Hormones for Women and Men

© 2014 Dr. Sharon Norling

Women, are you experiencing anxiety, depression, difficulty sleeping, pain, fatigue, brain fog, hot flashes, vaginal dryness AND low libido? Do you experience lack of energy, carbohydrate cravings, lack of motivation, headaches, muscle weakness, and difficulty losing weight? These symptoms may be due to estrogen, progesterone, or testosterone deficiency. They may also be due to low thyroid, an adrenal imbalance, or a neurotransmitter imbalance.

Men are you experiencing loss of energy, irritability, loss of muscle mass, weight gain, loss of libido, loss of a morning erection and depression? Men may also experience a gradual decline in testosterone or other hormones and notice irritability, decline in libido, osteoporosis, and depression. These symptoms are not a sign of growing older or just in your head. These are the result of hormonal imbalance and can occur at any age.

Recent research shows that low testosterone can increase the risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD), insulin resistance and increased mortality from CVD and cancer.

Hormones are in our body for good reasons. All of your moods, emotions, mental function, and physical health are affected by your hormone balance. Hormone balance must include the sex hormones of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone but also thyroid, adrenal and neurotransmitter hormones. All these systems and hormones interact and support each other.

To get the best results and achieve optimum health these systems must be tested and treated appropriately using specific targeted natural amino acids, nutrients, and Bio-identical Hormone therapy. Bio-identical Hormones are a natural effective hormone replacement without the side effects of typically prescribed pharmaceutical drugs.

You deserve to feel healthy and happy. Your life depends on it. One of the most important keys to your health and happiness is balancing your hormones. Hormones are in our body for good reasons. All of your moods, emotions, mental function, and physical health are affected by your hormone balance.

Frequently pharmaceutical drugs are prescribed for mood disorders without satisfactory results and resulting in many side effects. The side effects are too many to list here but include sedation, lack of coordination, impaired memory and cognition, sexual dysfunction and, after chronic use, physiological dependence and the potential for addiction. These drugs are often prescribed without even testing the neurotransmitters or hormones. Nationally certified and highly respected labs are available to do specialized testing.

Hormones and neurotransmitters can be balanced using natural amino acids and targeted nutrient therapies. The patient and the lab results improve.  Bio-identical Hormones are a natural effective hormone replacement. Testing is the key to being able to treat the person as an individual and support their overall well being for optimal health.
