantly.
Adrenal Glands and Cortisol
Cortisol, when balanced in proper range, serves to bolster your immune system, thereby protecting your body from infection and chronic inflammation. Cortisol also supports the assimilation of thyroid and sex hormones at a cellular level. When your cortisol is too low, it can often contribute to lowered metabolism and a weakened immune system.
Adrenal Glands and Dihydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)
The Adrenal glands produce DHEA. This hormone enhances brain function, muscle tone and libido (sex drive).
Adrenal Glands and Pregnenolone
Often overlooked, Pregnenolone is the foundational adrenal hormone that exerts a powerful effect upon the brain, enhancing memory. Pregnenolone also amplifies and reinforces general hormonal production in the body.
As you can see, all of these hormones may and often do decline with age. With proper evaluation and testing, the RenewFX physician team can accurately determine hormonal imbalances and precisely construct a customized bioidentical hormone therapy program for you.
