Hormone levels decrease as we age. Unfortunately, a small change in hormone levels can lead to major problems. Hormones are messengers that travel throughout the bloodstream, transmitting messages from glands to cells concerning development, growth, and energy.
When your hormones are in balance, your body can function at an optimal level. However, aging causes hormone levels to decline. Hormone replacement therapy, or HRT, can restore hormonal levels to optimal concentrations.
Some of the advantages of HRT include:
Bio-Identical Hormones are identical to the molecular formula of hormones created by your own body. The use of bio-identical hormones can increase the levels of hormones such as progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone to youthful levels.
Menopause sees the onset of declining hormones that can negatively impact your day-to-day life, as well as your overall feelings of well-being. Menopausal women often feel “out of sync” as their levels of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone decrease.
Male Menopause is an age-related “change of life” experienced by men. Men can suffer changing hormone levels and lowered testosterone levels that can lead to mental and physical changes.
Testosterone is responsible for muscle mass, libido, and energy level in both men and women. Restoring testosterone to proper levels can lead to a more healthy sex drive, higher energy levels, increased muscle mass, and better mental focus.
Thyroid Hormone levels will decrease with age, leading to metabolism and body temperature to lowers. This can contribute to depression and low energy. By implementing a hormone replacement therapy plan, these symptoms are easily and inexpensively counteracted.
Dr. Campos understands that each patient’s hormonal requirements are different, so he will carefully evaluate your need for any of these therapies through an in depth analysis and evaluation, review of symptoms, medical history and a series of diagnostic tests. Before prescribing hormones, it is necessary to determine if hormone replacement is right for you.
The first step is a consultation with Dr. Campos who you will be able to meet and will go over his philosophy, your expectations and his treatment goals. If you are ready to take the next step, we begin with fasting labwork to get a valid assessment of where your levels are. We call this the Evaluation Analysis and it consists of the following:

If your evaluation indicates that you would benefit from hormone therapy treatment or other treatment that needs to be monitored, you would begin the Treatment Program Phase, which is supervised and monitored by Dr. Campos throughout the year and can be renewed on a yearly basis.
Identifying deficiencies and prescribing appropriate hormones and supplements at proper levels requires careful supervision and on-going monitoring of your treatment. Your personalized plan includes a variety of specific paths to reach your ultimate goal of a balanced lifestyle in foundational areas such as hormone replacement therapy, nutrition, exercise, stress management, sleep, relationships and spirituality, as well as alternative and complementary therapies, and non-surgical cosmetic enhancements.
Our integrative approach includes a medical history and goals, lifestyle evaluation, biomarkers, skin analysis, physical exam and medication history. Based on this information, Dr. Campos then creates a unique anti-aging treatment plan based on your health history, goals, symptoms, and laboratory test results. The fee for the treatment phase is done on a year-by-year basis. Please call us to understand how the program works and can answer all your questions.
