Hormone Replacement Therapy Q&A

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy includes several different treatment options to equalize your hormone levels to their youthful level. However, Dr. Deckel, MD, only offers and practices holistic, integrative medicines and therapies.

The goal of hormone replacement therapy is to raise your hormone levels after you’ve experienced a natural decline that usually comes with age. Treatments can resolve uncomfortable and frustrating symptoms for both men and women, such as a reduced sex drive, weight gain, memory loss, fatigue and sexual dysfunction and hot flashes.

Talk to Dr. Dekel about hormone replacement therapy as a solution for any symptoms you may be experiencing. He has the expertise to diagnose your situation and provide treatment to help you feel like yourself again.

How does hormone replacement therapy work?

Dr. Dekel offers bioidentical hormone therapy to help you get the results you want.

The bioidentical hormones used by Dr. Dekel are derived from plants and contain zero synthetics or animal ingredients. They chemically match the hormones in your body, which means your body receives them easily and uses them to replenish and rebalance your hormone levels.

The therapy is administered with creams, injections and troches, which dissolve between your gum and cheek in about 30 minutes and absorb into your bloodstream to naturally increase your hormone levels.
