Wellness Q & A

How does hormone therapy support wellness?

The goal of hormone therapy is essentially returning hormone levels to the point that works best for your body, which relieves the numerous symptoms hormone loss can cause. 

Hormone therapy replaces hormones that the body no longer makes or doesn’t make enough of. Natural changes in hormone levels happen during menopause for all women. 

The main hormones that women lose with age include:


Estrogen thickens the uterine lining, helps prevent osteoporosis (bone thinning), helps manage cholesterol levels, and helps keep your vagina healthy.



Progesterone helps prepare your uterus for pregnancy, regulates blood pressure, and boosts mood and sleep quality.

It’s important to know that these are just a fraction of the beneficial effects of hormones. Every hormone has specific benefits and impacts on the body. Returning them to balance offers numerous wellness benefits.


How does hormonal imbalance affect wellness?

Hormones play a vital role in mood, temperature regulation, weight management, sexual health, hair growth, and many other aspects of wellness. 

Women often experience hot flashes, night sweats, low libido, and other issues due to low hormones. At the same time, men usually have muscle loss, decreased sex drive, and high irritability levels because of hormone depletion.

Essentially, when your hormones aren’t right, you aren’t right. 


Does medical weight loss promote wellness?

Medical weight loss program participants can experience a multitude of health and wellness benefits, including reduced cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and fasting blood sugar levels. 

Losing excess weight also helps with:

  • Improved mobility
  • Pain reduction
  • Better sex 
  • Less erectile dysfunction
  • Improved mood
  • Better sleep
  • Higher self-esteem

Maintaining a healthy weight may significantly reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, fatty liver disease, type 2 diabetes, and even some cancers.
