Are there proven principles that lead to the restoration and optimization of female hormones?
Female Hormonal Optimization Therapy (HOT) is based on four key principles that provide a solution to this problem:
Restoring optimal hormone levels requires the use of hormones that are identical to those produced in the (human) female body.
These contrast with synthetic hormones which are manufactured by making slight modifications to a natural human hormone for commercial reasons of getting a patent. However, these modifications can have side-effects such as inflammation, blood-clots, fluid-retention, pulmonary embolism, heart attack, stroke, and cancer.
Bioidentical hormones are made from botanical sources and are not patentable. They have fewer health risks compared to synthetic hormones.
Optimizing a female’s hormone levels should replicate (i.e. mimic) the rhythmic waves of a young woman’s natural hormone cycle. Ignoring this would result in hormonal dysfunction and bodily diseases.
The female hormone cycle shown below should not be disrupted when hormonal therapy is prescribed by doctors.
Synthetic hormones don’t factor in natural hormone levels during the monthly cycle, and where the woman is within the cycle. They just keep releasing hormones without accounting for the other hormones that play an important role in the menstrual cycle.
Optimizing a female’s hormone levels should lead to a hormonal balance that allows the female to feel youthful again.
Every biological system in the body, like metabolism and hormone levels, seeks stability and balance.
The body continuously gravitates towards homeostasis which is the body’s drive to maintain normal cycles, rhythms, and an overall balance. Maintaining the natural balance and harmony within the female hormone cycle is imperative for excellent mental and physical health. Hormonal imbalance invariably leads to chronic diseases.
Hormone prescriptions disrupt normal biorhythms and hormonal balances, resulting in hormonal excesses or deficiencies. Balanced hormones offer protection against bodily dysfunction and are critical to improving health and preventing disease.
Female hormone optimization should be administered in transdermal form (i.e., on the skin), or in a similar form that avoids the negative consequences of the first-pass metabolism in the liver when using oral medication.
Some oral medications may cause specific liver enzyme issues due to the way they break down in the liver, which compromises the liver’s metabolic capabilities. In transdermal administration, hormones are delivered across the skin into the bloodstream, where they bind to receptors throughout the body and deliver their positive health effects.
Applying these four key principles will protect women from the common mistreatments perpetrated by well-meaning providers. A state-of-the-art compounded female HOT solution for employing these principles is described in the book “The Testosterone Optimization Therapy Bible: The Ultimate Guide to Living a Fully Optimized Life” by Jay Campbell and Jim Brown.
A few quick empowerment tips that are extremely helpful when used alongside female HOT are:
- Love yourself
- Invest time for yourself
- Have fun
- Get comfortable and cozy with change
- Get comfortable with the truth
In summary, restoring and optimizing female hormones can be achieved by applying the tried and tested principles mentioned above. It provides a natural approach to a better life filled with health, wellness, and vitality.
