FEMALE HORMONE THERAPY
SYMPTOMS IN WOMEN
INCREASED BELLY FAT
LOW SEX DRIVE
HORMONE REPLACEMENT FOR WOMEN: RELIEVE SYMPTOMS AND FEEL GREAT.
Fatigued? Experiencing hot flashes or night sweats? Having difficulty sleeping? If you’re of perimenopausal or menopausal age, there’s a good chance that these (and other) symptoms are due to hormonal imbalance or insufficiency.
Hormonal changes are a normal part of aging. It doesn’t mean they’re pleasant.
As women get older, they experience hormonal changes associated with menopause. Levels of specific hormones can drop, and the balance between hormones can change. These deficiencies and imbalances, while something that happens as part of a woman’s normal course of life, can lead to a variety of unpleasant symptoms. They include:
Hot flashes and night sweats
Loss of interest in sex
Female hormone imbalance and insufficiency can be treated and their symptoms greatly relieved with hormone replacement therapy.
VITALOGY HELPS YOU TAKE BACK YOUR COMFORT AND VITALITY WITH SPECIALIZED CARE.
At Vitalogy Health and Integrative Medicine, hormone replacement therapy is our focus. It’s what we do, which means we have developed a base of knowledge and experience, a record of success, and a number of key efficiencies that other providers can’t claim. In fact, we treat a number of women sent to us by their doctors, who recognize the need for more informed, nuanced care.
INDIVIDUALIZED ATTENTION BACKED BY A DETAILED UNDERSTANDING.
When it comes to hormones, “nuance” is the right word. And particularly so for women, whose treatment with hormone replacement therapy is not as straightforward as it tends to be for men. This is where Vitalogy’s experience and knowledge are important.
Every woman is unique, meaning one of a kind. At the same time, symptoms can be the result of low levels of a hormone, or two hormones, or three, or the result of imbalances. In addition, levels can be affected by the stress and toxins that we normally encounter as we live our lives. Our experienced, compassionate medical professionals evaluate and carefully consider all of the many factors involved, including:
Estrogen (estradiol) and progesterone levels
Testosterone levels (free and total)
Human growth hormone
COMPREHENSIVE TESTING AIMED TO GET YOU FEELING NOT JUST BETTER, BUT GREAT.
At Vitalogy, we run bloodwork and conduct a thorough evaluation and history, then take the care and time necessary to create a treatment plan that will work for you. One important consideration is the fact that “normal” hormone levels are not the same as optimal levels. Whereas many other providers are looking to bring hormone levels back to normal, our objective is to get you to where you’re feeling significantly better, like you remember.
TREATMENT DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR YOUR NEEDS AND BEST RESULTS.
In addition to striving to help you feel great, we strive to get you there quickly. Here are the treatment methods we may employ to achieve this for you:
Lifestyle modifications – Diet, sleep and other lifestyle factors are important to how you feel generally and to hormone levels and balance. Modifying them can make a significant difference.
Stress management – Stress is the enemy of good health, and it can affect hormone levels. We help you control it.
Nutritional supplements – Our bodies are biochemical mechanisms, and what we put into them plays a role in our hormone production and use. We may and often do recommend specific kinds of supplements based on your unique needs.
Compounded bioidentical hormones – We replace deficient hormones with bioidentical hormones compounded for you specifically. And we use creams and/or pellet therapy because they lead to better results.
CONTINUAL MONITORING AND ADJUSTMENT FOR MAXIMUM EFFICACY AND SAFETY.
Hormone replacement therapy is not one-size-fits-all care. Not even a little bit. We continually watch and adjust for changes in hormone levels and symptoms in order to ensure you’re always receiving the right dose for you. This is also how we’re able to minimize the risks associated with HRT. Not everyone does this, but we feel it’s vitally important.
