A woman with balanced hormones feels alive. Her energy levels are abundant, her libido is balanced, she has mental focus, improved complexion (less wrinkles) and moisturized skin. Additionally, a woman with balanced hormones receives protection from heart disease, osteoporosis, breast cancer, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, sleep apnea and many other health conditions. Balanced hormones lead to improved blood sugar balance and improved lipid and cholesterol levels.

We age because our hormones decline…our hormones don’t decline because we age.” ~Ron Rothenberg, M.D. (World Expert in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy)
“Thus, with balanced hormones, we can significantly reduce the negative health issues that develop with age.” Dr. Cheryl Winter, DCN, FNP-BC, IFMCP, RDN
There is no reason to suffer!
Men also receive tremendous benefits from balanced hormones, including optimized libido, greater energy, increased fitness, and reductions in belly fat. As in women, balanced hormones, protect men against diabetes, heart disease and osteoporosis, and leads to improved blood sugar balance and lipid and cholesterol levels. Additionally, balanced hormones lessen erectile dysfunction, sleep apnea and reduces the risk of prostate cancer.

Benefits of Estrogen:
Estrogen therapy benefits include protection against heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, Alzheimer's disease, and memory disorders. Estrogen protects against vaginal atrophy urinary incontinence, urinary tract infections, macular degeneration, and cataracts. Estrogen helps to prevent menopausal hot flashes and temperature dysregulation. Estrogen may also improve static balance and prevent neurodegeneration. Estrogen decreases lipids and increases bone density. It also improves skin quality/texture.
Benefits of Progesterone:
Progesterone will help with improvement in quality of sleep, brain fog and short-term memory. Progesterone also reduces symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), headaches, breast cancer, and osteoporosis. This hormone can moderate the side effects of excess estrogen, reduce bloating, headaches, bleeding and fibroids. Progesterone stabilizes and protects the uterine lining from developing abnormal cells that may progress to cancerous cells thus protecting from uterine and breast carcinoma.
Benefits of Testosterone:
Both men and women require adequate levels of testosterone for optimal physical and mental health, and for the prevention of chronic illnesses, e.g. Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, and heart attacks, which are associated with low testosterone levels. Additionally, testosterone has been utilized for the treatment of menstrual headaches and migraines, as well as providing relief of vaginal dryness, urinary frequency and urgency, and incontinence. In both men and women, testosterone has been shown to also relieve depression and anxiety, improve concentration and memory, increase energy and an overall sense of well-being, and to treat testosterone deficiencies caused by the birth control pill.
Benefits of DHEA:
DHEA is a major androgen in the serum, for both men and women. It is a precursor of testosterone and estrogen. DHEA reduces cardiovascular risk by decreasing visceral fat. DHEA also stimulates the immune system, improves mood, restores sexual vitality and decreases cholesterol for beneficial results.
Benefits of Thyroid Hormone:
The thyroid impacts every major system in your body. It is important to have the right hormone levels for your body's needs. The function of the thyroid gland is to take iodine, found in many foods, and convert it into thyroid hormones: thyroxine (T4), triiodothyronine (T3). These thyroid hormones essentially control metabolism. Every cell in the body depends upon thyroid hormones for regulation of their metabolism.
Signs of Low Thyroid Hormone:
- weight gain
- poor energy
- dry, thick skin
- thinning hair and hair loss
- muscle weakness
- feeling cold
- poor concentration
- decreased sex drive
- numbness or tingling in hands
- swollen eyes (Graves Disease)
- heavy or long menstrual cycles
