Hormone therapy begins by testing your body’s natural hormone levels to get an indication of your baseline health. Hormone levels can be checked by saliva, blood, and urine testing.

This can be accomplished through a variety of medications and supplements.

Our Hormone Health Program includes an initial blood and saliva test and a full consultation with the provider, who will discuss your lifestyle, history, and symptoms. Part of our mission is helping people understand how an overall healthy and balanced lifestyle affects your hormones.
