Hormones are powerful chemical messengers that regulate many essential bodily functions. They are produced by endocrine glands and released into the bloodstream, communicating vital information to cells and tissues. Hormone therapy involves administering hormones to supplement low levels or block overproduction, restoring balance.
When hormones fall out of balance, wide-ranging symptoms can result. Health depends greatly on having proper hormone levels - they influence sleep, mood, sexual function, metabolism, growth and much more.
