Hormone Havoc During the Holidays
Are You Hormone Deficient?
It’s amazing how many aspects of your life are affected when your hormones are out of balance. Hot flashes, night sweats, sleep disturbances, and depression are just some of the disruptive symptoms many women suffer from. As if these aren’t bad enough, low energy, lack of libido, irritability and emotional instability often stretch relationships to their limits. Many women simply feel like they’re losing it at this stage of life.
Hormone deficiency takes its toll on you even on ordinary days. Add to it all of the holiday activities, obligations or demands and your stress levels can skyrocket. Unfortunately, the first thing many physicians will do for you is to write a prescription for anti-depressants or anti-anxiety medication. However, what you really need is to have your hormones checked. If vital hormones are depleted, simply treating individual symptoms will not provide what your body needs for overall well-being. You may still suffer from hormone-related migraines, hot flashes or other symptoms of a body out of balance.
Key Hormone Levels to Test
Hormones play an important role throughout your body. 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.
