Urinary problems are no joke. Losing your bladder can be inconvenient if not downright embarrassing. Urinary tract infections(UTI) are painful and frustrating.
You may have decided these are just problems you have to live with, but think again. These may just be symptoms of a root problem we can treat.
UTI’s: The Vicious Cycle
If you are a woman, at some point in your life, you’ve had a UTI. As you age, your vaginal acidity declines, which means you can expect to get more UTI’s that range from mild to severe.
If you’ve had UTIs, your provider probably put you on a regimen of antibiotics. Antibiotics work great for UTIs, but they also kill off some of the friendly bacteria that live in your vagina and urinary tract.
And antibiotics do nothing to bring vaginal acidity back up to normal levels. The cycle can also include a run of anti-fungal drugs. This can create a vicious cycle of repeated UTIs.
Don’t Get Caught Up
You don’t have to get caught up in this vicious cycle. And, you don’t have to put up with UTIs! What you need is a way to treat the root cause, so your body has the opportunity to regenerate and repair the urinary tract tissue.
Regeneration and repair make it more difficult for bacteria to penetrate the walls of your bladder while you do everything you can to bring your vaginal acidity back to normal. We can achieve this with bioidentical hormones and supplements.
Incontinence: The Inconvenient Leak
We’ve all had it happen. You cough, sneeze, or laugh and end up with a little dribble of urine in your panties. Your dribble may have become a bigger problem if you:
A weakened muscle in the bladder and urethra causes involuntarily leaking urine.
You can expect some incontinence during menopause because the overall health of these muscles and the pelvic floor are dependent on estrogen levels. As estrogen levels decline, we start to ‘leak.’
Restoring Your Levels
After we restore your hormones to optimum levels, your body restores normal blood flow to your urinary tissue and muscles that sustain and regulate the urinary frame. Bringing hormones back into balance is exactly what Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) does.
Let’s Talk Hormones
BHRT uses bio-identical – or human identical – hormones to add the hormones you lack back to your body. Manufacturers derive bio-identical hormones from natural, plant-based hormones. These hormones work more effectively and efficiently than synthetic hormones.
All Natural Hormones
They work better because they are molecularly identical to the hormones our bodies produce naturally. Our bodies know what to do with natural hormones and welcome them like long-lost friends.
Conversely, when synthetic hormones arrive on the scene, our bodies consider them invaders and don’t process them. That’s why many people who take synthetic hormones feel like they’re on an emotional roller coaster.
Here is a shortlist of hormone imbalance symptoms:
- A decline in your feeling of general well-being
- Joint pain and muscular ache
- Excessive sweating
- Sleep problems
- Increased need for sleep and often feeling tired
- Hot flashes
- Sleep issues
- Low libido
- Bladder issues
You can find a more comprehensive list and take a 30-second test to see if you have a hormone imbalance on our website.
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!
