Hormone Replacement Therapy – HRT
Hormones affect all aspects of the body from physical strength, blood pressure, cholesterol levels and sex drive to mood, memory, skin tone and stamina. The smallest change in hormone levels can have a major effect.
When your hormones are in balance, your body can function at an optimal level. While health problems can cause an imbalance, even aging will cause hormone levels to decline. Hormone replacement therapy, or HRT, can restore hormonal levels to optimal concentrations.

Bio-Identical Hormones are identical to the molecular formula of hormones created by your own body. They are derived from natural plant chemicals which are reported by European medical studies to be safer than synthetic variants. The use of bio-identical hormones can restore your hormone levels such as progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone to youthful level.
Menopause sees the onset of declining hormones that can negatively impact your day-to-day life, as well as your overall feelings of well-being. Menopausal women often feel “out of sync” as their levels of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone decrease.
Male Menopause is an age-related “change of life” experienced by men. Men can suffer changing hormone levels and lowered testosterone levels that can lead to mental and physical changes.
Testosterone is responsible for muscle mass, libido, and energy level in both men and women. Restoring testosterone to proper levels can lead to a more healthy sex drive, higher energy levels, increased muscle mass, and better mental focus.
Transgender Patients are recognized as having a gender identity that is in-congruent with their birth sex. In this case hormones have a large role to play in the quality of life for such individuals as they are responsible for the development of secondary sex characteristics which are commonly characterized as masculine or feminine. HRT can aid in reducing the further development of characteristics linked to male or female genetics and promote the development of characteristics associated with a persons gender identity.
