Understanding the ketogenic diet.
Whether you’re going through menopause or you’ve experienced a female malady and had your uterus removed, your estrogen levels may be low.
However, it isn’t enough to reignite your waning flame by taking estrogen alone. Estrogen is critical as it can help put out the fire of common symptoms such as night sweats, hot flashes and vaginal dryness. If you’re hoping to further combat other annoyances such as mood swings, breast tenderness, difficulty with weight loss and headaches, you may want to look into balancing all of your hormone levels with natural hormone replacement therapy.
Balanced hormone levels are critical, especially as women age. Proper levels can influence the body’s metabolism and prevent the body from gaining weight. It can also impact a person’s physical appearance and reduce a woman’s chance of serious health risks such as heart disease and osteoporosis. But when it comes to hormones, the key word is ensuring that they are balanced. This means that everything is in perfect harmony. But when estrogen is used alone it won’t keep levels in check. As a matter of fact, you don’t want your body to be dominant in this area either. With the help of your physician, you’ll be able to keep your hormone levels just right. If you’ve already begun your hormone replacement journey, you may have done so in hopes of eliminating both your perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms.
What if your body feels like it’s still missing something? You may experience forgetfulness or find it difficult to sleep through the night. You may also experience a lack of sex drive. If you ignore the symptoms at the various stages of perimenopause and menopause, you may find your body aging at a rapid progression. When used solely, estrogen has a greater chance of decreasing the body’s testosterone levels because it increases a hormone called sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). When it binds with testosterone, then testosterone can’t be used for other critical roles in the body. Testosterone is needed to burn fat, boost lean body mass and a better libido. It can also boost your memory and keep your bones from breaking and becoming brittle. If you’re starting to see my point, you’ve realized that you need to go beyond the sole usage of estrogen. There are other natural hormones needing to be replaced such as testosterone, progesterone and DHEA to help you feel your optimum best. You don’t want to miss out on the best part of your life because your body is not in balance. Taking charge of your life and getting it back in balance is easy as 1, 2, 3. First, you need to recognize the changes you’re going through and come to terms that you don’t feel the way you used to. Second, you need to have your hormone levels tested. My preferred method is by having your levels tested for accuracy using saliva. Third, you need to begin a balanced combination of natural hormone replacement therapy that is designed just for your body, and it’s specific needs. Come in for your hormone consultation today, because there’s no better way to take charge of your health than taking the first step.
