Every individual has a unique balance of hormones within their body. Where those levels lie can affect a person's health, including:
- Energy levels
- Sexual function
- Endocrine system function
- Muscle mass
- Metabolic rate
- and more
At Transformyou, we offer a variety of hormone replacement therapies to optimize your body's levels in a way that maximizes your health and helps you feel like your best self.
Here are some of the different hormone therapies we offer.
TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
Testosterone is a hormone produced naturally by the body that helps a man (or a woman) maintain energy, improves their mood, increases bone strength, assists sex drive and sexual function, increases muscle mass, and boosts strength.
There are ranges for testosterone levels that are considered normal, and the brain and the sexual organs work together to keep testosterone within this range. However, normal levels of testosterone can change as you age and your body may need assistance (such as Testosterone Replacement) in providing the right amount to sustain you.

HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE THERAPY
As we age, the endocrine system does not respond as well to our body's needs. The human growth hormone (HGH) is one of the most important hormones affected by aging and is important for healthy cell production.
Human growth hormone (HGH) is a protein-based peptide hormone that stimulates cell growth, reproduction and regeneration. While we are young, ample amounts of growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) is produced to sustain our health, vitality and otherwise normal aspects of form and function. GHRH, however, declines with age, causing reduced cell production and secretion of pituitary HGH and thereby increasing the result of adult growth hormone insufficiency (AGHD).
With Human Growth Hormone therapy, you'll see the increased stimulation of growth, cell reproduction and regeneration to combat aging.

ESTROGEN AND PROGESTERONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
Progesterone and estrogen replacement therapies aim to get back what the body is no longer naturally producing (or maybe wasn't producing enough of in the first place). Studies show that estrogen replacement helps protect women from heart attacks/disease, helps relieve menopause symptoms, aids in the preservation of bone density and muscle mass, improves metabolic rate, decreases LDL, increases HDL, maintains skin collagen and decreases the risk of developing diabetes.
In women, estrogen replacement therapy primarily targets the function of the uterus, vaginal tissues, breasts, muscles, bones, skin and brain. Low estrogen levels can increase LDL levels (the harmful cholesterol) and decrease HDL (the good cholesterol), which means a healthy level of estrogen aids in controlling harmful and healthy cholesterol in your body.
Progesterone replacement therapy primarily balances estrogen but it also improves sleep and mood, increases your metabolic rate, acts as a natural diuretic and enhances action of the thyroid hormones.
It's important for women of every age to have their progesterone and estrogen levels tested every couple of years. What may feel normal to you may not actually be normal or what you body actually needs.

THYROID HORMONE OPTIMIZATION
Underactive thyroid function is becoming more common and is horribly under-diagnosed. The good news is that once it's diagnosed, it can be very easy to treat, and Thyroid Hormone optimization can help alleviate your symptoms.
The thyroid gland helps regulate the body's metabolic rate. If the thyroid gland is not working properly or can’t produce sufficient amounts of thyroid hormones, your metabolism decreases, fatigue sets in and you can gain weight all too easily.
A simple blood test on the thyroid can help determine if you could benefit from thyroid hormone optimization.
