“100% I would recommend it. I think it’s been a remarkable experience for me, and I would say that doing a little research to find out
what areas could most impact that particular person’s face is paramount. You need to know what your expectations are and have real expectations. But I would definitely encourage anyone who’s interested” – Heather H.
“It was actually so much less invasive or intense than I thought it would be. There were times that I almost fell asleep during some of the procedure. It honestly just has astounded me. I couldn’t be happier.” – Sherri W.
CortisolStress can make me sick? It turns out the "fight or flight" response that once helped protect our early ancestors in times of peril is now turning against us and running us ragged. Cortisol helps to prepare the body for potentially life-threatening situations. Unfortunately, many women live stressful lives and these daily stressors often trigger the release of cortisol. Are you sluggish during the day and restless at night? Are you depressed or anxious and don't know why? If so, a cortisol imbalance may be to blame. Cortisol is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands, which sit atop the kidneys. The hormone has earned the nickname "the stress hormone," because it's released as the body's natural response to stress. Cortisol can be helpful in the short term, but chronic stress can cause the adrenal glands to become overworked and often leads to a medical condition known as adrenal fatigue. While stress affects women and men alike, women are more susceptible to the effects of chronic stress and cortisol imbalance. Women have a lot of roles to perform. As caretakers, nurturers, wives, mothers, and many times business professionals, juggling it all can become overwhelming. When you factor in the hormonal changes women face as they age, the combination can really get the cortisol pumping. Symptoms of cortisol imbalance in women are similar to those typified by other hormonal imbalances such as perimenopause and menopause and often include the following:
- Weight gain
- Bone and muscle loss
- Foggy thinking
DHEAMeet the Mother of all Hormones ~ Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) may be a big word for a small hormone, but in appropriate levels this potent hormone has powerful anti-aging effects for the entire body. DHEA is often referred to as the ‘mother of all hormones’ because it fuels the hormone pathway, a term referring to the body's delicate interplay of hormones. DHEA increases a person’s muscle mass, bone growth and promotes fat burning in the body. It also improves memory and boosts the immune system. The key is to maintain proper levels. Women depend on adequate levels of DHEA to balance other key hormones throughout the body, such as estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. DHEA in women is produced by the adrenal glands, two small glands that sit atop the kidneys. As women age, the DHEA levels and most other hormones begin to decline. But age isn't the only culprit. DHEA, as well as cortisol and adrenaline, is produced in the adrenals. Although we rely on hormones like cortisol and adrenaline to assist in the body’s ‘fight or flight’ response to stress and to prepare the body for stressful situations, chronic stress can cause the adrenal glands to work overtime. While the adrenals are preoccupied pumping out large quantities of cortisol and adrenaline, they can't produce enough DHEA for your body. Low levels of DHEA in women can cause symptoms including:
- Weight gain
- Aching joints
- Low libido
- Boost libido
- Rebuild muscle mass
- Lose weight
- Improve memory
- Boost the immune system
- Promote flexibility
- Raise energy levels
EstriolBig things come in small packages. Estriol is known as the weak sister of the estrogen trio (estradiol, estrone and estriol), BUT don't be fooled. Maybe you've heard of the "butterfly effect," in which "small variations of the initial condition of a dynamic system may produce large variations in the long term behavior of the system." In other words, sometimes something small or weak can make a major difference. That definitely applies to the use of estriol in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy! Three forms of estrogen occur naturally in a woman's body. The ovary produces a form named estradiol, which is converted into another important estrogen called estrone. Estriol, yet another form of estrogen metabolized from estradiol, is not as strong at the other two estrogens but is still active and essential. Estriol is most commonly linked to pregnancy because it is produced in the most measurable amounts during that time. Estriol is still present throughout a woman's lifetime at varying levels and will fluctuate throughout the day. Because estriol has been considered a by-product of another form of estrogen and too weak to actually matter, it has been largely overlooked as a beneficial piece of the hormone pie. Studies suggest estriol can help reduce a variety of symptoms associated with perimenopause and menopause, including:
- Hot flashes
- Vaginal dryness
- Bone density
