Hormone Replacement Therapy:
The Solution to Feeling Young Again
The tragedy of getting old, we all fear it and for good reasons, too. The fatigue, the low-sex drive, the onset of menopause and andropause, the insomnia, the body aches…should I continue? The list could go on and for those of you currently in this state, you feel as though we’re taking the words right out of your mouth!
There is no fun in getting old. It’s discouraging when your activities start to lack because of your age. The reason for this decline is due to your body’s lack of hormones. As we age, our bodies don’t produce nearly as many hormones as we did 30, 20, even 10 years ago. This inevitable decline is the cause of your body feeling old before you’re ready to! At 5th & Wellness, we believe age should have no influence over your beauty or health, that is why we provide the best aesthetic and wellness services to keep you feeling and looking young.
Our medically trained professionals are equipped with the knowledge and tools to provide you a solution to this lack of hormone production. We call this, Hormone Replacement Therapy, and the benefits are life-changing.
What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormone Therapy could be used for a variety of deficiencies. The most common and crucial hormones our therapy targets are testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, thyroid, and cortisol. After a patients’ labs are taken, our providers are able to diagnose and treat the hormone imbalances; when administered properly, there are little to no side-effects.
Balancing your hormones reaps many benefits, both physical and mental. It could help promote the health of your bones, teeth, brain, heart, eyes, skin, metabolism and more. When our bodies enter a state of menopause or andropause, receiving Hormone Replacement Therapy treatments regularly can help reduce the symptoms.
Our replacement therapy involves lab testing prior to any method of delivery. This is to ensure we are providing the proper dose to our patients, without boosting their hormones too quickly. It is important that the patient feels comfortable with these changes, that is why progressively raising your hormones until you are at a level you feel best, is critical to our process. Our providers will also provide their expert opinion on lifestyle changes that you could make to aid alongside the process of Hormone Replacement Therapy.
While Hormone Replacement Therapy is most commonly used in women struggling with severe symptoms of menopause, it serves as a great therapy for any individual suffering with the symtoms of hormonal imbalances.
