hormone replacement therapy
As we age, our bodies experience shifts in hormone levels, including estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. Women go through menopause, and men experience andropause. In the past, doctors used a cookie-cutter approach when treating patients experiencing unpleasant mid-life symptoms. Today, we know that each patient’s needs will be different, and we can tailor treatment accordingly for the best balance.
“Hormone replacement should not be considered without a complete understanding of how all the body’s hormones interact with each other,” says Dr. Pam Smith, Director of Fellowship in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine for the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. “The hormonal response of an individual is as unique as their fingerprints.”
