Some of the conditions it can help include:

Menopause

Menopause usually occurs in a woman’s mid to late 40’s or early 50’s, and it is a gradual process that happens when a woman’s ovaries make less estrogen and progesterone. A woman is considered to have reached menopause when she has not menstruated for 12 consecutive months. Symptoms of menopause may include hot flashes, night sweats, irritability, mood swings, insomnia, osteoporosis, lower libido, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and vaginal dryness.

Perimenopause

Perimenopause is a period of transition to natural menopause during which the body undergoes changes resulting from declining ovarian hormone production. Perimenopause can last from 4-6 years, and symptoms can include irregular menstrual periods, fatigue, weight gain, increased PMS symptoms, migraines, acne, infertility, water retention, sleeping issues, and mood swings.

Andropause

Andropause is the period of a man’s life that usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55, and it is a phenomenon similar to the female menopause. Andropause is marked with a drop in testosterone, which is secreted in the testicles. When this syndrome occurs, it may be accompanied by symptoms, such as changes in attitudes and moods, weight gain, fatigue, loss of motivation, reduced sex drive, erectile dysfunction, lowered physical agility, hair loss, muscle atrophy, and insomnia.

Weight Loss Resistance

Men and women that eat right, exercise, and make healthy choices may still have issues losing weight. Usually, progesterone and estrogen are the culprits that lead to weight loss difficulties and resistance. When hormones are balanced, it is possible to lose weight more easily. Metabolic functions and body composition is greatly dependent on having balanced hormones, a healthy digestive tract, a balanced diet, and an awareness of food allergies. Hanover Ontario Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Specialist, Carla Peppler at Heartful Wellness Centre can help patients to overcome weight loss resistance and obtain their weight loss goals.

Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal Fatigue syndrome is a stress-induced condition characterized by a set of common symptoms that indicate decreased function of the adrenal glands. When stress occurs for a consistent period of time, the adrenal glands are forced to secrete cortisol to counteract the inflammation caused from stress. Eventually, the adrenal glands wear out, which can cause adrenal fatigue. Some of the symptoms of adrenal fatigue may include chronic infections, fatigue, lack of motivation, headaches, sleep disturbances, insomnia, IBS, and anxiety.

Thyroid Imbalances

The Thyroid hormone helps to modulate carbohydrates, protein, fat metabolism, vitamin uses, digestion, muscle and nerve action, blood flow, hormone excretion, oxygen utilization, and sexual function. An imbalance of the thyroid hormone can affect every metabolic function in the body, and when thyroid hormone is not produced in sufficient amounts, it can cause hypothyroidism. With hypothyroidism, symptoms such as sudden weight gain, fatigue, facial edema, constipation, dry skin, stiff joints, increased sensitivity to cold, and thinning hair can occur. When there is an excess of the thyroid hormone being produced, it can cause hyperthyroidism, which can include symptoms of irregular periods, anxiety, unexplained weight loss, anxiety, increased bowel movements, spontaneous sweating, a rapid heartbeat, and an increased appetite.

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a disorder causing aching muscles, sleep disorders, and fatigue, and it is associated with abnormal levels of the brain chemicals that transmit nerve signals, which are known as neurotransmitters. It is characterized by symptoms in several body systems. Symptoms can include wide spread body pain, skin temperature changes, irritable bowel syndrome, brain fog, a weakened immune system, and repeated illnesses.
