A woman’s hormonal response is very unique. Because of this, responses to hormone replacement therapy are very different but almost ways cause an improvement in a woman’s overall condition. Hormones begin to decline very rapidly for women a few years before menopause. Menopause is defined as the point where a woman does not have her period for 12 months or more. The decline in hormones that begins before this is called perimenopause. This can be as dramatic as menopause for many women and the symptoms are often times excruciating; hot flashes, night sweats, cramping, bloating, breast tenderness, vaginal dryness, urinary incontinence, just to name a few.
With Female hormone replacement therapy, there is no reason you need to suffer through these! Just because your doctor told you that it’s “normal” to have declining hormones or that hormones are “dangerous” doesn’t mean that you need to suffer anymore!

Testosterone is an absolutely necessary hormone for men, and there has definitely been a boom in what we understand about testosterone in recent years. We also know that after about age 30, men’s testosterone can decline up to 2% every single year, which is known as andropause. Unfortunately, there has recently been a new layer to why our hormones deplete- ENVIRONMENTAL factors. These are pesticides, BPAs, hormones, pollutants, and “dirty electricity” (WiFi/Bluetooth) and more. We know that in the last two decades our endocrine systems have been completely assaulted, and hormone therapy has become a need for the masses. Now that we have found a way to replace the hormones that we have lost, we can now not only increase our life-spans, but more
Testosterone is an essential hormone in both men and women. This important hormone is produced in women’s ovaries and adrenal glands. While women produce much less testosterone than men do, that small amount of testosterone is critical for maintaining optimal sexual health and well-being. Testosterone levels decline rapidly during menopause, producing a variety of unpleasant symptoms.

Progesterone is a hormone produced by the ovaries and adrenal glands. There are progesterone receptors in the brain, breasts, blood vessels, and vagina. Over time, levels of this essential hormone decline with menopause. Progesterone is so important that it is necessary during the premenopausal, peri-menopausal, and postmenopausal stages of a woman’s life to maintain optimal cognitive and physical function.
One of the most troubling symptoms of menopause is often insomnia, which can be rapidly and dramatically treated with progesterone therapy. If progesterone is replaced when it declines it can significantly improve, if not eliminate, symptoms of PMS and menopause. Additionally, women who have had hysterectomies often benefit from being on progesterone therapy.

It’s estimated over 20 million American’s have some form of thyroid issue affecting them. The current medical model is failing us when it comes to conventional thyroid treatment. They take a very broad approach when it comes to diagnosing thyroid issues and many people get put on thyroid medications that don’t really need to be on. Or worse they get put on a medication that doesn’t alleviate the symptoms when the doctor is telling you that your levels are good. The most common thyroid disease in America is hypothyroidism which is when there are not enough thyroid hormones in the body.
Our functional medicine practitioners think outside the conventional medical model. We feel that it’s important for hormone levels to be at their “optimal” levels not just within the average. A very similar approach is taken with your Sex hormones: Testosterone, Estrogen and Progesterone.
At our Denver HRT clinic, we look at the big picture and take a comprehensive look at your physiology to make sure it’s all functioning optimally. In many cases when sex hormone optimization is unable to alleviate some of the symptoms is due to thyroid issue that is also present.
