Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone replacement therapy, also known as HRT, is a replacement of female or male hormones for optimal health and wellness. Female hormones include estrogen and progesterone. They are released from the ovaries and influence changes in the body’s cycle which controls periods, moods and may contribute to a sense of well-being and healthiness. The main male hormone is testosterone. Testosterone is produced in the testes and affects libido, muscle mass, and fat distribution.

At A Better You, our hormone replacement therapy program can be beneficial for our patients. Some of the benefits of hormone replacement therapy that you may experience include:

  • Improves muscle function
  • Reduces the risks of heart attacks and heart failure
  • Prevents the appearance of aging skin

Medical Cannabis

Medical cannabis can be an effective tool to enhance overall well-being. At A Better You, we provide medical cannabis services that provide a wide array of benefits, including:

  • Reduced chronic pain – Cannabis has demonstrated pain-relieving qualities for some people with minor aches and pains. Also, cannabis has anti-inflammatory properties that can be effective in muscle pain.
  • Treats anxiety and depression – Certain compounds in cannabis can help in stabilizing moods which can ease depression and anxiety.
  • Helps with PTSD symptoms – Post-traumatic stress, also known as PTSD, doesn’t just affect veterans but any individual that goes through a trauma. Cannabis helps control the fight or flight response which is common with PTSD, preventing it from going into overdrive.
  • Lose weight – Yes, you read that correctly. If you look around, you will notice that the avid cannabis user is usually not overweight. That is because cannabis is linked to aiding your body in regulating insulin while managing caloric intake efficiently.
