What Does Hormone Therapy Do?
Hormone Replacement, Health and Wellness
As we age, our bodies slow the production of hormones that help us focus, maintain energy levels and keep us healthy and vibrant.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy works to restore the right balance of hormones in the body, which increases the body’s performance while reducing the signs of aging. If we can restore the levels of hormones in our bodies to a natural balance, we can recapture our youthful energy levels and see our bodies function in prime condition.

What Does Hormone Therapy Do?
When aging sets in, it feels like it takes an exorbitant amount of energy to do the same simple tasks. These symptoms appear as early as our 30s and only get worse from there.

What’s the Difference Between Bioidentical and Non-Bioidentical Hormones?
We only recommend and prescribe bioidentical hormones, we do not use synthetic hormones. Bioidentical means the hormone is the same molecular structure as the hormone that is naturally produced in the body. Because of this, we don’t see the side effects or risks typically associated with other forms of hormones.
Synthetic hormones such as Premarin and Provera, have been linked to significant health risks including blood clots, heart attacks and strokes. This was demonstrated in a very large study called The Women’s Health Initiative. For this reason, we do not prescribe synthetic hormones.
We believe in evidence based medicine and in patient education. We try to dispel the myths and confusion surrounding hormone replacement by educating our patients on why we do what we do.
We are happy to discuss the pros and cons of each recommendation, and empower patients to make informed decisions about their health and longevity.
Therapy for Men
One of the primary aims of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for men is usually centered on optimizing testosterone levels. Testosterone is an essential hormone in men to maintain muscle mass, energy, and vitality and reduce the risk of age-related diseases.
Hormone therapy can not only help you balance your hormone levels, but it can help to improve your sexual health and manage sleep issues.
If you've been looking into hormone replacement therapy near you, Revitalize aims to restore testosterone and all hormones and nutrients to achieve your best overall health.
