New Day Vitality analyzes your individual hormone levels before prescribing a personalized amount of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Pellets, designed to consistently deliver a defined amount of hormones.
By restoring your hormones to functional levels, you can reclaim your vitality and thrive in ALL your relationships! New Day Vitality Center’s hormone therapy is designed specifically to help you achieve the natural, healthy balance of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone your body needs to maintain optimal well-being. The pellet hormone delivery system actually replenishes what is lost in the aging process, using the equivalent hormones your body used to create when you were healthy and in your prime.
As a woman, you have heard of hormones but probably don’t know enough about them or how their levels may effect you. Here are the two main hormone conditions that women face:
Many people see declining hormone levels as a natural part of aging? Hormones affect your energy level, your sex life, your ability to maintain muscle and keep weight off, and your ability to think clearly without anxiety. Why should you have to live with a declining body and mind? The answer is simple: You don’t.
“I didn’t think I needed it,” says Saroya Sewell. She remembers that she limped into our office last year. “After my first insert, I felt a vibrancy and aliveness in my body that I hadn’t felt for years,” says 57 year old Sewell. “And I can walk fast without pain now.”
Remember when your sex drive was healthy, you felt great, slept like a baby, and had more energy than you knew what to do with? Then along comes menopause and her companions: hot flashes, night sweats, osteoporosis, coronary artery disease, arthritis and even some forgetfulness. Wouldn’t it be nice to turn back the years and regain some of that health and vigor?
From age 30 onward, testosterone begins to drop 1 to 3 percent annually in both men and women. In your 40’s, you may start complaining about “feeling older.” Work productivity may decline, you spend more time on the couch and your once effective workout doesn’t deliver the same results. (The results in the bedroom may also be declining!)
Perimenopause, some surf through effortlessly, but for many it’s a bitch. Weight gain, uncontrollable sadness then explosive anger, sleepless nights and exhausting days are caused by fluctuating hormone levels. Another symptom is no interest in sex at all!
Instead of birth control pills, diets, antidepressants and admonitions that all this is “normal”, a woman can be tested and if estrogen, testosterone or progesterone are lacking, they can be replenished with pills, creams or pellets that are not synthetic but natural.
The “Hormone Roller Coaster” starts for many in their 30-40s. During these years each woman’s response to hormone over- or underproduction is unique and dramatically affected by her lifestyle, environment, and genetic makeup. Because each woman is unique, blood levels and symptoms must be followed to maximize the benefits of therapy.
Hormones tip out of balance usually beginning with fluctuating progesterone levels. Progesterone, desperately needed for emotional and physical balance can dip with poor eating habits, stress, and if you don’t release an egg when you ovulate. When progesterone dips, estrogen levels rise to compensate. When we have too much estrogen, a condition known as estrogen dominance, bad things begin to occur; these include acne, bloating, weight gain, fibrocystic breasts, fibroid uterine tumors, unstable emotions and irritability. Also, medications such as antidepressants, steroids, antibiotics and birth control pills can disrupt the hormone cycle.
Stress can be the most insidious trigger for hormonal ups and downs. When you are tense, emotionally overloaded and exhausted your hormones can be all over the map.
Have your hormones tested. If you “just don’t feel like yourself” and you can’t find the cause, hormone testing and follow-up treatment can mean the difference between feeling good or going off the deep end. Hormone imbalances in women create a constellation of problems: hot flashes, weird periods, mood swings, weight gain, and low sex drive.
Hormone balancing is not a science but an art. Each woman is unique and at New Day Vitality we monitor your labs, discuss your symptoms and work as partners to help you to live your life to the fullest and to love each day. Relationships improve when you are happy and have more patience.
