Hormones control most bodily processes and functions, so when just one of them becomes out of balance, it can affect our entire body, as well as our mood and emotional state. Keep reading to learn more about how a hormonal imbalance can affect our emotional state, and how the BioTE method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) may help.
Hyperthyroidism, a condition where the thyroid becomes overactive, and hypothyroidism, in which the thyroid is underactive, can both cause anxiousness, moodiness, and panic attacks. Imbalances in the body’s stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol can cause a variety of emotional symptoms including low mood, anxiousness, moodiness, jitteriness, irritability, and difficulty concentrating.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, also known as BHRT, may help restore the body’s hormones to their proper levels. Using grain of rice-sized pellets that are dosed for each patient’s needs, these pellets are inserted subcutaneously in a quick, in-office insertion. The pellets then dissolve and are absorbed into the body, providing dosages of hormones for three to six months. BHRT may help to improve hormone imbalance, as well as the accompanying emotional symptoms.
