Women at any age may struggle with hormone imbalance. Correcting hormone imbalance is essential to health and well-being as long term imbalance can negatively affect the immune system and create many challenges for women. Typical symptoms of hormone imbalance include premenstrual syndrome, polycystic ovarian syndrome, heavy menses, painful menses, hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, forgetfulness, mood swings, and vaginal dryness. Bio-identical hormones are one of many options at Whole Health Associates available to restore hormone balance.
Bio-identical hormones are hormones that are derived from natural sources such as yams or soy. The chemical structure of these natural compounds are identical to the structure of hormones produced by the human body. Synthetic hormones created by pharmaceutical companies have a different molecular structure than the hormones naturally produced by a woman’s body and are more likely to be viewed by the body as a toxin. This is likely why women that are struggling with hormone imbalance often find that bio-identical hormones blend better with their body than traditional synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones are uniquely compounded by a Licensed Compounding Pharmacist and the dosing is tailored to each individual woman’s needs.
If you are interested in exploring if bio-identical hormones are a good fit for you, please schedule an appointment with Dr. Elizabeth Jensen, APRN to review your health history and discuss your options.
