What is hormone therapy used for?
Hormone therapy is used to help get your body back on track again. Offering a test to see if your hormones need help with replacement therapy to relieve symptoms like exhaustion, bloat, irritability, hair loss, poor skin texture, adult acne, and even headaches. These hormonal imbalances can also be caused by menopause. Implementing hormone therapy can help replace the hormones that are at a much lower level than normal. However, not only are women affected, but men as well can be affected by low hormone levels.
Just as women’s testosterone levels decrease with the cause of menopause, men can also see a decrease in their testosterone levels as they age. Hormone therapy does not replace anything that is naturally missing however.
How does hormone therapy work?
Hormone therapy can involve the use of manufactured hormones which helps the body to replace any estrogen or testosterone your body stopped making during menopause or as you age.
