What Every Woman — and Man — Should Know About Hormones

Is a hormone imbalance making you feel like your life is a complete train wreck? It's not your fault. Hormonal imbalances can affect both men and women, and are prone to shift in middle age, causing midlife crises and menopause and otherwise wreaking havoc on your life. 

At Nexclin Medicine in Roswell, Georgia, triple board-certified physician Dr. Naima Cheema and her team offer hormone level testing and bioidentical hormone therapy for both men and women to restore balance and relieve your symptoms. 

Bioidentical hormones: What are they?

Bioidentical hormones are created in the lab, but instead of using hormones from animal sources, the lab derives these hormones from plant sources. They are chemically identical to the hormones your body produces. Bioidentical hormones are thought to cause fewer side effects than traditional hormone therapy replacement and can provide the same great benefits.

How bioidentical hormones can help

Here are a few things both women and men should know about hormones and how they can help you.

Hormones ease menopause symptoms

Hormone replacement therapy can help smooth transition into menopause, keeping you from suffering the night sweats, hot flashes, and insomnia that often accompany “the change.” When we readjust your hormone levels, you can feel like yourself again. This can save both your sanity and your marriage.

Hormones can boost sex drive

Men may find they are losing the drive for sex as they age, but hormone replacement can rejuvenate the lust for life and love. It’s also good for women’s sexual health because it can increase natural lubrication and enhance sensory enjoyment. 

Hormones are a preventive health option

Proper hormone replacement therapy can help safeguard your health by reducing your chances of ailments like osteoporosis, dementia, and heart disease as you age. Better bone and mental health can add quality to your golden years.

Hormones can be delivered gradually

Some hormone treatments dump a massive amount of hormones into your system, making your levels peak then crash. With bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, we can recommend forms that slowly release into your body, keeping your levels ... well, level. 

Hormones can be customized

Dr. Chema carefully evaluates you and customizes your hormone treatment to give you exactly the therapy you need, no more and no less. By customizing your dosage of hormones, she can help you find and maintain at a level that works best for you.
