What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormones are very potent substances in our bodies that are essential to staying healthy and active.

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) refers to the use of one or more groups of medications to restore the body’s natural hormone levels.

HRT is a safe, effective method of treatment for both men and women.  A wide array of treatment options are currently available.  A consultation with one of our healthcare providers trained in HRT is essential to learn what choices are best for you.  Treatment is closely monitored by our healthcare professionals to ensure a safe and effective outcome.

HRT is not just for the treatment of female and male menopause.  Many younger individuals suffer from low hormonal levels which often impact their lifestyle and relationships.

Take the first step to a healthier, more satisfying lifestyle by learning what HRT has to offer.

Hormonal Imbalance Symptoms Include:

For Women:

  • Osteoporosis
  • Menstrual changes
  • Breast cancer
  • Menopausal symptoms
  • Infertility

 For Men:

  • Irritability
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Abdominal obesity

Anyone who has been through puberty knows that hormones have a powerful effect on one’s body. Hormones affect many areas of your health, including your mood, your metabolism, and your sexual and reproductive function. If your hormones become unbalanced, whether due to menopause or other factors, you may end up feeling like a stranger in your own skin. However, compounded hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a way to restore balance and help you feel like yourself again.

What Are My Treatment Options?

Personalized treatment options are best decided with your provider after a consultation and testing.  However, common HRT methods include:

Bio-identical Hormone Therapy – This is the use of plant-derived hormones that are the same chemical structure as the ones your body produces.  Bio-identical hormones tailor to the theory that “one size does not fit all,” which is not the approach with more conventional therapies.

Conventional Hormone Therapy – This approach uses synthetic and animal hormones to re-establish healthy hormone levels.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy – Various forms include topical preparations injections and hormone pellets.
