POSSIBLE CAUSES OF HORMONE IMBALANCE:
Stress – Whether physical or emotional, chronic stress can cause Adrenal Fatigue (Cortisol Imbalance) which can affect sex hormones and mimic menopausal symptoms.
Menopause – Whether surgically or naturally with age, when hormone levels drop or become imbalanced the effects are likely to be felt both physically and mentally.
BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
Hormone Replacement Therapy is one the most debated topics. Ask questions. Should you? Shouldn't you? How much? How long? The key to answering these questions is working with professionals who specialize in the mid-life and menopause issues. Know you options. Choices give us power over our own bodies and lives. Work with knowledgeable health professionals to design a program that matches your health needs and goals.
The main benefit of using bio-identical HRT vs. synthetic is that the natural preparations are compounded to match more closely the way they are produced in the body. The dose of the hormones may also be adjusted to meet the needs of the individuals, as opposed to the “one size fits all” approach of some synthetics.
