Female Hormone Imbalance Q & A
What is hormonal health care?
Hormonal health care is a branch of medicine that studies the effects of hormones on your health. Hormonal imbalance causes frustrating symptoms like:
- Weight gain
- Hot flashes
- Low libido
- Food cravings
These symptoms can derail your efforts toward a healthy lifestyle, making your normal daily activities difficult and leaving you feeling exhausted.
Balancing your hormones with hormone replacement therapy improves your levels of estrogen and progesterone, regulates the function of your thyroid gland, and optimizes your nutrition. That allows you to lose weight and have more energy, increased libido, and a better mood.
What is hormone replacement therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy is the use of supplemental hormones to prevent or reduce your symptoms. At Cross Roads Hormonal Health & Wellness, the doctors frequently rely on pellet therapy.
Pellet therapy involves the use of medical-grade granules, made from naturally-derived plant sources, to supply sustained levels of the hormones estrogen and progesterone. These pellets are smaller than a grain of rice and are inserted beneath the skin to produce hormones over a period of three to six months.
Pellet therapy prevents the “roller coaster effect” that is common with other forms of therapy. Hormone replacement therapy can help you feel normal again when combined with thyroid medications and nutritional supplements.
What are the benefits of hormone replacement therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy can help various symptoms and may also be beneficial as preventive care for women who are not yet starting to experience symptoms. The benefits of hormone replacement therapy include:
- Increased energy levels
- Restored or increased sexual drive
- Consistency in moods
- Decreased anxiety and depression
- Decreased body fat
- Increased mental clarity and focus
- Greater capacity to get your body back in shape
What can I expect with hormone replacement therapy?
A consultation with the doctors will provide you with individualized answers, so you know what to expect. Your doctors will complete lab work to analyze your current hormone levels and identify areas that require improvement.
Using evidence-based methods — not trial and error — your doctors develop a customized plan for you that addresses your levels of estrogen and progesterone, thyroid function, and nutritional status. Treatment may involve pellet therapy, nutrition supplements, education, and lifestyle counseling.
