Nutrition and exercise are two of the most fundamental building blocks of wellness, but hormones also play a very critical role in the balance and maintenance of health.
Hormones are chemicals produced by our bodies and transported in our bloodstream to tissues and organs. Different hormones control and regulate specific cells and organs and work slowly over time affecting many different processes such as growth, development, metabolism and mood.
Unbalanced hormones, often times caused by menopause or chronic stress confuse and disrupt the natural ebb and flow of such processes. When hormones rise and fall out of balance it makes us feel angry, emotional, tired, moody or even embarrassed! And overtime it can develop into more chronic symptoms including:
- sleep disorders
- mood swings, anxiety and depression
- fatigue and lack of motivation
- persistent acne
- brain fog
- hot flashes and night sweats
- loss of muscle mass
- low libido
- headaches and migraines
- breast changes
- vaginal dryness
- heavy or unpredictable monthly cycles
- inability to become pregnant
We know the frustration and loss of quality-of-life hormone problems create but it doesn’t have to be accepted as a natural part of aging like so many people suffer through! We can help! The amount of praise and appreciation for the balance hormone therapy has restored to our patients’ daily lives is overwhelming.
We realize not every patient knows or has the ability or means to consult with providers specializing in hormone replacement therapy and sometimes you simply don’t want to add another doctor to your already busy schedule. This is where we come in. Our pharmacists trained and educated in bio-identical hormone therapy work closely with all types of doctors, recommending appropriate bloodwork to be drawn along with analysis of a thorough and personal assessment. After a one on one consultation with you addressing labs and assessments, a recommendation for hormone replacement therapy is made to your prescribing physician.
