Are your hormones out of balance?

Unbalanced hormones can make you feel like a stranger in your own skin.

Anyone who has been through puberty knows that hormones have a powerful effect on one’s body. Hormones affect many areas of your health, including your mood, your metabolism, and your sexual and reproductive function. If your hormones become unbalanced, whether due to menopause or other factors, you may end up feeling like a stranger in your own skin. However, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a way to restore balance and help you feel like yourself again.

Hormone therapy designed specifically for your body

BHRT is most often prescribed to ease the symptoms of menopause, but it also can be used to treat a variety of conditions that women of all ages may experience, including:

  • Pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS)
  • Irregular menstrual cycle
  • Moodiness
  • Infertility
  • Post-partum depression
  • Weight gain
  • Endometriosis
  • Fibrocystic breasts
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Decreased libido
  • Painful sexual intercourse
  • Vaginal dryness

These conditions affect millions of women. As the number of women seeking hormone-related treatment has grown, so has the mass production of pills, patches and creams by the drug industry. However, each woman’s body is different and has its own unique needs, but commercially manufactured products tend to be “one-size-fits-all,” and do not always account for the differences between individuals.
