Dr. Kostrzewski has HRT expertise in all of the following areas:
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a medical treatment that involves the supplementation or replacement of hormones in the body. Naturopathic doctors are some of the foremost experts on this topic. This therapy can help treat various hormonal imbalances and conditions, such as endocrine disorders, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, PCOS, menopause, perimenopause, pregnancy, preconception, infertility, mensuration, Amenorrhea, menstrual irregularities, hormones for men, testosterone, and autoimmune diseases.
Endocrine disorders affect the endocrine system, which is responsible for producing and regulating hormones. HRT can be used to supplement or replace deficient or imbalanced hormones, such as cortisol replacement therapy for adrenal insufficiency.
Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone. HRT can be used to supplement thyroid hormone, regulating metabolism and other bodily functions.
Hyperthyroidism, on the other hand, happens when the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone. HRT can be used to regulate thyroid hormone levels, reducing symptoms like weight loss, rapid heartbeat, and anxiety.
PCOS is a hormonal disorder that affects women of reproductive age. HRT can be used to regulate hormones in women with PCOS, improving symptoms such as irregular periods, infertility, and excess hair growth.
Menopause is the natural decline in reproductive hormones in women as they age. HRT can be used to supplement declining hormone levels, reducing symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness.
Perimenopause is the transition period leading up to menopause when hormone levels begin to fluctuate. HRT can be used to regulate hormones during perimenopause, reducing symptoms such as mood swings, irregular periods, and hot flashes.
HRT may be used prior to and during pregnancy to support fetal development and improve fertility in women with hormonal imbalances or infertility.
In men, HRT can supplement testosterone levels, improving libido, energy levels, and other symptoms of low testosterone.
Autoimmune diseases affect the immune system, leading to hormonal imbalances and other complications. HRT can be used to regulate hormones in people with autoimmune diseases, reducing symptoms and improving overall health.
