How to Recognize the Signs of a Hormone Imbalance
Persistent mood swings, sleepless nights, and a reduction in mental clarity are common enough complaints for many people who are overworked; however, if you’re experiencing these and other symptoms, a hormone imbalance may be the true cause. Dr. Jeffrey A. Hunt and our experienced nurse practitioner, Joy Drexler, ARNP, can help you determine whether bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) may be able to help.
Your hormones, which act as chemical signals to the brain, are responsible for a wide variety of factors related to your health, both mental and physical. When your hormones fluctuate, particularly when they decrease, numerous systems within the body can be negatively impacted. While commonly age related, hormone imbalance may occur in individuals as young as 30.
The first step to determining whether you’re experiencing a hormonal imbalance is by recognizing some of the typical signs of the disorder. If you have noticed any of the following occurring with increasing regularity, it may be time to talk with us:
- Memory loss
- Weight gain
- Loss of sleep
- Mood swings
- Decreased libido
There is no reason for you to continue living with these bothersome conditions, which can potentially damage your relationships at work and at home. BHRT from our practice can help to stabilize your hormone levels and improve your quality of life, all without synthetic chemicals or a series of pills to remember. In fact, there are no pills at all! For more information about how BHRT works, check back next week to read our blog on The Benefits of Bio-Identical Pellet Therapy.
