Many women experience imbalanced levels of the hormones estrogen, testosterone and progesterone as they age. While perimenopause can begin as early as a woman’s 30s, more women as young as their 20s are experiencing hormone imbalance today, here’s the kicker – hormone imbalance typically occurs several years before obvious symptoms appear.
As hormone imbalance takes hold, women may experience troubling symptoms, such as insomnia, low energy, anxiety and depression, mood swings, stubborn weight gain, lack of desire for sex and more. As if these frustrating symptoms weren’t bad enough, imbalanced hormones in women may increase the risk of osteoporosis, cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and other diseases and conditions.
An Integrated Approach
EvexiPEL practitioners take an integrated approach to treating hormone imbalance in women. They perform a thorough exam to assess hormone levels and determine what caused the hormone imbalance (estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, thyroid, and others) and other health issues in the first place.
For many women, the natural decline in estrogen and testosterone production is to blame. Other patients may also have difficulty metabolizing hormones or suffer from low thyroid, poor gut health or other ailments. EvexiPEL practitioners also pay special attention to treating toxicity – physical, environmental and mental – which may leave women more susceptible to illnesses and disease.
Regain Energy and Balance
Once the EvexiPEL practitioner uncovers the root cause of your hormone imbalance and other health issues – they’ll prescribe a treatment plan to address your specific needs.
For women with hormone imbalance, research consistently shows that subcutaneous bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) with pellets may be a superior method for delivering hormones because of the individualized dosing, steady state of hormone release and natural over synthetic options. Depending on the patient, the practitioner may also prescribe a detoxification program, thyroid supplements, nutritional supplements, weight loss program, mental health support and more.
