Hormone Replacement Therapy

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a type of medication therapy used to balance hormones during middle age and menopause. As hormones naturally decrease over time, you begin to experience symptoms like:

  • Insomnia
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Weight gain, especially in the abdomen
  • Loss of lean muscle mass
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Decreased sex drive

While women experience these changes during perimenopause and menopause, men can also suffer from hormonal imbalance due to low testosterone. Without proper hormone levels, these symptoms can flare up and fluctuate, causing a roller coaster effect of days with symptoms and days when you feel more normal. To balance hormones, the team uses HRT to reduce the roller coaster of symptoms and improve your well-being.

How does hormone replacement therapy work?

HRT can include pills, patches, injections, and tiny implants under the skin to regulate hormones. The team works with you — first testing your blood and saliva — to determine your hormone levels. Based on your testing, the team then recommends an appropriate form of HRT to help with your symptoms and balance your hormones.

HRT comes in specific dosages based on the level of your hormones before beginning therapy. HRT “fills in the gaps” to level your hormones and decrease the intensity and frequency of your symptoms. Over time, your dosage may be modified to give you the best health experience without the need for high dosages.

The team also offers peptide supplements that can be used in conjunction with HRT to improve your body composition. Peptides are responsible for fat loss and muscle growth and provide the amino acid building blocks necessary for cellular growth.

Peptides stimulate your body to produce growth hormone, which increases lean muscle mass and reduces excess body fat. If you’ve gained weight due to menopause or low testosterone, peptides may be able to help. The team can answer your questions and recommend an appropriate peptide supplement for you if desired.

What are the benefits of hormone replacement therapy?

With HRT, you can enjoy balanced hormones and their effects, including:

  • Increased energy
  • Improved libido
  • Better sleep
  • Fat loss
  • Lean muscle maintenance and growth
  • Better mood

Discuss your symptoms with the team and ask about hormone testing options to determine if you’re a candidate for HRT.
