These are all ways to help keep your hormones in balance and maintain that state. Many times your system may need to be reset first through hormone replacement. Bioidentical hormone replacement tends to have fewer side effects and be more efficacious than traditional hormone therapy which uses synthetic hormones because of how the bioidentical hormones more closely mimic those in the human body. It’s worth coming into your favorite integrative and functional medicine clinic in Atlanta, Progressive Medical Center to get checked- especially if you’ve been feeling stressed, fatigued, or out of sorts.
