Hormones are chemical messengers in your body that control a number of bodily functions, including your sexual prowess, metabolism, and energy levels.
As you get older, your body often slows down hormone production, causing the symptoms naturally associated with aging. These symptoms aren’t inevitable, and you don’t have to live with them. Hormone replacement therapy can help.
Menopause, whether it’s caused by aging, drug therapy (as for cancer), or surgery, results in a number of unpleasant symptoms as estrogen levels drop. These symptoms include:
These symptoms can interfere with your quality of life.
Men can also experience the effects of decreasing sex hormones, specifically testosterone. At any age, but especially as you get older, the effects of low testosterone can be felt as:
It may be normal to experience a reduction in testosterone levels as you age, but sudden drops are uncomfortable and unpleasant. Low testosterone seriously affects your overall quality of life.
The team at Inland Wellness & Vitality is experienced in identifying your hormone balance. They carefully review your medical history, symptoms, nutritional factors, and exercise habits to find clues to the causes of your issues. In many cases, your symptoms of aging have reversible causes.
You may benefit from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to restore your hormone levels and enhance your quality of life. BHRT may be offered as oral, injectable, pellet, or topical therapies.
Bioidentical hormones are completely natural hormones that exactly match the biochemical makeup of your body’s hormones.
They’re derived from plant ingredients and mixed to match your needs. Your body absorbs and uses these hormones as if you produced them yourself, so you feel better, look better, and perform better.
