Immune Boosting: How Your Hormones Affect the Immune System

It’s normal for people to undergo changes in their bodies as they age, depending on the extent and the symptoms that can result. This doesn’t need to be something you have to live with if it brings you mental and physical discomfort. You may be an ideal candidate for hormone therapy, depending on the signs and symptoms. Hormone therapy helps resolve hormonal imbalances by identifying deficiencies and administering hormone replacements to remedy the lack. Here are some ways that hormone imbalances can affect you:

  • Mood changes such as irritability
  • Decreased libido
  • Fatigue
  • Erectile dysfunction

Additionally, a hormone imbalance can affect your immune system. Estrogen functions to enhance the immune system, while testosterone suppresses it. This is why an imbalance between these two hormones can affect your immune health. Hormones like estrogen and testosterone can directly interact with your immune response by controlling the circadian rhythm.1 Circadian rhythm refers to your body’s daily cycle regarding mental, physical, and behavioral changes. If your hormones are too high or too low, this can suppress your immune system. Our Hormone Zone team seeks to regulate your hormones at an optimal level that is not too high or too low to prevent the suppression of the immune system. If you have a hormone balance, it is important to give your immune system the boost it needs through hormone replacement therapy.

What You Can Do To Fix A Hormone Imbalance 

At Hormone Zone, we provide patients with hormone replacement therapy to balance their estrogen and testosterone for immune boosting. Hormones are the body’s messengers, delivering vital and complex signals to your entire body, orchestrating healing, recovery, regeneration, and optimal function and performance– including in the immune system. Without the proper hormone balance, the body begins to break down on a cellular level, leading to aging, dysfunction, and disease.

We have highly effective solutions to achieve sex hormone balance, particularly hormone pellet therapy and bioidentical hormone therapy. These two therapies can ensure optimal hormones, reducing the risk of a suppressed immune system. When thinking about hormone replacement therapy, it is important to have it conducted by a trained professional. Our experts are uniquely qualified to provide you with results-driven treatment and care. We provide professionally managed hormone replacement therapy complete with blood work reviews to ensure patients understand how their personalized treatment plan is working to treat their condition.

Now, we offer telemedicine appointments so that you can get the care you need from the comfort of your own home. Book an online consultation with us today to ensure your hormones are optimal.
