What is Hormone Therapy?

Hormones, more specifically sex steroid hormones are responsible for what makes boys into men and girls into women. When they are working properly, life is grand and all is right with the world! When they are not working properly, it can be hell on earth (for that person and those around them!

How do hormones become imbalanced?

Dr DeCosmo finds that most hormone imbalances for men and women are not a fault with mother nature but a normal reaction to an abnormal situation. Hormone therapy looks to correct the imbalance and restore the most natural function possible. Hormone therapy may include replacing deficient hormones with bioidentical natural hormones but it can also involve the use of supplements, diet and exercise to balance the hormones.
