Natural Hormone Therapy
Hormones are the signal carriers for the body. They regulate many physiological functions and help maintain homeostasis. Hormones are produced and regulated by the glands and organs that are part of the endocrine system. Hormones will regulate metabolism, and establish communication between different organs so they function properly together. When hormones become unbalanced or the production of them isn’t right, it can cause health concerns. Natural hormone replacement therapy can get the hormones back to their proper balance and bring balance back to the body.

Hormone replacement therapy or HRT is a good way to treat hormone imbalances. HRT replaces hormones that have become low or missing. It can be used as an alternative to estrogen or testosterone replacement therapy. It can treat hypothyroidism, menopause, and polycystic ovary syndrome. If you are considering HRT there are some things that you should know before starting the process.
Choosing HRT is a personal decision and should be done with the help of a physician. HRT can be used for many reasons. The primary reasons people choose HRT is to address osteoporosis and to improve the quality of life. Women may also want to choose HRT to treat menopausal symptoms.
There are a few different hormone replacement therapies that are currently used. Many will use artificial hormones that can have undesirable side effects. Some hormone replacement therapies use bio-identical hormones that are found in other natural sources but are identical to those found in the human body. The bio-identical hormones can trigger the body to produce its own hormones and improve the quality of life.
Natural hormones are the hormones that are produced in the endocrine glands and include estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone. These particular hormones play an important role in our daily lives. They influence physiological functions, like metabolism, and are central to physical and emotional wellbeing.
As you age the levels of hormones in your body will decrease. These hormones are estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone. Low levels of these hormones can lead to hot flashes and night sweats. One can lose interest in sex, have mood changes, and deal with the loss of energy or fatigue. Hormonal imbalances can create problems with sleeping and cause memory loss or confusion.
Replacing the hormones that are low or lost is the main goal of HRT. When the hormone levels are brought back into balance the symptoms will improve. People who are taking HRT will have regular visits with their healthcare provider. The goal is to reduce the symptoms with the lowest dose of hormones possible. These regular visits will also allow your healthcare provider to adjust the levels to meet your needs.
