Hormone Therapy Q & A

What is a hormonal imbalance?

When you have either too much or too little of a specific hormone in your bloodstream, it’s considered a hormonal imbalance. Hormones play an essential role in many of your body’s systems. Your endocrine system produces these natural chemicals and sends them through your body via your bloodstream. 

Hormones tell your organs and tissues what to do and how to do it. When your hormones are out of balance, you may experience problems with any of the following systems.

  • Digestion
  • Metabolism 
  • Reproductive cycles
  • Sexual function
  • Body temperature
  • Heart rate
  • Mood and stress levels
  • Sleep patterns

Additionally, hormones regulate your body’s general growth and development, so it’s important to keep them in balance at every age. 

What causes hormone imbalances?

Both women and men may experience hormonal imbalances as a result of a variety of underlying health conditions, such as:

  • Overactive thyroid gland
  • Underactive thyroid gland
  • Poor diet and nutrition
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic stress
  • Severe allergic reactions
  • Exposure to toxins and pollutants

Additionally, women often experience an estrogen hormone imbalance during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause, and men can experience low testosterone levels as they age.

What is hormone optimization?

Hormone optimization is a method of rebalancing your hormones, so you feel like yourself again. Depending on the underlying cause of your hormone imbalance, your provider at Regenerative Medicine of the Rockies recommends a comprehensive treatment plan. This may include placing hormone pellets under your skin or hormone injections. 

Manufactured bioidentical hormones are most similar to the natural hormones your body produces. When you receive these hormones through a tiny pellet under your skin, or via injections, these hormone supplements can help reduce unpleasant symptoms, such as night sweats, hot flashes, or excessive hair loss or growth. Your provider can help you determine which type of hormone optimization is right for you so you can get the relief you need. 

In keeping with a holistic, natural approach to managing hormones, your provider may also recommend lifestyle changes to reduce symptoms, such as:

  • Nutritional changes
  • Regular exercise
  • Stress management techniques
  • Developing good sleeping habits

If you’ve felt out of sorts for a while, have increased irritability, fatigue, or sexual dysfunction, the multidisciplinary team at Regenerative Medicine of the Rockies can help. Contact the office by phone or through the online booking system to get relief from hormone imbalances.
