As each year goes by, I’ve realized how important optimum health is to the way I feel, the energy I have, and my overall mental state throughout the day. As women, and men, we are pulled in so many directions from tending to our family and homes, to pursuing our passions, to providing income for the family budget as well. I have long been a proponent of utilizing creative but effective ways to help with overall energy and the health of our bodies, but I’ve recently been introduced to another way to maintain great health and that’s through maintaining optimal hormone levels.
This post is sponsored by Epoch Health; however, all opinions are my own.
Epoch Health has 5 different clinic locations in Arkansas; however, I decided to visit the clinic located in Little Rock, AR. They have a unique focus that meets the needs of both men and women. They are committed to helping achieve a healthy balance in life through hormone optimization. This whole concept is so interesting to me, and the more I’ve learned, the more I’ve realized that this can help so many people, so I’m excited to share about optimal hormone levels today.
In the past six months, I have been feeling stressed, and I’ve had low energy, mental fatigue, and more recently a little weight gain! I just haven’t been feeling my best, so when I heard that Epoch offers free health assessments that investigate the root cause of symptoms like this, I couldn’t wait to visit their office. I was also excited to learn that they provide these assessments for men and women alike, so I had my husband Brian join me.
Their mission is to provide medical treatments, regular screenings and lifestyle modifications that help people like me get back to a healthier, happier way of life through screening for optimal hormone levels, among other things. Their screenings include: CMP, CBC, Thyroid, Cholesterol, PSA, Hormone Analysis, Vitamin D, Hemoglobin A1C, and Urinary Analysis. It’s really a comprehensive look at overall health.
I went in to their local office for the screening and it didn’t take long at all. They simply took my weight, my blood pressure, and completed some lab samples. They called me back in just two days with my full results, which is an impressive turnaround time.
I was interested to learn that my Vitamin D levels were low, which can cause fatigue. In addition, my estrogen levels were low as well, which can cause the very symptoms I’ve been feeling. I know if I am having these type of health issues, perhaps some of my readers are as well.
It was interesting to learn that the hormone levels in our body can impact overall health and mental well-being. Following the free screening, Epoch then provides a personalized plan for care to achieve optimal hormone levels. They offer options for testosterone and estrogen replacement therapy, and they follow up with testing to track symptoms and continue to assess your various levels.
It’s not a one visit and done type of healthcare, they continue to follow and track your progress over the course of a year, and afterward as well. I’m just so impressed with their attention to detail, and their goal of ensuring their patients see results.
They’ve developed and documented the best practices created and managed by primary care physicians, board-certified urologists and USAF flight surgeons. Their hormone pellet therapy can help with mental clarity, weight loss, fatigue, among other things.
Pellets are tiny, custom-compounded therapies that address symptoms stemming from hormonal imbalances. This keeps hormone levels consistent throughout the day, so you can avoid rollercoaster-like effects from orally administered or topically administered hormones. They contain hormones identical to those found in our bodies and this type of hormone therapy shows fewer side effects than synthetic hormones.
If you have been feeling any of the symptoms I mentioned, or just not performing at the level you would like, I encourage both men and women to take advantage of their free health screenings and utilize their services to improve both your mental health and overall health!
Thanks so much for reading along today, I hope this gives you some great information on staying healthy through maintaining optimal hormone levels, here is a pin to save for later!
