Do you feel tired all the time? Have you gained weight? If you’re having trouble losing weight, it could be your hormones.
As we age, women experience changes in our appearance and how we feel. Many women gain weight, lose their sex drive, experience hot flashes, suffer memory loss, become short-tempered, and find it difficult to sleep, along with various other symptoms.
At Refresh Medical Day Spa and Hormonal Health, we focus on Natural Bioidentical Hormone Replacement therapy using Bioidentical Hormone pellets. Each patient deserves a comprehensive evaluation and an individually tailored treatment regimen that is consistently and regularly optimized throughout the treatment process.
A hormone imbalance can have many symptoms. If you are experiencing one or a combination of the symptoms below, you might be a candidate for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement therapy:
- Weight gain
- Limited energy
- Hair loss
- Low sex drive
- Mood swings
- Poor concentration
Helps Memory Problems
In addition, hormone replacement therapy may protect women’s memory. Recent research from USC showed additional benefits of hormone replacement therapy. An article from Women’s Health gives an overview of the research:
The researchers found that women taking estrogen-only therapy had lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol and performed better on tests of “working memory” following exposure to stress compared to women taking a placebo.
“Our study suggests that estrogen treatment after menopause protects the memory that is needed for short-term cognitive tasks from the effects of stress,” said Alexandra Ycaza Herrera, the study’s lead author and a researcher at the USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology.
Earlier studies have pointed to potential health risks of the treatment. A combination therapy that uses both estrogen and progesterone has been linked to a higher risk of breast cancer, heart disease, stroke and blood clots.
