What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a natural way to treat hormone imbalance caused by menopause, pre-menopause or PMS symptoms.

Other Hormone Imbalances

Adrenal Imbalance

The adrenal glands are glands that are above your kidneys. The adrenals produce cortisol in response to stress. High low levels if cortisols lead to many problems. The secretion of cortisol is cyclical. The highest levels of corsol are in the early morning and the lowest levels are at night. We call this a circadian rhythm. We can easily check your levels with a Saliva Cortisol Test. One example of a symptom caused by Adrenal imbalance is poor sleep.

Thyroid Imbalance

The thyroid gland is in the front of your neck. The hormone it produces regulates/controls the metabolism (how fast your chemical process takes place) we call this the Metabolic rate. Ten percent (10%) of women age 40 and above have thyroid imbalance. Some symptoms related to thyroids malfunction can include; weight loss, weight gain, nervousness, fatigue, constipation just to name a few. A simple blood test can help you find out if you have Thyroid or Adrenal problems.
