HRT & Hormonal Imbalance Treatments
SHELL Medical Hormone Health & Wellness Services
Hormonal balance is an integral part of an integrative approach to total health and wellness.
"Your hormones regulate most of your bodily functions, from mood to sleep to maintaining a healthy weight. Yet few people recognize the importance of hormonal health, much less the effect imbalanced hormones can have on their overall wellbeing. At Shell Medical, we're working to change that."
Hormone Health – Optimal Health Starts Here
Hormone Replacement Therapies (HRT)
There are two types of hormone replacement therapy. The most common is combined HRT, which includes oestrogen and progestogen. Oestrogen-only HRT is typically reserved for women who have had a radical hysterectomy.
Estrogen replacement therapy may be prescribed to help treat the symptoms of menopause, particularly hot flashes and night sweats. It can also help prevent bone loss, which is especially dangerous for women as they get older.
Low Testosterone Treatment
Low testosterone causes more issues than sexual dysfunction. It can also lead to physical changes like less muscle mass and increased body fat, as well as emotional ones, such as depression and difficulty concentrating.
Adrenal Fatigue Treatment
Adrenal fatigue occurs when your adrenal glands fail to produce the proper amount of cortisol and other hormones. Symptoms of adrenal insufficiency may include unexplained weight loss, body aches, and fatigue.
Hyperthyroidism (too much) and hypothyroidism (too little) are the two most common types of thyroid disorders. Fatigue, irregular heartbeat, unexplained weight gain or loss, and irritability are symptoms of a thyroid disorder.
Common menstrual disorders include painful cramps (dysmenorrhea), heavy bleeding (menorrhagia), infrequent menstruation (oligomenorrhea), and absence of menstruation (amenorrhea).
Hormone Pellet Therapy
Hormone pellet therapy involves inserting a tiny pellet (about the size of a grain of rice) under the skin. The treatment uses bio-identical hormones and, unlike shots or pills, allows for a continuous, gradual release of the hormone.
