Women’s Health & Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Sanjay Mohan Ram, N.D. at The Cross Roads Naturopathic Clinic specializes in helping women to overcome the consequences of imbalanced hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Even though all women go through menopause, many are surprised at how quickly it comes on and the severity of the symptoms. Thanks to perimenopause, you may start experiencing issues as early as your mid 30s. Then there’s menopause itself, which doesn’t technically occur until you have gone 12 full months without a menstrual period. Although there is considerable variation, 51 is the average age of menopause for American women.
As if that wasn’t enough, many women continue to feel miserable with post-menopausal symptoms. It’s no wonder that women everywhere are demanding a better, more natural treatment that helps them live as comfortable as possible. For many, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy offers relief that prescription medications from their doctor just can’t match. These Bioidentical Hormones, which replicate what your body once produced, can bring welcome relief for menopausal women.
Men’s Health & Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Vancouver, BC Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Specialist, Sanjay Mohan Ram, N.D. also specializes in helping men to overcome the signs and symptoms of hormone decline.
Male bodies go through many changes as part of the natural aging process. Part of this process is a decline in hormone production. Male hormones such as testosterone are responsible for efficient and healthy operation of many bodily functions including muscle and hair growth and metabolic regulation. As hormone production begins to decline as part of the natural aging process, men may experience a wide range of symptoms related to hormone imbalance. When they have reached their 40’s and 50’s, testosterone levels can have fallen by as much as 25% causing weight gain, muscle atrophy, and possibly even sexual dysfunction.
This stage of life is commonly referred to andropause and the symptoms it can present are often comparable to those that women experience during perimenopause and menopause. Fortunately for men, this decline in hormone levels is not as drastic or sudden as what is experienced by women during menopause. As the levels of testosterone gradually start to decline, small changes in energy levels, stamina, and an inconsistent short-term memory are usually overlooked in most men. It is usually not until major symptoms or conditions present themselves that men begin to consider looking for a way to feel normal again.
Boosting Health in Conjunction with Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
Aside from balancing hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, men and women can do a number of things to improve their health and increase the effectiveness of their Bioidentical Hormone therapies. Some of the ways patients can boost their health include:
Increase Physical Activity
Increase cardiovascular exercise to 3 sessions per week and love what you do, a game of tennis, sweating it out at hockey practice, jogging along the seawall with a friend, or listening to your favorite podcasts. Exercise is a guaranteed mood and vitality booster in the dark days of winter!
Build Muscle Mass
Focus on these foods now to increase muscle building potential, which include fruits and vegetables, eggs, lean meats and fish, beans and legumes. All of these food groups contain useable protein and anti-oxidants to give your biceps the nourishment they need to thrive.
Lose Weight Around The Middle
Cut the sugar! As the holiday season approaches, sugary snacks are all around us. Giving up the hot chocolate, that extra bite of banana bread or ice cream will make all the difference around your waistline and can increase your risk of heart disease and diabetes. Keep in mind this category also includes white rice, pastries, and white breads. Choose fresh fruit, protein smoothies, trail mix, and complex carbohydrates, such as hummus and cut up veggies to curb the cravings.
Have trouble focusing at work or feel like hitting the couch by the time Friday arrives? To increase your energy, avoid sugary foods, get to bed early, cut down on alcohol consumption, and practice stress reduction techniques. All of these have been shown to increase vitality and greater sense of wellbeing. Also, turn off that TV and computer. Yes, give yourself a tech break to get grounded and recharge your system.
