At Florida Health & Wellness Institute, we’re not interested in a one-size-fits-all approach to hormone therapy. We understand that what may work for one person may not be the best approach for another. This is why Dr. Peláez takes the time to create a custom-designed treatment program for each of his patients to address the specific imbalances they may be facing. Hormones are the chemical messengers that are responsible for controlling and coordinating activities throughout the body. Improper production or even minor fluctuations in hormone levels can significantly affect your health. Since hormones control numerous biochemical processes, the symptoms related to hormone imbalances are plentiful. Hormone imbalances are considered multifactorial disorders, meaning they occur due to a combination of factors. These factors include genetics, medical history, exposure to toxins, stress levels, and diet. Luckily, hormone imbalances can be addressed naturally at Florida Health & Wellness Institute in Pensacola, FL.

 

What is Natural Hormone Therapy?

Conventional treatments for hormonal imbalances rely heavily on medications and synthetic treatments that never address the root of your hormone issues. This results in patients who are dependent on prescription medications for the rest of their lives. Otherwise, the symptoms associated with their imbalance will return. Even worse, masking these symptoms with medication makes it much more likely that additional abnormalities will unknowingly develop in the body as the disorder progresses. As a way to safeguard our patients and ensure their condition does not worsen, we restore hormone imbalances and relieve symptoms with a variety of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) treatments. This hormone therapy involves comprehensive laboratory testing, a detailed analysis of hormone levels, and custom-designed BHRT. This differs from synthetic hormone replacement products used in conventional medicine because bioidentical hormones are molecularly identical to those found in the human body. Biochemical hormones are derived from plants, whereas synthetic hormones are created using inorganic chemical compounds. The goal of BHRT and the other hormone therapies are to find and correct the root cause of the imbalance holistically, thus reducing or eliminating the symptoms commonly experienced by unbalanced hormones.

 

Is Hormone Therapy Right for Me?

As people age and begin experiencing a drop in hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, it is common for the body to go through changes that may be accompanied by a number of symptoms. Though these changes are typical with menopause and andropause, they can also be found in people who suffer from environmental or dietary toxins. Regardless of the cause of your imbalance, Florida Health & Wellness Institute can address these fluctuations as a proactive way to ward off any adverse side effects that would diminish your quality of life. Common symptoms men and women experience when dealing with hormone imbalance include:

  • Weight gain
  • Anxiety
  • Decreased libido
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Cognitive changes
  • Infertility
  • Digestive issues
  • Irritability
  • Hair loss/thinning
  • Night sweats
  • Muscle loss/weakness

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, you may have a hormonal imbalance that requires comprehensive hormone therapy. Instead of “dealing with it” or using synthetic medications/treatments, consider opting for minimally-invasive and highly-effective Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Dr. Peláez is dedicated to assisting patients as they progress through these treatments and toward optimal health and wellness. By acknowledging that each patient is unique and requires hormone therapy treatment designed around their particular needs, we can effectively help those suffering from hormone imbalances.
