Are you sick and tired of feeling sick, tired, full of fatigue? Have you lost your oomph? Don’t have enough energy to participate in life the way you want to?
Before you load up on the sugar and caffeine or get a prescription for anti-depressants, take a moment to consider an alternative option.
What if your fatigue symptoms stem from a hormone imbalance? And what if you could easily receive a customized treatment that will get your hormones back into balance and you back on track? If that sounds good to you, read on!
Mentally and Physically Fatigued
Most adults will experience fatigue at some point in their lives. It shows up as constantly feeling tired or weak. And it isn’t just a physical feeling. You can experience mental fatigue, as well.
The worst-case scenario is when you feel both mentally and physically fatigued. When that happens, it feels like it is impossible to get anything done. And you may lose interest in the things you love because you don’t have the energy to put into them.
Fatigue can cause a range of physical, emotional, and mental symptoms, including:
- muscle weakness
- tiredness or sleepiness
- slowed reflexes and responses
- sore or aching muscles
- moodiness, such as irritability
- impaired decision-making and judgment
- impaired hand-to-eye coordination
- reduced immune system function
- appetite loss
- poor concentration
- blurry vision
- short-term memory problems
- low motivation
- reduced ability to pay attention
Hormone-related Causes of Fatigue
Both men and women can suffer from fatigue, even when a decline in hormones causes it. One of the most common reasons for hormone-related fatigue is a decline in:
When you think of testosterone levels, you probably don’t think of dropping levels for women.
“I’m a woman. What do I need testosterone for?”
The answer may surprise you! Testosterone aids in the growth and maintenance of your reproductive tissues. And it also impacts bone mass and human behavior.
Most importantly, testosterone has a significant impact on your energy level.
DHEA builds bone and muscle. Providers link the decline of DHEA as we age to muscle weakness.
Fatigue symptoms in people of all ages can also be caused by low thyroid function due to nutritional deficiencies. An autoimmune thyroid disease called Hashimoto’s thyroiditis produces a hormone imbalance that can bring on fatigue symptoms.
And, of course, there’s stress. Stress negatively affects hormone levels in people of all ages and genders and can knock you out.
Bringing Back the Balance With BHRT
If fatigue is ruining your life, it’s easy to find out if a hormone imbalance is causing your fatigue symptoms. A provider specializing in hormone imbalances can help you determine if you may benefit from Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).
Hormone replacement therapy is exactly what it sounds like- replacing the hormones that are missing so that your hormone levels are back to where they should be.
Determining a hormone imbalance is as simple as taking a medical history, looking at symptoms, and going over lab results. If your provider confirms an imbalance, then they can customize a treatment plan for you.
It’s Not Synthetic Hormone Replacement Therapy
For instance, bio-identical hormones are identical to human hormones.
- Fit perfectly with receptor cells
- Metabolize normally
- Perform tasks like human hormones
However, synthetic or conjugated hormones are not the same as human hormones. For example, they have the following differences: they have serious side effects and risks.
- Molecular structure
- Receptor affinity
- Absorption capabilities
- Other than their functional traits
Let’s Talk Pellet Method
BHRT comes in a variety of forms, including:
- Implanted pellets
Dr. Norton prefers the pellet method. Why? With pellets, you receive a customized blend of hormones explicitly made for your needs.
You don’t have to deal with messy creams or gels, and you don’t have to remember to apply them or take them every day. During an in-office procedure, the practitioner inserts the tiny pellets into the fatty tissue just under your skin.
Your body prompts the pellet to release hormones when it needs them, based on physical exertion or mental stress. Super simple and effective!
Choosing the Right Provider
Moreover, part of successful BHRT treatment is selecting the right provider. So, select a provider that:
- Specializes in BHRT
- Understands the need for balanced hormone levels
- Treats you as an individual
- Determines the root cause
- Creates a custom treatment plan
