Hormone Replacement Therapy
Declining hormones can be a normal and natural part of life, but the unwanted issues and symptoms that come along with them are not. Many people are not even aware that their symptoms may be caused by a hormone deficiency, and either choose to live with their symptoms or seek alternative treatment options.
What is Hormone Therapy?
In order for your body to operate at its maximum potential, it is vital to have sufficient levels of certain hormones. As we age, our hormone levels decrease, and can result in varying negative symptoms. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy works to restore your body's hormone levels to their natural balance.
Bioidentical hormones are compounds that have the same chemical and molecular structure as hormones that are produced in the human body, which ensures that they are safe and effective. Depending on your symptoms, you may be prescribed estrogen, progesterone, thyroid, DHEA, cortisol or melatonin.
No matter your ailments are, we will work with you to create a customized treatment plan that will not only restore your body's health, but also improve your well-being, helping you feel better than you did in your 20s and 30s.
