Bioidentical Hormones for Women

Bioidentical Hormones for Women

In my mid-30s, I was irritable all the time. I was moody. I was depressed.  I was so tired I could barely go to work. I would have to take a nap every day at lunchtime just to make it through the rest of the day. That’s how bad I’d gotten. 

They say “you got your life back.” I did get my life back, plus my husband got his wife back!

The Hotze Health & Wellness Center is one of the founders in treating with bioidentical hormones in the United States and as such, along with our combined years of medical experience, has become the expert in dosing bioidentical hormones for women. We have treated thousands of women successfully with the approach that each one is unique and must be treated accordingly.

Menopause Symptoms
As women age, their naturally occurring sex hormones decline often leading to the following symptoms:

  • fatigue
  • weight gain
  • migraines
  • night sweats
  • brain fog
  • depression
  • hot flashes
  • loss of libido
  • osteoporosis
  • insomnia
  • anxiety

The median age of onset for perimenopause is 47.5 years and most women spend one-third to half of their life in post menopause. This is a large portion of your life and health dependent upon how your body acclimates to the change of life.

Perimenopause Symptoms
Women who are still menstruating typically suffer from the following symptoms:

  • irregular menstrual cycles
  • heavy periods without clotting
  • menstrual cramps
  • ovarian cysts
  • uterine fibroids
  • endometriosis
  • premenstrual breast tenderness
  • fluid retention and weight gain
  • anxiety
  • panic attacks
  • depression
  • mood swings
  • migraines
  • decreased libido

Causes of Hormonal Imbalance in Women
These symptoms are both the results of living in an estrogen laden environment as well as the inevitable result of the aging process when hormone levels typically decline. Women also experience an imbalance in their hormone levels at certain trigger points during their life such as puberty, after discontinuing birth control pills, after tubal ligation or hysterectomy, or simply as a woman moves through her menstrual life and into menopause.

Traditional Medicine’s Approach to Hormonal Decline
Traditional medicine would have you believe there are only two options: surgery, usually a hysterectomy, or prescription drugs, most often counterfeit hormones such as Premarin or Prempro, that actually worsen the problem and have many risks. In the case of many young women experiencing cyclical problems, that symptoms can only be resolved with birth control pills. There is another way. One that works with your body rather than against it. There are many myths people believe about bioidentical hormones and few physicians are mentioning that bioidentical hormones for women might be the answer to their symptoms.

A Drug for Every Symptom is Not the Answer
It is common for traditional doctors to prescribe prescription drugs for each symptom a patient is experiencing, such as sleep medication, anti-anxiety medications, and antidepressants. None of these drugs solve the underlying cause of the problem. When the cause is a hormone deficiency, why would you take a prescription drug, which is foreign to the human body, when what you really need is the very hormone you are missing?

Our Natural Approach to Hormonal Balance
Would you like to get rid of these symptoms all the while preventing osteoporosis and decreasing your risk for breast cancer? The key lies in balancing your hormones. We replace what is missing. It’s as simple as that.

At Hotze Health & Wellness Center, our approach is to correct these imbalances by replenishing the bioidentical hormones for women such as progesterone in pre-menopausal women and with both bioidentical progesterone and estrogen in post-menopausal women. These bioidentical hormones for women are molecularly identical to your body’s naturally occurring hormones. Just as we are each made with unique fingerprints, we are also each designed with estrogen and progesterone levels that are optimal for us as individuals. We work with you to find your body’s natural sweet spot by beginning with the lowest dose and slowly increasing until symptoms are resolved and your body is back in balance.

It’s just common sense.
If your body is missing something, wouldn’t you rather replace it with exactly the same thing that it is missing? If you lose the key to your house, you would replace it with the exactly same key so that it will fit into the lock. You wouldn’t replace it with a different shaped key, or it wouldn’t work. So why put something foreign into your body instead of what it really needs?
