Hormone EDGE | Dr. A&B Wellness | Wellington, FL - Premier Wellness

Everyone wants to stay healthy and active for as long as possible, but as you age, your body produces fewer hormones, and this can negatively impact your wellness. The board-certified physicians and clinical staff here at Dr. A&B Wellness in Wellington Florida offer bioidentical hormone balancing therapy,  with their Hormone EDGE program, to restore your vitality and reduce disruptive symptoms like libido loss and hot flashes.

As you age your hormone levels decrease, leading to a variety of symptoms that interfere with your health and vitality. Our hormone therapy is a highly personalized treatment to replenish your body’s hormone levels and reduce or eliminate your symptoms. The team at Dr. A&B Wellness uses custom-made hormone pellets to replace the estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and thyroid hormones that your body is no longer producing.

Unless you already have blood work, we advise clicking the link above to schedule a bioidentical hormones test before purchasing your pellet treatment.

Everyone will experience natural periods of hormonal imbalance or fluctuations at particular points in their life.

But hormonal imbalances can also occur when the endocrine glands are not functioning properly.

Endocrine glands are specialized cells that produce, store, and release hormones into the blood. There are several endocrine glands located throughout the body that control different organs, including the:

• adrenal glands

• gonads (testis and ovaries)

• pineal gland

• pituitary gland

• hypothalamus gland

• thyroid and parathyroid glands

• pancreatic islets

Several medical conditions are known to impact some, or several, of the endocrine glands. Certain lifestyle habits and environmental factors may also play a role in hormonal imbalances.

Causes of hormonal imbalances include:

• chronic or extreme stress

• type 1 and type 2 diabetes

• hyperglycemia (overproduction of glucagon)

• hypoglycemia (more insulin produced than there is glucose in the blood)

• underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism)

• overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism)

• over- or underproduction of the parathyroid hormone

• poor diet and nutrition

• being overweight

• hormonal replacement or birth control medications

• abuse of anabolic steroid medications

• solitary thyroid nodules

• pituitary tumors

• Cushing’s syndrome (high levels of the hormone cortisol)

• Addison’s disease (low levels of cortisol and aldosterone)

• benign tumors and cysts (fluid-filled sacks) that affect the endocrine glands

• congenital adrenal hyperplasia (low levels of cortisol)

• endocrine gland injury

• severe allergic reactions or infections

• cancers that involve endocrine glands

• chemotherapy and radiation therapy

• iodine deficiency (goiters)

• hereditary pancreatitis

• Turner syndrome (females with only one functioning X chromosome)

• Prader-Willi syndrome

• anorexia

• phytoestrogens, naturally-occurring plant estrogens found in soy products

• exposure to toxins, pollutants, and endocrine disrupting chemicals, including pesticides and herbicides
