Portland area physician answers, what is hormone replacement therapy?

Imbalanced hormones can cause a number of problems for both men and women as they age. Andropause and menopause are changes in the hormonal balance that can result in:

  • Loss of sexual desire
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Increased depression and/or anxiety
  • Hot flashes
  • Chronic headaches
  • Night sweats and difficulty sleeping
  • Increased irritability

While many men and women suffer through this life change, they don’t have to. They can improve their quality of life by considering methods of treating the problem at its core. This is why it may be important for some men and women to consider hormone replacement therapy during these transitional periods in their lives.

Patients often ask their doctor, what is hormone replacement therapy? Portland area physician Dr. Adam Maddox of Thrive describes hormone replacement therapy as a method of balancing the natural hormones to help the body function at its best. When patients are going through menopause or andropause, they may be experiencing the symptoms above, which can negatively affect their quality of life. Instead, these patients can seek the assistance of a naturopathic aesthetic medicine specialist such as the team of Thrive to ensure their hormones are balanced appropriately.

Dr. Adam Maddox believes that hormone replacement therapy is the ideal way to assist the changing body in maintaining its overall health and wellbeing while eliminating many of the symptoms and signs associated with menopause in women and andropause in men. His team provides HRT for patients to help them feel their best and enjoy a better quality of life.

If you are interested in learning more about hormone replacement therapy (also referred to as HRT), contact Dr. Adam Maddox and the team of Thrive in Portland, Oregon to schedule your initial consultation appointment to find out if this method of balancing the hormones in your body is right for you! A series of tests can be done to determine the levels of hormones naturally occurring in your body to find out the proper balance necessary to feel your best.
