What happens when my hormones are not balanced?

Hormonal imbalance is an inevitable part of life. While hormonal imbalance is more common in older men and women, young adults can also suffer from hormonal imbalance at some point in their lives. 

Hormones dictate different body functions in our body, such as appetite, sleep, response to stress, sexual desire, mood, and a whole lot more. So when we experience hormone imbalance, these different body functions are also affected.

Hormonal imbalance affects more than just their daily lives; it also affects their quality of life. 

Symptoms of hormonal imbalance include:

  • Bloating
  • Fatigue or energy crash
  • Irritability
  • Hair loss
  • Mood swings and angry outbursts
  • Problems with blood sugar
  • Infertility
  • Brain fog or cognitive decline
  • Sleep problems
  • Low libido

What hormones are most commonly imbalanced?

  • Cortisol

    Cortisol is the stress hormone and plays an essential role in various body functions. The adrenal glands release cortisol mainly in response to stress. Cortisol levels rise and fall throughout the day. 

    When your cortisol levels are too high or too low, you can lose control over several functions, resulting in issues such as anxiety and depression, headaches, trouble sleeping, weight gain or weight loss, and fatigue.

  • Insulin

    The pancreas releases the fat-storage hormone insulin and regulates blood glucose (sugar) levels. Also known as impaired insulin sensitivity, insulin resistance results from cells in your muscles, fat, and liver not responding to insulin as they should. 

    Insulin resistance often causes high blood pressure, low levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, atherosclerosis, blurred vision, increased hunger and thirst, and frequent urination.

  • Thyroid hormones

    The thyroid gland releases thyroid hormones that are essential in regulating your weight, energy levels, internal temperature, skin, hair, nail growth, and metabolism.

    When thyroid hormones are imbalanced, it’s called either hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, and has symptoms such as fatigue, fluctuating pulse rates, weight gain or loss, and sleep problems.

  • Estrogen

    Women’s reproductive and growth processes are influenced by estrogen. Low estrogen is most commonly caused by menopause or surgical removal of the ovaries.

    Symptoms of too low or too high estrogen include irregular or absent menstrual periods, lack of ovulation and fertility problems, painful sex, mood swings, and hot flashes. 

  • Testosterone

    The primary sex hormone in men is testosterone, produced in the testes. Too much or too little testosterone can have a negative effect on men, such as reduced sex drive, erectile dysfunction, loss of lean muscle mass, anger issues, and weight problems.

I’ve heard of hormone pellet therapy; is it safe?

Hormone Pellet Therapy Miami FLHormone pellet therapy is a type of hormone replacement therapy. In hormone pellet therapy, a small pellet containing hormones is inserted under the skin. Hormones are continuously released in this way to correct hormonal imbalances.

However, compared to other FDA-approved hormone therapy, hormone pellet therapy is associated with six times more side effects! The risks simply do not outweigh the benefits. Are you willing to take the risk?

Hormone pellet therapy is a reliable delivery system for hormones but is typically associated with a more significant number of side effects.

In particular, women have had some serious side effects from hormone pellet therapy, such as abnormal uterine bleeding and vision loss.

Other symptoms may include acne breakouts, crazy mood swings, changes in hair patterns, and weight gain. It is also tricky to adjust hormone pellet doses once inserted, which is usually the case during therapy.

This may result in overdose or underdose, both of which are undesirable. In hormone pellet therapy, dosage adjustment can only be achieved through surgical removal and reinsertion, which is risky and invasive.

Alternatives to hormone pellet therapy?

Fortunately, there are alternatives to hormone pellet therapy available at NuLife Institute. Our alternatives are much safer and have fewer side effects than hormone pellet therapy. 

  • Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men – Male hormone levels declines as they age. We design hormone therapy programs specifically for the special needs of the male body so that you can be at your best at any age!

  • Testosterone Replacement TherapyMen experience hormone depletion differently than women, as their testosterone levels fluctuate. Our testosterone replacement programs have been proven to be a safe and effective way to help men deal with the many negative impacts of age-related testosterone loss.

  • Human Growth Hormone (HGH) for Men and Women – HGH is essential for both men and women. As we age, we produce less HGH, which can lead to fatigue and loss of energy, irregular sleep cycles, anxiety and depression, and loss of interest in sex and other activities. We have designed HGH replacement therapies to give you back what time and nature take away.

  • Bioidentical Hormones for Women – Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) hormones are individualized based on a person’s medical history, goals, and needs, unlike hormone pellet therapy. This is a safe and natural way to deal with age-related hormone decline and its symptoms.
