Balancing Hormones for a Better Mood


Published June 12, 2024

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) involves using hormones structurally identical to those naturally produced in the body. While BHRT is primarily associated with addressing symptoms related to hormonal imbalances (such as menopause or andropause), there is some evidence suggesting that hormonal balance can influence mood.

However, it’s important to note that the relationship between hormones and mood is complex, and individual responses can vary. Hormones, including estrogen and progesterone, can influence neurotransmitters in the brain, such as serotonin, which regulates mood.

If you are considering BHRT to help regulate your mood, it’s crucial to consult with a qualified healthcare professional. They can assess your specific hormonal levels and overall health and discuss your symptoms and concerns in detail.

What You Should Consider:

Is BHRT Right for Me?

Individual Variation

Responses to hormone therapy can vary among individuals. What works for one person may not work the same way for another.

Professional Guidance

Only a qualified healthcare provider, like a BodyLogicMD practitioner, can determine if BHRT is suitable for you. They will consider your medical history, conduct appropriate testing, and tailor the treatment to your specific needs.

Mood Regulation

While some evidence suggests a link between hormones and mood, the effects of BHRT on mood can be multifaceted. It may help some individuals, but it’s not a guaranteed solution for everyone.

Comprehensive Approach

Managing moods may also involve lifestyle factors, stress management, and psychological support. BHRT could be part of a comprehensive approach if deemed appropriate.

Always prioritize open communication with your healthcare provider to discuss your symptoms, concerns, and any potential treatment options. They can guide you on the most suitable course of action based on your individual health profile.

  • “Since I became a patient of Dr. Schultz and FINALLY found someone who could balance my hormones, I HAVE FELT BETTER THAN I DID WHEN I WAS 20!!! I swear this is true!! Because of her diagnostic genius, the level of bioidentical hormones she has fine-tuned to my individual needs have changed my life and restored me to be the best “me” I can be! Dr. Schultz is not just a doctor, I call her my HEALER 🙂 She LISTENS to me, she educates me and encourages me to take good care of myself and to make good choices, and then she allows me to make my own decisions and choices, because she respects that I am an intelligent adult and the expert on my own 58-year-old body. She treats me as a peer and her PARTNER in maintaining my own wellness, and she respects and cares about me! Our appointments start and end with a hug, and I leave her office feeling uplifted, understood, inspired, strengthened and healed in body mind and spirit. She is very holistic,  understanding that we are not just a cluster of symptoms, but that in order to have healthy bodies we must also address our issues, belief systems, and thoughts. Dr. Schultz is a wise and wonderful teacher and I am blessed to have her on my path:) And her staff is awesome too!”
