AZ Wellness specializes in Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
At Arizona Wellness Center, we do more than just measure estrogen and progesterone and prescribe bio-identical hormones: We also see an intimate connection in the function of all hormone systems in your body. We call these systems The Three Pillars of Hormone Health.
THE ADRENAL GLANDS
- Testosterone (in females)
THE THYROID GLAND
- T4 & T3 hormones
THE OVARIES AND TESTES
- OVARIES producing estrogen, progesterone & testosterone
- TESTES producing testosterone
If one system is out of balance, it will affect the other two systems.
Therefore, it is necessary to evaluate the health of all three hormone systems. For example, you can correct a woman’s sex hormone imbalance, but if her thyroid or adrenal glands are not functioning properly, she may still experience undesirable symptoms. Our goal is to bring each pillar of hormone health into balance.
Believe it or not, hormones influence every aspect of your body’s function. Wrong messages are communicated in the body when too much or too little of a hormone is produced. Resulting in symptoms and most often, health problems.
It’s simple because hormones play a critical and essential role in every aspect of your body’s functions.
Hormones can rejuvenate, regenerate and restore. They are powerful chemical messengers that circulate throughout the body and travel to specific cells to orchestrate many vital internal functions. But even a small fluctuation in hormone levels can cause big changes at the cellular level—or disrupt the delicate balance throughout your entire body. Too much or too little of a hormone can have serious consequences for your overall health and well-being.
Maintaining this delicate hormone balance is one reason to be cautious when selecting hormone replacement therapy. The goal should always be the hormonal balance that is predicated on research rather than experimentation or guessing. Many therapies merely attempt to replenish estrogen and/or progesterone and testosterone, but they never achieve homeostasis.
Any endocrinologist will tell you that hormone balance is the foundation of health. Research continues to demonstrate that hormones are the key to the intricate interrelationships of the body’s systems. They play a pivotal role in our overall health.
You can see why hormone fluctuation and depletion during perimenopause, menopause, and andropause wreak havoc on the body. Research repeatedly points to the relationship between the hormone imbalance in perimenopause, menopause, and andropause and an increased risk of developing cancer, osteoporosis, stroke, thyroid malfunction, and other age-related disorders.
It’s considered the norm for men and women to experience a decline in health at this stage of the aging process. Both women and men are likely to experience problems such as depression, anxiety, memory loss, sleep disturbances, libido issues, and sexual dysfunction, just to name a few of the issues.
You do not have to suffer through these life-altering symptoms! Help is available—naturally and safely— You’ll find a more thorough explanation about how hormone pellet therapy works to alleviate the common symptoms of perimenopause, menopause, and andropause in the many articles on this site.
