What Are Hormones?
Each part of your body from your brain to your skin, your heart, your kidneys, and your muscles has a specific job. They take direction from your endocrine system to get the work done. The glands of the endocrine system send out hormones that tell each part of your body what work to do, when to do it, and for how long.
Why Are Hormones Important?
Hormones are vital to your health and well-being. Hormones are your body’s chemical messengers. They travel in your bloodstream to tissues or organs to help them do their work. Eventually, the hormones being to slow down, and affect many different processes. Our mood, health, weight, stress, blood sugar levels, and more are impacted when hormone levels are out of balance. Over time, we are at a higher risk of Diabetes, Heart Disease, Osteoporosis, hypertension and other diseases due to untreated hormonal imbalance. Our hormones can become unbalanced for many reasons. And, unfortunately, a hormonal imbalance is frequently misdiagnosed in its early stages leading to a long road to misdiagnosed treatments.
Treatment For Hormonal Imbalance
Bi-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy:
The term bio-identical is a very simple and descriptive term that defines the hormone being used for replacement therapy as exactly the same molecular structure as the hormone produced by the body. The reason bio-identical is important is that one can’t be allergic to a bio-identical hormone, and the body can utilize and metabolize it just as if it were being produced by the gland from which the endogenous hormone is produced. These hormones are able to follow normal metabolic pathways so that essential active metabolites are formed in response to hormone replacement therapy.
