HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
Hormones are responsible for most basic bodily functions, including appetite, immune function, mood, and libido. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is used to treat men and women when their hormone levels drop or become unbalanced. These hormones are manmade and derived from plant estrogens that are chemically identical to those the human body produces—like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Hormones come in various forms including pills, patches, creams, gels, pellets, and injections.
When an individual’s hormone levels are low, they may experience hot flashes, night sweats, loss of energy, fatigue, weight gain, brain fog, moodiness, memory loss, problems sleeping, and decrease in sex drive. Hormone replacement therapy helps you to manage hormone regularity that the body is having difficulty managing itself.
