Hormones are essential for growth and proper development in children, ovulation and reproduction in women, and muscle development in men. The endocrine system regulates the balance of hormones as an individual goes through different life stages. When these hormones are out of balance, it can lead to fatigue, weight problems, low sex drive, menstrual irregularities, PMS, mood problems, erection problems, poor muscle recovery from exercise, and many other problems.
The doctors at Paracelsus will assess your hormonal levels to determine what the best treatments are for you, including bio-identical hormones, if appropriate, and work with you to bring your hormone levels back into balance.
Assessment and Treatment
Paracelsus offers many treatments for hormone imbalances, such as:
Specific vitamins and minerals
Bio-identical hormone replacement for women and men
In the Know: Menopause
Menopause is a natural stage in the life of a woman, when the ovaries stop producing the hormones estrogen and progesterone. While you may have irregular periods for a length of time, you are considered in menopause when you have not had a period for a year.
Some women have symptoms that make this life stage very uncomfortable. These include hot flashes, moodiness, trouble sleeping, memory fog and weight gain. However, there is no reason for women to feel they have to suffer through these symptoms. With the right therapies, these symptoms can be greatly reduced and make the new life stage something to look forward to. The doctors at Paracelsus have many homeopathic options to help you have a smooth transition during this time. Learn more about our treatment for menopause.
