Hormone Therapy

The human body changes over a lifetime. When hormonal changes happen, we ensure patients’ needs are met with customized hormone therapy solutions.

Hormones Explained

Hormones are chemical messengers produced by the body’s endocrine system that regulate virtually all biological functions, including:
[

Mood

[

Sleep

[

Metabolism

[

Reproductive function

[

Energy Level

[

And more

Hormones and Aging

As we age, the quantities of hormones produced and how organs respond to them change. Hormonal changes can lead to imbalances that significantly impact the quality of life.

Hormones and Environmental Factors

External and internal elements can affect how people respond to hormones. For example, the longer we expose ourselves to environmental toxins and substandard diets, the more susceptible we become to hormonal imbalance. Autoimmune conditions can also play a part in hormonal imbalance.

Hormonal Imbalance

Most people over 40 experience hormonal imbalance to some degree. These manifest differently for everyone, but some of the most common problems include:

  • Lowered energy levels, exhaustion and even chronic fatigue
  • Mood swings
  • Memory problems
  • Lowered sex drive
  • Weight gain
  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Dry skin
  • Thinning hair

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

BHRT uses manufactured hormones chemically identical to those our bodies make. BHRT serves to restore natural hormone levels and lessen the negative effects of hormonal imbalance.

BHRT Demands Expertise

BHRT requires a highly-trained physician. Because every patient’s biological needs are unique, it is essential to use an expert to test, evaluate, and address hormonal needs.

Treatment

We believe that BHRT should be administered alongside a treatment plan that prioritizes a patient’s health journey, including:

  • A nutritious diet
  • An active lifestyle
  • Adequate sleep
  • A doctor-approved medication or supplement regimen
  • Ongoing consultations
