What is hormone therapy?

Hormone therapy is a treatment that replenishes your natural hormones with bioidentical hormones made from plants. These hormones are molecularly identical to the natural hormones your body once produced in abundance.

You have many hormones in your body that serve different functions. There are a few different kinds of hormone therapy, depending on the specific hormone or hormones diminishing in your body. You can receive hormone therapy for lower:

  • Thyroid hormone
  • Testosterone
  • Estrogen
  • Progesterone

The benefits of hormone therapy for those who need it are considerable. After an initial consultation at Healthy Living Visiting Physicians, Dr. Aliza, MD, NP administers your hormones with consideration to all the other processes in your body. She provides pharmaceutical-grade vitamin supplements and nutritional and gut health advice to improve the treatment.

Who can benefit from hormone therapy?

As you age, some of your hormones naturally diminish in your body. A lack of a specific hormone can have many health effects.

Women approaching menopause experience fluctuations and an eventual shortfall in the hormones estrogen and progesterone, the female sex hormones. Hormone therapy with estrogen and progesterone can treat symptoms of menopause, like hot flashes, mood swings, and vaginal dryness.

Men can also experience a decline in their sex hormone, testosterone. Low testosterone often comes with symptoms like erectile dysfunction and low libido. In addition to hormone therapy with testosterone, the P Shot® is available at Healthy Living Physicians. It’s an injection of revitalizing platelet-rich plasma (PRP) that improves sexual function.

How does hormone therapy work?

Healthy Living Visiting Physicians offers hormone therapy using bioidentical hormone pellets, which Dr. Aliza, MD, NP places under your skin. The pellet releases hormones at a steady rate over an extended period. This avoids fluctuations that can cause flare-ups of symptoms, which can happen with other ways of taking hormones like pills or injections.

Dr. Aliza, MD, NP puts you on the lowest possible dose of hormones that will provide the benefits you need. She also monitors you closely throughout hormone therapy for your safety.
