Conditions Treated with Bioidentical Hormones

Sacramento (BHRT) Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Specialist, Dennis Godby, N.D. at Sacramento Naturopathic Medical Center has used Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to treat a number of conditions that are caused by imbalanced hormones. Both men and women can benefit from BHRT, and people of all ages may have conditions that can be remedied with hormonal supplementation.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy treats conditions that involve metabolic functions such as thyroid disorders, chronic fatigue, and adrenal fatigue. It also treats age related hormonal deficiencies such as menopause, perimenopause, and andropause. All symptoms related to hormone imbalances can be treated and possibly alleviated.

Some of the conditions that Dennis Godby, N.D. uses Bioidentical Hormones to treat include:

Menopause

Before menopause, estrogen levels drop, and this period of time can last for a number of years. Imbalanced estrogen and progesterone can cause hot flashes, insomnia, dry skin, vaginal dryness, and moodiness. When estrogen is supplemented, the related symptoms can be eliminated.

Andropause

Testosterone decline creates the condition known as andropause. This condition can cause weight gain, higher blood pressure, abnormal sleeping habits, hair loss, a hot temper, low libido, fatigue, and muscle atrophy. These symptoms can be relieved if testosterone regains balance.

Adrenal Fatigue

High levels of stress can trigger the adrenals to excrete too much cortisol, which can exhaust the kidneys. This can cause symptoms such as fatigue, hair loss, a poor memory, and body aches.

Chronic Fatigue

This syndrome can be triggered by hormonal imbalances related to the kidneys. Parts of the kidneys produce hormones, and when they are not producing the proper amount of hormones, a person may experience constant fatigue, sore throat, muscle aches, headaches, and poor concentration.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

PCOS occurs when numerous sacs filled with fluid cover the ovaries due to an abnormal hormonal fluctuation. BHRT offers the option of balancing the hormones to help the symptoms.

Thyroid Issues

Sacramento Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Specialist, Dennis Godby, N.D. treats diseases such as Hashimoto’s, Graves, Hypothyroid, and Hyperthyroid. Hormone imbalances can affect the production of thyroid hormone, and this hormone can be in excess or deficiency. If the thyroid hormone is produced in excess, it can cause increased anxiety, thinning hair, and spontaneous sweating. When there is a deficiency of thyroid hormone, heavy periods, unexplained weight gain, and dry skin may be experienced.

Weight Gain

Thyroid imbalances, excess cortisol, menopause, and andropause can cause metabolism dysfunction and weight retention. Deficient estrogen causes fat to store, and low testosterone can cause muscle atrophy.
