Testosterone Therapy for Women
To most people, testosterone is strictly a male hormone. Although it is classified as an androgen it is just as important for women as it is for men. Women simply need less of it. Testosterone is largely responsible for the energy and motivation you once felt in your young adult life. It increases sex drive, helps build muscle, and even keeps your energy levels high. Unfortunately, with age comes the decline of testosterone for both men and women.

Estrogen Replacement Therapy
Estrogen is the hormone uniquely responsible for sexual and reproductive development in women. Along with progesterone, it is one of the most important hormones in the female body. These hormones impact a woman’s reproductive system, the skeletal structure, and even the liver and heart. All females are susceptible to low estrogen. As women move closer to menopause, however, estrogen levels acutely decrease resulting in a wide range of bothersome symptoms as well as aging. At SDBody we treat pre-menopausal, peri-menopausal, and post-menopausal women.
Common Symptoms of Low Estrogen
Low Sex Drive
Treatment for Low Estrogen
If you are currently experiencing any of the symptoms associated with low estrogen, you may benefit from hormonal treatment. With estrogen hormone replacement therapy not only will you likely feel better, but many of your symptoms should subside. Some of the other benefits estrogen does for your body includes lowering your risk of heart attack, prevention of osteoporosis, and protection of your brain from degenerative conditions like dementia.
SDBody individualizes each treatment based on your individual needs. Our estrogen-based therapies can be administered via pills, injections, and pellets.
Progesterone Replacement Therapy
Progesterone is a sex hormone involved in many processes throughout the body. One of the main purposes for progesterone is to act as a moderator for estrogen. It does so by controlling and balancing the actions of estrogen as well as ensuring healthy cell growth. A decline in progesterone is usually a result of aging and can have many negative effects on a woman’s health.
Common Symptoms of Low Progesterone
Pain & Inflammation
Heavy Menstruation Cycle
Decreased Sex Drive
What are the Treatment Options for Low Progesterone?
Most women can benefit from bioidentical progesterone replacement. Some of the many benefits of this therapy include protecting your brain from decline, reducing anxiety, acting as an anti-inflammatory, and even cuts food cravings. In almost all cases, we recommend combining estrogen and progesterone to achieve a balance.
Through the use of bio-identical hormones, women can experience a decrease in the symptoms linked with low progesterone. It is administered orally in the form of a pill. Once we have determined you have a deficiency in progesterone, we simply call in the prescription.
DHEA Replacement for Women
DHEA is naturally produced by our adrenal glands. For women, DHEA is a precursor to all the major sex hormones, which include estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Normally, DHEA declines with age, however, because the adrenal gland also produces cortisol, the stress hormone, your lifestyle and stress levels can limit the amount of DHEA your body can produce.
When your DHEA are low, you begin to feel symptoms of a hormonal imbalance which can include aching joints, extreme fatigue, and chronic illness. Without the right support to increase the DHEA levels, you can push your body into adrenal exhaustion.

Treatment for DHEA Deficiency
Many over the counter DHEA products are available in health stores, however, without the right medical tests, it’s impossible to know what your DHEA levels are. Moreover, just because you are getting older, doesn’t automatically mean your DHEA are low and you would benefit from replacement.
At SDBody we conduct thorough examinations that will allow us to pinpoint your exact hormonal needs. There are many factors that go into DHEA dosage. We look at your adrenal function as well as the other hormones affected by a DHEA deficiency. Our office will prescribe either pills or creams depending on your preference.
Sermorelin for Human Growth
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is necessary for growth and development during childhood and for maintenance of the metabolic system during adulthood. Produced by the pituitary gland, it allows for new cell growth and repair throughout various tissues in the body. More primarily, HGH assists in skin elasticity, energy, and boosting the immune system. Like everything else, HGH production declines with age. The result of this decline is the inability to generate new cell growth which in turn leads to aging, poor growth, and a risk of illness.

Is Sermorelin Right for You?
Sermorelin Acetate is a bioidentical Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) that is used to encourage your own HGH production.
Using Sermorelin greatly improves symptoms associated with low GH levels and even acts as an anti-aging solution. Many people who undergo Sermorelin treatment have reported faster metabolism resulting in decreased body fat, as well as better sleep, sharper mental acuity, increased sex drive and more.
At SDBody, we are able to provide patients with access to Sermorelin Acetate to help relieve their symptoms. Our office uses Sermorelin injections for faster results. Throughout your therapy, we closely monitor your blood work ensuring that the treatment is effective.
Thyroid Hormone Replacement
The thyroid gland is an organ located at the base of the neck. As part of the endocrine system, it exists to help with the release of hormones that are vital to your body’s functions. These functions include controlling the way you breathe, your weight, body temperature, and much more.
Healthy thyroid function is also essential to the balance of your other hormones. Low thyroid function usually signifies a problem somewhere else in your endocrine system. As a result, many of the symptoms will often overlap with other hormone imbalances. Proper diagnosis and treatment are needed to be on the right path to good health.
Common Symptoms of Low Thyroid Hormones in Women
Treatment for Low Thyroid
T3 and T4 are the two hormones created by the thyroid gland to regulate your body’s metabolism. Failure to produce these hormones forces your metabolism to slow down. This can be critical, as the metabolic rate is in charge of many processes in your body, including how quickly you digest food, how fast your heart beats, and even how fast your brain thinks.
One of the main reasons there is a decline in thyroid levels can be attributed to age. As a person grows older, the thyroid and pituitary gland start to slow down and no longer function as they used to.
Thyroid hormone replacement therapy is available to people who are struggling with a low thyroid function. SDBody offers thyroid hormone replacement by prescribing patients the right dosage of pills to control symptoms. Through the use of bioidentical thyroid that contains both T3 and T4, we help get your levels back to normal, resulting in a healthier you.
