Hormone imbalances: the root cause of most signs and symptoms of aging

Hormones are chemical messengers that are responsible for many of the processes that keep our bodies functioning properly. They are produced by the endocrine glands and travel through the bloodstream to the tissues and organs they regulate. As we age, our bodies produce less of the hormones responsible for our growth, metabolism, and reproduction. This gradual decline in hormone production can cause several signs and symptoms associated with aging.

A hormone imbalance means that there is too much or too little of a particular hormone in the body. This can disrupt the normal function of the tissues and organs regulated by that hormone. The most common hormone imbalances that occur as we age are a decline in the hormones estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. This can lead to hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, osteoporosis, a decline in muscle mass, mood swings, low libido, and erectile dysfunction.

The Yunique method: bioidentical hormone pellets

Hormone optimization therapy can restore optimal hormone levels in clients experiencing the signs and symptoms of hormone imbalances. Our hormone replacement therapy in Ocala can be performed using numerous techniques, such as skin patches, topical gels, injections, and subcutaneous pellets. Each method has its unique advantages and drawbacks, but we offer personalized bioidentical hormone pellets to ensure safe, consistent, and natural results.

Bioidentical hormones drawn from plant sources resemble the molecular structure of the natural hormones produced by your body. As such, your body can easily metabolize bioidentical hormones, compared to the synthetic variety used for traditional hormone treatments. We place bioidentical hormone pellets underneath the skin to ensure a steady release of hormones for several weeks or months, thus preventing peaks and valleys in hormone levels.
