Hormone replacement therapy works to treat a wide variety of conditions associated with the aging process and can even serve as a preventive measure for conditions not yet present. In both men and women, BHRT serves to restore the body’s natural balance, increasing blood plasma levels of critical hormones. In doing so, BHRT allows for efficient communication between the endocrine system and the rest of the body, thereby reducing or eliminating bothersome symptoms.
When the hormones required to efficiently metabolize sugar become impaired, many people develop symptoms of Type II diabetes. The pancreas is responsible for normal synthesis of these critical hormones, and age or pancreatic damage can lead to diminished production. Many patients have experienced significant improvements in symptoms due to the pellet’s unique hormone delivery method.
Metabolic syndrome refers to a set of conditions that increase your risk of diabetes, stroke, and heart disease. One of the defining characteristics of metabolic syndrome is an abnormally large waist circumference, often due in part to hormonal imbalance. Researchers believe that one of the biggest culprits behind the development of metabolic syndrome—and unexplained weight gain in general—is unbalanced hormones. Our customized approach to hormone therapy can help resolve or prevent the symptoms of metabolic syndrome.
As the number one cause of death in the United States, heart disease is responsible for over half a million deaths each year. A decline in the hormone estrogen—which both men and women require—can increase your risk of developing this potentially fatal condition. Because estrogen exerts a protective effect on the heart, hormone therapy can help decrease or prevent symptoms associated with this debilitating condition.
Testosterone is essential for both men and women. While men may require higher levels of this critical hormone, it regulates certain processes in the female body, as well. Customized hormone therapy works to restore natural testosterone levels, leading to increased vitality, performance, and well-being.
As one of the main hormone production centers in both the male and female body, the thyroid controls an array of important bodily functions. Disruptions in your natural thyroid hormone production can lead to a variety of distressing symptoms, most of which are easily resolved by re-establishing normal levels of these critical hormones.
