What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
As an extremely crucial part of preserving your overall well-being and your mood, hormones can cause changes to several of the body's processes when they become unbalanced. Although hormonal imbalance can occur in both men and women, it is often more likely to occur in women who are going through hormonal changes, such as menopause. The symptoms of hormonal balance between men and women also vary. In most cases, women with imbalanced hormones may experience hot flashes, mood changes, and vaginal dryness; however, men usually experience erectile dysfunction (ED). Thankfully, our team at Gard Wellness Solutions provides innovative hormone replacement therapy treatments in order to help you find hormonal balance. Contact us today in West Palm Beach, FL, to learn more and schedule your initial consultation.
How Does Hormone Replacement Therapy Work?
Within your initial consultation at our facility, our team will carefully listen to your questions and concerns prior to administering a few tests as a way to measure your current hormone levels. Once the tests have been completed, we can better identify if you are currently dealing with hormonal imbalance. If you are, we will use these results to curate a personalized procedure plan to help alleviate your symptoms and restore your optimal hormone levels. Your treatment plan may involve oral medication, skin patches, or pellets in order to infuse your body with the necessary hormones. Additionally, you will need to schedule regular follow-up appointments so we can evaluate your progress and make adjustments as needed.
