So, you’re trying to lose weight. With the New Year creeping up on us, you’ll find that most everyone is trying to lose at least a little weight. But the solution to weight loss transcends dieting and exercising: Your struggle with losing weight could be due to issues in your thyroid, your adrenal and your insulin levels.
Compounding is a way that can help you counter these issues in your thyroid, adrenal and insulin glands – the issues that are keeping you from being the healthiest version of yourself. Pharmacy compounding is a way of personalizing the dosage of your medicine.
General physicians typically prescribe medications to their patients that are one-size-fits-all. However, you’re your own person, with unique needs. Not everyone will have the same type of hormone problems that you’re experiencing, and you’re going to need medicine that can meet you where you are.
Here are three ways compounding can help you attain your weight loss goals through hormone therapy:
1. Compounding can help with weight loss by maintaining your thyroid levels
Hypothyroidism means that you have low levels of your thyroid hormone, which causes fatigue, fluid retention, constipation, sore joints and muscles, depression, slowed metabolism and weight gain. Besides the actual weight gain side effect of hypothyroidism, you have all these other symptoms that make you too tired or too depressed to physically work off the weight. It causes a lot of problems.
Compounding can help with these issues by supplying your body with a series of natural thyroid hormones. Compounding can, in a way, trick your body into thinking it’s producing the natural thyroid hormones it needs to supply you with energy and heighten your metabolism. General prescriptions for synthetic thyroid hormones make an effort to combat the symptoms of hypothyroidism that lead to obesity, but not nearly to the extent to which natural thyroid hormones can help.
2. Compounding can help with weight loss by restoring your adrenal glands
Similarly, adrenal hormone dysfunction also causes weight gain. Adrenal issues start to appear once people hit middle age. Particularly, a disorder called Adrenal Fatigue leads to many serious health issues such as allergies, autoimmune disorders, cancer and obesity.
Your adrenal glands are partly responsible for turning your carbohydrates and fats into energy, but Adrenal Fatigue stops the transformation process and causes your body to retain the fats. What’s more is that if you’re not feeling like your usual, healthy self, then you’re probably not feeling up to going to the gym to work off some of the weight you’ve gained since your adrenal glands started malfunctioning.
Compounding, creating natural adrenal hormones that are measured according to your unique needs, can help restore your adrenal glands over time to their rightful condition. By supplying your adrenal glands with the hormones they needs to function properly, your body will start processing carbs and fats as energy again, which will not only keep you from gaining more weight, but it will also give you the energy you need to work off the weight that you gained.
3. Compounding can help with weight loss by healing your impaired insulin glands
You might recognize insulin as the gland that is associated with diabetes. Diabetes is a disorder that results when your pancreas stops producing the proper amounts of insulin, which keeps your body from regulating your blood sugar levels the way it’s supposed to. What’s more is that insulin is also what’s responsible for keeping your metabolism at a healthy pace. If your insulin levels are depleted, then your metabolism will plummet as well, causing you to gain weight.
Hormone therapy that results from pharmacy compounding can be the weight loss solution you’ve been waiting for. By restoring your body’s insulin levels to their rightful condition, you’ll be able to process blood sugars the way that you’re supposed to, which will cause your metabolism to go up. This will not only keep you from gaining more weight, but it will also help you lose weight during the process, without lifting a single dumbbell or running a single mile.
