Maintaining proper hormonal balance is vital to a woman’s health and well-being. Just like men, women can suffer from hormone imbalances that leave them feeling tired, flabby and lifeless. The reality is that hormone therapy can have a positive impact on a woman physically, mentally, and emotionally. Younger women may struggle with irregular menstrual cycles, moodiness, and fertility problems, while older women may suffer from a lack of vitality, decreased sex drive, or loss of energy.
Physical manifestations of hormonal imbalance can include infertility, weight gain, acne, fatigue, and irregular blood sugar levels. Mental and emotional manifestations include mood swings, loss of libido, low energy levels, depression, and anxiety.
As with men and andropause, women can suffer from hormonal imbalances at any age. Menopause is a time of particular vulnerability, due to the significant changes taking place in the body. While more mainstream doctors are becoming aware of the benefits to be had in treating women with bioidentical hormone therapy, not all doctors understand how the treatment works well enough to maximize effectiveness. Instead, they issue a prescription and consider the case closed.
Helping the body to regain its natural balance requires more hands-on monitoring than traditional medicine typically offers. The hormone replacement therapy specialists in our San Diego clinic will work closely with you to make sure you’re on the right track. The TOTAL T CLINIC system is a complete program that combines bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with nutrition, lifestyle changes, and strength and fitness training, for whole-body healing from the inside out.
