The mental symptoms of hormone imbalance can be frustrating and difficult to manage. Hormones are chemicals produced by glands in the endocrine system. Hormone imbalances happen when one of these glands is not functioning optimally and releases too much or too little of a hormone into the bloodstream. Because of the important role hormones play in regulating bodily functions, even a tiny hormonal imbalance can wreak havoc throughout the body.
The mental symptoms of hormone imbalance are inconvenient and frustrating, regardless of whether they are mild, moderate, or severe. Hormones regulate the processes within the body, including those in the brain, and even the slightest abnormality can have serious effects on our mental health. The mental symptoms of hormone imbalance include irritability and anxiousness, low mood, mood swings, mental fogginess, and more. Mental health is an important part of overall well-being and ignoring these symptoms may worsen the problem.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, also known as BHRT, can be an option to treat the symptoms of a hormonal imbalance because BHRT is used to raise hormones in the blood when levels are too low. Every hormone pellet inserted by a certified BioTE provider is customized to each individual patient’s needs based on extensive lab work and patient consultation. The pellets are inserted subcutaneously in a quick, simple procedure, and as the pellets dissolve and are absorbed by the body, they provide consistent relief for three to six months.
