How to Tell if You Have a Hormone Deficiency
The work that hormones do in your body is very subtle. You don’t really know that they are benefiting you, and it is very easy to take them for granted. It is not until something happens where your hormones go out of balance that you can tell there is a problem. Many people like to compare the work that hormones do in the body to the work that individual musicians do in an orchestra. In an orchestra, as long as everyone is playing together and in harmony, it’s difficult to pick out one instrument over another. However, if one instrument goes out of whack, then it’s easy to tell that something is wrong and that the entire melody has been thrown off. The same thing is true when it comes to hormone deficiency. Just a minor tweak in the way they are functioning and the effect may be felt throughout your entire body.
Some individuals who are dealing with a hormone deficiency find themselves battling to lose weight. Men and women in their early 40s may be trying every single diet under the sun and no matter how hard they diet and no matter how hard they control their fluid intake, they still cannot get rid of extra pounds. In addition to being able to control their weight, they find themselves dealing with things like issues with their skin, issues with their hair, and an overall lack of energy. Even after they have their morning tea or their morning coffee, they don’t have the energy that they need to attack life with a vigor that they need.
Many of these individuals eventually go to the doctor and have themselves tested. The doctor mentions that they have a problem with their thyroid or some other hormone production. Once the hormone deficiency is brought under control, they start to see an improvement in their energy level, they start to see an improvement in their weight control, their skin gets better, and their hair looks nicer.
There’s no reason for you to deal with untreated hormone deficiency. There is enough science and enough research out there where you should be able to find solutions to the problems that you are dealing with. Bioidentical hormone replacement is able to get your body functioning in a way that it should without producing negative side effects that synthetic hormones used to produce years ago.
Some of the more common hormonal imbalances include estrogen and testosterone imbalances. With both hormonal imbalances, it’s likely that you’re dealing with excess weight gain, difficulty when it comes to losing weight, a lack of energy, a loss of libido, a sense of lethargy, and an overall feeling of being unwell.
Many people are surprised at how much their life and their quality of life improves when they take the time to learn about hormone replacement.
