New You Wellness Center | Serving Tomball, Cypress, Spring, Houston, Texas
Feel like your younger self again, boost your energy and slow down aging.
In many ways, as you move through your forties and into your fifties and sixties, you are hitting your prime. At this point, you’re smarter, more mature, and more compassionate. However, at this point in someone’s life, the time when you should be reaping the benefits of your hard work, there can be a sharp decline in energy levels, preventing them from being able to achieve their goals or perform to their best. Many times, this decrease in energy is caused by hormonal imbalances.
Are There Health Problems Associated with Hormonal Imbalances?
What many people are not aware of are the health problems that come with hormonal imbalances. In fact, when this happens, an individual can experience a myriad of problems including, but not limited to, chronic fatigue, lack of motivation, mood swings, decreased libido, hair loss, and increased weight gain. Many people who are experiencing hormonal imbalances typically mention that it’s challenging to get out of bed in the morning.
What are the common signs and symptoms of hormonal imbalances in men and women?
Hormone Replacement Therapy Can Help!
Bioidentical Hormone replacement therapy is quickly becoming one of the most common treatment options for men and women suffering from hormone imbalances. While there are many different forms of hormone replacement therapy, at the core, the goal is to introduce new hormones into the body, replacing old hormones that are no longer operating as intended.
For women, after menopause, the body no longer generates specific hormones anymore. At New You Wellness Center, with hormone therapy, we can help treat common postmenopausal symptoms. In fact, there have been numerous studies that have proven that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help prevent bone loss and even reduce fracture in women post-menopause.
Benefits of Hormone Therapy
Hormones control and direct many of the functions in the human body. As you might imagine, with bioidentical hormone therapy, the benefits can be immense. Here are some of the many benefits that patients at New You Wellness Center have reaped from our hormone therapy services:
- Reduce chronic pains
- Achieve better sleep at night

Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women
In the female human body, the two most common hormones are progesterone and estrogen. Both, together, play a pivotal role in the female’s body ability to reproduce. In fact, estrogen is responsible for the release of eggs whereas the progesterone focuses more on the implantation of the eggs.
Now, when a female ages, naturally, the human body stops generating eggs. As this happens, the estrogen levels follow suit, resulting in a hormonal imbalance. Many times, this happens to women in their 40s; however, there are many different factors that can alter this. When estrogen levels in the human body begin to decrease, this is when females start to experience hot flashes and other related symptoms.
At New You Wellness Center, we have a few different hormone replacement therapy options for women:
- Estrogen-Only Hormone Replacement Therapy: This is strictly for women who have undergone a hysterectomy, where the body no longer needs progesterone.
- Cyclical Hormone Therapy: This type of hormone therapy is typically suggested for women that are concurrently menstruating. This type of HRT includes both estrogen and progesterone; however, they are taken on a cyclical basis.
- Continuous Hormone Therapy: When a woman is done with menopause, continuous hormone therapy is often the prescribed treatment. This includes both types of female hormones – and is taken over time.
- Local Estrogen: This is typically used for women that are experiencing vaginal dryness and/or irritations.
- Testosterone Replacement Therapy.
Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men
Often times, when people refer to hormone therapy, they only refer to women. However, like women, as men age, the human body naturally stops producing normal levels of testosterone. Testosterone is one of the most important hormones for a male, as it’s responsible for male sexual development, reproduction, muscles, bone density, and much more.
When a male stops generating normal levels of testosterone, it can lead an individual to a decrease in muscle development, increase weight gain, tension or aggression, and decreased libido. This is what we refer to as low T symptoms. The best way to diagnose whether or not you have low t levels is to visit New You Wellness Center and receive a testosterone level test.
With that being said, there are a few different types of hormone therapy for men:
- Testosterone Patches: These are patches that men can place onto specific areas of the body. These help to stimulate more growth of testosterone in the male body.
- Testosterone Injections (T Shots): T Shots, or testosterone injections, are testosterone injections that an individual receives on a biweekly, or once per three weeks. These are often recommended for men that have a substantially ‘low t’ count.
- Testosterone Gel: This is simply a gel that a man can apply to their shoulders or abdomen, helping to stimulate more testosterone.

Hormone Replacement Therapy Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What causes hormone imbalances?
Hormone imbalances occur in the human body when the endocrine glands can’t operate or function as intended. These glands are responsible for producing hormones and releasing them into one’s bloodstream. Naturally, there are different causes that lead to problems with the endocrine glands. Here are just a few occurrences that can lead to a hormone imbalance:
Perimenopause / Menopause / PostMenopause
Poor Diet and Nutrition
Cancers and Treatments
Toxins and Pollutants in the air.
How is Hormone Therapy Administered?
Hormone Therapy truly depends on each individual patient. Depending on the specific test results, the medical staff at New You Wellness Center will create a custom hormone therapy plan just for you. There is a wide assortment of ways for an individual to receive hormone therapy including, creams, medications, injectables, pellets, or even gels.
What are bioidentical hormones and how are they prepared?
In hormone therapy, there are two different types of hormones that can be used: bioidentical hormones and synthetic hormones. Bioidentical hormones are created to match human hormones on a molecular level. Do note, these are not individually prepared for each patient, but rather created by an official compounding pharmacy. On the other hand, synthetic hormones are manufactured and currently being phased out in the industry due to their links to cancer and other complications.
Is hormone replacement therapy safe?
Yes, hormone replacement therapy is safe for both men and women. There have been numerous studies citing evidence and documenting the true benefits of hormone therapy.
Does Hormone Therapy lead to an increased risk of health problems?
A common misperception of hormone therapy is that it can lead to an increased risk of breast cancer. This is not the case. In fact, when women undergo hormone replacement therapy for less than 10 years, there is no evidence of such risk. At New You Wellness Center, our goal is to help you feel more youthful and back on track as quickly as possible. Hormone Therapy has proven to be an effective technique to balance one’s hormones, empowering them with a whole new level of vitality and livelihood.
What happens if you stop hormone replacement therapy?
If you start on hormone replacement therapy and suddenly stop, symptoms may return. In fact, sometimes, symptoms may return to the levels when the therapy first started. It’s highly recommended that, if you are thinking of stopping hormone replacement therapy, communicate directly with our staff prior to this decision so that we can recommend the safest ways of discontinuing treatment and explain what to expect.
