Declining hormones can negatively impact your daily life and overall feelings of wellbeing. Menopausal women (menstruation ceases) in particular, often feel “out of sync” as their ovaries begin to decrease production of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. Declining hormone levels can trigger profound mental, emotional, and physical changes. Though some side effects may be considered temporary nuisances to just be “toughed out,” the reality is that the decline of female hormonal levels results in changes that can seriously affect your health, vitality, and prospects for longevity.
NEGATIVE EFFECTS OF DECLINING HORMONES
Other hormones, including thyroid hormone and human growth hormone, also decline during menopause. As the levels of these key hormones diminish, growth and metabolism changes occur and affect the following:
- Blood vessels
- GI tract
- Urinary tract (UT)
- Cardiovascular system
- Skin, brain and energy Levels
Many women experience hot flashes, loss of libido, weight gain, insomnia, and emotional changes such as depression and anxiety. Long-term risks of menopause include osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease.
HOW WE TREAT: MENOPAUSE
Regneveda offers complete biodentical hormone replacement therapy in Chicago, New York, and Beverly Hills. Bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to those the body produces. While hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone naturally decrease with age, the use of bioidentical hormones, as part of a prescribed hormone replacement therapy, can help to restore hormones more youthful levels. This can result in more energy, better memory, a healthier heart, stronger bones, and a more youthful glow. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), also known as natural hormone therapy, is different than conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) because bioidentical hormones are naturally derived from plant chemicals.
