TREATMENTS FOR WOMEN

Hormone replacement therapy has been in practice since the 1950s, yet millions of women still suffer from uncomfortable, disabling symptoms associated with the hormonal imbalances associated with thyroid deficiencies, pre-menopause, menopause, and post menopause. Lack of sex drive, depression, anxiety, fatigue, hot flashes, poor sleep, and a negative outlook on life are symptoms that can be mitigated through hormone replacement therapy. The major hormones that typically need replacement for women who suffer these symptoms are estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, testosterone, and sometimes human growth hormone (HGH).

SYMPTOMS

Women with hormonal imbalances typically suffer from one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Weight gain
  • Loss of sex drive or interest
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Mood swings
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Irritability
  • Depression
Thrive Approach
Testosterone

TESTOSTERONE

Just like men, women can benefit greatly from the positive effects of testosterone supplementation. In women, testosterone helps to increase bone density and formation, increase sex drive and weight loss, reduce fatigue, and help modulate cholesterol.

After a thorough analysis of your individual needs and clinical testing demonstrating sub-optimal hormone levels, our physician will prescribe a customized compound of estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, and/or testosterone to return your hormone levels to their optimal range. In as little as three to six weeks, you’ll begin to experience increased stamina, energy, sex drive, weight loss, and general zest for life.

DHEA

DHEA has positive effects on the immune system, libido, metabolism, and emotional stability. DHEA is a powerful antioxidant, and its effect on the distribution of stress hormones underlies its importance as an age-resisting hormone. DHEA can also help improve cognitive function and protect against heart disease.

ESTROGEN AND PROGESTERONE

Estrogen is essential for muscle tone, skin smoothness, hair texture, and sex drive. Estrogen may also help prevent osteoporosis and heart disease. Bio-identical progesterone is the chemical partner of estrogen, and helps stimulate bone growth, and healthy heart function, and helps to boost mood and
well-being. Estrogen and progesterone help balance each other and work together to promote optimal female health.

HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE (HGH)

Even after we stop growing, adults still need growth hormone. Human growth hormone (HGH) is a protein made by the pituitary gland and released into the blood. Growth hormone plays a critical role in healthy muscle, how our bodies store fat (especially around the stomach area), the ratio of high density to low density lipoproteins in our cholesterol levels, and bone density. In addition, growth hormone is needed for normal brain function.

However, after the age of 27, HGH in women can decline by 50% every seven years. Women with low HGH levels typically suffer from one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Higher levels of body fat
  • Fatigue
  • Decreased sexual function
  • Poor sleep (night sweats, tossing and turning)
  • Less strength, stamina, and ability to exercise without resting
  • Reduced bone density
  • Changes in the makeup of blood cholesterol
HGH

After a thorough analysis of your individual needs and clinical testing, our physician will prescribe a customized compound of Sermorelin – a bio-identical hormone that stimulates the secretion of Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) from the hypothalamus. In as little as two to three weeks, you’ll begin to experience lower levels of body fat, better sleep, increased energy, sex drive, and sexual performance, and an overall sense of well-being.
