Customized Hormone Restoration Therapy

Many people suffer from a hormone imbalance. Customized hormone replacement therapy may be an option for those who are experiencing symptoms relating to menopause or andropause. Restoring balance to hormone levels under the direction of your physician can help relieve the symptoms and improve your quality of life.

Our four-step approach to hormone restoration therapy:

  1. We work in close and continuous collaboration with the physician and the patient to assess the appropriateness, risks, and benefits of therapy.
  2. “Start low and go slow” – We believe that the lowest dose appropriate should be used when restoring human hormone levels.
  3. We recommend that any hormone restoration therapy be accompanied by an appropriate exercise regimen and a healthy diet.
  4. Regular physical assessments and evaluation of symptoms, along with measuring of the hormone levels are important for appropriate hormone supplementation.
