Patients increasingly tell us about feeling drained, a sense of deadening exhaustion and constant weakness from morning till night.
These symptoms, known today as “burnout”, describe a condition of chronic fatigue.
The causes of this are varied. According to the level of pressure the individual’s body can take, the body is either overstressed by everyday demands over a long period of time or by extreme situations. Energy resources are used up and short breaks to recover are no longer enough to regain energy. Patients talk about a downward spiral arising from constant excessive demands and describe their feelings as being continually irritated, increasingly listless and disinterested, and generally feeling weak.
From a medical point of view, the adrenal gland is one of the most important organs when it comes to combatting stress. This organ is responsible for producing the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline. Chronic overloading of the adrenal glands diminishes their functionality, with the effect that coping with stress becomes even more difficult for the patient due to the fact that there is a lack of stress hormones. Over the course of time, this can lead to impairment of other endocrine glands and organs. The symptoms increase until the patient may suffer a breakdown in some cases.
Using Bioidentical Hormones to Deal with Burnout
Burnout does not happen overnight, and in the same way, dealing with it can only be achieved step by step.
To restore balance to endocrine glands and organs overburdened by permanent stress, we can provide our bodies with the substances they need in order to cope with it.
Hormones are essential for our entire organism – our general well-being, ability to take pressure and vitality are largely dependent on the functioning of our endocrine glands and organs.
As we age, the efficiency of our endocrine glands and organs declines to a certain degree. Tiring permanent stress and long-term overwork speed up this process.
Taking bioidentical hormones in combination with other strengthening substances fortifies the body from the inside and gives you new vitality and energy. After your “actual status” has been determined with a detailed anamnesis and laboratory tests, your hormonal deficiencies will be balanced out with bioidentical hormones and your body strengthened with fortifying substances. Your energy levels will be able to regenerate.
Bioidentical hormones have the same chemical structure as the hormones our bodies produce – bioidentical hormones are therefore “natural” and not foreign to the body, such as the contraceptive pill.
Depending on how serious burnout is and the way it developed, supportive psychotherapeutic measures may also be necessary.

According to your individual circumstances and the exact way the illness progressed, your body will gradually be able to take on more pressure, you will be better able to cope with everyday demands, daily tasks will no longer tire you out, and you will develop more strength and energy again.
Depending on the individual indication, a Hormonal Regeneration® cure with bioidentical hormones (BHRT) has a duration of multiple cycles (1 cycle = 28 days). The cure can be repeated several times, if required.
