Hormone Therapy Q & A

What are hormones exactly?

Hormones are tiny chemicals made by your endocrine glands that travel through your blood to various tissues, organs, and body systems. Your hormones are vital to life and influence your mood, sex drive, and weight.


When balanced, your body runs like it should. However, any change in hormone levels can cause various symptoms that affect your physical and emotional well-being.


A hormone imbalance may involve any hormone. However, a decrease in sex hormone production is common as you age. This includes the female sex hormones estrogen and progesterone and the male sex hormone testosterone.


Changes in sex hormone levels cause many symptoms people dismiss as an unavoidable part of the aging process. 

What symptoms need hormone therapy?

Many people going through perimenopause (months and years leading up to menopause) and menopause (when you no longer menstruate) experience hot flashes that benefit from hormone therapy. But that’s not the only symptom that hormone therapy helps. 


Arbor Vitae Holistic Medical Center provides hormone therapy to:


  • Boost libido
  • Help with weight loss
  • Improve mood
  • Benefit sleep
  • Treat vaginal dryness or erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Reduce hair loss
  • Improve memory
  • Boost energy
  • Lift brain fog


The team at Arbor Vitae Holistic Medical Center uses bioidentical hormones for hormone therapy. Bioidentical hormones are plant-based hormones that have the same structure and function as the hormones naturally produced by your body. 


With bioidentical hormones, the holistic specialists at Arbor Vitae Holistic Medical Center customize your hormone therapy plan to match your personal needs. 

What happens during a hormone therapy evaluation?

Your hormone therapy evaluation includes a comprehensive health and lifestyle history, physical exam, and lab work. Arbor Vitae Holistic Medical Center has onsite lab testing for your convenience. 


Hormone therapy might not be right for everyone, but the experts at Arbor Vitae Holistic Medical Center carefully evaluate your medical and family history to make sure you’re a good candidate for the treatment.


The team then provides your customized hormone therapy prescription based on the information gathered during your evaluation. You follow up monthly with your provider, who monitors your symptoms and hormone levels and provides health coaching.
