Hormones Used in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement
Serving as a building block for testosterone and estrogen, this adrenal hormone works to reduce body fat, triglycerides, cholesterol, and insulin resistance, while boosting energy levels, longevity, and overall health. Dwindling levels of DHEA often occur during a person’s forties or fifties; however, levels can be replenished with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Functioning to protect the integrity of the nervous system, pregnenolone also builds estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone. A lack of pregnenolone can increase moodiness, inflammation, fatigue, mental fogginess, and arthritic pain. Balancing pregnenolone with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can reduce deficiencies in sex hormones and improve the health of the nervous system.
Working as a primary male sex hormone, testosterone helps men and women to have adequate libido, muscle tone, strength, stamina and endurance, and energy. In men, healthy levels of testosterone may prevent erectile dysfunction and thinning hair. Restoring and balancing testosterone levels can help men and women to look and feel healthier.
Existing in three different forms in the body, estrogen is a primary female sex hormone that performs thousand of functions in the female body. Estrogen helps to detoxify the brain and promote healthy brain chemistry; therefore, it may prevent dementia, short and long-term memory loss, Alzheimer’s, and mental fogginess. Producing collagen is another function of estrogen that works to reduce wrinkles, grow strong nails, and promote lustrous hair. Deficiencies or imbalances in estrogen can lead to symptoms that include hot flashes, insomnia, night sweats, sagging breasts, thinning hair, wrinkling skin, and thinning bones.
As the second essential female sex hormone, progesterone works to counteract the many effects of estrogen. Progesterone works as a natural diuretic to prevent water retention and bloating, while regulating ovulation, pregnancy and birth, and the menstrual cycle. A lack of progesterone can lead to estrogen dominance, infertility, irregular periods, dysmenorrhea, amenorrhea, and frequent miscarriages.
Acting as a steroidal hormone released by the adrenal glands to reduce inflammation from stress, cortisol is an essential hormone. When a person feels emotional or physical stress, the adrenals release cortisol in order to wipe out the negative impact stress has on the body; however, in cases of chronic stress, cortisol can become deficient. Insufficient levels of cortisol can lead to increased infections, slower healing time, intolerances to stress, fatigue, weight gain, reduced metabolism, insulin resistance, and lower immune function.
Balancing blood sugar is the main function of insulin, which is produced and made in the pancreas. In cases of Type I Diabetes, the cells that produce insulin are attacked by the body, which makes this illness not preventable. However, Type II Diabetes is often brought on by poor lifestyle choices, such as diets high in sugar, lack of exercise and sleep, and high stress levels. In Type II Diabetes, the body stops recognizing the presence of insulin, making it ineffective. Improving dietary and exercise habits while balancing hormones can greatly improve insulin levels and prevent developing Type II Diabetes.
Symptoms from Estrogen Dominance had Taken Over and Ruined My Life
I am eternally in Dr. Crisp’s debt for what she has done for my sanity, my health, my marriage! I was so close to being dead, I wished that I were dead. At 37 my symptoms from estrogen dominance had taken over and ruined my life, what was left of it. My ob-gyn kept telling me I was fine, but depressed. He prescribed birth control pills for endometriosis! (The synthetic estrogen would have killed me.) A counselor tried to give me an anti-depressant. I was smart enough not to take either of them. And so it went for month after excruciating month. Then I found Dr. Crisp! My husband searched online after seeing Oprah’s show about bioidenticals. I did my saliva and blood test and saw Dr. Crisp in February. I had very high estrogen and low progesterone and low testosterone. Dr. Crisp prescribed bioidentical progesterone, estrogen and testosterone for me to help balance my hormone levels. I got my prescriptions filled immediately and noticed an overnight improvement! I was able to function without sleeping all afternoon just to get through four more hours of evening. I was astonished! And scared. I would be the real test. Up until seeing Dr. Crisp, I had to take narcotics every month on the first and second day of my period. March would be quite different! NOT ONE CRAMP! I didn’t feel anything. I bled normally and functioned and never felt it. From pain pills to nothing in one month! My husband still can’t believe it. To think that I almost scheduled a hysterectomy! I cannot say enough great things about BodyLogicMD and Dr. Crisp! I just wish it were covered by insurance so more of my friends could do it. Funny how the things that DON’T help are covered.
