Hormone Replacement Therapy

hrtHow hormone replacement therapy can help you

Hormone replacement therapy, also known as HRT, is an important type of treatment to replenish hormone levels that are diminished from menopause and other conditions. Having adequate hormone levels is vital to feeling and looking healthy.

When you might need hormone replacement therapy

If you are a woman, when you are going through menopause, or if you are a man, suffering from low testosterone, your body goes through tremendous changes, including:

  • Hair thinning, or hair loss
  • Temperature regulation, including experiencing hot flashes and night sweats
  • Loss of collagen and elasticity, which can make your skin look older, cause sagging, and other changes
  • Metabolism fluctuations, which can cause you to gain weight
  • Loss of bone density, which can lead to osteoporosis and increasing the likelihood of broken bones
  • Sleep disturbances, which can make it difficult to get to sleep and stay asleep
  • Memory problems, resulting in a decreased performance at work, problems with focus, and other issues
  • Mood fluctuations, leading to an inability to deal with stress, emotional outbursts, and other changes
  • Lower sex drive, which can lead to relationship problems and loss of self-esteem and self-confidence

Testosterone therapy for men

When men have low testosterone, testosterone therapy can improve a man's quality of life drastically. We work with you to ensure all of your symptoms are addressed and include you in deciding on a treatment plan so you know your plan is tailored specifically for you. Replacing testosterone can have effects on:

  • Enhanced mood, confidence, cognition, and mental clarity
  • Increased energy levels and drive to "get up and go"
  • Increased muscle mass and tone as well as bone strength
  • Restored libido and vitality
  • Decrease in erectile dysfunction
  • Improved sleep
  • Improved exercise endurance
  • Protection against heart disease


Hormone replacement therapy for women

Women have their own issues when it comes to hormone imbalances and we work with each person to tailor their treatment plan specifically to treat any deficiencies found in blood work as well as address concerns related to specific symptoms. In women, the delicate balance of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone can be thrown off during menopause or as a result of stress or other medical conditions. Our clients can choose from a variety of hormone replacement methods, including creams, oral preparations, and hormone pellets. Replacing hormones that are deficient and getting the hormones back into an optimal balance can have effects on:

  • Improve or eliminate symptoms of menopause, including hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness & itching, and painful intercourse
  • Enhanced energy, mood, memory, and concentration
  • Improved sex drive and comfort during intercourse
  • Enhanced fat loss and muscle tone
  • Improved protection of bones from osteoporosis
  • Improved sleep
  • Reduction of risk of heart attack


What to expect at your hormone replacement therapy appointment

At Pulse Health & Wellness, we always check your hormone levels first to determine the level of hormone replacement therapy you need. Hormone replacement therapy is often combined with lifestyle counseling to increase your level of exercise, modify your diet, and incorporate stress management techniques into your life.

The benefits of bio-identical hormones

Using bio-identical hormones has become a state-of-the-art hormone replacement therapy because of their outstanding benefits and limited side effects. Bio-identical hormones have a structure that is identical to human hormones, giving them some important advantages, including:

  • Long-lasting relief, typically from three to five months
  • Safety, because they have been rigorously researched and tested
  • Individual dosing, so your amount of hormone replacement is perfect for you

Bio-identical hormones also provide a steady, consistent stream of hormones to your blood. They also don’t increase your risk of serious medical conditions like having a stroke or suffering a blood clot.
