There is a lot of confusion when it comes to the effects that hormones have on our development. Some people mistakenly believe that hormones are only connected to sexual function or growth during puberty. The truth is that hormones serve as guides that affect every single aspect of our lives. When your body’s hormone production is off, either by producing too much of a particular hormone or not producing enough, the effects can be devastating. Thankfully, hormone replacement therapy exists.
A lot of the effects that come from having a hormone imbalance can be ignored. Many people think that they are just a normal part of growing older. As they get older and notice that they have less energy, they have less mental clarity, it’s hard for them to put on muscle, and it is harder for them to lose weight, they just chalk it up to getting older. While it is true that as a person gets older, their body does slow down, it should not let you feel down or deprived in any way.
If you feel like some of the symptoms you have might be signs of a hormonal imbalance, it would be good for you to talk to our experts about hormone replacement therapy. The only way that you can know for sure if your hormones are out of whack is by consulting a professional and getting the right testing done. With these tests, we can evaluate different hormone levels and then work with you in determining if hormone replacement therapy is right for you.
These days, the vast majority of hormone replacement therapy treatments revolve around bioidentical hormones. These are hormones that have been created to have the same molecular compound as the hormones your body naturally produces.
