Bioidentical Hormones & Functional Medicine
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy protocols encompass many ideals found in the functional medicine model because it takes a systems approach and looks at the body as whole. Conventional forms of medicine often treat patient’s symptoms as being separate, and commonly, it does not address the fact that symptoms can all spring from the same source. Prescribing six different pills for six different symptoms is the typical approach of conventional medicine; however, functional medicine seeks to get to the root of an imbalance and aims to remove the cause. For example, a woman that sees her physician and complains of high blood sugar, depression, fatigue, headaches, and a poor appetite may be suffering from hormonal imbalances, and correcting her imbalances most likely will erase all of her symptoms. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help men and women to correct imbalances and reduce the symptoms of hormone decline. Patients can also derive a wide number of benefits, some of which include:
Healthier Sleep Cycles
Circadian rhythms, which tell the body when to feel drowsy and sleep or stay awake, are regulated in the hypothalamus, and hormones signal the hypothalamus to help it regulate sleeping cycles. Issues falling or staying asleep and waking up super early and not being able to go back to sleep are often the result of hormonal imbalances. Balancing hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help women and men to improve their sleep cycles.
Reduced Body Fat
Noticing extra abdominal fat or more inches around the waist or hips is not an uncommon complaint for aging men and women. Despite continuing to exercise and eat a healthy diet, people with declining hormone levels will inevitably gain body fat. Balancing hormone levels with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help to increase metabolism and help the body to shed unwanted fat.
Improved Sexual Function
Degenerating hormone levels can often lead to a decline in sexual function for both men and women. Women may experience vaginal dryness, low libido, inability to climax, or pain during intercourse. Erectile dysfunction, low libido, and reduced performance may occur for men experiencing reduced sex hormone levels. Revitalizing hormone levels with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help both men and women to improve their sexual function and overall enjoyment of sex.
Thyroid hormone and insulin play a role in providing the body with ample amounts of energy. Extracting energy from cells and synthesizing fats, carbohydrates, and proteins is the job of thyroid hormone, while insulin works to balance blood sugar in order to prevent dips in energy. Ensuring that these hormones are balanced can help men and women to have abundant amounts of energy throughout the day.
Increased Mental Clarity
Mental fogginess is a common complaint that occurs in aging men and women, and often this is due to declining sex hormone levels. Essential hormones work to protect the integrity of the brain by detoxifying it and promoting the efficiency of the neurons. Balancing hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can result in increased mental clarity.
More Stamina and Endurance
Fueling the production of red blood cells in the body, reduced levels of testosterone can lead to shortness of breath or poor workout performances. Red blood cells work to carry oxygen throughout the body; therefore, replenishing testosterone levels may increase red blood cells and in turn elevate the body’s oxygen carrying capacity to improve endurance and stamina.
Hormone fluctuations are often to blame for increased irritability, depression, apathy, anger, or anxiety. Essential hormones help to balance brain chemistry and moods; therefore, restoring hormone balance with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help to reduce mood swings. Many women and men that have balanced their hormones experience an increased sense of well-being and contentment.
