Signs of Hormonal Imbalances
Hormone imbalances can happen to anyone and are more common as we get older. It’s important to recognize the warning signs of a hormonal imbalance so that you can come into our practice for an evaluation. A simple blood test can help us check your hormone levels to see which ones are off. Signs of a hormonal imbalance include,

- Weight gain
- Muscle loss
- Hair loss
- Brittle nails
- Mood swings
- Brain fog
- Poor concentration and memory

Hormone Optimization Therapy can be:

What is Hormone Optimization Therapy?
Hormone optimization therapy is our team’s way of balancing out your hormones with gentle bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), which includes giving our patients plant-derived hormones that mimic the structure of your body’s hormones, so you can get all the benefits of balancing your hormones with fewer side effects than synthetic hormone replacement therapy. We have helped women combat menopausal symptoms through estrogen and even testosterone replacement therapy. We also provide thyroid optimization therapy to balance hormones of the thyroid, which are incredibly important for energy and metabolism.
What are the Benefits of Hormone Optimization Therapy?
As you might imagine, when your hormones are out of whack, you certainly will not feel your best. This is why it’s essential to turn to hormone optimization therapy to balance out your hormone levels. For example, by prescribing medication to balance thyroid hormone levels, we can improve energy levels and sleep and memory and mood. By balancing progesterone in women, we can improve bloating, headaches and fibroids and may even reduce your risk for uterine and breast cancers. Testosterone replacement therapy can benefit both men and women and improve energy and strength, bone density, fat loss and muscle gain.
If you feel fatigued regularly or are experiencing any of the other problems above, it’s good to have your hormone level checked.
This is particularly important for men and women as they approach middle age. To schedule a consultation with our team, call Medical Institute of Healthy Aging at (650) 779-7201.
