Conditions Treated with Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

Brad Cummins, M.D. at RevitaLife MD Executive Wellness & Cosmetic Medical Center is a Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Doctor in Louisville KY that offers customized programs to men and women suffering from the conditions of hormonal decline. Treating a wide variety of conditions that are associated with hormonal imbalances, Doctor Cummins gets to the root of a specific health condition or symptom. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help relieve several conditions that are the result of hormonal decline. Doctor’s Cummin’s specialized Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy programs have helped countless men and women in the Louisville, Kentucky areas to regain their health and vitality.

Some of these conditions include:

Adrenal Fatigue

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can greatly improve the symptoms associated with adrenal fatigue syndrome. Adrenal fatigue is a stress related syndrome that occurs when prolonged periods of high stress wears down the adrenal glands, causing them to convert valuable sex hormones into cortisol, which is a hormone that counteracts the inflammation caused from stress. Symptoms of adrenal fatigue usually include mental and physical exhaust, salty food cravings, feeling burned out, feeling more awake after 6pm, trouble getting out of bed, and insomnia. Replenishing hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help men and women suffering from this condition to feel more awake, improve sleep, reduce mental fogginess, have more energy, and reduce food cravings.

Mood Swings

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help men and women to improve moods and reduce outbursts of anger, anxiety, depression, and sadness. Hormones affect brain chemistry, which affects moods. When hormones are at lower levels or are drastically fluctuating, men and women can experience moodiness and an overall reduced sense of wellbeing. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement can replenish hormones that promote receptors in the brain that transmit feelings of calmness and contentment, which improves overall moods.

Hormone Imbalance

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help to resolve hormone imbalances because it uses hormones that are identical in molecular and structural function to the hormones produced in the human body to replenish deficient hormones. Because hormones are associated with almost all bodily functions, a deficit can have negative effects on the body. Bioidentical Hormones can help people to restore hormone balance without the adverse side effects, and many people have been able to improve sexual desire and function, sleep, energy, emotions, muscle tone, mental cognition, bone health, and their overall sense of wellbeing through the use of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.

Night Sweats

Many women and men going through hormone decline experience night sweats. This is because the hypothalamus, which is the body’s temperature control center, gets mixed signals with hormone decline, and it cannot regulate body temperature. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help both men and women to balance their hormones and reduce hot flashes, cold chills, or night sweats, and it can also improve sleep.

Alopecia

Alopecia is a condition that causes a person to lose large amounts of hair on their scalp or body, and some of this hair loss may be hormone related. In women, hormonal fluctuations after pregnancy can lead to hair loss, and for women going through menopause or perimenopause, hair loss may also occur. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help women to reverse hair loss and grow thicker and more lustrous hair. In men, hair loss can occur during andropause, which is male hormone decline, and during this time, men may lose healthy testosterone, which leads to a rise in dihydrotestosterone. This type of testosterone kills healthy hair follicles, but Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help to reduce this form of testosterone by balancing free testosterone, which may prevent further hair loss.

Premature Aging

Doctors now agree that hormones are not lost due to aging, but that aging occurs because hormones are being lost. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help to supply the body with hormones that are becoming deficient to prevent or reverse the signs of aging. Many people have been able to maintain a more youthful appearance, improve muscle tone, increase libido and sexual function, grow thicker more lustrous hair, improve bone strength, lose weight, and increase overall energy levels with the help of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.

Chronic Fatigue

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is an autoimmune condition that is characterized with a feeling of mental and physical fatigue that lasts more than 24 hours. In this condition, people may also experience swollen lymph nodes, a chronic sore throat, body aches, flu-like symptoms, mental fogginess, and insomnia. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy may be able to help improve the immune system by replacing deficient hormones. Several people with Chronic Fatigue have been able to use Bioidentical Hormones to improve energy, sleep, and mental clarity and reverse the symptoms associated with chronic fatigue.

