Why Are Hormones So Important?
Some 50 hormones act as chemical messengers to help your body do what it needs to do when it needs to do it. Every essential organ, from the brain to the skin, depends on powerful signals to conduct the body’s functions. Endocrine disruptors from natural sources and environmental toxins alike can cause breakdowns in this communication ultimately affecting; our response to physical stress, metabolism, reproduction, growth, and development, and even cause cancer.
There is a need for hormone replacement therapy for women because many women begin seeing a decline in hormone levels in their mid to late 20s, and by mid to late 30s you might be feeling the uncomfortable symptoms. Fluctuations in these hormone levels can wreak havoc on a woman’s body and her emotional well-being. Correcting these problems requires an holistic approach like hormone replacement therapy for women.
Unfortunately, most traditional medical practices don’t take the time to find out WHY you don’t feel like yourself anymore. You may hear your doctor say “your levels are in range and look fine”, or “this is a normal part of the aging process”, then they proceed to write you prescriptions for antidepressants, anti-anxiety medication, sleeping pills, blood pressure medications, and other drugs that simply mask symptoms.Weight Gain & Loss of Muscle Mass
Current studies suggest that hormone imbalance is the leading cause of weight gain in women above the age of 35. Many women may experience physical changes and believe it is a natural part of the aging process. But, hormone therapy (HRT) can delay or even reverse these changes.
Body changes may occur if you have irregular hormone levels. Women who experience a decrease in muscle mass and a sudden increase in body fat may suffer from a hormone imbalance.Hormone imbalance musculoskeletal system also affected by these changes, as it can lead to muscle atrophy, osteoporosis, and pain in the muscles and joints. Hormone levels in a woman should be evaluated when there is an increase in body fat and weight without an increase in caloric intake. Disrupted Sleep
Frequent waking and/or insomnia have been attributed to hormone disruptions in women. The reason for this is not well known, but it is suspected that these imbalances are causing signals to the brain neurotransmitters, which are important for restful sleep, to become unstable. Although there are many causes of insomnia and unrestful sleep, hormone levels should be checked as a potential cause.Fatigue
A sudden drop in energy is a common complaint as a woman’s hormone levels drop. She may experience difficulty to do work or participate in activities that would normally be easy to do due to fatigue. Experiencing difficulty in getting out of bed in the morning, an increase need to take naps throughout the day, or have an overall feeling of being drained of energy are all possible signs that something is amiss. Normal daily activities don’t have to be a struggle. If you are experiencing energy levels throughout the day without any other explainable cause (such as adequate sleep or medical conditions) then hormone imbalance should be suspected as the culprit.Depression
Hormone imbalance can manifest as lack of motivation, depression and alternating feelings of sadness, happiness, or anger. Normal amounts of required hormones are essential in normal brain function and mood stabilization. When lacking, a woman can experience an increase in anxiety, irritability, sleep disturbances, sadness, anger, and depression as a result. Sadly, these symptoms are commonly misdiagnosed and treated with antipsychotic medications- when in fact HRT can treat these mood-based symptoms.Hair Loss
Another role of healthy hormones is to support hair production and maintenance. When imbalanced, women may experience thinning or patchy hair and in severe cases complete scalp baldness. Although not as obvious, an increase or decrease in body hair may also be seen.

Not only did they melt the pounds off like butter, this reduction in fat mass coincided with lowered blood pressure, reduced triglyceride levels, and improved cholesterol ratios.
Another study demonstrated that testosterone therapy resulted in impressive increases in both strength and muscle gains in combination with a resistance training regimen.
