We’re Treating Energy Levels At The Source
As anyone of us might know, our energy levels can fluctuate from day to day. Some days we’re ready to climb Everest, other days we’re dragging our feet into the office. So how do we get to a place of consistent energy levels in our daily lives? And how can we treat low energy levels at their source?
The team at Dr. Amy Brenner, MD & Associates is devoted to helping our clients lead active and healthy lives with consistent energy levels that sustain them through daily activities and rigorous exercise. Our patients deserve to be and feel their best, and this is what we work toward as healthcare providers.
There’s A Lot That Can Affect Your Energy Levels
A number of factors play into your energy levels, and it’s a helpful roadmap for us as healthcare providers to explore what might be affecting our patients’ energy levels. Let’s explore some of those factors below.
Quality of Sleep
How you sleep is incredibly important and can actually affect a number of your biological processes. A lack of good sleep, especially on a long-term basis, can play into hormonal imbalances and overall stress. This is important to note because if your stress levels are high, this can then lead to additional health concerns.
Your adrenal glands are responsible for the cortisol hormone which is released the more stressed we become. The harder your adrenal glands have to work, the more cortisol imbalance is produced.
The most commonly known sex hormone, estrogen, is a big player in our biology. Estrogen aids in different bodily functions, including cardiac, brain, vascular, and urinary health. Another hormone is testosterone, which both men and women rely on for optimal energy levels.
A sedentary lifestyle, if left unchecked, can have a significant impact on your body’s response to illness and stress.
Your thyroid is crucial for maintaining your metabolic rate. An over-active thyroid (Grave’s Disease) or under-active thyroid (Hashimoto’s Disease) can affect your weight, heart rate, energy levels, and more.
Diet and Hydration
What you eat and drink really matters. Especially for sustaining energy throughout the day. When it comes to hydration, drinking plenty of water does more than satisfy our health checklist. It’s the main component of our blood, and it helps to carry nutrients to our cells. A sure sign of being dehydrated is fatigue.
Get Your Energy Back With Amy Brenner, MD & Associates
Before any treatment, we always meet with you for an in-depth consultation to discuss the effectiveness of our best treatments for low energy. You’ll meet with one of our team’s providers to discuss your symptoms, goals with treatments, and other relevant background information, such as your medical history.
If necessary, your provider may recommend blood testing to get to the root cause of a symptom. After learning all about you and your desired results, we’ll design a customized treatment plan tailored to you. We never take a one-size-fits-all approach, and this is especially important when it comes to your body’s energy production.
Combining treatments can be the answer to getting your energy back. Depending on your goals, sometimes other treatments may be needed to optimize overall energy levels.
Some energy-focused treatments can have immediate results for patients, while others require time and/or multiple treatments for full results. Regardless of your treatment plan, we’ll be with you every step of the way to monitor your progress and to ensure the best outcomes possible.
Best treatments for low energy
Our providers can tailor a treatment plan that will bring more energy back into your daily life.
The thyroid is responsible for taking certain nutrients that are consumed from the food we eat converting it into thyroid hormones. These hormones are important in how your body uses energy, body temperature regulation, and more. Every cell in the body depends on thyroid hormones for regulating their metabolism. With proper thyroid management, fatigue levels can be reduced (and this means more energy for everyday life!).
Stress is an inevitable part of life, but when stress becomes routine, it can take a toll on our overall health. Untreated stress puts our bodies in a constant state of attack readiness, and this can significantly decrease our energy levels over time. But stress is treatable, and with the right system in place we can manage your stress and get your body back to a state of wellbeing.
Insulin resistance is a condition in which a person’s cells have a lowered response to insulin, which is a hormone that is made by the pancreas and helps the body use glucose for energy. In an attempt to keep blood sugars low, the pancreas releases more insulin. Producing too much insulin can have an affect on our energy levels and it’s important that we investigate your body’s response to it.
Most of us have a sense of what we should be doing to improve our health, unfortunately we just don’t do it! But we don’t have to feel stuck in this cycle, and you don’t have to wait until the New Year to get back on track. Our providers can set you on the right path to get your health under control and have you looking and feeling your best!
IV Therapy (Intravenous Therapy) can go beyond addressing vitamin deficiencies to help optimize your wellness through convenient drip therapy. IV Drips can help assist with multiple causes of low energy including dehydration and stress. Our providers will help customize your IV treatment plan to meet your individual needs.
Bio-identical Hormone Therapy →
Our Cincinnati practice offers a comprehensive hormone treatments to address fatigue for qualified candidates.
Hormone imbalance can be the root cause for many symptoms that affect your energy levels. Hormone optimization (or, hormone therapy) can help with many of the symptoms of hormonal decline but also can reduce, or even help reverse many diseases associated with aging.
Hormones & Energy
If left untreated, hormone imbalance can also affect our sleep, stress, weight management, menstruation cycles, and even our immune system. Our bodies produce over 50 different kinds of hormones and if we have too much or too little of them, these important bodily functions such as energy can be limited as a result.
For Men and Women
We offer estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone hormone treatments for women using structurally and chemically identical (bio-identical) hormones. For men, we offer testosterone therapy with bio-identical hormones to remediate testosterone deficiencies and improve symptoms of low testosterone.
Combining energy-focused treatments can help you get the most out of your hormone therapy. Depending on your goals, sometimes other treatments may be needed to improve your overall quality of life.
When you pair bio-identical hormones with other treatments in our practice, you may get results that last longer or occur more quickly than stand-alone treatments. After you schedule your consultation, we’ll work with you to figure out the best path forward.
