The role of hormones and your health
Learning Center » Estrogen
"Estrogen is often called the 'soft' hormone because it keeps the skin and the personality of a woman soft."
Estrogen is commonly though of as the "female hormone." It has also been said that estrogen is the "soft" hormone because it keeps the skin and the personality of a woman soft. Women who use estrogen therapy not only look better, they are better.
For more than 40 years women have taken this hormone to prevent hot flashes, vaginal dryness, rapid aging, wrinkly skin, anxiety, weight gain, insomnia, incontinence (leaky bladder) and a host of other menopausal symptoms. Low levels of estrogen often diminish memory after the age of 35. Natural estrogens (not synthetic) protect against heart disease in women that are over 35.
At the Center for Hormonal Healing™ in Birmingham, AL, we carefully evaluate and monitor your estrogen levels to ensure the appropriate balance for your particular needs. We do not believe in the "one size fits all" mentality; rather, we believe each individual is unique and requires personalized care.
