The hormones in our body are a key component to our overall health. We know the importance of having a balanced ratio between estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and DHEA. We also recognize the role that our sex hormones play with cortisol and insulin. All of these hormones also interact with our thyroid hormone so balance between all of them is crucial to how we feel. Your hormone levels will change throughout your lifetime and these fluctuations influence how much hormone is being made and how much hormone we need to replace. We are knowledgeable in the arena of Hormone Replacement Therapy and would love to work with you and your doctor to determine the best customized hormone medication for you.

Cortisol is the only hormone in your body that increases in amount with age. It is known as the stress hormone because it is what our body releases in response to stress. The more stressed you are, the higher your cortisol levels. As stress decreases, those levels will come back down. The greater amount of stress we experience - whether it is stress related to job, family pressures, money, menopause symptoms, a chronic medical condition, etc. - the greater the risk of that stress becoming chronic - and resulting in Adrenal Dysfunction. This can ultimately lead to:
Over time, the body may no longer be able to continue to produce the amounts of cortisol it needs and ultimately end up with low cortisol levels - adrenal fatigue - when our adrenal glands become burnt out due to overstimulation.
Many women experience some form of Adrenal Dysfunction. Talk to our compounding pharmacist today about effective treatment options including supplements, sleep hygiene, stress reduction techniques, adaptogens and pharmacologic therapy.
