What Causes Fatigue?
Fatigue is one of the most common symptoms of hormone imbalance that lead women to seek help from their doctors during perimenopause and menopause. Fatigue is defined as an overall tired feeling, a constant lack of energy throughout the day, waking up more tired than when you went to sleep, or the feeling that the mind willing to do things while the body fails to follow. Depriving you of the energy you need to fulfill life’s daily demands, fatigue is a constant strain as you try to balance and enjoy your life.
Many women consider fatigue a normal result of aging, yet fatigue is not necessarily a requirement of age.
Fatigue is caused by a variety of symptoms initiated and physiologically enhanced by hormonal imbalances, including:
The Role of Hormones
Fatigue is a direct outcome and presents with the symptoms caused by the hormonal imbalance in the sex hormones: estrogen, progesterone and testosterone . Low estrogen levels during menopause invariably cause insomnia, hot flashes and mood swings, which in turn cause exhaustion and a general feeling of “tired to the bone” fatigue. In addition, insufficient levels of estrogen, thyroid, testosterone and imbalanced cortisol and insulin are connected to fatigue and result in sedentary lifestyles, poor nutrition and overall deterioration which translates into weight gain, bloating, depression, sleep disorders, joint pains, loss of libido and eventually chronic illnesses most often identified with aging yet triggered by unattended to hormone imbalance.
Bioidentical hormone therapy has been identified in numerous studies and evidence based clinical trials to be a natural solution for rebalancing your hormone levels, increasing your energy levels and relieving the affects of fatigue as well as preventing the deterioration caused by poor nutrition and sedentary lifestyles that initiate the development of chronic illness.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) with natural hormones provides a gentle, safe and effective way to restore hormonal balance, relieving many of the symptoms associated with aging, including fatigure, and resulting in the recovery of youth and vitality.
Unlike the synthetic hormones, which are produced from pregnant mare’s urine and have been found to have long-term negative effects on women's health, bioidentical hormones are exact replicas of the hormones produced naturally by our bodies.
Diet, exercise, and proper nutritional supplementation can also play an important role in increasing energy level, relieving fatigue, improving overall health, and preventing chronic illnesses from taking hold with the aging process.
