Estrogen in Women: Let’s cut to the chase. Estrogen is the feel-good hormone for women. You simply won’t feel your best without an adequate supply in your system.
Progesterone in Women: Bioidentical progesterone is the can-do-no-wrong hormone for women. Aside from its unique benefits, it polices estrogen’s activities and keeps it safe.
Testosterone in Women: Testosterone does wonderful things for a woman’s body. In particular, it fuels sex drive, improves the ability to build lean muscle mass, and stabilizes mood.
DHEA: Healthy levels of DHEA are a “strong predictor” for longevity and a lower incidence of disease. It’s also the most plentiful sex hormone in the body.
Thyroid: The thyroid gland and its many associated hormones regulates metabolism, and can be thought of as the “traffic center” for your endocrine system.
Growth Hormone: GH is responsible for cell growth and repair throughout the body. Every cell, organ, and system within your body is impacted by this important hormone.
Cortisol: Cortisol is the hormone responsible for releasing adrenalin when you’re under stress. In small doses, this is a good—but too much cortisol is toxic.
Oxytocin in Women: Women often associate oxytocin with conception, childbirth, and lactation. But oxytocin has a sexy side. We like to call it the love hormone.
Hot flashes, night sweats, trouble sleeping and weight gain are the most common symptoms of hormonal imbalance as a woman ages. Perimenopause weight gain is often times misdiagnosed and is one of the first signs of hormonal imbalance. These signs of menopause or early menopause and related conditions are also connected to your stress levels, poor nutrition, lack of exercise and the environmental toxins your body is exposed to on a daily basis.
Thrive Health and Wellness, LLC physicians use only bio identical hormones, which are identical to the body’s natural chemistry. We provide natural female hormone replacement treatment plans that support women suffering the symptoms of perimenopause, menopause whether due to age or a hysterectomy, adrenal fatigue, and thyroid disorders by using bio identical hormone therapy to live the best life possible.
Hormonal imbalances are the root of many chronic health problems and can increase your risk of serious disease. In women, the symptoms often first appear in perimenopause or menopause, when estrogen, progesterone and testosterone production begins to diminish.
The good news is that hormone losses and imbalances are correctible. Through the use of bio identical hormones, women can not only be relieved of the symptoms, but also effectively protect themselves against osteoporosis and heart disease. And through supervised treatment, natural hormone replacement therapy can make women feel healthier, and younger than they have in years.
