These are all symptoms of hormone imbalance.
Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is the first step to balance you. All too often when people try to find help from primary care practitioners, they only leave with band-aided with pseudo solutions that read like a laundry list of antidepressants, sleeping or anti-anxiety pills, all kinds of medications. Many of those drugs have side effects that are as bad as the symptoms themselves, weight gain, dependency, “zombie like” state, decreased sex drive, and on and on. What they don’t get is any solution that addresses the root problem. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is not experimental.
Pellet therapy has been being performed in the US since 1938 and has been studied by medical professionals for decades. Multiple studies have shown this therapy to reduce fatigue, improve sleep, improve libido in women and sexual performance in men, decrease muscle loss, and reduce body fat. It has also been proven to reduce irritability, anxiety and depression.
When we think of women we don’t often think of testosterone but numerous medical studies show definitively that it can protect you from breast cancer! Breast cancer tissue can have both estrogen and insulin receptors, bio-identical testosterone has been shown to decrease those receptors ability to process and decrease overall insulin levels. Belly fat that you can’t seem to get rid of? Low testosterone levels increase cortisol and insulin levels which increases fat and the risk of type 2 diabetes.
Low T (low testosterone levels) in men is not just about decreases sex drive! Low T has serious medical implications too. Medical studies in men with low testosterone levels show a 3 times higher risk of Alzheimer’s Disease. Higher levels of testosterone in men over 55 show a significant reduction in coronary artery disease and heart attacks. Both men and women see bone density increases of up to 8.3% per year which aids in preventing and even reversing osteoporosis with regulated natural hormone levels. Restoring your natural hormone balance is shown to protect your heart, bones, brain, and in women protect against breast cancer.
If you can increase the way you feel and your overall health and decrease the use of unnecessary medications and side effects, why not?
