Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal Fatigue

Hormone Imbalance In Women

Regardless of age, a woman's hormones all work together like a symphony; if one part of the orchestra is not functioning properly, then the melody you produce is out of tune. So, even when only one unbalanced hormone is present, it will adversely affect all the hormones including thyroid hormone, estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, and may result symptoms of menopausal, premenopause, or low thyroid.

Even when only one unbalanced hormone is present, it may result in various hormonal imbalance symptoms in women including:
 
  • Hot Flashes & Night Sweats
  • Weight Gain
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Low Libido
  • Vaginal Dryness
  • PMS
  • Mood Swings
  • Depression
  • Endometriosis
  • Fibrosis
  • Foggy Memory
 

The Adrenal Hormone Connection

The adrenal glands, two triangle-shaped glands that sit over the kidneys, are responsible for regulating the body's response to stress by controlling the hormones released during stress. The adrenal gland is responsible for controlling the production and release of hormones in response to stress, releasing cortisol and catecholamines help the body react quickly to stressful situations.  Cortisol is the main adrenal hormone and it is used to manage stress. When stress becomes chronic or is not well managed, the adrenal glands are unable to function optimally. The highest amount of cortisol is secreted by the adrenals in the morning to get us going, with levels decreasing throughout the day. The adrenals secrete cortisol in response to low blood sugar, stress, exercise, and excitement. Unfortunately many people today live extremely stressful lives which causes the adrenal gland to experience what is known as adrenal fatigue.  This can result in an imbalance of a variety of hormones.
 
It is important to know that Adrenal Fatigue goes hand in hand with both Thyroid dysfunction and Menopause.

The Symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue

Why Bio-identical Hormone?

The stress caused by hormone imbalance, namely in peri-menopause and menopause for women, is a huge contributor to adrenal fatigue. Bioidentical hormone therapy balances your hormones, including the hormones released during stress, with customized prescriptions that fit your body chemistry and what your body needs. This, combined with an individualized nutrition /supplement and fitness program, maintains normal hormone levels and can effectively eliminate the symptoms associated with menopause and perimenopause.
