Beyond Sex – How Hormone Replacement Therapy Can Enhance Your Life
From a young age we are taught that hormones control our sex drive and that’s about it. But did you know that our hormones do much much more?
Hormones are the messengers in our body that travel through our bloodstream to deliver various messages to our organs and tissues.
What this means is that they are an essential part of how our body functions and do a lot more than regulate our sex drive.
Along with sexual function and fertility, the main functions of our hormones include:
- Growth and development
- Metabolism regulation
- Mood and stress management
- Body temperature regulation
- Sleep cycle and sleep quality
When we feel off or our body feels like it’s out of balance, we don’t immediately jump to hormone problems as the issue…but maybe we should?
As we said, hormones are essential to regulating and balancing our body functions far beyond our sexual needs.
In this article we are going to discuss possible symptoms of hormone imbalance and the benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy!
Symptoms Of Hormonal Imbalance
Having trouble sleeping? Experiencing thinning or loss of hair? How about your thinking and focus? Is it cloudy? Do you have trouble concentrating?
All of those are symptoms of hormonal imbalance! Would you ever think to connect them?
Along with sex drive implications here are some other lesser known symptoms related to hormonal imbalance:
- Adult acne
- Unexplained weight gain or loss
- Dry skin
- Sudden shifts in mood (depression, anger, etc.)
- Brittle bones
- Blurred vision
- Exhaustion and fatigue
- Increased sensitivity to hot and cold
- Muscle fatigue
- Memory loss
- Insomnia or sleep issues
- Inability to regulate body temperature (hot flashes)
- Unsatisfied thirst
These symptoms happen mainly to women during menopause, but don’t be fooled, it can happen to anyone at any age. Our bodies are all unique, so whether you are a 20 year old male or 55 year old woman, you can experience hormonal imbalance!
Other reasons your hormones may be off balance can be due to health issues including:
- Chronic stress
- Hypo- or Hyperthyroidism
- Poor diet
- Cushing syndrome
- Exposure to toxins or other endocrine disruptors
How Hormone Replacement Therapy Can Give You Your Life Back
If you are struggling with any or multiple of the above symptoms it’s time to reach out to your medical provider (like us!) to discuss Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT).
Hormone Replacement Therapy focuses on supporting your naturally occurring hormones or completely replacing the ones that are no longer being produced within the body.
When you come in for your initial consultation, testing and blood work will be done to analyze the hormone imbalance issues you are experiencing.
Once we identify the hormones that are low or no longer producing, we can start introducing HRT into your body.
We will go over your HRT options to give you the best treatment available for your body’s needs.
Over time, you’ll start seeing an improvement in your daily life and overall well being as the HRT begins to work its way throughout the body.
