Hormone Replacement Therapy Q&A

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Traditionally, hormone replacement therapy means taking plant or animal-derived substances that replicate hormones you’re missing in your body. While these hormones are pretty close to your own natural hormones, they’re not exactly the same. 

Plus, adding hormones is only a temporary solution — it doesn’t stimulate your own natural hormone production.

At Boost, Dr. Mulcahy uses a more natural approach to hormone replacement therapy. She helps you restore your own hormones by eliminating the issues that caused your hormone imbalance in the first place.

When might I need natural hormone replacement therapy?

You might need natural hormone restoration if you’re struggling with the symptoms of hormone imbalance. These problems commonly arise around age 40 or older and can occur in both women and men. Some common symptoms of hormone imbalance are: 

  • Weight gain
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Difficulty with memory
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Thinning hair
  • Dry skin
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Bone thinning (osteoporosis) 
  • Reduced libido and other sexual health problems

 

There’s no doubt that hormone replacement can relieve these symptoms, so the main question is how to go about it. Boost offers patient-specific hormone replacement therapy plans to help you feel your best.

How does natural hormone replacement therapy work?

You start with comprehensive testing. There are several methods of hormone testing, including blood, urine, and saliva. Boost offers the dried urine test for comprehensive hormones (DUTCH test), which you can take from home. You get results in around a week, and then Dr. Mulcahy can recommend a specific hormone replacement plan for you. 

Inflammation is the root cause of aging and the problems that come with it. It can cause gut issues and hypothalamus, pituitary, and adrenal gland problems that lead to hormone problems. 

Dr. Mulcahy prescribes lifestyle changes, supplements, herbs, and other natural options that address the causes of inflammation to gradually restore your hormones to a healthy level. 

If necessary, she may prescribe natural hormone replacements as you work to heal your body and prompt hormone production from within. 

If you’re experiencing hormone issues and want to truly cure the problem and feel your best, Boost can help. Book your appointment online or call the office in your area for help today.
