About Hormone Replacement Therapy

HORMONES overview

Hormone therapy can be a viable solution to improve the quality of life for men and women dealing with hormonal imbalances.

Hormones are simply chemicals produced by glands throughout your endocrine system. These chemicals travel through the bloodstream to your organs and tissues, regulating functions such as metabolism and appetite, weight, heart rate, sleep cycles, reproductive cycles, sexual function, mood and stress levels, body temperature, hair growth, and general growth and development.

symptoms of hormone imbalances

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.


After testing your hormone levels, our physician can prescribe Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) to address the negative effects of imbalances to help relieve the symptoms you may be experiencing and slow the aging process.


Our physician prescribes several different types of HRT, including Bioidentical Hormone Replacement as well as traditional hormone therapies. These treatments use hormones like testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone in specific doses to restore balance to your body. Other factors considered in your treatment plan include your age, your family health history, your personal medical history, and the overall severity of your symptoms. 


Our physician will design a personalized treatment program based on lab testing and symptoms to help balance your levels and put you on the road to a happier and healthier life.

what are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical Hormones are manmade hormones derived from plant estrogens that are chemically identical to those the human body produces. Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are among those most commonly replicated and used in treatment.

These hormones come in various forms, including pills, patches, creams, injections, and pellets. Each delivery method has their own unique benefits. Our physician will tailor your treatments and will recommend the best method to fit your needs.

If your symptoms are bothersome or are progressing, our physician may adjust the dosage or form of hormone therapy to help reduce the side effects. Never make changes in your therapy or cease taking it without first consulting the physician.

You should not use HRT if you:

  • Think that you are pregnant
  • Have problems with vaginal bleeding
  • Have had certain kinds of cancers
  • Have had a stroke or heart attack
  • Have had blood clots
  • Have liver disease

is it safe?

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.

Who administeres the pellets and inejctions?

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.

do i need to book a consult?

Yes, all hormone programs begin with a 60 minute consultation with Dr. Mayra Thompson. Dr. Thompson will review your lab results as well as your personal health and family health history to verify your eligibility for HRT and get you started on a personalized program.

How do i book a lab draw?

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 here.

Do the pellets hurt?

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.

How long until i see results?

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.

how long do i have to do hrt?

In general, there is no time limit to how long you can or may take hormone therapy. Our physician will work with you to prescribe the lowest dose of hormone therapy that will work for you, and will continue to monitor your levels and reevaluate your treatment plan as you continue with hormone therapy.

Please do not adjust your dosage or cease taking therapy without first consulting with our physician.

If you develop a new medical condition while undergoing hormone therapy, please follow up with us and our physician will set up a consult to discuss if it is still safe to continue with hormone therapy.

what else can i do to help hormonal imbalances?

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.

Do i have to book a consult first?

No, consults are not required to book an IV, shot, or lab draw. A brief consultation may be required prior to Ozone infusions. Our staff will notify you if you need to come in early for your first Ozone. If you have signed up for custom infusions, we will call to you schedule a brief consultation to go over your lab testing results, custom therapies, and recommended schedules.

If you are a new client to Vitalife, you will be asked to fill out a brief health questionnaire, our liability waiver, and our terms & conditions when you sign up for an account online using our booking portal. If you call us, we will take your information and send you the forms electronically to fill out prior to arrival. We will also send you a hormone consult intake form to complete prior to your consultation with Dr. Thompson.

Unfortunately, insurance is not accepted. The field of preventative medicine is evolving, and we are hoping to find solutions to allow for insurance billing in the future.

Do you accept hsa, fsa, or care credit?

We do currently accept Health Savings Account and Flex Spending Account debit cards. We do not currently take Care Credit, but have requested authorization as an approved practice for Care Credit.
