Bioidentical Hormones can be used to treat a number of hormone-related conditions and symptoms:

Adrenal Fatigue is a syndrome that comes from being overstressed for an extended period of time. When a person is stressed for a long period of time, the adrenal glands may excrete excess cortisol, which can eventually burn out the adrenal glands.

Andropause is also known as male menopause, and it marks the stage in a man’s life when his testosterone levels take a steep decline to cause numerous symptoms.

Chronic Fatigue can greatly reduce the quality of life and may cause a person to feel constantly tired or lethargic. People may also experience muscle pains, headaches and memory loss.

Erectile Dysfunction happens to many men suffering from testosterone decline. Erectile dysfunction can begin as early as the mid-30s or 40s, and it may be helped with testosterone supplementation.

Fibromyalgia is characterized as all over body aches and soreness, soft tissue inflammation, fatigue, joint pain and depression.

Headaches can occur from imbalances caused during perimenopause, andropause, menopause and PMS. Headaches can range from tension headaches to migraines, and may be reduced with hormone supplementation.

Hot Flashes commonly occur during hormone decline, and they may cause a person to suddenly feel intolerably hot or flushed.

Hyperthyroid happens when the thyroid produces too much thyroid hormone. When this occurs, a person may experience heart palpitations, nervousness, weight loss, hair loss, fatigue and muscle weakness.

Hypothyroid occurs when the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone. Symptoms of fatigue, weight gain, aching joints, dry skin, a puffy face, increased sensitivity to cold and irregular periods may occur.

Insomnia occurs when hormone fluctuation disrupts the signals sent to the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus sets the body’s sleeping cycles, and cannot properly function with hormone imbalances.

Low Libido occurs with hormone decline, and it can negatively affect personal relationships. Hormone supplementation may be able to restore healthy libido.

Low Testosterone usually occurs during a man’s 40s or 50s. When a man hits the 30s, testosterone begins to drop; however, when it steeply declines, it marks the stage known as andropause.

Menopause officially begins when a woman has not had a menstrual period for 12 consecutive months. During menopause, the body shuts down reproduction, and this transition can cause the body to manifest numerous symptoms.

Mood Swings that consist of anger, anxiety, depression or sadness can occur with hormone fluctuations or decline.

Night Sweats can happen to men or women going through hormone decline. Night sweats can be defined as waking up in the middle of the night drenched in a cold or hot sweat.

Perimenopause is the time before menopause and may last from 4 to 6 years. Symptoms of perimenopause can begin as early as the 30s or early 40s.

PMS is accepted as being a “normal” part of menstruation; however, hormone imbalances can cause symptoms such as cramping, headaches, mood swings and cravings to be exacerbated.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) occurs when females have an excess amount of male hormones. Fluid filled sacs may form around the ovaries and cause infertility.
