- Have you been dragging around? Suffering from bone and muscle pain?
- Wondering why your hair is falling out?
- Or getting sick more often than you used to?
Many people attribute these conditions to aging and choose to tough it out. However, there may be another solution.
Furthermore, these conditions may be signs of an underlying imbalance or deficiency that could easily be treated!
Let’s Start With Vitamin D
Surprisingly, almost 95 percent of Americans are not getting enough vitamin D. And this is bad news as nearly every cell of the human body needs Vitamin D to thrive.
Vitamin D is unique in that your skin uses sunlight to produce it. That means if you have darker skin or are over the age of 50, your body may have more difficulty producing its own Vitamin D.
When this happens, you may end up with a Vitamin D deficiency. Symptoms of a deficiency include:
- Feeling tired or fatigued
- Getting sick more often
- Bone and muscle pain
- Wounds are slow to heal
- Bone loss
- Hair loss
Vitamin D also protects your body from a variety of medical conditions, including:
- Heart disease and high blood pressure
- Infections and immune system disorders
- Falls in older people
- Multiple sclerosis
- Colon, prostate, and breast cancers
- Neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease.
So, the good news is that it is easy to check your Vitamin D levels and get a boost if you need it. Sometimes the solution is as simple as getting more sun on your skin or taking a supplement.

If It’s Not a Vitamin D Deficiency, It Could Be a Hormone Imbalance.
Many of the conditions and symptoms caused by Vitamin D deficiency are also the same conditions caused by hormone imbalance.
You’ll see several shared symptoms in this 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
- Physical exhaustion/lacking vitality
- A decrease in muscular strength
- Depressive mood
- Sexual problems
- Bladder problems
- Joint and muscular discomfort
You can find a more comprehensive list- – and even take a 30-second test to see if you have a hormone imbalance on our website.
Hormone imbalances can be diagnosed and treated with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) uses bio-identical – or human identical – hormones, which are derived from natural, plant-based hormones to bring your body’s hormone levels back into balance.
