How it Works

Hormone optimization therapy (HOT) is a medical approach that aims to restore and balance hormone levels in individuals experiencing hormonal imbalances or deficiencies. The therapy involves the use of bioidentical hormones, which are identical in structure to the hormones naturally produced by the body. The process begins with a comprehensive evaluation that includes a thorough medical history and laboratory tests to assess hormone levels as well as determining the patients health and wellness goals, such as weight, libido, sex drive, and more.

Based on the evaluation, a personalized treatment plan is developed. Treatment may involve supplementation with bioidentical hormones, which are available in various forms such as creams, gels, injections, or pellets. These hormones are carefully prescribed and administered to mimic the body’s natural hormone production. Throughout the treatment process, regular monitoring is crucial to ensure the therapy’s effectiveness and safety. Hormone levels are regularly measured through laboratory tests, and adjustments to the treatment plan are made as needed. The goal is to achieve and maintain optimal hormone levels within the individual’s unique physiological range to unlock the bodies full potential.
