Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is designed to treat individuals who suffer from PMS, menopause/andropause, loss of sex drive, chronic fatigue, insomnia, depression, weight gain and more. All of these are associated with hormone imbalances and can be treated with FDA approved bioidentical hormones.

"We age because our hormones decline. Our hormones do not decline because we age." This is the mantra for the Neuroendocrine theory of aging. Hormones are chemical substances in our bodies that are released to have an effect on tissues somewhere else in the body.

 
They act as biochemical messengers. They turn on cell functions and turn off cell functions. Gene expression can be altered by the presence or absence of hormones. Hormones control our responses to illness by controlling our immune system, our responses to stress, our sexual development, our growth and our metabolism. When hormone levels are balanced and at optimal levels in our bodies, we are more likely to enjoy good health provided our lifestyle choices are also healthful".

How do you break a bad habit?
Keep track of the behavior by writing down what happens, the situation at the time, and what you were thinking and feeling. Think about what you wrote down and see what this habit does for you and if it is a reaction to anger, anxiety, boredom or stress. Gaining insight into your habits is the first step to getting them under control so that you can live a healthier life! Don't forget to get support from others!
