1) Your Endocrine Glands and Hormones

The glands and organs of your endocrine system, located throughout your body, secrete and regulate hormones. When everything is functioning well, your health is stronger.

However, several factors including age, various diseases, stress, genetics and environmental factors can affect how your endocrine system functions, leading to a hormone imbalance or a number of other health consequences.


Endocrine Glands and Types of Hormones


Your endocrine system consists of a network of glands and organs. Each one produces and secretes hormones which help regulate various bodily functions and maintain homeostasis, or balance in your body. When a gland or organ doesn’t operate properly, hormone imbalance and other health issues can occur. Although the endocrine system is comprised of 10 glands and organs, an issue with just one can cause a hormone imbalance and affect many areas of your body.

While hormone imbalance can cause unpleasant symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, low libido and memory loss, there are treatment options available. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is one option that can be used to restore your hormones to their optimal levels.

Bioidentical hormones are derived from naturally-occurring substances and are designed to replicate the chemical structure of the hormones that are produced naturally by your body.
