The key is to understand and correct hormone imbalances

Each person has their own hormone balance, and the right level of hormones for one person is not necessarily right for all.  Symptoms can offer evidence of hormone imbalance, but the cause of the symptoms cannot be known without testing. For example, anxiety symptoms could be a result of a progesterone and estradiol imbalance, too much of the stress hormone cortisol, or even dietary issues. It is important to understand the causes before seeking the treatment, At EvolveWell, we work diligently with our clients to determine the underlying causes of hormone-related symptoms before undertaking treatment.

Once the likely cause of hormone-related symptoms has been uncovered, lifestyle and dietary changes, natural supplements, and bio-identical hormone therapy may be used help to restore optimal health. Understanding and correcting hormone and nutritional imbalances helps reduce, and even prevent, illness and diseases as you age.

Hormone restoration ensures the body has optimal levels of each hormone. Hormone imbalance,-deficiency or excess- may contribute to a wide range of symptoms in both women and men and even play a role in many chronic diseases. The integration of BHRT (Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy) into your health plan can help create long-lasting hormone health.

Bioidentical hormones are defined as hormones that are identical to those produced by the human body.  These hormones may be compounded or available in patented prescription products.

TIRED OF SUFFERING NEEDLESSLY?

Are you tired of suffering from hot flashes, night sweats, poor sleep, low libido and sexual function, fatigue, weight changes, loss of muscle, hair loss, mood changes, weight gain, loss of memory and brain function, loss of energy and menstrual cycle changes? Restoring/balancing hormones through Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can help relieve symptoms and improve your quality of life.

BHRT for Women

Hormone imbalance- deficiency or excess- may contribute to many problematic symptoms for women.

PROGESTERONE/ESTROGENS-PMS/FERTILITY/PERIMENOPAUSE.

The imbalance may result in infertility, PMS, heavy, crampy periods, irregular menstrual cycles, sleep disturbance, anxiety, weight gain, night sweats, and hot flashes., headaches, breast tenderness, and mood changes.

MENOPAUSE-ESTROGEN, PROGESTERONE, DHEA AND TESTOSTERONE

The changes in hormone levels in menopause may lead women to experience hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, depression, anxiety, other mood changes, vaginal dryness, loss of sex drive, bone loss, memory loss, skin changes, weight gain, sarcopenia, osteopenia and osteoporosis, and inflammation.

CORTISOL & DHEA

Cortisol is often called the ‘stress’ hormone because it is produced in response to physical, emotional, or psychological stress. Cortisol released through the stress response has a major impact on hormone balance throughout the lifespan. Cortisol is involved in every major illness and disease including neurodegenerational diseases, mood disorders, osteoporosis, and cancer.

TESTOSTERONE

Testosterone is very important for both men and women. Low testosterone may contribute to decreased sexual function, loss of libido, bone loss, muscle loss, and fatigue. High testosterone in women may result in polycystic ovaries and/or problems with insulin-glucose metabolism (Metabolic Syndrome/Insulin Resistance). Symptoms of testosterone imbalance may include acne, irritability, weight gain, increased facial and bodily hair growth, scalp hair thinning/loss.  *Note that low DHEA can lead to low testosterone.

BHRT for Men

Hormone imbalance- deficiency or excess- may contribute to many problematic symptoms and health issues for men.

TESTOSTERONE

Research tells us that testosterone levels (and sperm counts) have been declining over the last few decades.

Men typically experience a slow decline in testosterone as they age; however, we are seeing more men in their 20’s and 30’s who are experiencing low testosterone. Low testosterone in males can result in low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, insomnia, weight gain, bone and muscle loss, depression, and apathy.

Do you experience:

  • Erectile dysfunction?
  • Reduced sexual desire?
  • Fatigue or decreased energy levels?
  • Muscle loss?
  • Weight gain?
  • Mood changes or depression?
  • Trouble sleeping?
  • Lower motivation or drive?

The above symptoms can be a sign of low testosterone levels. Low testosterone is treatable, and EvolveWell practitioners can help.

ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION (ED)

Most men have problems with their erection at some point in life. Research shows that 55% of males of 55 years-old have some erectile dysfunction (ED). Our medical team approaches your sexual health from a total health perspective. We are here to provide you with everything that you need to pursue your best life, and we realize that sexual health is an important aspect of overall health.

ESTROGEN

The body converts testosterone into estradiol, a type of estrogen. An excess of the stress hormone cortisol drives that process. When too much testosterone is converted into estradiol, low testosterone symptoms such as decreased sex drive, breast enlargement, increased belly fat, tiredness and depression may occur. The imbalance created correlates with an increase in inflammation, which is the root cause of many diseases.

CORTISOL

When levels of cortisol are too high, the effect of other hormones is disturbed. In men, high cortisol can suppress testosterone production, causing men to have low testosterone symptoms even when their testosterone level is normal. It is common for men to have low testosterone and low DHEA at the same time.

ADRENAL FATIGUE TREATMENT (ADRENAL DYSREGULATION)

The adrenal hormones cortisol and DHEA are essential to the proper functioning of all hormones.

Cortisol is one of the main hormones released during times of physical and emotional stress. Extended periods of stress can result in high cortisol levels.

Since cortisol influences blood sugar balance, immune function, sleep, mood issues, along with weight gain or loss, the importance of having cortisol in balance with other hormones cannot be overstated.

The adrenal glands also produce DHEA, and it’s needed to make other hormones, including testosterone.

Assessment and balance of cortisol levels and patterns are essential to health and wellness.

THYROID HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY

Thyroid hormones support metabolism and energy. Standard laboratory thyroid tests are often insufficient to identify all cases of low thyroid function. Using the latest research, our team of functional medicine practitioners will interpret your test results tests to ensure your thyroid health.
