Are you losing your mind or feeling like you are not in control of your own mood? Is your body going through unwanted changes and appearance?

You are not alone!

Millions of women have suffered through these changes for centuries.  They have wondered why their brain is out of sync or why their bodies react in “unnatural” ways!

If any of this sounds familiar, you can relax! Unlike our predecessors, now we have a much better understanding of why it happens and have found a solution so that you don’t have to struggle through it.

It’s hormone imbalance, a natural consequence of spending decades on the planet!

Thankfully today, there is a remedy that can help you escape the hormone imbalance misery and allow you to be yourself again!

By now, you must be wondering… How do I balance my hormones?

First, let’s take a look at the common hormone deficiency symptoms associated with aging.  If you can identify with any of the signs or symptoms, then you will be on your way to finding the right solution to feeling your best again.

Estrogen Deficiency Symptoms

Estrogen is the dominant female hormone and controls a woman’s menstrual cycle. As you know, declining estrogen is a natural process of aging. Deficiency signs include:

Fatigue, Exhaustion

These feelings often don’t go away, even after napping, and are often estrogen-deficiency related.

Hair Loss

Thinning hair often occurs in women as they approach middle age. It can result because healthy estrogen levels have decreased and estrogen is needed to maintain proper hair growth.

Hot Flashes

Hot flashes are one of the most common complaints of menopausal women. They are marked by excessive sweating and a racing heartbeat that comes on suddenly and without reason or explanation.


Estrogen helps women maintain their bone density and dipping estrogen levels at menopause can cause the bones to become weak and brittle.

Poor Sex Drive, Vaginal Dryness

Women with reduced estrogen levels can lose interest in sex, and many experience vaginal dryness as estrogen goes below normal levels. Sexual intercourse can be painful.

Mood Swings, Poor Memory

Mood fluctuations can result from hormonal imbalances. Moods may fluctuate from extreme elation to serious depression. Memory can become weak as the hormones decline.

Sleep Problems

A decline in naturally occurring estrogen can result in insomnia or waking up often during the night. Women report frequently “throwing off the blankets” in the middle of the night due to a hot flash.

Urinary Infection, Incontinence

Estrogen inadequacy can cause urinary tract infections because body chemistry has changed and the bladder has difficulty handling the bacteria. Incontinence is common as reduced estrogen levels trigger involuntary urination.

Weight Gain

As the ovaries stop making estrogen, the body speeds up the conversion of calories into fat. This often causes an increase in weight.

Progesterone Deficiency Symptoms

Progesterone’s main job is to prepare the uterus lining for pregnancy after ovulation. Like estrogen, it decreases during menopause. Deficiency signs include:


Many women, even at menopause, experience acne from a lack of progesterone.

Brittle Nails, Dry Cracked Skin

Dry skin and brittle nails can manifest as a result of menopause. Characteristic signs are nails that crack, nails that peel or nails that easily become chipped.

Depression & Mood Swings

Just like estrogen deficiency, emotional fluctuations can be triggered by low progesterone.

Migraines, Headaches

Migraines and headaches sometimes manifest for women during or as they approach menopause.

Weight Gain

The reduction of all the female hormones can result in weight gain, particularly around the midsection.

Who Knew? Women Need Testosterone Too!

This “normally considered male hormone” is present in women in small amounts, and it’s vital to maintaining healthy hormone levels.

Fatigue, Exhaustion, Difficulty Sleeping

Constant fatigue and feeling drained are related to decreased testosterone. If you have trouble sleeping through the night or wake up frequently, in addition to estrogen, think testosterone.

Hair Loss

Just like with estrogen deficiency, low testosterone can cause thinning hair.

Mood Swings, Depression, Anxiety, Difficulty Concentrating

Like the other hormones, all of these symptoms can point out the need for testosterone.

Weight Issues

Low testosterone levels can cause muscle loss and progressive weight gain. Often, this manifests in midlife. Just like men, testosterone in women helps keep you fit and strong.

You Don’t Have to Suffer Any Longer

The natural process of aging results in decreased levels of estrogen, progesterone, and even testosterone.

To remedy the recurrent and often “miserable” symptoms, you may have tried it all: supplements, creams, and potions that were guaranteed to work — but they didn’t work or could not deliver consistent relief throughout the day.

Maybe it’s time you consider Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), a medical treatment that is scientifically proven, has helped millions of women, and is recommended by natural-oriented pharmacists, physicians, and “women in the know.”

These natural hormones are derived from plant compounds, natural substances that closely mimic the hormones your body creates. Hormone therapies have progressed “leaps and bounds” from the synthetic hormones of past generations, and they follow closely the words of the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates who said, “First, Do No Harm.”

Are You Ready to Feel Like Yourself Again?

So there you have it!

The short and long lists of annoying symptoms can result from a lack of one or all three female hormones. Would you like to bypass these troublesome symptoms and feel even-keeled, happy, and trim during your middle years? Then think Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy!

No matter what your personal hormone-deficiency symptoms are, BHRT is a solution that can drastically reduce them, allowing you to “breeze right on through” menopause. And by the way, if you are not yet at menopause age but have PMS symptoms, BHRT might be right for you, too!

So if you’re ready to feel great again, find out about Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Thousands of women have done just that, and they’ve never looked back!

Why not call your doctor today for a complete evaluation, and learn how you can beat the unwanted changes caused by aging with BHRT?

There is no time like the present!
