Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) — a treatment that can provide many benefits to both men and women
Hormones play a much bigger role in maintaining one’s health than many people realize. In fact, relatively healthy individuals who follow an optimal diet and supplementation plan may still suffer from hormonal imbalance symptoms such as:
- Weight gain
- Hot flashes and night sweats
- Dry skin & hair
- Low libido
For this reason, a proper balance of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol, and other hormones are essential. An imbalance of one hormone can initiate a cascade of events that alters other hormones. Hormones imbalances can also be a cause of stubborn weight loss plateaus.
At Equilibrium Weight Loss & Longevity, we offer female and male hormone replacement therapy. Our patient’s receive bioidentical hormones, which are identical to the hormones naturally produced by the body. This therapy can decrease the unpleasant side effects associated with menopause, andropause, and hormone imbalances in general. Whether you have an estrogen imbalance, are interested in testosterone replacement, or want hormone and micronutrient testing to determine whether or not there is an imbalance, we can help.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
Bioidentical hormones replace decreasing hormone levels during the natural aging process. The focus of HRT is to replace hormones that the natural aging process takes away. This technique allows you to look and feel years younger—and who doesn’t want that? The right hormone balance won’t help just with weight loss, libido, and energy levels. It can improve overall longevity and quality of life, too.
Besides affecting the way we look, feel, and act, hormone imbalances can alter our risk for the following diseases:
- Breast cancer
- Endometrial cancer
- Heart disease
- Polycystic Ovary Disease
Women often experience hormonal changes as they approach menopause. In fact, hormone imbalances can occur in women as young as 35 and result in a variety of side effects that impact libido, energy levels, mood, concentration, body mass index (often resulting in weight gain), and more.
Hormone replacement therapy for women
Hormone replacement therapy for men
Most people associate HRT with menopausal women, but more men than ever are benefiting from hormone replacement therapy. Many men experience low testosterone, which can negatively impact their weight, muscle tone, sex drive, and mental well-being. Our HRT programs are medically supervised by an experienced physician and can increase your quality of life, weight loss, sex drive, mood, and physical vitality.

You cannot fully achieve hormone health if you lack key micronutrients- vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, and metabolites. A single nutrient deficiency can negatively affect hormone levels since micronutrients are the building blocks of many hormones and assist in the control and regulation of our endocrine system.
Medically supervised HRT can make a big difference in your life. And at Equilibrium, we customize our programs for each patient’s needs, so we offer not only personalized data about what is going on inside your body, but also bio identical HRT solutions tailored to specific needs. We have locations in Dallas, Frisco, Houston, and Southlake. Book an appointment today.
