Atlanta’s Leading Hormone Replacement Therapy Provider
As the leading provider in Atlanta for functional medicine services, Elite Personalized Medicine provides bioidentical hormone replacement therapy from our medical center in Peachtree Corners. As we age, our hormone levels naturally drop or become imbalanced. The impact of this change can make significant changes to our health and well-being, with fatigue, weight gain, low libido, insomnia and many other symptoms. Thankfully, through the use of bioidentical hormones, it is possible to create balanced moods, increased energy and better sexual function.
Safe and Reliable Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a natural alternative to conventional hormone therapy. The treatment uses plant-derived compounds that have the same chemical and molecular structure as the hormones produced by the body. When a person is experiencing some of the common signs of aging, we conduct tests to determine the cause of the hormone imbalance. With this information, patients can take the required hormones in the form of creams, patches, pills or pellets.
Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women
Estrogen levels fall significantly during menopause, leading to symptoms like hot flashes, headaches, loss of sex drive, fatigue and weight gain. Many women believe these uncomfortable symptoms are an inevitable part of the aging process, but duplicating the lost hormones can restore balance and considerably improve health and comfort. At Elite Personalized Medicine we identify the hormone imbalance, whether caused by menopause, perimenopause or another condition. Our practitioners can then create a personalized treatment plan. Other services that we offer – such as health coaching and our weight loss programs – can help reverse some of the complications that have surfaced due to the hormone imbalance.
Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men
Men also undergo a hormonal change as years pass. This often starts in their 40s and accelerates over the years. The process is called andropause, and is characterized by lowered testosterone production. While less clearly symptomatic than menopause, a reduction in testosterone gradually leads to reduced strength, hair loss, a lower libido, anxiety and weight gain. For men, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can counteract an imbalance and provide improved well-being. By using hormone replacement therapy in conjunction with our IV therapies, you can help ensure your body is getting the nutrients it needs.
Common Questions About Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormones are responsible for many functions in the body, including growth, sexual function, reproduction, metabolism, mood, cognitive functions and controlling hunger.
Hormonal imbalances can be caused by a wide variety of factors. Some of these factors are part of aging – such as puberty, menopause and andropause – or diseases like ovarian cancer, diabetes and low levels of cortisol. However, additional factors including toxins, pollutants, poor nutrition, obesity and stress can also be responsible.
Our doctors evaluate patients using comprehensive lab testing and a detailed questionnaire. After identifying the hormone imbalance, a personalized treatment plan is created. This plan could involve using bioidentical hormones, which can also be compounded if your assessment identifies the need.
