Don’t Use Band-Aids For Hormonal Conditions
You know your body better than anyone else, so it’s frustrating when you know something is wrong only to have a primary care physician tell you “it’s nothing” or “it’s normal.” To be dismissed when you’re trying to take care of your body is not just insulting, it could actually be dangerous, particularly if your physician is trying to throw toxic medications at the problem without first learning the cause. This is often true of women who have hormonal imbalances. Instead of getting to the root of the imbalance, they are prescribed harmful hormone replacements which may actually exacerbate the underlying issue. At The KadileAtric Power PrincipleⓇ, we don’t believe in using Band-Aids to treat conditions that affect your body; instead, we delve deep into the causes.
Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalances
While there are many symptoms, hormonal imbalances can only be verified through extensive testing. The following symptoms may be an indication that you need to be tested:
- Weight gain
- Extreme PMS, heavier periods than usual, or lighter periods than usual
- Depression, anxiety, or mood swings
- Endometriosis or infertility
- Overall fatigue
Because these symptoms are shared with other conditions, it is easier for your physician to try one pill after another until you find one that works. The problem here (in addition to loading your body with toxins) is that each medication is simply a temporary fix. To find long-term relief, you need a doctor who will listen to your concerns and help you get to the bottom of what is causing your symptoms.
While hormone replacement therapy was once the standard for treating symptoms of menopause, it has since been found to increase the risk of stroke, heart disease, breast cancer, and blood clots. Simply stated, the risks outweigh the benefits.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is completely different from traditional HRT. With bioidentical HRT, the hormones used to replace those that your body no longer produces are chemically identical to those that occur naturally in the human body.
Because Dr. Kadile conducts extensive tests to diagnose hormonal deficiencies, he can pinpoint which hormones you need and which you do not. What does this mean to you? No unnecessary hormones or drugs to cause further damage to your body.
