As we age, and by the time most of us reach our 40s, our hormones naturally begin to decline.
This decline often leads to a hormonal imbalance, which can accelerate with factors like disease, improper nutrition, menopause, and stress.
Hormonal imbalance is a major reason for our physical and mental deterioration as we age.
It's important to know the symptoms of a hormonal imbalance so that we can recognize them when they occur in ourselves. Our body's naturally-occurring hormones can be replaced with safe, natural bioidentical hormones as we age. Hormone therapy is generally the most effective the earlier it begins.
What are Symptoms of a Hormonal Imbalance?
Hormone imbalance symptoms in both men and women frequently include:
- Mood Swings
- Low Sex Drive
- Weight Gain
- Muscle Mass Loss
- Memory Loss
- Hair Loss
These symptoms are common for both men and women as they age.
Symptoms of a Hormonal Imbalance in Women
In addition to the symptoms listed above, women tend to experience their own unique hormone imbalance symptoms. These often include vaginal dryness, endometriosis, and PMS.
Symptoms of a Hormonal Imbalance in Men
Common symptoms of hormone imbalance in men as they age include erectile dysfunction, urinary problems, and gynecomastia.
