Midlife can be a little infuriating! Just as soon as you’ve got yourself halfway figured out…along comes the spare tire, diminished sex drive and all-around exhaustion. You deserve none of it. You work out and watch your calories. You’re the first one to pass on dessert. So what gives?
Dr. Lance Campbell, Pharm. D., R.Ph. of Campbell’s Compounding Pharmacy sees middle-aged stress-related hormone depletion all the time. “Especially this time of year when moms and dads are trying to get their kids back in the school routine!” says Dr. Campbell. “It is entirely possible to be so exhausted that you can’t sleep. Being sleep deprived exacerbates the problem of weight gain, because your body releases more cortisol from your adrenal glands and that affects your metabolism. It can also lead to decreased muscle mass, elevated blood pressure and suppressed thyroid function.”
“Drops in hormone levels are not the exclusive problem of women,” continues Dr. Campbell. “They impact men too. In men, waning testosterone can wreak havoc in their lives and is frequently an underlying cause of depression. Hormone imbalances in women make for night sweats, endometriosis and fibrocystic breast disease–and that’s in addition to the bathroom scale inching higher and higher.”
But what’s the solution? “Once a hormonal imbalance is diagnosed,” says Dr. Campbell, “it can be treated with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). You can literally get your life back and feel like your old self again with energy to spare. At Campbell’s Compounding Pharmacy, we prepare a customized formula just for you and follow up to make sure you are getting the relief you need. That’s the beauty of compounding…we have a lot more latitude in how both the medication is delivered to your system and its dosage…it’s truly customized medication.”
Want to learn more? Schedule a one hour consultation with Dr. Campbell where he can explain the fundamentals of BHRT and how it could improve your health. You will have the opportunity to discuss any concerns you have, and really get your life back in balance!
