Feel Like You Again!
Hormones influence every function and cycle in your body. From your sleep and mood to your sex drive and energy; from your appetite and metabolism; to your bone strength and muscle tone…they are constantly at work, acting as the messaging system for your entire body. Hormones are what keep you alive.
So when your body is no longer producing adequate levels of these essential chemicals, or when your hormones become unbalanced, it’s no wonder that women start experiencing symptoms that make them feel like a stranger in their own bodies. As women, we are especially susceptible to factors that are detrimental to our hormone balance, including: poor nutrition, lack of rest, emotional and physical stress, digestive system disturbances and toxins in our environment.
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is a natural way to rebalance hormones to help women feel younger and look younger. Since hormones are so essential to our body functioning in an optimum way, medical experts agree that carefully monitored BHRT helps to achieve a mind and body balance that allows women to age in a safer, healthier manner.
“After one day on bioidentical estrogen, I felt the veil lift. After three days, the sky was bluer, my brain was no longer fuzzy, my memory was sharper. I was literally singing and had a skip in my step.”
– Oprah Winfrey
CHIC’s Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women
Progesterone, estrogen (estradiol, estriol and estrone) and testosterone are important sex hormones that can dramatically affect the way we look and feel. In women, each of these hormones is produced in the ovaries as well as the adrenal glands. In addition to these hormones, which we most often hear about, there are many more hormones, including Cortisol, DHEA and thyroid which must also be kept in delicate balance.
Depleted hormone levels can be safely and gently replenished through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Using plant-based substances that match the hormones that are naturally produced in a woman’s body, health declines can be reversed and bothersome symptoms can be alleviated or completely eliminated. When the body has the hormone levels it needs and is supplemented with bio-identical hormones that can be easily metabolized, the mind, body and spirit connection is restored, so that the person enjoys more energy and vitality.
If you’re wondering if you are experiencing symptoms that could be related to hormone imbalance, consider the 6 “F”s of hormone imbalance: Fat, Fatigued, Frustrated, Foggy, Forgetful, and Frumpy.
