Optimization & Therapy
Optimization & Therapy
Well-balanced hormones are important for not just women.
But for men, too.
One size does not fit all when it comes to hormone optimization or replacement. With each person, there are varying dosages, routes of administrations, and the duration of treatment should be considered.
We commonly administer the following treatments, but in no way is this an exhaustive list:
Your thyroid is a small, but incredibly important gland located at the base of your neck, controlling how quickly your body uses energy, plays a role in immune function, and affects protein and neurotransmitter production. Whether you're experiencing symptoms of Hashimoto's disease or hypothyroidism, by getting treatment early on, you're more likely to prevent thyroid damage and reduce medications in the long term.
Bioidentical hormone replacement
No matter your goals, we can customize your hormone dosing based on your health history, serum hormone levels, and risk prevention so you get relief from your symptoms associated with menopause/perimenopause, andropause (low testosterone), hypothyroidism, adrenal dysfunction, osteoporosis, and/or weight gain.
The hormones we use are obtained from natural plants to substitute the naturally occurring ones in the body, which is much safer than synthetic progestin. They can also help in preventing conditions such as osteoporosis, cognitive loss, and vaginal atrophy.
Men will have a predictable decline in the male sex hormone, testosterone, leading to decreased energy, weight gain, loss of muscle mass, and decreased sex drive or erectile function. They will also have an increased risk for heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, and dementia. Luckily, there is something that can be done about it! Men can supplement their hormones, just like women. The best routes for testosterone replacement are injectable and occasionally topical.
Improved mood, energy, sleep, sex drive, and muscle recovery time will usually start in a few weeks of testosterone replacement. It may take a few months to fully appreciate the improved stamina, muscle building, fat burning, and erectile function effects of testosterone.
Hormone Balancing - PCOS
Hormonal health is right up there with diet and exercise when it comes to overall health. Hormone balancing can be used to ready women for pregnancy to optimize fertility, control menstrual cycle irregularities, and assess symptoms associated with menopause. If you are experiencing any of the signs and symptoms mentioned above, there is safe and effective treatment available.
