While it’s meant to be a joyful time, the fact is the holiday season can be a stressful time with overwhelming pressure, especially for women who bear the responsibility of hosting family gatherings, shopping for gifts, and keeping the holiday family calendar together. The busyness of the season can and, most often, does increase stress levels and lead to the adoption of unhealthy habits. Because of this, it’s important for women to understand the impact the holidays have on hormones and how hormone replacement therapy might be the answer.
It’s the season of non-stop errands and moving but this fast-paced time can have adverse effects of stress-related hormonal imbalance that will soon manifest in ways that will act as an alert system that it’s time for a break. Headaches, fatigue, bowel changes, anxiety, and cold extremities are just a few signs that your body might need a reset.
Natural hormone therapy can become an option when a hormonal imbalance begins to affect more than just the holidays but day-to-day life. Various hormones can wreak havoc on your body. Cortisol, progesterone, and estrogen are a few of the hormones that can affect your well-being when thrown out of whack.
They can trigger insulin spikes and cause the urge to eat high-calorie, nutrient-deficient foods. They throw off your gut health which can ultimately lead to weight gain. This hormonal imbalance can disrupt sleep, affect sex hormones, cause anxiety, make it hard to focus, and so much more. The good news is, there’s a solution.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
While there are lifestyle changes that can be made to begin the process of getting your hormones back in order, one of the most effective ways to balance hormones is through hormone replacement therapy. This is an especially good option for anyone who is currently or in the early stages of menopause.
At our San Antonio hormone therapy clinic, we specialize in natural hormone therapy using BioTe pellets. These pellets are developed from your own blood samples and made to replicate your hormones. We begin with a consultation followed by a full assessment to ensure you are a candidate for this type of natural hormone therapy.
From there, we’ll take samples and create a personalized treatment option that will be administered in a single appointment. Next, we’ll monitor your progress and discuss your results 4 weeks after your initial dose. Following your results, we’ll tailor your bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to your body’s needs and administer doses when necessary. The results are balanced hormones that will get you back to feeling yourself even if you’re in menopause.
