Balancing Hormone Levels to Promote Optimal Functioning
As we age, our hormone levels naturally change and fluctuate. Women certainly expect to experience physical and mental changes throughout their lives. From adolescence to post-menopause, it is the purpose of tiny messengers called hormones to usher the maturing female into multiple stages of maturity. But, what happens when this process is interrupted or goes awry due to an imbalance in the hormones testosterone and estrogen? At Apollo Medical Associates, we want to provide you with the information you need to determine if our hormone replacement therapy programs for women are right for you.
Women carry a lesser amount of the hormone testosterone than men, but, its presence contributes to a healthy sex drive and a general sense of wellbeing. It is produced in the adrenal glands and ovaries of women and plays an important role in strengthening muscles and bone while increasing brain functioning. By the time a woman reaches her 30s, her testosterone levels have dropped significantly below optimal levels.
The hormone estrogen is most dominant in women. It is primarily responsible for many of the functions that are unique to women, along with reducing body fat and increasing lean muscle, improving vaginal lubrication, and stimulating the growth of endometrium during menstruation.
Some of the many
signs of an estrogen deficiency include:
If you are experiencing some of these signs of erratic hormone levels, hormone replacement therapy or HRT for women is a viable option to bring your hormones into balance, while eliminating these side effects. Depending on your symptoms and diagnosis, one of our experienced consultants can get you back on the path to wellness and vitality through our programmed treatment of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for women, also known as BHRT.
