Throughout your life, there will likely be a time when you experience hormonal imbalances, which can significantly impact your quality of life. Whether caused by age, illness, stress, or another factor, you can experience a wide range of symptoms, such as fatigue, constipation, irritability, or weight gain. Hormone therapy is recommended to restore balance within your body, but that is not your only option. You can choose a natural approach with bioidentical hormones and changes to your lifestyle.
Do I Need Hormone Therapy?
After the age of 40, it is common for men and women to experience several symptoms associated with improper hormone levels in the body. Traditionally, synthetic hormones are used to restore a harmonious balance.
They have been prescribed for decades because they are effective but not without unwanted side effects. Traditional hormone replacement therapy uses those that are created in a laboratory from chemicals or synthetics. Not to mention, they are not tailored to your specific needs. As a result, it is normal to be concerned about their safety. You do not need to delay getting the relief you need because you do not want to use traditional pharmaceuticals. Instead, you can choose a natural solution.
Bioidentical hormone therapy does not use man-made chemicals. Instead, it uses supplements and other naturally occurring substances to restore your hormone levels. They closely align with what your body produces naturally, so they can help you get your life back to normal without any unwanted side effects.
Rest assured, you will not have a cookie-cutter treatment plan. Instead, the prescribed supplements are tailored to your specific needs to help you achieve maximum results.
Are There Alternatives to Hormone Therapy?
If you are experiencing symptoms of hormone imbalances, you can combine your therapy with changes to your lifestyle to achieve maximum results. Although lifestyle changes alone are not enough to rebalance your hormones, it can compliment bioidentical hormone therapy. There are a few easy ways to help create balance in your body, such as:
- Eat a Balanced Diet: Consume a diet that contains plenty of plant-based foods, especially those that are high in fiber.
- Stay Active: Regular exercise can eliminate excess hormones through perspiration. It also increases your metabolism and improves your circulation to promote your wellness overall.
- Stress Management: Stress can wreak havoc throughout your body as it causes hormonal imbalances. Meditation, yoga, or other stress-relieving exercises can help keep cortisol and adrenaline to a minimum.
