Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy (NHRT)

Causes of Hormone Imbalance

  • Poor Diet (excess sugars and carbohydrates),lack of healthy fats and oils, low fiber and water intake, insufficient vitamins, minerals and nutrients processed and fast foods.
  • Exposure to toxins such as preservatives, pesticides, smoke and other environmental toxins
  • Stress (depletes the adrenal glands and can create an imbalance among all hormones)
  • Lifestyle (lack of exercise ,lack of sleep, alcohol intake, smoking)

Symptoms related to Hormone Deficiency

  • Low Libido
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Mood Swings, Depression
  • Weight Gain
  • Insomnia
  • Memory and cognitive decline
  • Heart Disease
  • Osteoporosis

Correcting deficiencies of Hormones, Nutrients, Vitamins and removing heavy metals, drug and food toxins is very important in order to maintain healthy body.

Hormone Imbalances may result in: Thyroid deficiency ( iodine, zinc, selenium, ferritin, and B-1),Bone decline hormones (GH, Vitamin D progesterone, estrogen, testosterone), and nutrients (Boron, calcium, magnesium),Weight gain: due to Stress-can increase Cortisol and fat storage ,Toxicities and Free Radicals result in cell damage and function, Hormone imbalance (insulin, Vitamin D, thyroid, cortical, estrogen, progesterone imbalance),Deficiency in nutrients( Zinc , Magnesium, Potassium, Chromium, etc ).Memory decline: due to nutrient deficiencies (i.e. B-12, B-6, folate, anti-oxidants) and Hormone deficiencies (thyroid, progesterone, estrogen, testosterone). Premature aging: Decrease hormone levels and increase of free radicals in the body can result in increase risks of diseases and aging of the cells in the body. In order to maintain healthy functioning mind and body it is important to balance hormones and nutrients.

Hormone Deficiencies in Females

Restoring hormones with right combination of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone hormone levels combined with a healthy lifestyle and appropriate diet, will provide the tools to maintain a healthy vibrant lifestyle, and help improve menopause related symptoms (Hot flashes, mood swings, sleep disturbances, memory decline, weight gain, fatigue, and depression).

Progesterone

Low levels of progesterone may result in: Weight gain, Depression, Anxiety, panic attacks, bone loss
lighter sleep, PMS, mood swings, fibroids, breast and ovarian cysts, and heavier or irregular bleeding.

Estrogen

Estrogen is made of Estrone (E1) Estradiol (E2) and Estriol (E3). At the onset of menopause Estrogen declines sharply. Estrogen therapy is one good help to cope with deficiency and bring a hormonal balance in women and improve symptoms related to low Estrogen levels (Hot flashes, Skin and vaginal dryness, frequent urinary infections, urine incontinence bone loss, cognitive decline and premature aging). Risks of stroke, heart attack and breast cancer are higher after menopause.

Testosterone

Decline testosterone levels can result in low libido, joint and bone pain, muscle weakness, loss of confidence, mood changes, depression and fat gain.

Goals of NHRT

  • Fewer side effects than synthetic hormones
  • Alleviate the symptoms related to hormone imbalances
  • Provide protective benefits that hormones provide in early twenties
  • Re establish proper optimal levels.

Estrogen levels of E2 and E3 (breast and clot protective) decline and E1 increases (increase clots and cancer risk) with age. Utilizing NHRT such as Estrogen (E2 and E3) and natural Progesterone early therapy will help decrease risks of cardio diseases and cancer risks. Testosterone restoration plays a protective role against heart disease, cognitive decline and bone loss. Our natural hormone replacement therapy in South Carolina includes protective forms and delivery routes along with individualized therapy to achieve optimal functional levels.

Benefits related to NHRT

  • Fewer side effects than synthetic hormones
  • Protects against heart disease and stroke
  • Improves cholesterol, lipid and C-RP (C Reactive Protein ) levels
  • Helps regulate menstrual cycle and reduce bloating and cramps
  • Reduces memory lapses
  • Improves or eliminates night sweats and hot flashes
  • Slower appearance of aging
  • Improve sexual function
  • Maintain healthy bones, muscles and stamina
  • Improve memory and cognitive function

Synthetic hormones may increase risks of heart diseases, and cancer. Studies show that synthetic hormones such as Progestin (increase clots and breast cancer) and Premarin (high levels of E1) have shown to increase cardio vascular diseases and cancer risks.

Hormone imbalance in Males:

Testosterone deficiency or male andropause androgen deficiency in male (ADAM) is essentially ignored. Diminished testosterone levels, will result in a decline in their competitive drive, decreased sexual function, depression, and weight gain. Recent medical research shows that replenishing low testosterone deficiencies provided significant improvement in sexual function and libido, mood, increased energy and general well being for men. Testosterone restoration was thought to be associated with heart attacks and prostate cancer. Studies show that heart attacks and prostate cancer risks increase when the testosterone levels decline after age fifty and not when male are in early 20’s. Studies show that it is low testosterone and high estrogen, which increase risks of prostate cancer. Maintaining testosterone levels in the upper ranges may lower risk of cardiac and neurologic events.

Hormone Role and Function

Thyroid symptoms include: fatigue, memory decline, depression, weight gain, dry skin, constipation, feeling cold, hair loss, swelling of ankles, and palpitations. Improving thyroid function it is important to balance levels of ferritin, zinc, selenium, iodine and other elements needed.
Insulin resistance can result in cardiac risks and weight gain in lower abdomen, thighs, under arms, and under chin. Insulin resistance can result in continues weight gain even with exercise and healthy calorie intake. Low glycemic levels in the body will result in symptoms such as sugar cravings, severe sleepiness, dizziness, and headache. Restoring hormonal and nutritional levels along with clearance of toxins from the bowel and liver can improve metabolic symptoms. Pregnenolone helpful on memory and concentration. DHEA enhances strength, sexual energy and immunity. Melatonin support sleeping, and helpful in activating natural killer cells (powerful anti-cancer hormones)
