Bioidentical Hormones & Your Health
Anti-aging medicine looks at the body holistically. An anti-aging practitioner working with a patient that has multiple symptoms, will look for the root cause of those symptoms rather than treating each symptom separately. For illnesses that are rooted in hormonal imbalances, Susan Prendergast may recommend Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to address the imbalances at their source. Treating imbalanced hormones in this way eases each of the uncomfortable symptoms of hormonal imbalance with one medication rather than a different medication for each different symptom.
Since anti-aging practitioners view health holistically, they tend to work outside the one-size-fits-all approach. Recognizing each individual has unique needs and body chemistry, Susan Prendergast creates personalized Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy programs that addresses your unique imbalances. This type of personalized hormone therapy corrects the levels of numerous important hormones in your body. Some of the hormones that can regain balance with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy include:
- Thyroid Hormone
Imbalances within these hormones can be the root cause for many different health disorders. Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are primary sex hormones that work to control sexual function, reproduction, vitality and youthfulness. Cortisol, DHEA, and pregnenolone are adrenal hormones that work to reduce inflammation, balance immunity, protect the nervous system and produce other hormones. The pineal gland and pituitary hormones include melatonin and thyroid hormone; they work to control sleep cycles and most aspects of energy and metabolic functioning. Typically, hormones decline or become imbalanced due to high stress, lack of sleep or aging. Some of the conditions that can be treated by balancing your hormones include:
- Adrenal Fatigue
- Chronic Fatigue
- Sexual Dysfunction
- Weight Loss Resistance
