You might notice only one of these symptoms, or be plagued by a combination of unpleasant symptoms. Fortunately, there are treatments that can restore proper hormonal balance.
Hormone replacement therapy, or HRT, is a treatment option for restoring proper hormone balance. It supplements your natural hormone levels to optimal levels. HRT is an incredibly individualized process; Dr. Goldblatt creates a customized plan to suit your specific needs, and that plan might be tailored over time as your hormone levels shift.
Shoreline Medical Spa uses bioidentical hormones, which are formulated from yams that share the same chemical makeup as human hormones. Many believe that bioidentical hormones are a more natural way to deliver hormone supplementation than synthetic versions, some of which are made from the urine of pregnant horses.
On the other hand, researchers findthat HRT can prevent bone loss and reduce the risk of fractures in women. Relieving troublesome symptoms can also improve your quality of life. Before you begin HRT, you’ll sit down with Dr. Goldblatt and discuss your specific needs.
