New Solutions to Manage and Support Hormones–Bring YOUR Hormones Back Into Balance Naturally!!

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy In Murfreesboro TN

When we speak of hormones, patients commonly believe this is a subject matter related to menopausal women only. What is often not realized is that hormonal changes affect everyone from birth to death.  Some common conditions related to hormonal imbalances are low libido, foggy thinking, mood swings, muscle weakness, PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), hair growth, painful intercourse, adrenal fatigue and others.

For women, the most pronounced changes come in their 40s and 50s, but can been seen as early as their late-20s. Many women are experiencing hormonal symptoms earlier and earlier, which has much to do not only with lifestyle and diet, but also toxins and xeno-estrogens (synthetic chemicals that act as estrogen in our bodies) that we are exposed to every day.

Balancing hormones does not mean the same thing for every patient

For some, prescription Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement is the right option. For others, balancing hormones begins with supplements and nutraceuticals to get the gut, liver & endocrine system working better. Dietary changes and exercise can also play an important role. All patients are unique and their problems are specific to them. Only by assessing each individual patient’s health history and symptoms can a proper treatment plan be created to get the body back into balance.

Common Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalances

  • Persistent weight gain

    Many women have underlying hormonal imbalances that make it difficult to maintain a healthy weight. Without question, lifestyle, diet and physical activity are necessary components to maintaining a healthy weight. However, unaddressed or emerging insulin resistance or pre-diabetes is one of the most common hormonal imbalances. Small changes in diet can make tremendous impacts in losing weight.

  • Belly fat and loss of muscle mass

    When you are under physical, chemical or mental stress, hormones get out of balance. The underproduction of some hormones and the overproduction of others make your body store fat for future use. This increase in belly fat is clue to adrenal fatigue and potentially increased cortisol levels.

  • Low libido

    One of the most noticeable symptoms of hormonal imbalance is a decrease in sex drive, which starts with disturbed sleep. Without quality sleep our sex hormone production can diminish.

  • Fatigue

    Probably the most common complaint from patients suffering from hormone imbalances, fatigue can become debilitating and life altering. Not feeling rested after a night’s sleep, mid-afternoon crashes or extreme exhaustion after a day’s work are all symptoms of imbalanced hormones.

  • Anxiety, irritability and depression

    Anxiety and depression are clues that you have an endocrine imbalance. You may have toxicity, be overworked or stressed, and most likely, you aren’t nourishing your body properly. This is NOT the time for pharmaceuticals. Getting these imbalances fixed can be very easy.

  • Insomnia and poor sleep patterns

    Poor sleep starts the cycle of physical stress and increases cortisol levels, which directly causes many hormonal imbalances.

  • Excessive Sweating (Day or Night)

    Night sweats and hot flashes, for many women, are the first uncomfortable sign that something is changing. While this is not a sign to start hormone replacement therapy, it is a time to start paying attention. There can be other signs that indicate imbalances.

  • Digestion problems

    While not commonly thought to relate to the endocrine system, gas, bloating and slow digestion are common hormonal problems. These may be associated with eating bad foods, not chewing your food thoroughly or eating too much. When you don’t have optimal digestion, your body is starving because of poor nutrient extraction.

  • Cravings

    After eating way more than you should have, or having gone through half a bottle of wine, do you look back and ask yourself why? Common causes of cravings and excess eating are adrenal fatigue, insulin resistance, and other hormonal imbalances.
