Conditions Treated By Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
Everyone feels better, looks better and performs better when their hormones are in balance. Bozeman Bioidentical Hormone Expert, Michael Lang, N.D., ABHRT, has seen both women and men from Park County and Gallatin County, Montana can find relief from symptoms of Perimenopause, Menopause, Low T, and other conditions that are impacted by hormone imbalances.
When imbalances occur, you may experience a wide variety of symptoms, depending on which hormone(s) are out of balance.
Bioidentical Hormones are derived from naturally occurring sources instead of synthetic chemicals. They are designed to replicate exactly the same chemical structure as the hormones that are produced naturally in our bodies.
Dr. Lang’s Bioidentical Hormone Therapy programs at The Vital Life helps address the following conditions and symptoms:
Menopause results in the decline of ovarian function in women. This reduces the body’s reserves of progesterone and estrogen, which are both essential for many areas of mental, sexual and physical health. Some of the common symptoms women experience during menopause include mood swings, hot flashes, insomnia, depression, night sweats, sexual dysfunction, anxiety and joint and muscle pain. Bioidentical Hormone Therapy can be used to supplement the body with progesterone and estrogen, helping to reduce the symptoms of menopause and reducing the risk of heart disease and osteoporosis.
- Low T
After men turn thirty, testosterone levels begin to decline naturally at about 1% per year. In men, this hormone imbalance often has the biggest impact on testosterone and cortisol (the stress hormone). With testosterone and cortisol levels out of proper range, men may experience a range of life-altering symptoms including a reduction in libido, reduced muscle tone, night sweats, gynecomastia (male breasts), urinary problems, weight gain, mood swings, fatigue, hair loss, sleep apnea and erectile dysfunction. As a Bozeman Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Expert, Michael Lang, N.D. will create a Testosterone Therapy treatment program that has helped many of his patients combat the symptoms of Low T and aging, ultimately allowing them to recapture their youthful energy and physique.
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Mimicking several symptoms of the flu, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome often brings on symptoms such as swollen lymph nodes, a chronic sore throat, body aches, joint pain with no swelling, headaches, insomnia and exhaustion that lasts more than twenty-four hours. Numerous hormones are involved in regulating and strengthening the immune system. Balancing these hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Therapy can resolve or eliminate many symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
- Sexual Dysfunction
Degenerating hormone levels that plague women during menopause or perimenopause are often to blame for vaginal dryness, inability to climax and low libido. In men, low libido and erectile dysfunction are common consequences of hormonal deficiencies or imbalances experienced during andropause. Rectifying hormone levels with Bioidentical Hormone Therapy can help men and women to restore sexual function and a healthy libido.
Insufficient production of thyroid hormone often leads to hypothyroidism, which brings on symptoms that include intolerance to cold, depression, fatigue, thinning hair, irregular periods, goiter, constipation and weight gain. Restoring thyroid hormone levels with Bioidentical Hormone Therapy can reduce the consequences of hypothyroidism.
Super abundant amounts of thyroid hormone excretion lead to hyperthyroidism, which causes symptoms such as increased heart rate, weight loss, panic attacks, nervousness, anxiety, increased bowel movements and bulging eyes. Correcting thyroid hormone imbalances with Bioidentical Hormone Therapy can reverse the effects of hyperthyroidism.
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Alternating constipation and diarrhea are not issues that solely depend on the gut; valuable hormones, such as thyroid hormone, cortisol, and insulin play a role in digestion before food enters the gut. They also regulate the nervous system, which gives the gut orders to stop or induce intestinal contractions that move food through them. Reducing stress and balancing hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Therapy can help to improve digestive and bowel function.
Fibromyalgia is an autoimmune disorder that most commonly occurs in women over the age of fifty. This illness causes symptoms that include mental fogginess, tender points, body aches, fatigue, alternating constipation with diarrhea, bladder disturbances and joint pain. Certain hormones work to reduce pain sensitivity in the body, and when they are deficient, increased pain or inflammation may occur. Balancing hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Therapy can help to reduce the symptoms of fibromyalgia.
