At AIYANA, we are always looking to meet the needs and desires of our clients. One thing we have noticed is that there is an overwhelming desire to not only care for ourselves on the outside, but the inside matters, too. That is where bioidentical hormones can play a huge role. As we age, starting in our 20s, our hormone levels start to decline. When we talk about hormones, most think of testosterone and estrogen. Those are vital hormones, but thyroid and vitamin D also play a role.
Testosterone and estrogen are 2 main players when it comes to aging. These 2 hormones start declining when we turn 20. With that comes many symptoms of hormone depletion, such as fatigue, irritability, weight gain, brain fog, decreased libido, memory loss and so on. The normal signs of aging, right? It doesn’t have to be. By replacing these depleted hormones with bioidentical, meaning the exact chemical makeup as what is already inside your body, we can recoup that depletion and revive your life. Aging no longer has to look like a downward spiral. In fact, you can get better with age, and we really mean it.
We have many hormones in our bodies. The main players are testosterone and estrogen, which are in fact the two that we will replace with bioidenticals. However, thyroid and even vitamin D can play a role in our overall health. Our thyroid function can cause symptoms of hot/cold intolerance, weight gain, brain fog, fatigue, etc. When our thyroid is not optimized, we can experience these symptoms and many more. As a 20 year old, our thyroid levels should be around 4-6, however, as a 40-50 year old, that range changes to 2-4. Why is this? At 40-50, or even 60, wouldn’t it be nice to feel 20? That is where thyroid optimization comes it. Determining the appropriate level of thyroid will allow you to feel better and healthier.
Vitamin D is thought to be a vitamin, when it fact it is actually a hormone. It is required to absorb calcium into the gut. It also plays a role in our levels of fatigue and brain fog. As for vitamin D, it is important, especially in the rainy Oregon climate, that it is optimized. Looking at your vitamin D levels can bring some insight into that constant brain fog and fatigue that may be going on.

Physical. As the body ages, it undergoes various hormonal changes that can affect health. Some of the common symptoms of hormonal imbalance include weight gain, memory decline, fatigue, and muscle loss. Bioidentical hormones may restore hormones to their optimal levels.
Mental. Low levels of testosterone in men or estrogen in women can lead to lower mental capacity, low mood, and brain fog, but the bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) method from BioTE® Medical may help relieve these symptoms and possibly improve cognitive function. As we age, it can be frustrating to deal with the loss of some cognitive function, but restoring hormone balance through BHRT may help avoid these cognitive losses and maintain a sharp mind.
Emotional. There are many emotional symptoms that might indicate that someone is dealing with hormonal imbalance, including mood changes, low mood, irritability, stress, and anxiousness. Our method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) has helped thousands of people across the U.S. improve their emotional state.
All in all, BioTE can help anyone who is experiencing these symptoms noted above. Book your consult today with our medical director to see if optimizing your hormones is right for you!
