What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
With age, nearly everyone’s hormone levels begin to fluctuate. Hormones like estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid, growth hormone, DHEA, and cortisol govern a person’s mood, physical health, energy levels, and a general sense of well-being. When the normal levels of these hormones change over time, people can experience significant, negative side effects. These side effects include:
Loss of energy
Trouble falling asleep or staying asleep
In addition to these downsides, women often experience from vaginal dryness, while men suffer from erectile dysfunction. Hormone replacement therapy supplements the loss of these hormones with safe, effective synthetic versions, bringing hormone levels back to their normal proportions and allowing patients to live healthier, happier lives. A hormone replacement package includes all of the laboratory testing, office visits, and hormones needed to complete therapy.
What are the Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy is a safe and effective way for patients to address the natural loss of hormones over time. By balancing out the levels of vital hormones, patients experience:
Improved energy levels
Increased sex drive
