Hormone Therapy

Hormones, vital chemical messengers produced within your body, orchestrate a myriad of bodily functions, from metabolism to fertility. However, as the years pass, natural declines in hormone production can lead to imbalances, triggering various symptoms. Menopause is a common contributor to hormonal imbalance in women, but other causes may include inflammation, stress, lifestyle factors, toxin exposures, and more.

Recognizable signs of hormonal imbalance include:

  • hot flashes
  • irritability
  • brain fog
  • depressed mood
  • fatigue
  • insomnia
  • low libido
  • vaginal dryness
  • painful sex
  • hair loss
  • dry skin
  • dry eyes
  • thin or aging skin, including wrinkles
  • weight gain

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can restore balance and enhance your well-being. For optimal results and minimal side effects, we utilize bio-identical hormone therapy. These hormones are identical to those naturally produced in the human body, unlike synthetic alternatives created in the lab. Bio-identical hormones are available in various forms, including creams, patches, pills, suppositories, and pellets. They can be obtained in FDA-approved forms from conventional pharmacies or in customized formulations from compounding pharmacies.

Regardless of the chosen form of hormone therapy, it’s important to recognize that your body requires time to adjust to supplemental hormones. Patience is key as you navigate through the process, and it’s beneficial to track any changes you observe over time so that Dr. Kahan can make necessary adjustments to your regimen. Hormone therapy isn’t a quick fix, and so with that in mind, our hormone replacement therapy is offered as part of an initial 4 month program, where we can tailor treatment to the individual patient.

Ditch the One-Size-Fits-All Approach:

Our consultations go beyond addressing a single symptom. We take the time to understand your overall health picture, similar to how a detective investigates a crime scene, not just a single clue.

Advanced Diagnostics, Not Just Guesses:

We utilize specialized lab tests to uncover potential roadblocks to your well-being, such as hormonal imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, and hidden inflammation. By identifying these underlying issues, we can help prevent future health concerns, and also help ensure that we are replacing hormones into a healthy environment so that we can achieve the best possible results.

Your Personalized Roadmap to Wellness:

We create a customized plan specifically for you. We’ll address factors contributing to your health challenges (like toxins or chronic inflammation), while incorporating solutions that support your body’s natural healing abilities (including vitamins or supplements, if needed).

Your Success is Our Priority:

We are here to support you every step of the way, through nutrition, stress reduction, supplementation, and toxin-avoidance. We want to help you establish sustainable healthy habits and achieve long-term wellness. We’re your partner on the path to a vibrant and thriving life!

At SheMD, we prioritize providing the highest quality care for our patients. One aspect of our commitment to your well-being is that we do not accept insurance for HRT.

While insurance can help cover various medical expenses, it often comes with limitations and restrictions that can compromise the quality and individualized nature of your treatment. By operating independently of insurance, we can focus solely on what’s best for you, tailoring your HRT regimen to your specific needs and preferences without interference from third-party payers.

We understand that navigating healthcare expenses can be challenging, which is why we offer transparent pricing and flexible payment options to make HRT accessible to all our patients. Our goal is to provide you with the best possible care and support on your journey to optimal health and wellness.

When you’re prepared to begin, feel free to call the office and schedule a visit. Online booking is also available, offering the convenience of scheduling from the comfort of your home, anytime, day or night.
