The past year has been one of the most stressful most of us can remember. The changes that have accompanied the coronavirus pandemic have turned our world upside down. Working from home, virtual school, lockdowns, masks, political and social unrest are just a few of the things we have all been dealing with over the past year. As a physician, I have seen and personally experienced the increased stress, anxiety, sleeplessness, anger, depression and other issues that are plaguing us right now.
I can also tell you that my patients who have their hormones optimized are faring better as a whole than many of their peers. I have had many patients tell me how grateful they are not to be experiencing additional stress due to menopause, perimenopause or in the case of my male patients, testosterone deficiency. They also say they are able to be more calm, flexible and deal with the changes of the past year better than they think they would have otherwise.
Now, I am not going to tell you that hormone therapy can alleviate depression, anxiety or other emotional challenges that we face in this new world. What I will say is a body that is optimized hormonally can function, process and react in the way it was meant to when challenged with adversity. We all want to feel better, and while not a cure, hormone therapy very well may be a step in the right direction for you.
