Bio-identical hormone treatment: Not just for menopause

Bio Identical Hormone Treatment from Dr. Maddox

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is gaining attention as celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Jane Seymour, and Angelina Jolie speak candidly about their reasons for choosing this path. Treatment is commonly associated with reducing unpleasant symptoms of menopause. However, the benefits go far beyond easing hot flashes and mood swings. Bio-identical hormone treatment helps to restore the body’s natural balance for health and vigor.

What happens to hormones?

Hormones are chemical messengers created by endocrine glands. They control most bodily functions, from hunger to emotions, growth, insulin, sex drive, calorie burn, immune system, and much more. Hormone production surges during adolescence. It may fluctuate due to pregnancy or stress, but remains fairly stable through young adulthood.

Beginning as early as our 30s, most people begin to experience hormonal imbalance. Toxins in the environment and in our diets, medical conditions, and aging play a role. Hormonal imbalance takes a toll on every aspect of physical and emotional wellness, resulting in:

  • Hair loss
  • Insomnia
  • Low energy
  • Memory loss and difficulty concentrating
  • Mood swings and depression
  • Osteoporosis
  • Reduced libido
  • Weight gain

Like nature intended

As a Naturopathic Aesthetic Medicine Specialist, Dr. Adam Maddox is trained and experienced in creating individualized protocols to get hormonal balance back on track. The process begins with a thorough examination, evaluation of symptoms, and review of medical history. Clinical testing of saliva, urine, and blood is performed to analyze current hormone levels. Then, the Doctor prescribes supplements tailored to your body chemistry. These formulations are compounded with high quality, all natural (non-synthetic) ingredients providing hormones just like those produced by your own body.

Bio-identical hormone treatment may be prescribed alone, or as part of a comprehensive plan of rejuvenation, including nutritional counseling and anti-aging treatments for skin, hair, and body.

It is time to take control of hormone imbalance. Call (503) 928-6505 to schedule an appointment at Thrive.
