Hormones affect how we feel such as our mood, our clarity and our energy.

Hormones affect every cell and ultimately every organ in the body. Any imbalances in our hormones can cause a variety of very unpleasant symptoms. Hormones affect how we feel such as our mood, our clarity and our energy. When our hormones are out of balance, we may experience mood swings, depression, irritability and anxiety which will affect our work and relationships.

Here are some tell-tale signs that your hormones may need rebalancing:

  • Weight gain especially around the abdomen and hips
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety / Depression / Irritability
  • Lack of focus
  • Low libido
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Poor memory
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Menstrual cycle irregularities
  • Heavy periods
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Fibroids / Endometriosis
  • Bone loss
  • Hot flashes or night sweats

In order to really find out which hormones are too high and which hormones are too low, we recommend a salivary hormone test. Once we receive your results, we can create a personalized treatment plan with the appropriate bio-identical hormones, supplements and nutrition.

Bio-identical hormones are produced from plants and are converted into chemical structures that precisely match the human hormones that our body makes. These bio-identical hormones function exactly the same way as our own hormones do. The difference between BHRT and just HRT is that HRT is comprised of synthetic and/or animal derived hormones that are not structurally identical to our own natural hormones. They can more serious side-effects such as breast cancer and blood clots.

BHRT has a long history of safe and successful use, specifically in Europe where they have been used for 60 years. Nonetheless, please contact one of our qualified naturopathic doctors to see if BHRT is right for you.
