What is Female hormone optimization?
The human body has a variety of hormones produced by the endocrine system that keep it running smoothly.
By far the most important hormones are estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.
Not only do these chemicals regulate normal functioning, but they’re also responsible for other changes in the body during puberty, procreation, and menopause. As you age, the levels of these chemicals start to taper off gradually.
Female hormone optimization is a kind of treatment for women that can balance the hormones using natural methods.
Common Symptoms of Low Hormone Levels
As you reach the age of 45 years, you may start to sense that you’re body is slowing down. And simple day-to-day tasks seem to get harder to do. Do any of these signs sound familiar?
Weight gain despite following a strict diet and exercise regimen
Difficulty in falling asleep and staying asleep
A decrease in muscle and bone mass
The onset of problems like hypertension and diabetes
Lowered libido and/or painful intercourse because of vaginal dryness
Hot flashes and sweating at night
Tenderness in the breasts
Irregular and/or heavy and painful periods
Mental fog and difficulty in concentration
Fatigue and chronic tiredness
Anxiety and depression
Hormone Optimization Is Not All Artificial
If you have been dealing with the typical symptoms of waning hormones, know that you don’t need to resort to chemical supplements for better health and wellness.
With a combination of nutritious food, regular exercise, and other lifestyle changes, you can continue to lead a normal life. Your doctor will organize a detailed program which is customized to meet your unique needs.
Here are some of the recommendations you might receive.
Eat balanced meals that include fiber-rich foods for regulating digestion and preventing excessive weight gain.
Look for foods that are natural sources of estrogen to balance your hormones. Like, for example, soy, nuts, flax seeds, and fruits like red grapes, oranges, and strawberries.
Add natural sources of fats to regulate hormones like leptin that control your appetite.
Get moderate exercise to alleviate stress levels. Do keep in in mind that workouts stimulate the production of serotonin, which is a feel-good hormone and can keep away depression.
Make sure to get a minimum of 8 hours of sleep each night. Use relaxation techniques like deep breathing and meditation, so you have a better quality of sleep.
If you smoke, now is a good time to quit. As for alcohol, restrict intake to a few glasses of wine each week.
Cut back on salt and sugary foods that can affect mood swings.
Female Hormone Optimization Using Plant-Based Medication
If you do need supplements, your doctor will devise medications that are formulated according to the specific hormone imbalances in your body. The exciting thing is that these medications are derived from plants and mimic natural hormones that your body produces. You can safely have them since they are unlikely to have any undesirable side effects.
Opt for plant-based or bioidentical female hormone optimization, and you’ll never have to worry about any changes your body is going through.
