Symptoms of hormonal imbalances may include low energy and fatigue, PMS, hair loss, low libido, increased anxiety and irritability, mood swings, hot flashes, night sweats, temperature intolerances, cognitive difficulties and brain fog, irregular cycles, adult-onset acne, hair loss, weight changes, joint pain, loss of muscle mass, and extreme thirst or hunger.
These imbalances can be caused by a wide range of issues. When most men and women reach their 40’s and 50’s, many of their hormone producing glands such as ovaries, testicles, thyroid gland, and adrenals gradually produce less and less hormones over time. Stress, lack of exercise, poor eating habits, environment, obesity, and addiction to substances are some other common contributing factors to hormonal imbalances. However, aging and diet are usually the main causes.
Yes, hormone replacement therapy is very safe. We only use hormones from FDA-regulated 503a compounding pharmacies. HRT has been used for decades to treat symptoms and manage hormonal imbalances. All hormone programs are developed and overseen by Dr. Mayra Thompson and our medical board.
You should not use HRT if you:
All pellets and hormone injections administered in the clinic are given by Dr. Mayra Thompson or a registered nurse. All nurses have been trained by Dr. Thompson and operate under guidelines and protocols developed and approved by Dr. Thompson.
Get started on your new HRT program by booking a lab draw to test your hormone levels. You may book a lab draw Monday through Friday by calling us at 972-685-2917 or by booking online through our portal.
Pellets require a small incision for insertion. Our staff will apply a local anesthetic and will make you as comfortable as possible. The site may be sore for a day or two, but the pellets themselves should not cause any pain or discomfort. You may have slight bruising at the site afterwards, but any other pains that may arise, please call us and our nursing staff will answer any questions.
This will depend on a number of factors, including your goals, your current symptoms, your health, and your current levels. Dr. Thompson will thoroughly analyze your health at your initial consult and will go over timelines with you. HRT is a proven treatment option, but not every case is the same. Please be prepared to ask Dr. Thompson any questions you may have and she will be glad to help.
Along with hormone therapy, your personalized treatment plan may include vitamin infusions and injections, oral supplements, gut health optimization, and lifestyle changes like sleep, stress, exercise, and diet. Depending on your symptoms and health history, our physician may recommend additional bloodwork to test for deficiencies of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and fatty acids in the body. These nutrients help the endocrine system function properly, and even form the building blocks of naturally produced hormones.
Along with Vitalife’s standard New Client Form packet, you will be required to complete Dr. Thompson’s health intake forms prior to your first consultation with Dr. Thompson. It is recommended that you get your blood drawn for the HRT hormone levels test prior to booking your consultation.
