Conditions Treated With Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Dr. Petersen and Anne Bowden design personalized programs that can correct hormone levels and imbalances. Using Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can reduce countless conditions associated with hormonal decline. Some of the syndromes and conditions that can be improved include:
Bringing on symptoms that include increased PMS symptoms, fatigue, irregular periods, amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, infertility, migraines, water retention, low libido and bloating. Perimenopause marks the first phase of initial female hormonal decline. Typically, women in their late thirties to early forties enter perimenopause due to ovarian hormonal decline. This phase lasts from three to ten years before menopause begins.
Sparking symptoms that can encompass vaginal dryness, low libido, fatigue, thinning hair, anxiety, depression, mental fogginess, weight gain, hot flashes, night sweats, and insomnia, menopause begins when the ovaries stop producing vital sex hormones, such as estrogen and progesterone. Shifting the responsibility of hormone production to the adrenal glands, the body depends on the adrenals to produce the needed hormones. If they are too exhausted to build the hormones, the symptoms of menopause result.
Marking the most prevalent phase of male hormonal decline, andropause leads to symptoms that include fatigue, lack of motivation, depression, reduced stamina and endurance, poor workout performances, thinning hair, erectile dysfunction, increased abdominal fat, and low libido. Correcting hormonal imbalances with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can allow men to reduce the symptoms of andropause and live healthier lives.
Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome
Chronically high stress levels often result in Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome, which leads to symptoms that include salty food cravings, feeling burned out, mental and physical fatigue, difficulty getting out of bed, lack of motivation, insomnia and headaches. Restoring adrenal hormone levels with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can allow men and women to resolve the symptoms associated with Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome.
Insufficient production of thyroid hormone often leads to hypothyroidism, which brings on symptoms that include intolerance to cold, depression, fatigue, thinning hair, irregular periods, goiter, constipation and weight gain. Restoring thyroid hormone levels with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can reduce the consequences of hypothyroidism.
Superabundant amounts of thyroid hormone excretion lead to hyperthyroidism, which causes symptoms such as increased heart rate, weight loss, panic attacks, nervousness, anxiety, increased bowel movements and bulging eyes. Correcting thyroid hormone imbalances with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can reverse the effects of hyperthyroidism.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Mimicking several symptoms of the flu, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome often brings on symptoms such as swollen lymph nodes, a chronic sore throat, body aches, joint pain with no swelling, headaches, insomnia and exhaustion that lasts more than twenty-four hours. Numerous hormones are involved in regulating and strengthening the immune system, and balancing these hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can resolve or eliminate many symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Fibromyalgia is an autoimmune disorder that most commonly occurs in women over the age of fifty, and this illness causes symptoms that include mental fogginess, tender points, body aches, fatigue, alternating constipation with diarrhea, bladder disturbances and joint pain. Certain hormones work to reduce pain sensitivity in the body, and when they are deficient, increased pain or inflammation may occur.
