Why Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy

Bio-identical hormone therapy or human identical hormone therapy provides therapeutic substances that are structurally the same as the hormones that your body is producing, or used to produce.

Hormones are at the core of the life functions, such as growth, aging, metabolism, and reproduction. Every hormone in your body works like a key in a lock. As people age, some of the functions begin to slow down because of the decrease in hormone production. Bio-identical hormones are like perfectly cut keys that open all the correct doors in your body, so they can possibly prevent or slow the effects of aging by restoring hormone function.

Important Hormones In Our Body

Hormones are very important in regulating the functions of the body and keeping us fit, healthy, sleeping well and feeling good. Here is a guide to the most important hormones for your health and body.

At QUANTUM Health Solutions we replace what you need to bring you back to balance.

Estradiol: An essential female sex hormone that is the predominant estrogen throughout a female’s reproductive years. Estradiol has a significant impact on reproductive and sexual function as well as on other organs, like the brain and bones.

Functions of Estradiol:

  • Increases metabolic rate
  • Improves body’s use of insulin
  • Regulates body temperature
  • Helps maintain muscle mass
  • Increases deep restful sleep
  • Maintains elastic properties of arteries

  • Maintains memory and increases concentration
  • Decreases blood pressure
  • Decreases LDL (Bad) cholesterol

  • Increases fine motor skills

  • Decreases arterial plaque buildup

  • Maintains collagen in skin
  • Enhances energy
  • Improves mood
  • Improves sexual interest

Progesterone: A key hormone for females, as progesterone is essential for fertility and maintaining a healthy level of libido. It also helps release stress and exert a calming, sedating effect, so it improves sleep and stabilizes emotions. Additionally, progesterone enhances the sensitivity of the body to insulin and the function of the thyroid hormones, including building bones and benefiting the cardiovascular system.

Functions of Progesterone:
• Improves onset of sleep
• Stabilizes emotions
• Regulates hair growth
• Support of the adrenal glands

Testosterone: An essential male hormone that stimulates the development of male characteristics. It plays an important role in both a man’s and a woman’s life: it enhances libido for both genders, increase bone density, and builds muscle strength.

Functions of Testosterone:

  • Maintains muscle mass
  • Protects bone
  • Improved sexual function and desire
  • Regulates blood pressure
  • Regulates blood sugar
  • Controls body composition
  • Stabilizes and elevates mood

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA): Also known as androstenolone, DHEA is a natural steroid and the most abundant circulating hormone. It is a building block for many other hormones in the body.  It supports our adrenal system, enhances our immune system, increases libido, improves motivation, engenders a sense of well-being, decreases pain, and enhances memory.

Functions of DHEA:

  • Supports immune function
  • Prevents plaque build-up in arteries
  • May help lower triglycerides
  • Enhances insulin sensitivity
  • Repairs muscle and bone tissue
  • Protects brain function
  • Enhances memory

Pregnenolone: Pregnenolone is one of the most important hormones within the body. Think of it as the raw material for many important hormones including all the steroid hormones like DHEA and progesterone.  Pregnenolone enhances memory, improves energy and supports our body’s reactions to stress.

Functions of Pregnenolone:

  • Enhances memory
  • Promotes a sense of well being
  • Increases energy
  • Supports adrenal function

Thyroid: Your thyroid releases two primary hormones, triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4), both of which control the metabolism, and affect all cells and organs within our body.

Functions of Thyroid:

  • Regulates sleep and wake cycles
  • Promotes healthy digestion
  • Enhances cognitive function and memory
  • Promotes weight stability
  • Regulates body temperature
