Your adrenal glands produce hormones like adrenaline and cortisol that help get you through stressful situations. These chemicals get your body ready to fight or escape from danger, and can keep you focused and prepared in a crisis.
If you’ve been through acute or chronic stress recently, your system could be overstimulated and depleted, leading to uncomfortable symptoms of adrenal fatigue. Pushing your adrenal system to the max can leave you exhausted, burned out, and experiencing other symptoms of adrenal fatigue.
If you’re suffering from body aches, unexplained fatigue, sleep disturbances, digestive problems, or overall nervousness, the regenerative medicine specialists at BCS Medical of Bryan, Texas can provide the support and treatment you need. Our team experienced team uses bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to treat a variety of hormonal imbalances, including adrenal fatigue.
Running on adrenaline
While adrenal fatigue isn’t a formal medical diagnosis, the term describes the condition of your overall health and wellness after a period of running on adrenaline. Stress may result in adrenal insufficiency, as your adrenal glands work overtime to get you through tough times.
Eventually, your adrenal glands may not be able to keep pace, causing insufficient levels of adrenal hormones in your body. Adrenal insufficiency results in signs and symptoms including generalized body aches, low blood pressure, lightheadedness, fatigue, unexpected weight loss, body hair loss, and even skin discoloration.
The team at BCS Medical may be able to use blood testing to confirm adrenal insufficiency. With BHRT, the BCS Medical team can rebalance your hormone profile and restore your body to health and harmony.
Rebalancing your body
BHRT is a natural hormone therapy option that uses bioidentical hormones, with an identical chemical structure to those produced by your body. When you start your hormone therapy regimen, your body knows exactly how to respond to bioidentical hormones. You won’t need to worry about unwanted side effects, as you might with synthetic hormone treatment.
To create your custom hormone therapy plan, your provider at BCS Medical starts by conducting a hormone profile, identifying imbalances in your system. Depending on your unique treatment needs, you could benefit from hormone therapies to rebalance your levels of hormones, including cortisol, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA).
Once you start your BHRT, your body starts to respond to the hormones your treatment supplies. You may notice your symptoms of fatigue and nervousness lessening, your sleep and energy levels improving, and even see positive changes in your digestion and sex drive.
