HORMONE SOLUTIONS & SUPPLEMENTS

Thyroid problems and vitamin deficiency
can impact the quality of your life.

Risks factors for low Vitamin D are brittle bones, osteoporosis, insulin resistance, high blood pressure, decreased immune function, depression and other mental health disorders. Symptoms of low Vitamin D are muscle aches, weakness, muscle tension, joint pain and fatigue.
The symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency are vague and difficult to diagnose. You may be prone to Vitamin D deficiency if you have one or more of the following symptoms:

  • darker skin – the darker your skin is the more Vitamin D you need
  • obesity
  • pregnancy
  • seasonal depression – Serotonin, the brain hormone associated with mood elevation, rises with exposure to sunlight and falls with decreased sun exposure in the winter months
  • pain in your bones
  • fatigue

Correcting Vitamin D levels is important to your overall health and has been proven to boost the immune system, improve cardio health, reduce likelihood of autoimmune disorders and prevent cancer.

A healthy thyroid can help you maintain your active lifestyle well into your twilight years. Thyroid hormone treatment is important to help keep your mind and emotions in check. As we age, our thyroid levels fluctuate. Maintaining the optimal levels will decrease the consequences of hypo or hyperthyroidism.

Benefits of thyroid hormones result in increased metabolism, regulated body temperature and increases fat breakdown (resulting in weight loss as well as lowering cholesterol). It protects against cardiovascular disease while cerebral function is enhanced and symptoms of depression decline. Low thyroid can specifically affect the health of hair, skin, nails and cause fatigue. Thyroid hormone treatment is an important facet to the quality of our life.

Only certain foods contain Vitamin B12. These include meat, eggs, poultry, dairy products and other foods from animals. Strict vegetarians and vegans are at high risk for developing a B12 deficiency if they don’t eat grains that have been fortified with the vitamin or take a vitamin supplement. People who have stomach stapling or other forms of weight-loss surgery are also more likely to be low in B12 because the operation interferes with the body’s ability to extract the vitamin from food.

Conditions such as celiac or Crohn’s disease can cause a lack of B12 absorption. Likewise, the use of commonly prescribed heartburn drugs which reduce acid production in the stomach halt the absorption of the vitamin. The condition is more likely to occur with aging due to a natural cutback in stomach acid production.

B12 DEFICIENCY SYMPTOMS
Given the array of symptoms, a B12 deficiency can be overlooked or misdiagnosed. Symptoms may include:
  • strange sensations, numbness, or tingling in the hands, legs, or feet
  • difficulty walking, altered gait or balance problems
  • anemia
  • a swollen, inflamed tongue
  • yellowed skin (jaundice)
  • difficulty thinking and reasoning (cognitive difficulties), or memory loss
  • paranoia or hallucinations
  • weakness
  • fatigue

Estrogen helps maintain good bone density, skin temperature and vaginal health.
A drop in estrogen levels can cause:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Urinary problems
  • Thinning hair
  • Sleep problems
  • Night sweats
  • Mood swings
  • Lower fertility
  • Irregular periods
  • Hot flashes
  • Concentration and memory difficulties
  • Tender breasts
  • Accumulation of fat in the abdomen

Symptoms of an Estrogen imbalance may sometimes occur before menopause starts (perimenopause). In this case: the woman is still producing eggs, and the quantity of eggs has dropped significantly which can trigger a fall in hormone levels. The patient may still have regular periods in addition to menopausal symptoms.

Low testosterone for both men and women. Treatment options include injections, pellets, gels and creams. See our Homepage for more information.
