Optimal Health Depends on
Why balance your hormones?
Hormones are the body’s main mechanism for cell communication. They control numerous processes, from growth and development to appetite and the immune system. Hormone deficiencies or imbalances may lead to significant downstream effects on major systems of the body.
Establishing optimal hormone health can mean a higher quality of life as you age.
Hormone levels gradually
decline with age.
Some women may experience a significant drop in estrogen levels during menopause. Similarly, some men can experience a decrease in testosterone as they age as well, a phenomenon commonly referred to as “andropause.”
Exposure to stress and toxins can speed up the loss in hormone balance for both men and women. Hormonal imbalances can stem from conditions such as:
- Andropause (low testosterone in men)
- Cortisol imbalance (burnout)
- Thyroid disorders
- Chronic medication use including birth control
If left untreated, these imbalances may result in pronounced symptoms of aging, including but not limited to:
- Weight gain & poor exercise tolerance
- Low sex drive
- Mood swings & depression
- Decreased energy & fatigue
- Poor concentration & memory loss
Think you might have a hormone imbalance? We’re here to help.
Balancing your hormones for optimal health requires comprehensive treatment options and a personalized plan. We take a Precision Health Care approach to assess and address possible hormone imbalances and provide a tailored solution unique to you.
Our providers are among the select few that have completed additional rigorous education in this field – including certification and fellowship programs from the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) and the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM).
Our providers have helped thousands of women and men enjoy: lower body fat and increased lean muscle mass, enhanced stamina and vigor, improved libido, more focus and an improved mood, and an overall higher quality of life.
Our Approach to
A functional medicine approach leans on the body’s natural healing capabilities to produce and balance hormones, taking a deeper look at whole-person health. This includes stress factors, diet, exercise, and other imbalances in the body informed through specialty testing.
From there, an individualized plan is developed to support hormone balance through lifestyle factors, as well as supplementation of naturally occurring vitamins and minerals to support the body in creating more hormones on its own.
Peptides are short strings of amino acids and the building blocks of proteins that the body naturally produces. They act as the master control for many functions, including hormone production. As a natural growth hormone alternative, peptides help to improve overall health and physical performance by naturally stimulating production and release of your body’s own growth hormone. Our peptide therapy programs are built to target athletic performance, weight management and longevity.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) provides a method of restoring health that relies on the body’s natural processes to replace and rebalance depleted hormones. This can be accomplished in several different ways, including creams, injections, or pellets. BHRT using pellets consists of a customized procedure where a provider administers a pellet under the skin that releases hormones identical in chemical structure to those produced naturally by the body. Doses and combinations are specifically measured for a patient’s individual needs.
Managing a Thyroid Condition
A thyroid condition is often the cause of hormone inefficiencies or imbalances. We address a possible thyroid condition by first exploring the root cause of the condition, then applying a functional medicine approach to treatment. A provider may “prescribe” dietary changes and supplementation to allow the body to regulate the immune system naturally over time.
In some cases, patients are able to manage a thyroid condition through lifestyle adaptations and supplementation which provides a more suitable long-term solution than a lifetime of synthetic hormones through medication.

Essential Insights: What are the Benefits of Cold Therapy?
The body has adapted for thousands of years to overcome physical adversities and weather extreme circumstances – escaping a predator, going a length of time without food, and migrating to climates suitable for survival. Humans have also evolved to experience drastic shifts in temperature, reacting physiologically to heat and cold by either sweating to cool…
What Does It Mean to Optimize Your Health?
There is no doubt that conventional medicine has made incredible strides when it comes to extending the human lifespan. Since 1950, the average life expectancy has increased by over 10 years in the U.S. and by over 30 years across the globe. Much of this progress is due to advances in medical care and screening…
Functional Medicine vs. Integrative Medicine: What’s the Difference?
Several approaches to health care have emerged in the industry, many of which intersect and stem from one another and provide different means of eliminating disease and promoting health. Among these include functional medicine and integrative medicine. While both challenge the status quo of conventional care, they are nuanced in practice and benefit patients in…
