Benefits of Bioidentical Hormones
Physiological symptoms that result from a weak or imbalanced endocrine system can bring about several diseases that are commonly associated with aging. Jeanette Queen, M.S., N.P. in the Calgary Metropolitan Region understands that bringing hormones into balance can prevent numerous age related diseases and symptoms.
Hormones are involved in a tremendous number of functions, and when they fall out of balance, the body is often adversely affected and rapidly begins to show signs of aging. Restoring hormones with Jeanette Queen’s Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help men and women derive numerous benefits and potentially prevent several age-related diseases. Some of the benefits that can be derived with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy include:
- Healthier Sleep Cycles
Circadian rhythms, which tell the body when to feel drowsy and sleep or stay awake, are regulated in the hypothalamus, and hormones signal the hypothalamus to help it regulate sleeping cycles. Issues falling or staying asleep and waking up super early and not being able to go back to sleep are often the result of hormonal imbalances. Balancing hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help women and men to improve their sleep cycles.
- Reduced Body Fat
Noticing extra abdominal fat or more inches around the waist or hips is not an uncommon complaint for aging men and women. Despite continuing to exercise or eat a healthy diet, men and women with disproportionate hormone levels will find it hard to lose weight. Balancing hormone levels with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help to increase metabolism and help the body to shed unwanted fat.
- Improved Sexual Function
Imbalanced hormone levels can often lead to a decline in sexual function for both men and women. Women may experience vaginal dryness, low libido, inability to climax, or pain during intercourse. Erectile dysfunction, low libido, and reduced performance may occur for men experiencing reduced hormone levels. Revitalizing hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help both men and women to improve their sexual function and overall enjoyment of life.
- More Energy
The thyroid hormone and insulin play important roles in providing the body with ample amounts of energy. Extracting energy from cells and synthesizing fats, carbohydrates, and proteins is the job of the thyroid hormone, while insulin works to balance blood sugar in order to prevent dips in energy. Ensuring that these hormones are balanced can help men and women to have abundant amounts of energy throughout the day.
- Increased Mental Clarity
Mental fogginess is a common complaint that occurs in aging men and women; this is often due to declining hormone levels. Essential hormones work to protect the integrity of the brain by detoxifying it and promoting the efficiency of the neurons. Balancing hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can result in increased mental clarity.
- More Stamina and Endurance
Fueling the production of red blood cells in the body, reduced levels of testosterone can lead to shortness of breath or poor workout performances. Red blood cells work to carry oxygen throughout the body; therefore, replenishing testosterone levels may increase red blood cells and in turn elevate the body’s oxygen carrying capacity to improve endurance and stamina.
- Balanced Moods
Hormone fluctuations are often to blame for increased irritability, depression, apathy, anger, or anxiety. Hormones help to balance brain chemistry and moods. Restoring hormone balance with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can also help to reduce mood swings. Many women and men who have balanced their hormones experience an increased sense of wellbeing and contentment.
