Hormones serve as your body’s messaging system. Produced by your endocrine glands, hormones travel in your blood to various organs and tissues and tell them what to do.
Your hormones play a vital role in many of your body functions, including:
Though hormones work in small numbers, any slight change in blood hormone levels may affect normal body functions, causing a range of uncomfortable symptoms.
Hormone therapy is a medical treatment for low blood hormone levels. The goal of hormone therapy is to restore hormone balance, alleviate symptoms, and improve overall health and well-being.
At ReNew Wellness and East Valley Serenity Health, the team determines who may benefit from hormone therapy after a comprehensive physical exam. The full-service practice offers wellness labs that evaluate blood hormone levels, including:
The team performs wellness lab testing at the office. If the labs show your hormone levels are low, they may recommend hormone therapy.
The wellness labs also check genetic mutations that may affect how your body metabolizes hormones, which may help explain what’s going on.
You should schedule a hormone therapy consultation if you’re experiencing symptoms that may indicate low hormone levels, such as fatigue, low sex drive, depression, or unexplained weight gain. The team can find the underlying cause of your symptoms and provide the right treatment.
East Valley Serenity Health gives hormone therapy as an oral supplement. The team provides formulas for men and women that have the specific hormones they need to improve their levels.
You should notice improvements in your symptoms soon after starting your hormone therapy. The team schedules regular follow-up appointments to reevaluate your blood hormone levels and symptoms and adjust your treatment as needed.
East Valley Serenity Health takes a holistic approach to care and may also suggest nutritional supplements or intravenous (IV) therapy to support your body’s natural hormone production.
