Hormone Therapies for Men and Women

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 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.

How Do I Get Tested?

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.
