What should you know about hormones?
Your body’s hormones control most of your basic bodily functions. They serve as an internal communication system between cells throughout the body. They coordinate everything from digestion and growth to your appetite, immune function, mood, and libido. So, when your hormones are out of balance, even slightly, it can have a big impact on your health and well-being.
Each part of your body – from your brain to your skin, your heart, your kidneys, and your muscles has a specific function. The body takes direction from your endocrine system to function properly. The glands of the endocrine system send out hormones that tell each part of your body what to do, when to do it, and for how long. They work slowly, over time, and affect many different processes in the body including:
- Growth and development
- Metabolism – how your body gets energy from the foods you eat
- Sexual function
- Virtually every bodily function
There are a variety of reasons why our hormones get out of balance, especially as we age. Those imbalances can lead to problems like diabetes, weight gain or loss, infertility, weak bones, and a variety of other problems causing our bodies and our mind to function poorly.

Men & Hormones
Men’s hormones play a big role in energy level, weight maintenance, bone density, and fertility. Over time, decreasing testosterone levels may cause a man to lose body hair, muscle mass, cause osteoporosis (weak bones), low red blood cells and smaller testes leading to fatigue, lack of focus and energy, weight gain, decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, breast enlargement, and mood swings.

Hormones can have many important effects on women’s health. The female sex hormones, estrogen and progesterone, are most well known because their influence on a woman’s reproductive health, from menstruation to pregnancy to menopause and beyond. But a woman’s body also makes and uses many other kinds of hormones that affect other aspects of health—from energy level, sleep, weight, mood, sex drive, and or sexual function. At Re-new, we help women restore the proper hormone balance allowing you to feel like you again with a wide variety of treatment options that support overall well-being, health, and happiness.
Bioidentical hormones are different from those used in traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) in that they’re identical chemically to those our bodies produce naturally. Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a personalized option we offer at Re-new for Women and Men. Unlike their synthetic counterparts, bio-identical hormones are compounded or created for each distinct person, allowing an individualized and tailored approach to treat hormone imbalances.
