What are hormones and what do they do?

Hormones work to coordinate many different functions within your body. Your system creates more than 50 distinct hormones, and men and women manufacture different levels. Some of your hormones, called sex hormones, control reproductive function.


As you move through the phases of life, your body will naturally begin to produce a lower volume of hormones. This creates an imbalance and triggers a wide range of changes that can be uncomfortable or disruptive. Many people report feeling disconnected to their body as hormones begin to fluctuate.

What are some signs of hormonal imbalance?

Hormonal imbalance occurs in both men and women. Some of the symptoms that can affect either sex include:

  • Weight gain
  • Depression
  • Increased hunger or thirst
  • Dry skin
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Changes in frequency of bowel movements
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle weakness

Some of the symptoms women may notice include:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Changes in menstrual bleeding
  • Acne on the chest, upper back, or face
  • Vaginal atrophy
  • Night sweats
  • Headaches

Some of the symptoms men may notice include:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Swollen, tender breast tissue
  • Osteoporosis
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Decrease in beard or body hair growth

Though hormonal changes are natural, you don’t have to accept these changes as an inevitable part of growing older.

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a treatment that seeks to supplement your natural hormone production in an effort to achieve optimal balance. The treatment uses synthetic hormones to reach and sustain balance, thereby managing the symptoms of decreased hormone production.

The hormones used at More Than Medical Wellness are manufactured from plant sources. They are chemically identical to the hormones your body creates naturally. In fact, your body cannot detect the difference between your hormones and the bioidentical supplemental hormones.

This treatment may be an appealing option for those who want to use plant-sourced hormones as opposed to products created using animal sources. For example, there is an animal option which is made using the urine of pregnant horses.

How long does it take for biological hormone replacement to work?

Hormone replacement therapy is a highly individualized process. Your body might respond differently than others, including close relatives.

It may take a period of trial and error to find the right hormone replacement therapy approach. It takes time to see how the supplemental hormones will work and which levels offer the best symptom improvement.

As you navigate the process, you’ll have the guidance and support of the More Than Medical Wellness team. If questions or concerns arise, you’ll know where to turn to for answers.
