HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY

Customized Hormone Program

Hormones are powerful regulatory molecules in the body- effecting strong mood changes, weight gain and many important health functions such as bone loss, immune function and heart health. Women and men seek our help to deal with menopause and andropause related symptoms (fatigue, low sex drive, compromised immune system, rapid aging, etc.). Bio-identical hormone supplementation is considered a cornerstone of anti-aging, or as we say here, “Ulti-aging”. When you sign up for our year-long  hormone management program we will test your hormone levels, balance your hormones if indicated, monitor your hormone levels and well-being, and educate you as to what is going on for you and what your options are. We use natural substances, dietary changes and when warranted bio-identical hormones derived from plant sources to balance hormones.  Throughout the year you will have an appointment every 3 months with me as well as phone and e-mail support at any time in -between.

New patients- Bring your packet of forms our office will have provided to you to your first appointment. Your initial appointment will consist of reviewing symptoms, medical history, family history and goals.

At this appointment you will be given a hormone test which you will be taught to use at home. It takes approximately 2 weeks for lab results to return to our office. You will be notified when your labs are ready and your consultation appointment will be scheduled.

Consultation – we will go over your lab results and provide you with recommendations. For example, it might be appropriate for you to supplement with some bio-identical hormones, or it may be appropriate for you to use herbal and/or nutritional supplements to metabolize your hormone levels more effectively, or both and more. Whatever way forward is best for you, you will need to re-test your hormones 12 weeks after beginning your new protocol. This is your “report card” and enables us to adjust your daily program and customize it just for you.

During these 12 weeks, I will be available to you via phone and e-mail to answer questions. You can also call Ultiskin at any time to set up an in person or phone call appointment. Throughout the year in-between every 3-month appointment I will be available to you for questions and support.

Your next appointments will be at the 6 and 9 month marks. At any time during this process, you may be required to test your hormones if you are having symptoms of imbalance. On average, you will tested twice annually within a 3 month period. Most patients will be tested for the Female hormone and thyroid panel. A smaller group may be screened and given more extensive testing such as full day cortisol or a different steroid hormone panel.

If hormones are recommended, we will prescribe them from our pre-approved compounding pharmacy.
