How Hormones Get Unbalanced
One of the persistent myths that patients of Sarah Rothman, N.D. believe is that only women experience hormonal changes as they age. While all women go through menopause, a large percentage of men also deal with symptoms brought on by the hormonal changes that come with aging. That is because a man’s testicles naturally produce less testosterone as he gets older. The decrease starts as early as age 30, with the most noticeable symptoms starting in the mid 40s to early 50s. Coincidentally, this is the same age range that women are typically bothered the most by symptoms of menopause.
While normal aging is the most common reason for hormonal imbalance, it is not the only one. Stress, an unhealthy diet, certain illnesses, inadequate sleep, and poor lifestyle choices are also contributing factors. If you suspect that unbalanced hormones are causing your symptoms, it is important to schedule an evaluation with Sarah Rothman, N.D. as soon as possible. The reason for the imbalance is not as important as determining the proper way to treat it.
Common Indications of Hormonal Imbalance
The first time patients visit Sarah Rothman, N.D. the most frequent thing they complain about is sluggishness. Getting through a normal day at work is enough of a struggle, never mind household chores, intimacy with their partner, or anything else that requires energy. Both genders struggle to lose stubborn body fat and may experience problems with mood swings and sleep disturbances. Men experience a greater incidence of erectile dysfunction while women deal with vaginal dryness and painful intercourse. Both men and women sum up their problems with hormonal imbalance well when they say that they just don’t feel like themselves.
How Bioidentical Hormones Can Help You Get Back to You
When women stop producing estrogen and men slow down their production of testosterone, it seems obvious that restoring the balance they once had can make them feel better. However, most mainstream doctors fail to see the connection. They are trained to diagnose and treat disease. Since hormone imbalance is not an illness, they are at a loss for what to do. Sarah Rothman, N.D. on the other hand, introduces hormones into your body that are identical in cell structure and purpose to what it previously manufactured on its own. Within one month of starting treatment, you may notice improvement in some or all of these areas:
- Balanced moods: You no longer experience feelings of hostility, anxiety, or depression that you can’t explain. Your emotions are on a much more even keel.
- Increased sex drive: Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy increases the libido of both genders to what it was before they started suffering the effects of hormone loss.
- More regular sleep patterns: Hormone imbalance affects the hypothalamus, the area of the brain that regulates sleep. Restoring that balance helps decrease insomnia and gets you back to a more predictable pattern of sleep.
- Fat loss and improved muscle mass: Low levels of estrogen makes it hard to lose body fat while low testosterone levels have a negative effect on muscle tone. Replacing these hormones helps to eliminate both problems.

Bioidentical Hormone Patient Success Stories
Before coming to see Dr. Sarah I felt like I had been going through menopause for the past eight years. I was having hot flashes almost every hour and would have to change my clothes which would become drenched in sweat at least 3 times every night. I was so emotional, I would cry during commercials on the television. For 8 years I had felt like I was in someone else’s body. Working with Dr. Sarah has changed my life. She is so compassionate and passionate about everything she does. She always takes the time to teach me what is going on in my body, and I feel empowered because I can actually understand what is going on with my hormones. She put me on Bioidentical Hormone Therapy along with some female balancing nutrients and herbs and I feel like I did ten years ago. I finally feel like me again. -D. H., San Mateo, California
