A Comprehensive Approach to Hormone Therapy

 If you’re older than 40 and just don’t feel right, Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) could be your solution, but there are also side-effects to consider. At Point Lumineux, we take a more natural and comprehensive approach to HRT which we call Functional HRT. 

We look at the whole body function, while assessing your hormone needs. For instance, you might need other vital nutrients and hormone precursors that could relieve your symptoms further up the biochemical stream and earlier in the disease process. So if we improve the body function, you might need lower dose hormones with less potential for side-effects.

            Testosterone is required for male reproduction, healthy libido, muscle build, bone density optimal red blood cells levels. Minor potential side-effects of hormone therapy with testosterone include fluid retention, acne, and increased urination.  More severe potential side effects include breast enlargement, decreased testicle size, worsened existing sleep apnea, increased cholesterol levels, decreased sperm count, infertility, and increased number of red blood cells which results in high BP, chest pain, blurry vision or blood clots.

            At Point Lumineux, we combine functional medicine with Hormone Replacement Therapy to create a more comprehensive solution for your hormone imbalances with less potential for side-effects.  We use only the highest quality laboratory testing and bioidentical plant-based hormones from the best compounding pharmacies in the country.
