Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormones are signaling molecules that are produced in a variety of endocrine organs, which affect physiology and behavior throughout the body. At optimal levels, each hormone contributes to your body’s peak performance and metabolic function.

However, with aging, hormone production declines and corresponding physiologic changes become apparent. For example, when testosterone levels drop, both men and women will experience decreasing energy, declining mental clarity, a drop in libido and body composition favoring fat over muscle. Estrogen decline in women leads to weight gain, hot flashes, night sweats, dry skin, lower libido and cognitive impairment.

The approach to hormones at Lifespan is personalized for each patient. Dr. Rawson spends time with you to identify physical and mental changes, then, tests numerous hormones through blood, saliva and/or urine. If deficiencies are discovered, then recommendations for bioidentical hormone replacement are discussed. Bioidentical hormones, whose molecular structures are identical to your body’s naturally-produced hormones, ensure that you are supplementing with the safest, most effective hormones available.

If you are feeling sluggish and fatigued, or experiencing “brain fog,” weight gain and/or decreased libido, hormone deficiencies may be playing a role. Contact Lifespan Center for Integrative Medicine to get checked.
