Hormone Therapy in Traverse City, MI

Hormonal structures control many aspects of your general wellness, including your emotions and your sex drive. Hormonal imbalances might occur because of an underactive thyroid, stress, getting older, or giving birth. Hormonal balances commonly result in issues, like fatigue, low sex drive, restless sleep, and weight issues. At Old Mission Lifestyle Medicine, our healthcare team administers BHRT (bioidentical hormone replacement therapy) to optimize estrogen and progestogen in women and testosterone replacement therapy in men and some women. Balancing hormones will help you achieve improvements in your energy, sexual desire, and mental clarity. Contact our practice to plan a virtual consultation that will get you back to feeling like yourself again.

Following a consultation with our team, a hormone therapy plan or testosterone therapy plan will be customized for your needs. Treatment begins with a blood sample. Additional advanced testing may be ordered to check your present hormone levels so we can figure out the dosage and type of treatment you need. Your treatment will be adjusted, depending on the variant of hormone replacement therapy that is decided upon. BHRT is typically administered as either oral pills, minuscule pellets that are inserted into your outer layers of skin (pellet therapy), or injections. These hormones are structurally identical to the body's organic hormones.

Hormones are vital for the proper functioning of the body, and any imbalance often leads to symptoms related to their decreased levels.

Doc is amazing! It has been a very long time since I had a Doctor actually care about my health and set up a viable medical plan vs. just trying to remedy the current health issue.
