“I was a person who suffered for years with severe depression. Most days I couldn’t get out of bed and cried myself to sleep. I finally spoke with my family practitioner and they suggested I take an antidepressant medication to address the issue. I have never been one to take medications to mask issues. After speaking with a friend, they highly recommended I talk with a doctor at SottoPelle to see if maybe I might be menopausal. Sure enough, after getting my bloodwork done and hormones evaluated, I was low in testosterone and estrogen. This explained why I wasn’t sleeping at night, my thinning hair, and my depression. After my treatments, I have never felt better AND happier.”

Hormones play an important role in how your body functions. Physiologic levels are needed for optimum health and well-being. As they diminish with age, so does your quality of life.
• Estradiol is a woman’s most important hormone. It’s not just a sex hormone. Receptor cells exist throughout the body. Estradiol is known to support bone growth and help maintain healthy bones and joints. It has neuroprotective effects in the brain and improves blood flow in coronary arteries. Importantly, estradiol can raise serotonin levels. This, in turn, provides relief from depression and fosters sleep.
• Testosterone is important for both men and women. It supports motivation, boosts energy levels, improves concentration and elevates mood, among other positive benefits.
• Other hormones that impact quality of life and how you handle stress include: progesterone, thyroid, vitamin D, adrenal hormones and more.
It’s important to seek out a specialist in bioidentical hormone pellet therapy who can determine which hormones are lacking and the levels needed to restore hormonal balance.
