Hormonal Imbalance Symptoms in Women
Natural Bioidentical Hormone Replacement (BHRT) for Women
Regardless of age, a woman's hormones all work together like a symphony; if one part of the orchestra is not functioning properly, then the melody you produce is out of tune. Signs of hormonal imbalance in women are a very real quality of life issue. All women need to be aware these signs of hormone imbalance.
Over the last 100 years as we have doubled our life expectancy, the soft tissue glands which create our hormones are being forced to produce them longer than ever. Our increasingly stressful lives, worsening nutrition and lack of proper fitness combine to result in declining levels of hormones in our bodies.
Millions of women in the United States are suffering from hormonal imbalance, whether it is early menopause, perimenopause symptoms, perimenopause weight gain, adrenal fatigue, menopause, or premenstrual symptoms (PMS). In many cases, bioidentical hormone therapy is the solution.

There is Relief
The above symptoms of hormonal imbalance in women can indicate any one of the conditions of menopause and her ugly sisters (perimenopause and postmenopause), surgical menopause, thyroid health and adrenal fatigue. Hot flashes, night sweats, trouble sleeping and weight gain are the most common symptoms of hormonal imbalance as a woman ages. Perimenopause weight gain is often times misdiagnosed and is one of the first signs of hormonal imbalance. These signs of menopause or early menopause and related conditions are also connected to your stress levels, poor nutrition, lack of exercise and the environmental toxins your body is exposed to on a daily basis. But regardless of condition, these symptoms could mean that you have a hormone imbalance. If you are experiencing these symptoms, getting tested by a highly trained bioidentical hormone doctor in order to discover the current levels of your hormones, could be the solution you have been seeking. Once we know your results, we can find that beautiful melody and relieve you of premenopause symptoms and menopausal symptoms; you do not have to live with them! You will be healthier, happier, and free to enjoy your life without the inconvenience and frustration of symptoms resulting from premenopause, menopause, or any of the others.
Wired Wellness Physicians use only bioidentical hormones, which are identical to the body's natural chemistry. These physicians provide natural female hormone replacement treatment plans that support women suffering the symptoms of perimenopause, menopause whether due to age or a hysterectomy, adrenal fatigue, and thyroid disorders by using bioidentical hormone therapy to live the best life possible.
Hormonal imbalances are the root of many chronic health problems and can increase your risk of serious disease. In women, the symptoms often first appear in perimenopause or menopause, when estrogen, progesterone and testosterone production begins to diminish.
The good news is that hormone losses and imbalances are correctible. Through the use of bioidentical hormones, women can not only be relieved of the symptoms, but also effectively protect themselves against osteoporosis and heart disease. And through supervised treatment, natural hormone replacement therapy can make women feel healthier, and younger than they have in years.
Hormones and Cancer
Many women are scared off by connections that have been made between hormones and cancer. It is important to understand that these studies link synthetic hormones to breast cancer, ovarian cancer and uterine cancer. There have been no studies that look only at bioidentical hormones and cancer. This is because the studies are expensive and the manufacturers of synthetic hormones provide the synthetics for free. Bioidentical hormones are created by a compound pharmacy to match an individual's body chemistry, so the hormones cannot be used for studies unless they have been matched to each of the participants. It is also important to note that a woman's natural estrogen has essentially no connection to endometrial cancer and bioidentical hormones, unlike synthetic hormones, are identical to a woman's natural estrogen. Synthetic estrogen has been found to increase a woman's chances of developing these various cancers. Some of those risks were dimmed with the addition of synthetic progesterone, but still it was balancing a risky synthetic hormone with another synthetic hormone. High levels of estrogen are linked to breast cancer. These high levels can occur when your progesterone is too low, not uncommon in menopause, and when synthetic estrogen replacement therapy is being used. Bioidentical hormones and breast cancer have been found to have no negative correlation; in fact, bioidentical hormones reduce the risk of breast cancer by correcting the menopause hormone imbalance. Bioidentical hormones risks are by no means equal or even similar to synthetic hormones.

What are Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are an exact replica of the hormones that are naturally produced by the body; matching the body's natural hormones molecule by molecule.
How are Bioidentical Hormones made?
Bioidentical hormones for womenare female hormones made in a laboratory and are based on compounds found in plants (usually soy beans or wild yams). Unlike supplements containing soy or wild yam extract, bioidentical hormones are processed by a highly trained compounding pharmacist. Compounding pharmacists provide medications that have a customized formulation to meet a patient's specific health care needs. Once the plant-based hormone is processed, its structure is identical to the estrogen, progesterone, and androgen hormones produced naturally by one's body. This is what makes bioidentical hormones naturaland is the reason why our bodies can metabolize them naturally as it was designed to do, with minimal or no bioidentical hormones risks or side effects. These hormones come in various forms including tablets, under the skin pellets, creams, gels, and nasal sprays.
Why not Synthetic Hormones?
Synthetic hormones are made from plant progesterone and animal estrogens, but are not identical to the hormones your body uses (generally an extra covalent bond or molecules are added so that it can be patented). Synthetic hormones act as toxins since their chemical makeup cannot be metabolized properly. This is why traditional hormone replacement therapy adverse side effects that in many cases are worse than the symptoms that are being treated. Synthetic hormones offer a one-size-fits-all solution to varying individual problems. It is not uncommon for the wrong hormone to be prescribed because a certain hormone imbalance was mistakenly assumed (i.e., assuming a women needs estrogen when she in fact needs progesterone). In comparison, the compounded bioidentical hormones that Wired Wellness Physicians offers are carefully matched individually to each woman's needs - something that is not possible with synthetic hormones. This means little or nobioidentical hormones risks and immediate relief to intolerable symptoms.
Body chemistry contains far too many factors to be looked at with a broad brush. Hormones work together like a symphony; a problem with just one hormone, or instrument, throws off all of the others. Synthetic hormones attempt to correct or change a hormone in a vacuum, without consideration for how it will affect and interact with the other hormones in the body.Bioidentical hormones for women grant harmony or relief by treating the entire symphony of female hormones.
