Hormone Therapy

At Better Way Wellness, we understand that hormonal imbalances can be a major source of discomfort and frustration for both men and women. In the United States alone, around 80 percent of women suffer from some type of hormonal imbalance, while about 39 percent of men aged 45 and older have low testosterone levels. These imbalances can lead to a wide range of symptoms, including weight gain, low energy, mood swings, and sexual dysfunction. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has proven to be an effective method for addressing hormonal imbalances. Our team of experienced healthcare professionals can help you recognize the symptoms of hormonal imbalances and develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs and goals. With our natural and effective hormone therapy options, we can help you achieve optimal hormonal balance and improve your overall health and wellbeing.

What is Hormone Therapy?

Hormone therapy involves providing the body with the hormones it may be lacking due to a hormonal imbalance. Hormonal imbalances can lead to negative effects on your health, which is why it is important to address them. At Better Way Wellness, we offer a variety of natural and effective hormone replacement therapy options to help correct hormonal imbalances.

It is important to choose the right form of hormone replacement therapy and delivery method based on your individual needs and hormone deficiencies. Our experienced healthcare professionals can help you determine the best treatment option for your unique situation.

Recognizing the symptoms of hormonal imbalances is also crucial. Symptoms may include weight gain, low energy, mood swings, and sexual dysfunction. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to schedule a consultation with one of our healthcare professionals to determine if hormone therapy is right for you. With our personalized approach, we can help you achieve optimal hormonal balance and improve your overall health and wellbeing.

Why Hormone Therapy?

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, you may have a hormonal imbalance. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can help to relieve the symptoms of hormonal imbalances in both men and women.
At Better Way Wellness, we offer a variety of hormone therapy options to help you feel like yourself again. Our treatments can address stubborn weight gain, issues with aging, mood swings, loss of libido, deterioration of sexual organs, and sexual performance issues.
One of our most popular treatments is natural, testosterone pellet therapy (TRT). This form of hormone therapy is preferred by many patients due to its convenience and the fact that it most closely mimics the pathways of endogenous hormones. Pellet therapy reduces or eliminates unwanted risks and side effects that are commonly associated with other forms of hormone therapy.
In addition to TRT, we also offer hormone optimization therapy (HRT), which can rejuvenate your physical health. Our hormone therapies are tailored to each individual patient, so you can rest assured that you are getting the best possible treatment.
Don’t let hormonal imbalances hold you back any longer. Contact Better Way Wellness today to schedule a consultation and learn more about how we can help you achieve optimal health and vitality.

Hormonal imbalances can have a significant impact on women’s health and well-being. Women may experience a range of symptoms related to hormonal imbalances, which can affect them physically and emotionally. These symptoms may include:

  • Hot flashes: sudden sensations of warmth, often accompanied by sweating and reddening of the skin.
  • Night sweats: excessive sweating during the night, which can disrupt sleep and lead to feelings of fatigue and tiredness.
  • Hair loss: thinning of hair or hair loss can be a sign of hormonal imbalances.
  • Vaginal dryness: a lack of natural lubrication can cause discomfort, itching, or pain during sex.
  • Anxiety: excessive worry or fear, which can lead to nervousness, restlessness, and difficulty concentrating.

They can help determine the underlying cause of your symptoms and recommend appropriate treatment options, which may include hormone therapy.

Causes of Hormone Imbalance

Hormone Therapy is a treatment that helps people with hormonal imbalances by providing the body with the hormones it needs. Hormonal imbalances can occur due to various reasons like genetics, health problems such as thyroid dysfunction or issues with the brain. As we age, hormonal imbalances become a natural part of life. Recognizing the symptoms of hormonal imbalances is the first step in determining if you need Hormone Therapy.

Long Term Health Risks of Hormone Imbalance

If left untreated, hormonal imbalances can lead to several long-term health risks. Men who have low testosterone levels may experience weak bones and muscles, along with substantial weight gain. Women with hormonal imbalances may suffer from acne, mood swings, depression, and abnormal hair growth. Furthermore, some women may be at higher risk of developing uterine or other cancers related to feminine organs such as the ovaries or vagina. Both men and women with hormonal imbalances may also face the risk of infertility.

How Is Hormonal Imbalance Diagnosed?

Your healthcare provider can diagnose hormonal imbalances by evaluating your medical history, symptoms, and laboratory results. They may order blood tests to measure hormone levels and identify any imbalances. In some cases, the symptoms may be obvious, such as excess fat distribution in a feminine pattern or unusual hair growth or balding in women, which may indicate a hormonal imbalance. Your provider will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan based on your specific needs and hormonal imbalances.