Insomnia

Many people suffer from sleeping issues, and a large percentage of people experiencing insomnia may be struggling with it as a result of hormonal decline. In women, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy has helped to regulate sleep disturbances that result from the estrogen decline that occurs during perimenopause and menopause. In men, Bioidentical Hormones have helped to regulate the hypothalamus, which helps to control the body’s sleep cycles. Both men and women have been able to improve their sleep with the help of Louisville, Kentucky Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy specialist, Doctor Brad Cummins.

Thyroid Disorders

Hyperthyroidism is caused when the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone, and some of the issues that can occur with hypothyroidism include sudden weight loss, a faster heart rate, increased bowel movements, anxiety, heart palpitation, bulging eyes, and increased metabolic functions. Bioidentical Hormones can help patients to restore a healthy weight, prevent bulging eyes, calm the heart rate, and reduce anxiety. Another thyroid condition occurs when there is a lack of thyroid hormone production, which is known as hypothyroidism, and this condition can be improved with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Thyroid hormone controls many metabolic functions in the body, and when it is lacking people may experience sudden weight gain, constipation, intolerance to cold, hair loss, irregular periods, cold limbs, and fatigue. Replacing thyroid hormone with Bioidentical Hormones can help men and women to balance their thyroid gland, improve metabolic functions, lose weight, have more energy, and regulate their body temperature.

Low Libido

Falling hormone levels in both men and women can lead to low libido. In women, perimenopause and menopause are the times when they usually experience a reduced sex drive. In men, andropause can lead to a lack of desire for sexual activity, reduced sex drive, and eventually, erectile dysfunction. Supplementing deficient hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help both men and women to regain a healthy sex drive, which can rekindle intimate relationships and improve feelings of youthfulness.

Weight Loss Resistance

Usually imbalances in estrogen and progesterone are to blame for weight loss resistance. In women going through perimenopause and menopause falling estrogen levels can cause the body to hold onto body fat because it contains estrogen, and a lack of progesterone causes water retention because it is a natural diuretic. In men, a lack of testosterone can cause a rise in estrogen, which in turn suppresses testosterone leading to a slower metabolism and more body fat. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help both men and women to replenish deficient hormones and correct imbalances. Many women and men have been able to lose weight with the help of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.

Gastrointestinal (GI) Disorders

Many people suffer from GI disorders, and some of these issues may be due to high stress, poor dietary habits, or autoimmune conditions. Improving nutrition, dietary habits, and reducing stress may help to correct GI disorders. Many hormones also play a role in maintaining a healthy digestive tract, and Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help to balance hormones, which can improve metabolic and gastrointestinal functions.

Hypothyroid

A lack of thyroid hormone production is known as hypothyroidism, and this condition can be improved with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Thyroid hormone controls many metabolic functions in the body, and when it is lacking people may experience sudden weight gain, constipation, intolerance to cold, hair loss, irregular periods, cold limbs, and fatigue. Replacing thyroid hormone with Bioidentical Hormones can help men and women to balance their thyroid gland, improve metabolic functions, lose weight, have more energy, and regulate their body temperature.

Hot Flashes

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can get to the root of hot flashes because body temperature is regulated by hormones. Both women and men can suffer from hot flashes, which are usually associated with hormonal decline that occurs during perimenopause, menopause, or andropause. Balancing hormones can help to regulate the hypothalamus, which balances body temperature. Regaining hormone balance can prevent and reverse inconvenient hot flashes and temperature fluctuations.

Chronic Fatigue

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is an autoimmune condition that is characterized with a feeling of mental and physical fatigue that lasts more than 24 hours. In this condition, people may also experience swollen lymph nodes, a chronic sore throat, body aches, flu-like symptoms, mental fogginess, and insomnia. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy may be able to help improve the immune system by replacing deficient hormones. Several people with Chronic Fatigue have been able to use Bioidentical Hormones to improve energy, sleep, and mental clarity and reverse the symptoms associated with chronic fatigue.
