Hormone Replacement Therapy
Understanding the science behind the aging process
It is a well known fact that hormone levels decrease as we age. A tiny change in hormone levels can lead to major problems.
Hormones are messengers that travel throughout the bloodstream, transmitting messages from cells to glands concerning development, growth, and energy. When your hormones are in balance, your body can function at an optimal level. However, aging cause hormone levels to decline. Hormone replacement therapy, or HRT, can restore hormonal levels to optimal concentrations.
HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY ADVANTAGES
Some of the advantages of HRT include:
– Achieving a leaner, strong physique
– Increased energy levels
– Stabilize blood pressure
– Increase bone strength
– Normal cholesterol levels
– Boost memory
– Improve skin tone
– and much more!

Bioidentical Hormones are identical to the molecular formula of hormones created by your own body. The use of bio-identical hormones can increase the levels of hormones such as progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone to youthful levels.
Human Growth Hormones are key to maintaining a youthful appearance. The decrease of HGH is often associated with aging, and can lead to obesity, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and decreased immunity. These can be reversed using the proper hormone replacement therapy.
Menopause sees the onset of declining hormones that can negatively impact your day-to-day life, as well as your overall feelings of well-being. Menopausal women often feel “out of sync” as their levels of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone decrease.
'Male Menopause' is also an age-related “change of life” experienced by men. Men can suffer changing hormone levels and lowered testosterone levels that can lead to mental and physical changes.
Testosterone is responsible for muscle mass, libido, and energy level in both men and women. Restoring testosterone to proper levels can lead to a more healthy sex drive, higher energy levels, increased muscle mass, and better mental focus.
For both men and women, thyroid levels will decrease with age, leading to metabolism and the lowering of body temperature. This can contribute to depression and low energy. By implementing a hormone replacement therapy plan, these symptoms are easily and inexpensively counteracted.
HOW DO WE WORK?
At KateNicole Clinic we have been studying leaders and game changers on the international stage in the area of anti aging medicine. We understand that each patient’s hormonal requirements is different, so will carefully evaluate your need for any of these therapies through an in depth analysis and evaluation, review of symptoms, medical history and a series of diagnostics.
Before prescribing hormones, it is necessary to determine if hormone replacement is right for you. The first step is a consultation to meet and will go over our philosophy, your expectations and the treatment goals. If you are ready to take the next step, we begin your evaluation, which consists of;
- A consultation to review your current concerns and any other health issues that may be relevant to your health.
- Baseline blood tests, adrenal stress test and human growth hormone urine profile to evaluate to carefully measure your current hormone levels.
- An evaluation analysis appointment where we will review your lab report and comprehensive medical history and lifestyle questionnaires, will make treatment recommendations based upon your health history, health status, lab results, symptoms concerns, lifestyle and hormone levels.
If your evaluation indicates that you would benefit from hormone therapy treatment or other treatment that needs to be monitored, you would begin the Treatment Program Phase, which is supervised and monitored throughout the year and can be renewed on a yearly basis.
Identifying deficiencies and prescribing appropriate hormones and supplements at proper levels requires careful supervision and on-going monitoring of your treatment. Your personalized plan includes a variety of specific paths to reach your ultimate goal of a balanced lifestyle in foundational areas such as HRT, nutrition, exercise, stress management, sleep, relationships and spirituality, as well as alternative and complementary therapies, and anti-aging cosmetic injectables and peels.
Our integrative approach includes a medical history and goals, lifestyle evaluation, bio-markers of aging testing, skin analysis, physical exam, medication information, injection lessons. Based on this information, we will then creates a unique anti-aging treatment plan based on your health history, goals, symptoms, and laboratory test results.
