What Are the Benefits of Hormone Therapy?

Hormone therapy or hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment that can alleviate many different problems in both men and women. In the past, hormone therapy was a treatment that was widely associated with menopausal symptoms, but did you know that it’s been proven to treat everything from hot flashes to overall wellness and improved mood? For those who are trying to fight hormone deficiencies, Pure Gold Medical offers hormone pellet therapy, which improves sleep and increases bone density and muscle mass! It’s a quick procedure that is practically pain free.

How Do I Know if I Am a Candidate for Hormone Therapy?

It’s most important to always talk through your symptoms by scheduling a consultation with a trusted doctor, like Dr. Apodaca. In some instances, your doctor may recommend other treatments like lifestyle changes, antidepressants, anti-anxiety medication, or additional suggestions. With that said, your doctor may consider you a candidate for hormone therapy if you have a family history of osteoporosis or colon cancer, you have tried to relieve your symptoms with other treatments or strategies, or if you suffer from the following symptoms:

  • Headaches
  • Sleep problems
  • Painful intercourse
  • Early menopause before age 40

What Symptoms Can Hormone Therapy Help With?

Hormone therapy can help alleviate many symptoms, including:

  • Depression
  • Low sexual desire
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Hot flashes
  • Weight gain

Hormone therapy can actually work wonders on your self-esteem (improved mood) and aesthetic (healthier hair)! Over-processing your hair with treatments is a very common cause of hair loss and breakage in women. Even thyroid deficiency or excess can cause hair to become finer, resulting in a loss of body, wave, and shine. With testosterone therapy, the skin and scalp become healthier within weeks and new hair growth is noticeable within one month.

Additional Options to Combat Aging

Other options offered at Pure Gold Medical include Cortef® tablets if your body has a deficiency in hydrocortisone. The adrenal gland naturally produces hydrocortisone. Hydrocortisone combats arthritis, blood/hormone/immune system disorders, skin and eye conditions, breathing problems, cancer, and severe allergies. Additional services include testosterone pellets and the thyroid therapy. We take a holistic approach to understanding the root causes of your symptoms and can guide you through the appropriate steps to regain your confidence again.
