Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) can balance hormone levels that become upset or deficient through lifestyle habits and aging. The decision to start hormone therapy can be a difficult decision. There continues to be more studies supporting the benefits of hormone therapy and the increased risks in not taking hormones throughout the years.
Feel Balanced Again With Hormone Replacement Therapy!
HRT replenishes the body to the healthy levels your body needs to function optimally. Forms of hormone replacement therapy include progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone. We use hormones that are identical to what your body made at one time.
Blood tests are taken to determine hormone levels. If there is a deficiency or imbalance, HRT is recommended to safely balance levels. Restoring hormone balance can provide protection from chronic diseases and alleviate menopausal symptoms. Saliva testing of hormone levels is also available if desired.
Benefits of HRT
Hormone replacement therapy supplementation can be used to relieve symptoms of:

Their use is not limited to the relief of menopausal symptoms. To evaluate your individual risks and concerns please contact the office.
