Both men and women can experience decreased hormone levels as they age, resulting in symptoms like weight gain, libido changes, and mood swings. At Refresh Wellness, we specialize in restoring and balancing these hormones. We promote well-being from the inside out, learning the individual needs of each of our patients in order to treat them with a customized wellness plan.
Women's hormones naturally decline as they age. Many women begin having symptoms of hormonal decline a full decade prior to menopause. There is no reason for women to suffer for years. By replenishing, balancing, and optimizing declining hormone levels, women can experience immediate relief of their symptoms safely.
Female Hormone Optimization
Hormonal imbalances in women can manifest in a number of ways. Some women report mood swings, depression, and anxiety. Others have trouble sleeping, a constant feeling of fatigue, or foggy thinking. Weight gain is common, especially in the stomach area, as well as sexual symptoms such as a decreased libido and vaginal dryness. In addition, women who are in need of hormone optimization may struggle with hot flashes and night sweats.
Aside from decreasing the negative effects of an imbalance, hormone optimization has a number of health benefits for women. It may strengthen bones and reduce the risk of osteoporosis as well as reduce the risk for certain types of cancer. It may also improve cholesterol, reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke, and improve the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin. Cognitive benefits include clearer thinking and lower risk of Alzheimer's and early dementia.
There is no need to wait until you have erectile dysfunction or gained 25 pounds before you start optimizing hormone levels. Patients in their late 30s and early 40s can benefit from hormone optimization right now.
Male Hormone Optimization
A hormonal imbalance in men can have many of the same effects as it can in women. Weight gain, irritability, depression, fatigue, and memory loss are all common symptoms. Men may also notice erectile dysfunction, decreased ambition, reduced muscle mass, and hair loss. Luckily, a hormone optimization can reduce or eliminate these problems.
Hormone optimization can improve a man's health in many ways. Properly balanced hormones boost the immune system, improving overall health and reducing the risk of many types of cancer. Improved mental cognition helps prevent the onset of Alzheimer's and dementia. Bone density is restored, and improved cholesterol helps reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.
