It is always our goal to make the New Year the best one yet. Undoubtedly, we do not have complete control over our surroundings and others – but we can help to keep our minds and bodies happier and healthier through our habits and with the assistance of certain treatments. Did you have a rough year due to your physical or mental health? Some of your daily struggle may stem from a hormonal imbalance. It’s time to change the way you feel overall for the better.
There are many side effects to having hormonal imbalances in the body. For women, that can mean everything from skin sagging to moodiness and depression to urinary leakage. Certain symptoms such as sleep disturbances and hot flashes are commonly linked to menopause, while other symptoms such as decreased libido and genital dryness may simply point back to decreased production of testosterone. (Yes, women also have testosterone.) Everyone is different; therefore, there hormonal fluctuations that contribute to the signs and symptoms.
Fatigue, decreased muscle mass, and breast enlargement are some of the potential male signs pointing towards a hormonal imbalance. Over time and with age, the body changes, as do hormone levels. For men, testosterone can decrease modestly or significantly with each passing year. Erectile dysfunction is not uncommon.It is possible for both men and women to experience the same symptoms regarding a hormonal imbalance. For example, both men and women may experience a decreased libido. Another issue with these symptoms is how it can affect your self-confidence. Thankfully, there are solutions!
Considering hormone therapy? Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) has been around for decades but continues to stay up on the cutting edge. While other options like gels, creams, and patches have worked for some, BHRT is the most natural treatment to balance debilitating hormone fluctuations in men and women. If you are a good candidate for BHRT, your daily life can positively change without shifting your regular routine. The pellets disperse through the body like it would naturally during fluctuations.
For men and women, the pellets are gently inserted into the fatty tissue (usually the upper outer buttock). Local anesthesia is used first to make for a painless procedure. This quick 10 minute treatment doesn’t even require stitches – medical tape closes the skin where the pellets entered. Over the next 4-6 months, the hormones in the pellets are absorbed.
