Need to Know: Hormones and Breast Cancer

As we continue to live well and age beautifully, balanced hormones are necessary for good health and disease prevention in both women and men. It is amazing how your hormones can affect many parts of your life causing you to lose yourself mentally, physically, and emotionally. Common symptoms for hormonal imbalance include night sweats, mind fog, low sex drive, lack of focus, belly fat and so much more.

At MiBella Wellness Center,
we take a comprehensive approach
to hormone replacement therapy.

Each patient must have a consultation prior to being treated for hormonal imbalance. It is important to note that all health care providers are not created equal, and as a board-certified physician and trained hormone specialist, Dr. Mia does a thorough evaluation to customize therapy plans based on individual needs. Patients are also required to have followed up blood work to ensure the treatment plan is improving hormonal levels.

Because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we should also mention hormone treatment options for women in remission. Here’s the deal, breast cancer patients in remission should avoid estrogen and progesterone. Thereby using testosterone with anastrozole is the recommended treatment because it will protect the breast and decrease the chances of reoccurrence. Hormone replacement therapy has many positive benefits, and if a breast cancer survivor is having the common symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance, please seek the advice of a health care professional particularly someone who understands the full scope of hormone replacement therapy.
