What many people are not aware of are the health problems that come with hormonal imbalances. In fact, when this happens, an individual can experience a myriad of problems including, but not limited to, chronic fatigue, lack of motivation, mood swings, decreased libido, hair loss, and increased weight gain.

Hormone imbalances occur in the human body when the endocrine glands can’t operate or function as intended. These glands are responsible for producing hormones and releasing them into one’s bloodstream. Naturally, there are different causes that lead to problems with the endocrine glands. Here are just a few occurrences that can lead to a hormone imbalance:
Perimenopause / Menopause / PostMenopause
Poor Diet and Nutrition
Cancers and Treatments
Toxins and Pollutants in the air.
Hormone Therapy truly depends on each individual patient. Depending on the specific test results, the medical staff at New You Medical Center will create a custom hormone therapy plan just for you. There is a wide assortment of ways for an individual to receive hormone therapy including, creams, medications, injectables, pellets, or even gels.
In hormone therapy, there are two different types of hormones that can be used: bioidentical hormones and synthetic hormones. Bioidentical hormones are created to match human hormones on a molecular level. Do note, these are not individually prepared for each patient, but rather created by an official compounding pharmacy. On the other hand, synthetic hormones are manufactured and currently being phased out in the industry due to their links to cancer and other complications.
Yes, hormone replacement therapy is safe for both men and women. There have been numerous studies citing evidence and documenting the true benefits of hormone therapy.
A common misperception of hormone therapy is that it can lead to an increased risk of breast cancer. This is not the case. In fact, when women undergo hormone replacement therapy for less than 10 years, there is no evidence of such risk. At New You Medical Center, our goal is to help you feel more youthful and back on track as quickly as possible. Hormone Therapy has proven to be an effective technique to balance one’s hormones, empowering them with a whole new level of vitality and livelihood.
