A wide variety of body processes are carried out by the endocrine system through chemical messengers called hormones. The endocrine system is a collection of glands that produce hormones, which regulate growth, metabolism, and sexual development and function. These glands release hormones directly into the blood stream where they are transported to organs and tissues throughout the entire body. The major glands of the endocrine system are the pineal gland, pituitary gland, thyroid gland, thymus, adrenal glands, pancreas, ovaries, and testes.
The body has many different types of hormones. Some of the more known hormones are estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol, DHEA, and thyroid hormone. They work together to control body functions. Keeping them balanced is important for good health.
As aging occurs, hormone levels can change, and while some hormones may increase, others may decline. These changes can create a state of hormone imbalance. Many age-related diseases and health challenges are commonly associated with hormone imbalance, and Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help a number of these syndromes caused from hormonal imbalances.
Some of the issues Bioidentical Hormones can help to address include:
- Adrenal Fatigue
- Chronic Fatigue
The symptoms of hormone imbalances are many, and may include fatigue, weight gain, loss of muscle strength, anxiety, depression, mood swings, brain fog, irritability, PMS, menstrual irregularities, hot flashes, infertility, sexual dysfunction, thinning or loss of hair, swelling, headache, insomnia, dizziness upon standing, hypoglycemia, and sensitivity to weather changes or smells.
Combining a complete history and evaluation of signs and symptoms with the hormonal test results, such as saliva or blood testing, Ontario Bioidentical Hormones Specialist, Carla Peppler will work with patients to jointly create a health care plan to address individual health concerns.
Carla can help patients determine if Bioidentical Hormone Replacement is an appropriate option for them to consider. Other treatment options may also be recommended, such as lifestyle changes, diet modifications, supplements, or other therapies. Through Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, Ontario Bioidentical Hormones Specialist, Carla Peppler has guided many patients back to health and wellness.
