The hormone health connection to beauty..

What is hormone imbalance?

An imbalance occurs when there is too little or too much of a hormone. Your hormones are important for regulating many bodily processes including appetite, metabolism, sleep, reproductive cycles, sexual function, temperature and mood.

How to restore hormone imbalance?

The most effective and safe way to balance hormones is to restore them to physiologic levels with adequate nutrients and personalized bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. However hormone replacement is only one piece of the puzzle. Lifestyle factors such as exercise, nutrition, sleep and stress all affect our hormones and are important components of our overall well-being.

What are Bio-Identical hormones?

These are hormones that have the same molecular structure as our own natural hormones. As we age, our hormones decline, causing imbalances and unpleasant symptoms such as low energy, reduced memory, loss bone mass, loss of skin resilience and lowered mood and metabolism along with increased risk of various chronic illnesses. Bio-identical hormones can help to restore our hormones back to optimal levels resulting in improvement in symptoms and increased vitality. Non-bioidentical hormones like Premarin or provera, may be natural eg Premarin( extracted from pregnant horse urine) but have a different structure than our own hormones. Our Bodies aren’t equipped with the machinery to properly metabolize non-bioidentical hormones which can create unpleasant side effects and create certain health risks.

Are there advantages to Bio-Identical hormones and any anti-aging benefits?

-They are safer than non-bioidentical versions -The body can utilize and metabolize them in a similar way to our own natural hormones. -each formula is customized unique to the individual -hormones increase stem cells which help with repair and regeneration -A major culprit for skin thinning, wrinkling, and dryness associated with aging is the decline in hormones such as estrogen and progesterone in women, and testosterone in men

These materials are available on request.

If you're struggling with the loss of sleep, appetite, sexual function, or other symptoms that may come with age, bioidentical hormone treatment may be right for you. Our Ajax clinic for restorative medicine can help.


How Do Bioidentical Hormones Work?

A hormone imbalance happens when the body produces too much or too little of a certain hormone. Hormone imbalances occur naturally as we age, but this can cause unpleasant symptoms like mood swings, sleep imbalance, low metabolism, and many others.

Bioidentical hormones have the same structure as our natural hormones, making them easier to metabolize. This reduces health risks and side effects that may come with non-bioidentical hormones.


Restore Hormone Balance

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can help restore hormones to their optimal levels and combat those nasty side effects. This can leave you feeling rejuvenated, youthful, and overall happier. 

Combined with lifestyle changes like exercise and diet, BHRT can be extremely effective in combating the effects of aging.


Anti-Aging Benefits

BHRT is much safer than other therapies that use non-bioidentical hormones. Each formula is customized to the individual, optimizing chances of success and providing the best possible results. The hormone treatment also results in increased stem cells, which promote regeneration and skin repair. 

As women age, the decline in hormones like estrogen and progesterone can cause the skin and hair to thin and become dry. This can be combated with BHRT. Not only will you feel the effects of a more balanced hormone landscape, but you'll see them as well.
