Hormone Therapy

Revitalizing W/ natural Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

What exactly is hormone therapy? Can it truly alleviate the effects of menopause? Is hormone therapy beneficial for men as well? And when it comes to hormone therapy, what sets Bio-identical HRT apart from synthetic options?

Unraveling Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a medical treatment that involves the use of hormones, typically estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone for women, and testosterone for men. The goal of the treatment is to restore hormones that the body no longer produces in adequate amounts as we continue to age. The treatment is customized to each individual's needs and may involve once a year blood monitoring to ensure hormone levels are properly improved.

Embracing Bio-identical HRT

Bio-identical hormone therapy stands out as a natural form of HRT, as its molecular structure mirrors that of hormones naturally synthesized by the body. Derived from plant sources, this form of hormone replacement differs from synthetic alternatives, offering long-term safety validated by extensive research.

Navigating Menopause with Hormone Replacement Therapy

Certainly! Menopause marks a significant phase in a woman's life, signaling the end of menstruation and a decline in hormone production, particularly estrogen and progesterone. The symptoms stemming from hormonal imbalances during menopause can be effectively managed through hormone therapy, easing the transition and enhancing well-being.

Empowering Men through Hormone Therapy

Undoubtedly! While men do not experience menopausal symptoms, they can greatly benefit from HRT. Testosterone levels in males peak during their twenties and gradually decline each year, leading to issues like fatigue, reduced focus, diminished libido, and weight fluctuations. Prioritizing hormone balance in men is essential for optimizing bodily functions, fostering vitality, and mitigating age-related health concerns.

Frequently Asked

What is BHRT and how does it work?

BHRT, short for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, is a specialized form of medicine that aims to balance hormones and improve overall health as individuals age. Unlike synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones are derived from plants and are designed to closely resemble the hormones naturally produced by the body. This means that the body is unable to distinguish between bioidentical hormones and its own hormones. By correcting hormone levels, BHRT can alleviate symptoms without the potential risks associated with synthetic hormones.

How does BHRT treatment work?

The journey begins with a consultation, where your symptoms and concerns will be carefully evaluated. Tests will be conducted to determine if you are a suitable candidate for BHRT. Once eligibility is confirmed, a personalized treatment plan will be created, considering your specific needs. Regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your progress and address any questions or concerns you may have along the way.

How long does a PRP treatment take?

A typical PRP treatment takes around one to two hours to complete. The duration depends on whether the PRP is administered through injections only or if micro-needling is also involved.
