Hormone Therapy customized for you, can change your life!
Hormones contribute to almost every process within the body and each type of hormone plays a complicated role and is vital to your everyday health. Optimizing (balancing) these hormones improves overall health and mood.
We have convenient monthly membership plans to fit your needs and budget.
Some 50 hormones act as chemical messengers to help your body do what it needs to do when it needs to do it. Every essential organ, from the brain to skin, depends on the powerful signals to conduct the body’s functions. Endocrine disruptors from natural sources and environmental toxins alike can cause breakdowns in this communication ultimately affecting; our response to physical stress, metabolism, reproduction, growth and development, and even cause cancer.
Many women begin seeing a decline in hormone levels in their mid to late 20s, and by mid to late 30s you might be feeling the uncomfortable symptoms. Fluctuations in these hormone levels can wreak havoc on a woman’s body and her emotional well-being. Correcting these problems requires an integrative approach:
Unfortunately, most traditional medical practices don’t take the time to find out WHY you don’t feel like yourself anymore. You may hear your doctor say “your levels are in range and look fine”, or “this is a normal part of the aging process”, then they proceed to write you prescriptions for antidepressants, anti-anxiety medication, sleeping pills, blood pressure medications, and other drugs that simply mask symptoms.
Feeling balanced is as easy as 1, 2, 3...
At Xsculpt our doctors use an integrative approach and Bioidentical Hormone Replacement (BHRT). Bioidentical hormones are plant-based and are biologically identical to your own natural hormones-resulting in fewer side effects.

Common Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance
*A loss of muscle mass followed by a sudden unexplained increase in body fat, particularly around the area of the abdomen is a common sign of hormone imbalance in women. Other body changes that occur with suboptimal hormone levels that can accentuate this change in woman’s physique include osteoporosis and loss of muscle tone. A woman’s musculoskeletal system is also affected by these changes, as it can lead to muscle atrophy, osteoporosis, and pain in the muscles and joints. Studies currently being done are suggesting that hormone imbalance is the leading cause of weight gain in women above the age of 35. Hormone levels in a woman should be evaluated when there is an increase in body fat and weight without an increase in caloric intake. Unfortunately, this change in a woman’s physical appearance is too often attributed to a natural aging process when in fact treatment with HRT can delay and even reverse these changes.
*Frequent waking and/or insomnia have been attributed to hormone disruptions in women. The reason for this is not well known, but it is suspected that these imbalances are causing signals to the brain neurotransmitters, which are important for restful sleep, to become unstable Although there are many causes of insomnia and unrestful sleep, hormone levels should be checked as a potential cause
A sudden drop in energy is a common complaint as a woman’s hormone levels drop. She may experience difficulty to do work or participate in activities that would normally be easy to do due to fatigue. Experiencing difficulty in getting out of bed in the morning, an increase need to take naps throughout the day, or have an overall feeling of being drained of energy are all possible signs that something is amiss. Normal daily activities don’t have to be a struggle. If you are experiencing energy levels throughout the day without any other explainable cause (such as adequate sleep or medical conditions) then hormone imbalance should be suspected as the culprit.
*Hormone imbalance can manifest as lack of motivation, depression and alternating feelings of sadness, happiness, or anger. Normal amounts of required hormones are essential in normal brain function and mood stabilization. When lacking, a woman can experience an increase in anxiety, irritability, sleep disturbances, sadness, anger, and depression as a result. Sadly, these symptoms are commonly misdiagnosed and treated with antipsychotic medications- when in fact HRT can treat these mood-based symptoms.
Another role of healthy hormones is to support hair production and maintenance. When imbalanced, women may experience thinning or patchy hair and in severe cases complete scalp baldness. Although not as obvious, an increase or decrease in body hair may also be seen
