Did you know that many people who suffer from depression may actually be suffering from a hormone imbalance? An underactive thyroid gland will not produce enough T3 or T4 hormones to properly regulate your body’s metabolism, which can have a much larger effect on your health than simple weight gain. If you believe that you may be suffering from depression due to a hormone imbalance instead of an imbalance in your brain chemistry, you could be a great candidate for hormone therapy for depression at Juvia Med Spa.
What Does the Thyroid Gland Do?
To understand how a lack of thyroid hormones might cause symptoms of depression, we must first discuss what the thyroid gland does and how T3 and T4 hormones help your physical and mental health. These hormones regulate the way the body absorbs, filters, uses, and disposes of the calories you take in. Essentially, they govern your metabolism.
If everything is in good working order, and your thyroid gland is producing the right number of hormones on a regular basis, you should have no trouble maintaining a healthy weight with normal diet and exercise. On the other hand, if your thyroid does not produce enough T3 and T4 hormones, a disorder called hypothyroidism, then you will likely experience a number of unpleasant symptoms. These include but are not limited to:
Many of these symptoms are depressing enough, but when you put them together they can easily convince almost anyone that you have a case of clinical depression. Of course, if you have depression due to a hormone imbalance, then normal anti-depressants and therapy won’t be the right answer. However, the best remedy for the cause of your depression may actually be bioidentical hormone therapy.
How Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Works
With bioidentical hormone therapy, you will take a simple pill that’s made up of the exact same T3 and T4 hormones that your body produces naturally. Thus, you’ll feel completely normal and you will notice your symptoms starting to fade away almost immediately. Not only will you begin to feel more vibrant and energetic again, but you’ll also find it easier to lose weight, and you may even notice that you look younger and more energetic, too.
