What is involved in hormone replacement therapy?
Hormones are chemical messengers that control bodily functions. Aging depletes the body's hormonal levels. We measure a person's level of hormones and prescribe balanced hormone replacement to restore hormone levels to where they were in the persons mid- 30s. In many cases, this can be done naturally through lifestyle or nutriceutical supplementation. If not, bioidentical hormone replacement is prescribed.
What kind of results should I expect from hormone replacement therapy?
In most cases, an increase in energy is the most noticed immediate result. Also, better sleep and more optimism are noted. Body composition changes in a few weeks of an age management program. Marked improvement is often seen at 4-6 months with a closely adhered to plan.
Are the treatments covered by insurance?
Insurers are geared more toward the treatment of disease than preventive medicine. So these consultations and treatments are usually not covered by insurance. However, some labs may be covered by insurance.
