Why are hormones important?
Hormones affect so many aspects of our lives and when they are low or out of balance, we can be tired, irritable, and unable to focus. They can not only regulate how you feel, but also how your body works. Your quality of life is directly affected by your hormone levels and if they are in or out of balance. Many men and women start to notice the symptoms of a hormone issue in the mid 40’s to 50’s. While some of these symptoms can be mild or uncomfortable, others can be debilitating. This is not an exhaustive list, however it does cover many of the most reported ones.
- Hot flashes
- Mood swings
- Decreased libido
- Fat gain around the stomach
- Disrupted Sleep
- Muscle Weakness
- Thinning Hair
- Dry Skin
What is Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)?
HRT primarily focuses on replacing or rebalancing the hormones usually made by your body. It is generally used to treat the symptoms addressed above, as well as others that may not be as noticeable, like bone loss and cognitive issues. This type of therapy has been around since the 1930’s and has been steadily gaining popularity. At A Better Weigh Center, we tailor your hormone replacement therapy to your specific needs. Dr Hamilton offers this therapy to her male and female patients with Bio-identical Hormone programs.

What are Bio-Identical Hormones?
At A Better Weigh Center, we us Bio-Identical Hormones for all our clients, which are identical to the hormones that our bodies naturally made. Derived from extracts of plants like yams and soy, the pellets are placed under the skin and consistently release small doses of hormones into the body. More convenient than other hormone replacement options, the pellets can last for 3-5 months, giving patients a break from daily application of creams.
What to expect?
Many patients report major changes within the first few weeks after insertion of the pellets. Some of the first effects are better sleep, sexual arousal, elevated moods and better mental clarity.
