Many women experience the effects of hormone imbalance as they age, some as early as age 35. No one can accurately predict when, or if these symptoms will occur and the extent to which they may impact the quality of your life.
There are key signals that should alert you to the possibility that changes you sense in your body may be related to depleted hormone levels. If you notice loss of libido, unexpected weight gain, forgetfulness, unusual mood swings, changes in the look and feel of your hair and skin, or just general fatigue and a lack of energy or drive, you are probably experiencing the unpleasant side effects of perimenopause or menopause. Perimenopause is characterized by irregular periods, is more common in your mid to late 40’s, and can last for several years before periods stop completely during full menopause.
Another common hormonal imbalance is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) which affects 7-10% of women of childbearing age and is one of the most common causes of infertility. In the United States, an estimated 5-6 million women have PCOS. It is a hormonal disorder thought to be caused by genetics, and it closely linked to insulin resistance or obesity.
Symptoms of PCOS include irregular or absent menstrual periods, infertility, weight gain (especially at the waist), acne, excess hair on the face and body, thinning scalp hair, darkening skin, depression or anxiety, or poor sleep.
We believe the problem starts with a decline or imbalance in the supply of natural hormones within the body. We solve the problem with hormones the body recognizes as being identical to the ones to which it is familiar. Restoring hormonal balance has many positive health benefits as well as helping to control symptoms of menopause. Most doctors treat patients with synthetic drugs that have been known to have harsh and unpleasant side effects and risks such as blood clots and breast cancer.
