Understanding the Basics
When estrogen is out of balance it causes night sweats, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, anxiety, and even depression. Many women don’t know that these symptoms are not always caused by a deficiency, rather fluctuating levels of estrogen. Our therapy helps maintain this balance to drastically decrease, and in most cases eliminate these symptoms.
Often considered to be the most important in men, testosterone also plays an important role in a woman’s hormone balance. After the age of thirty, testosterone production decreases gradually, creating symptoms such as loss of libido, weight gain, mental fogginess, and loss of energy. In women who have had a hysterectomy, testosterone levels drop by one-half almost immediately after the surgery.
Progesterone deficiency can cause difficulty sleeping, hair loss, water retention, and depression. This hormone is commonly prescribed along with estrogen to protect the uterus.
