Are you feeling a little off? Is your energy level plummeting despite getting enough sleep? Are you no longer in the mood? It may be hormonal. Your hormones serve as chemical messengers in your body telling your tissues, organs, and body systems what to do, and any imbalance can send you and your body into a tizzy.
We may be able to help you. At Integrative Medica, we offer bioidentical hormone therapy to help restore hormonal balance naturally and help you feel more like your calm, confident, productive self.
Your hormones are made in the glands of your endocrine system and they travel through your blood to all the various systems in your body, relaying important functional messages.
Your hormones play an essential role in many body functions, including:
When your hormones are in harmony, all is well in your world. But an increase or decrease in your hormone levels can affect you both physically and emotionally. Hormones that may be affected include estrogen, testosterone, thyroid, cortisol, and melatonin.
Hormones aren’t just a problem for women. Men can also experience changes in hormone levels that affect health and mood. And while it’s normal for hormone levels to decrease as you get older, you can experience an imbalance at any time and at any age.
We can determine if your hormones are responsible for how you feel after an examination, a review of your symptoms, and a highly sensitive hormone test.
At Integrative Medica, we use bioidentical hormones to optimize your hormone levels because they’re a natural form of hormone replacement. Bioidentical hormones are derived from food sources, including soybeans and yams, and modified to act just like the hormones that naturally circulate in your body so you get the relief you need without any side effects.
With our bioidentical hormone therapy, we can provide your replacement as a cream or as a pellet that’s custom-designed to meet your unique hormonal needs. The pellet form of the hormone, which we insert under your skin, provides your body with a consistent dose of hormones so your levels stay in balance for as long as six months. We monitor you closely and replace your pellet when needed based on your hormone levels and symptoms.
Hormone imbalance can affect every aspect of your life. Without energy, you may struggle to meet deadlines at work and your low libido may strain your intimate relationships. Restoring hormone balance with bioidentical hormone therapy relieves your symptoms to improve performance and relationships.
Optimizing hormone levels may also reduce your risk of developing chronic diseases such as heart disease and osteoporosis, and offer anti-aging benefits by preventing or reversing degenerative conditions such as vaginal dryness and loss of lean muscle.
Bioidentical hormone therapy is safe, natural, and designed specifically for you. To learn more, call Integrative Medica today, or schedule an appointment online.
