One of the many powerful tools of integrative medicine is hormone replacement therapy (HRT) or hormone therapy. It’s a proven treatment for hormone imbalances such experienced by women and men.
What Is a Hormone Imbalance?
Hormones are your body’s chemical messengers. Your blood carries hormones to your organs and tissues to help control things like growth, metabolism, sexual function, reproduction, and even mood. As we age, our hormone production often shifts.
About 80 percent of patients with a hormone imbalance are women and 20 percent are men. Women may notice hormone imbalance symptoms starting in their late 30s or 40s. For men, the symptoms may appear in their late 40s or early 50s.
Your health care clinician or an integrative medicine professional can diagnose hormone imbalances you may have with a simple saliva or blood test.
If you have a hormone imbalance, your clinician will determine if there’s an underlying issue such as a thyroid issue. If there isn’t an underlying issue, your clinician may suggest a proven treatment for a hormone imbalance.
What Are the Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy can also resolve low testosterone and grown hormone in both women and men. For women, testosterone plays a role in producing new blood cells, reproduction, and libido. Women and men who receive treatment for low testosterone often say they feel more energetic.
