When it comes to treating hormonal imbalance, there is no uniform approach. Yet, many in the medical field continuously prescribe “band-aid” treatments that may work for some but don’t offer all patients optimal results, nor do they address their full scope of health concerns and symptoms.

Hormonal imbalance can come from various sources, but no matter the cause when left untreated, the consequences can be severe. One approach many practitioners use to help patients find balance is bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).

While BHRT has been around for years and had great results, we have seen a resurgence in its use. Read on for all things BHRT, hormone pellet therapy, and how you can improve your health!

WHAT ARE HORMONES AND WHY DO THEY MATTER?

FUNCTIONAL INTEGRATED APPROACH TO HEALTH

Before diving into hormone replacement therapy, let’s cover the basics of hormones. For something that plays such a significant role in our bodies, many don’t know much about hormones!

Hormones are chemical messengers that travel through our blood and enter cells, tissues, and organs, telling them what to do and when to do it.

From here, they can regulate everything from our emotions to reproduction to our general wellbeing. Essentially, hormones control and coordinate various activities throughout our bodies.

Furthermore, because hormonal imbalance can happen at any time and can cause serious health problems, regular check-ups and monitoring are essential to keep your body in balance.

WHAT ARE THE SIGNS OF A HORMONAL IMBALANCE?

Hormonal imbalance is the result of too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream. As we know, hormones play an important role in our bodies. And, even the smallest change can cause a ripple of side effects throughout the body.

Hormones regulate major processes and bodily functions, like:

  • Metabolism and appetite
  • Heart rate
  • Sleep cycles
  • Reproductive cycles & sexual function
  • General growth and development
  • Mood and stress levels

Both women and men can experience hormonal imbalance, and while symptoms are often unique for each person and can vary greatly. There’s a list of common symptoms experts agree are solid indicators of potential hormonal imbalance.

BOTH WOMEN AND MEN

KEEP IN MIND THAT MANY SYMPTOMS CAN AFFECT ANYONE

The more common causes of hormonal balance tend to produce the following symptoms in both men and women:

UNEXPLAINED WEIGHT GAIN OR WEIGHT LOSS
POOR SLEEP
BRITTLE OR WEAK BONES
IRRITABILITY AND ANXIETY
LONG-TERM FATIGUE WITHOUT REASON
HEADACHES
LOWERED SEX DRIVE
VERY DRY SKIN OR SKIN RASHES
UNEXPLAINED OR EXCESSIVE SWEATING
CHANGES IN SENSITIVITY TO COLD AND HEAT

The list of symptoms goes on and on, which is why it’s important you speak with your trusted medical provider to see if your symptoms are indicative of hormonal imbalance.

IN WOMEN

A FEW MORE SPECIFIC SYMPTOMS OFTEN EXPERIENCED
BY WOMEN INCLUDE:
  • VAGINAL DRYNESS
  • IRREGULAR/HEAVY/PAINFUL
  • BONE LOSS
  • INFERTILITY
  • BREAST TENDERNESS
  • THINNING OR BRITTLE HAIR
  • DEEPENING OF THE VOICE

IN MEN

SOME COMMON RED FLAGS FOR MEN DEALING
WITH HORMONAL ISSUES INCLUDE:
  • CHANGES IN BLOOD PRESSURE
  • ACHES
  • MEMORY LOSS
  • LONGER RECOVERY TIMES FROM INJURIES
  • BRAIN FOG
  • THE INABILITY TO ACHIEVE AND MAINTAIN AN ERECTION

While these symptoms are important to look for, many patients report noticing hormonal
imbalance after feeling “off” for some time.

If you just don’t feel right, pay attention to your body. Keep notes of your symptoms as well as any important lifestyle changes at the time and be sure to bring this information to your consultation.

WHAT ARE THE SIGNS OF A HORMONAL IMBALANCE?

Often, hormonal imbalances are just a part of life and occur naturally as we age. However, some other common culprits of hormonal imbalance can be:

  • Metabolism and appetite
  • Heart rate
  • Sleep cycles
  • Reproductive cycles & sexual function
  • General growth and development
  • Mood and stress levels

Your healthcare provider can walk you through potential causes for your symptoms on your journey to finding an effective treatment.

Because symptoms can impact everyone differently and often mimic other health conditions, you should meet with your medical provider to ensure you receive an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

RESTORING
HORMONE BALANCE

BHRT is a type of hormone therapy that uses hormones that are structurally identical to the substances as they naturally occur in your body. It has been a favorite for both men and women going through the aging process and dealing with hormonal imbalance.

Other hormone therapy options include pills, patches, and creams, but don’t offer an individualized approach for your unique needs and health concerns. BHRT is the natural alternative to synthetic hormone treatments that often don’t provide relief.

We use BHRT through hormone pellet therapy. Hormone pellets have been around for decades but were pushed aside when pills and patches flooded the market.

However, many practitioners are turning back to hormone pellet therapy to offer their patients a more individualized approach to restoring balance and optimizing hormones.

With various options and tons of information out there, it can be a lot of pressure deciding which method is the best for you. Take some time to read through these FAQs to get a better idea of what hormone pellet therapy is all about and how it can help you.

BHRT with pellets is preferred by many patients thanks to its incredible convenience. Rather than remembering to take daily pills or apply cream throughout the day, most patients need only to visit their practitioner 2-3 times per year for pellet implants. With hormone pellets, you can truly restore order to your life!

MAINTAINING HORMONE BALANCE
FOR VITALITY

Apart from navigating daily life with a hefty list of symptoms making things more complicated, keeping your hormones balanced is crucial for your health.

Hormonal imbalance has been linked to various diseases such as Alzheimer’s, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and even certain cancers

Imbalanced hormones don’t always produce symptoms. So, even if you don’t notice any of the warning signs, it’s crucial to have your hormones checked. Your specific set of symptoms along with other factors (age, stress levels, weight, etc.) will be an important influence on when to have your hormones tested.

Likewise, timing will also be a considerable factor on when you’re able to have hormones tested; for example, women under the age of 40 will need to plan hormone testing around their menstrual cycle. For best results and optimal efficiency, it’s always best to plan with your doctor and discuss an appropriate time for hormone testing.

There are some lifestyle changes you can make to naturally encourage hormone balance. So, even if you undergo BHRT with pellet therapy, adding the following methods to your routine can help improve your health.

GETTING SUFFICIENT SLEEP

Skimp on your zzz’s too often, and you may interrupt your circadian rhythm, and its ability to release certain hormones. Prioritize an established sleep schedule and plenty of rest to stay healthy!

REGULAR EXERCISE

Routine exercise can benefit your physical and mental states. Switch up your workouts by implementing strength training, aerobics, and endurance training. Not in the best shape? Start out slow with daily walks around your office building or neighborhood.

ADDRESS YOUR STRESS

We’ve already mentioned how stress can negatively affect your hormones. Take some time to pinpoint areas of stress in your life & work to reduce them. Try taking 10 minutes of quiet for yourself periodically throughout the day as a simple stress management tool.
