Hormone Balancing Q & A
What are hormones?
Your endocrine system creates chemical messengers called hormones that travel through your bloodstream to your cells to activate and manage complex bodily functions like metabolism, growth, fertility, immunity, mood, behavior, movement, and emotions.
Endocrine glands that secrete hormones include your thyroid, pancreas, adrenals, pituitary, hypothalamus, and thymus. Your pituitary oversees the production and release of the key sex hormones: estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.
What are bioidentical hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are developed from plant ingredients and are engineered to perfectly mimic the hormones your body naturally makes. They are used to balance hormones that your body loses during the aging process or due to another condition.
Bioidentical hormones have the same molecular structure as your natural hormones and are effectively used by your body with minimal or no side effects.
Who needs hormone balancing support?
Menopause is one of the most common reasons for hormone balancing with bioidentical hormones. Other benefits that bioidentical hormones offer are:
- Better sleep
- Improved muscle and joint movement
- Decreased urinary frequency
- Improved sexual function
- Minimized vaginal dryness and erectile dysfunction
- Reduced hair thinning and loss
- Enhanced mental clarity
- Increased energy
- Improved bone strength
- Stabilized mood
Bioidentical hormones are beneficial for both men and women because they regulate and balance your hormones as you age. Dr. Helen meets with you to determine if hormone balancing is right for you. Dr. Helen will conduct a comprehensive physical examination, ask questions to understand your health and family history, and evaluate your symptoms.
She will send samples to the lab to better understand how to customize hormone replacement therapy for you. A personalized treatment program will be desinged for you. In addition to in-office evaluations, Dr. Helen offers online evaluations, to Alabama residents, to accomplish your goals.
How are bioidentical hormones administered?
Dr. Helen writes a custom prescription to meet your needs and sends it to your pharmacist to compound them. You may receive your hormone replacement therapy from pills, creams, gels, patches, or pellets.
