What Is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy is a form of treatment for hormonal imbalance, which can occur if you have too much or too little of a particular hormone in your bloodstream. Hormones are part of the endocrine system and can be thought of as chemical messengers that travel through your bloodstream to regulate most bodily processes — from sleep cycles, appetite and mood to reproductive functions.Hormonal imbalances can trigger symptoms that impact your physical, psychological and emotional well-being. While there are many possible symptoms of hormonal imbalance, some of the most common include:

The natural balance of your hormones can be upset by many factors, including stress and the natural aging process. At Vitality NP Family Health, nurse practitioner Svetlana Pyatigorskaya specializes in anti-aging and regenerative therapies, including hormone replacement therapy. As an active member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and the Cellular Medicine Association, she has more than three decades of experience, and her educational background in functional medicine is pertinent as she uses their protocols for intravenous (IV) therapy.

Why Do I Need Hormone Therapy?

One of the most well-known forms of hormone therapy is done to relieve symptoms of menopause, a natural part of aging for women. While menopause is a common reason for an individual to seek hormone replacement therapy, it’s not the only reason. Hormone therapy may be recommended for several types of hormonal imbalances that include:

Hormone therapy for women may be done to replace estrogen and progesterone when levels of these reproductive hormones are low, or they’re no longer produced by the body.

hormone replacement therapy for men may be done to relieve symptoms of low testosterone, such as erectile dysfunction, reduced libido, fatigue or depression.

This type of hormone therapy may be done as part of gender transitioning. Svetlana specializes in both feminizing hormone therapy  and masculinizing hormone therapy.

There are more than 50 endocrine glands in the body that produce hormones, and any of them may become imbalanced. For example, the pituitary gland may not make enough growth hormone or the thyroid gland may not make enough of its hormones. Hormone replacement therapy may be recommended for any condition that causes the body’s natural hormone level to be too high or too low.

Why Do I Need What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is done by using man-made hormones that are similar to those made naturally within your body. These hormones are developed at Vitality through special compounding practices. Unlike synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones are identical to the molecules naturally produced.Practitioners of restorative medicine, such as NYC-based Svetlana Pyatigorskaya of Vitality NP Family Health, use bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to treat and prevent conditions associated with aging. She is particularly adept at creating special compounds uniquely designed for your particular needs. Optimal hormones are used for more than just sexual function too. They’re also successfully incorporated in IV therapies for:
  • Skin health
  • Brain function
  • Preserving muscle mass
  • Fighting effects of aging
  • Restoring energy levels

At Vitality, the goal of hormone optimization is to restore hormone levels to that of a 25 to 30-year-old individual. This is done using topical creams, injections and pills. It can also be done as hormone pellet therapy, which involves placing a small pellet under the skin.
