Our hormones influence moods, weight, sleep, skin, and risk for cancer. Both men and women experience uncomfortable symptoms as we reach the change of life. Common symptoms include insomnia, anxiety, weight gain, hair loss and brain fog.
Our therapies focus on balance and metabolism of hormones. Even if the patient does not need hormones, there may be an issue with how they are metabolizing their hormones which leads to symptoms of imbalance.
We use a specialty lab for patients whose hormones are fluctuating due to perimenopause. This extensive report goes over the 3 metabolits of estrogen, the two testosterone metabolites and the two progesterone metabolites. It also looks at how someone is metabolising testosterone and estrogen. This is important when the patient has facial hair growth or hair loss, a history of cervical or breast cancer, acne, PMS, etc. A patient may need liver support and microbiome support in clearing hormonal metabolites.
We prescribe bio-identical homrones including estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. The forms come in cream, sublingual, oral and injectable. Nutritional support in the metabolism of hormones is included with all of our patients.
In addition to hormones, we also prescribe injectable Ipamorelin which is a popular anti-aging therapy that improves muscle tone, healing, and stamina.
