What Is Hormone Therapy?

Your hormones can get out of order for many reasons—age, genetics, and pregnancy are just a few. Hormone therapy is a medical treatment designed to remedy hormonal imbalances or deficiencies, so you can feel like yourself again. It is often called hormone optimization therapy because it replenishes low hormone levels.

Hormone therapy can improve your:

  • Metabolism
  • Immune system
  • Physique
  • Energy
  • Mood
  • Libido

How Does Hormone Therapy Boost Weight Loss?

We often recommend hormone therapy for people who don’t feel, look, or perform how they would like despite consistent nutrition and exercise. They often find that addressing their hormone levels resets their clock, helping them function like they have a younger body that is more capable and efficient.

Hormone therapy works very well to help our patients achieve the body they desire in a sustainable, long-term way. GLP-1 drugs work great, but they are designed to be used for short-term periods, and weight loss injections work even better when used in combination with hormone therapy.

Hormone Therapy Misconceptions

Most misconceptions about hormone therapy come from a lack of understanding that bioidentical hormones and synthetic hormones are different. At Balanced Flow, we offer bioidentical hormone optimization therapy. Bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to the ones you naturally produce. They provide tremendous benefits, and there are no significant negative effects shown in decades of research.

On the other hand, synthetic hormones increase your risk of heart disease and cancer. Some synthetic hormones do not provide satisfactory results, and so patients assume hormones do not work. When given bioidentical hormones at the right levels, our patients can see life-changing benefits.

Another misconception is that people think you need to take hormones forever; this is not true. Patients often decide to stay on hormone therapy because they notice how good they feel. If a patient stops hormone therapy, they will return to the condition they were seeking to improve in the first place.
