Hormones

Progesterone -Estrogen - Testosterone
 

Men and women actually have exactly the same hormones – the difference is in the amounts of each.

  • Men have more testosterone. 

  • Young women have more estrogen.

  • Middle-aged men and women have about the same amounts of estrogen and progesterone.

 

As part of the aging process, hormones begin to decline by age 35. Stress, poor diet, toxins, and genetics also cause hormones to decline. The most common hormone deficiency is Progesterone.


Hormone imbalances contribute to many health challenges:

  • Memory Loss                                              

  • Muscle Weakness 

  • Mood Swings                                              

  • Heart Problems                                                                

  • Weight Gain                                                

  • Difficulty Concentrating

DHEA [dehydroepiandrosterone] is often called the ‘master hormone’, because the body can use it to make other hormones. DHEA gradually declines with aging, but can substantially decline because of prolonged or extreme stress.

Low levels of DHEA have been linked with increased risk for:

  • Cardiovascular problems

  • Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia

  • Parkinson’s

  • Osteoporosis

  • Cancer(s)

 

At Health+Plus we can check your hormone levels through a blood sample. Test results are usually available the next day.

The doctors will then recommend highly-effective, natural, bio-identical hormone creams or capsules to help replenish and balance hormone levels.
