Do you struggle with unexplained mood swings? How about night sweats? Do you have trouble sleeping or difficulty concentrating throughout the day? Is your skin unusually dry? Has your hair thinned? While many women write these symptoms off, these issues aren’t normal. Rather, they may be indicative of a hormonal imbalance, and unless you receive the proper treatment — hormonal therapy — these problems typically don’t improve.
Below, the experts at Arijai Aesthetics discuss what hormonal therapy is, how it can help improve your symptoms, and signs that may indicate you’re a candidate for treatment.
What Is Hormonal Therapy?
Hormonal therapy is a method of administering replacement hormones to rebalance your endocrine system. At Arijai Aesthetics, we administer bioidentical hormone therapy, which means the hormones we use are not synthetic. Rather, they are created from naturally occurring sources and are designed to mimic the way your endogenously produced hormones function. Technically, a woman’s body cannot distinguish between bioidentical hormones and the hormones that are naturally produced in the ovaries.
How Bioidentical Hormonal Therapy Can Help Mysterious Health Symptoms
First, it’s important to note that unless you’ve been evaluated by a physician, you cannot know for sure whether hormonal therapy will help alleviate your symptoms. You must undergo hormone testing to determine if you currently suffer from an endocrine imbalance, and the results of your tests will determine what type of therapy you should pursue.
In terms of alleviating bothersome symptoms, bioidentical hormones can provide substantial relief and a return to normal functioning because they act within the body just as your natural hormones do. Women who opt for hormone administration via pellet insertion — the method we use at Arijai Aesthetics — stand to experience a variety of systemic improvements, including:
● Weight loss (hormonal imbalances often cause mysterious weight gain)
● Improved sleep
● Increased libido
● Better concentration and memory retention
● More stable mood
● Improvement or elimination of hot flashes and night sweats
● Improved metabolic function
● Improved eye, skin, and hair health
Symptoms That May Indicate the Need for Hormonal Therapy
Please keep in mind that while the following symptoms may indicate the presence of a hormonal imbalance, only a licensed physician can determine whether hormonal therapy is right for you. It may be time to schedule a consultation with a qualified practitioner if you struggle with any of the following issues:
● Unexplained hair thinning
● An unexplained drop in your libido
● Trouble falling asleep or staying asleep
● Persistent fatigue or exhaustion
● Muscle weakness
● Persistent brain fog, trouble concentrating, and memory retention problems
● Mood swings
