Over 40 million Americans are affected by feelings of anxiety – you may be going on about your day, and all of a sudden you begin to feel lethargic and overwhelmed. At Integrity Wellness MD, we are dedicated to helping individuals regain their healthy mindset and positive outlook through safe Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) treatments.
If you have not been feeling like yourself, our professional team can put your mind at ease and discuss how BHRT treatments can alleviate your uneasy feelings. As a person ages, their hormone levels naturally drop, and so do their body’s levels of dopamine and serotonin needed to keep them functioning at a higher level. Through tailored hormone replacement therapy, individuals have seen a large improvement in cognitive function and decreased levels of anxiety.
In order to balance out hormone levels, there needs to be a specific amount of amino acids present in the immune system. Dr. Reis is trained in optimizing your hormone levels through a variety of different treatments including BHRT, nutrition and weight loss, detoxification, and pellet therapy. In some cases, hormonal imbalances can result in impaired memory and brain fog that can increase as you age.
What are some symptoms of a hormonal imbalance that can increase anxiety levels?
While there is no clear reasoning behind how the process of aging can increase anxiety levels in individuals, it is for certain that every person will have a unique journey regarding their hormone levels. Many women may experience intense mood swings during menopause, their periods, and pregnancy, while men may experience the same range of emotion during their andropause stages.
An imbalance in hormone levels has been directly correlated with higher anxiety levels; when your anxiety levels are elevated, the body releases larger amounts of cortisol and adrenaline leading your body to activate your ‘fight or flight’ mode. An abnormal amount of those hormone levels can lead to:
- High cholesterol levels
- Weakened immune system
- Harder time concentrating and remembering things
- Increased irritability
How long will it take to see results from my BHRT treatments?
Depending on your symptoms, health history, and current lifestyle, Dr. Reis will create a plan that will suit your needs. Results vary from person to person, depending on the specific hormone therapy you require.
Generally, you can expect to see the benefits of BHRT anywhere from a few weeks to 6 months. It’s important to note that your body will need time to adjust to the influx of hormones, build up depleted amounts of hormones and properly balance themselves before your see the results in your body functions. When you’re starting to feel like your best self, that is when you know that the BHRT treatment is working.
How does hormone replacement help with lowering anxiety levels?
BHRT effectively restores an individual’s hormone levels to help promote the production of dopamine and serotonin without causing severe health side-effects that are closely associated with synthetic, lab-created hormones.
Apart from individuals regulating their mood swings and experiencing lower levels of anxiety, they have also reported:
- A steady decrease in migraine and hot flashes
- Regulated sleeping patterns
- Enhanced sexual performance
- Increased stamina and energy levels
- Overall improvement in their quality of life
