Hormonal imbalance is a very common issue for women as we get older. Health conditions including thyroid disorders, menopause, and low sex drive are all linked to out-of-balance hormone levels.   The symptoms of hormonal imbalance can be life-altering. These symptoms can include mood swings, insomnia, weight gain, and hair loss. Thanks to bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) treatments, women who are suffering from symptoms of hormone imbalance can now find relief – including better health and a higher quality of life. The treatments can safely and effectively restore a woman’s hormone balance with a comprehensive treatment plan.   Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance in Women   Hormones have an important role in many bodily processes. Your hormones affect your heart rate, metabolism, appetite, sleep patterns, sexual

Menopause - Whats So Scarey?   Many women dread the thought of menopause because they have "bought into" two common misapprehensions. The first is believing the "horror stories" they heard from their mothers and friends about the awful symptoms women must endure when they go through the "changes". Fortunately, not every woman will suffer with menopausal symptoms and many women pass through menopause without more than a few hot flashes.   The second misconception is that there is no safe and effective treatment for menopausal symptoms should the symptoms become so intolerable that they interfere with the quality of life.    It is safe to say that there is both effective and safe hormonal replacement therapy to alleviate suffering during menopause. The form of hormones and

Osteoporosis is a condition of gradual bone loss. “Osteo”, meaning bone, and “poros”, which is Greek for porous, refers to the loss of bone density. Osteoporosis is a bone disease occurring when the body loses too much bone, makes too little bone, or both.  Literally meaning “Porous Bone,” when viewed under a microscope, an osteoporotic bone seems to have much larger and more frequent “pores” than healthy bone. As bones become less dense, they weaken and are more likely to break.   Both women and men have increased risk of osteoporosis as they age, especially after age 50. The biggest reason for this is because hormone levels decline, specifically estrogen.  This is the most common cause of osteoporosis, as it accelerates bone

Because symptoms are so varied and often develop slowly over time, many individuals who struggle with an imbalance of thyroid hormones never get diagnosed. Conditions like hypothyroidism can fly under the radar for years as these seemingly small issues increase in severity and frequency.    Diagnosis can feel like a major relief, as it finally provides answers and offers a way forward. For those with hypothyroidism, that way is typically hormone replacement therapy (HRT). So how do you treat hypothyroidism with HRT?   Often, 5 simple steps can get you started on the road to recovery.   Step 1: Document Your Symptoms   Before discussing the health problems you’ve been experiencing with your doctor, it’s important to know exactly what you’ve been experiencing, how severe those symptoms are,

  There are two main types of testosterone available, synthetic and bioidentical. Both are manufactured and produced in a lab but the important part is how differently your body reacts to each.   Bioidentical testosterone duplicates the exact chemical and molecular structure of the naturally produced hormone. Therefore, the body thinks it is the real deal, and your body reacts as it should.   Synthetic testosterone does not have the same molecular structure as the naturally produced hormone, so it doesn’t quite fit the receptor. As a result, these hormones can cause unwanted side effects.   Testosterone molecules are a bit like keys to a lock; they have a 3D shape that perfectly fits the hormone receptors. When these molecules attach to the receptor it fits tightly,

Did your doctor recommend hormone replacement therapy, and you’re wondering if this is right for you? Maybe you have questions about the different types of hormone therapy and need some straight answers. Perhaps you want a natural treatment to fix the problem.   Both men and women come to Integrative Telemedicine for this therapy and are looking for real information. Most find interesting things online, but ultimately end-up being quite confused by everything they have found.   It makes total sense, and you’re not alone.
