Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormone Replacement Therapy Peachtree City: HealthChoice Chiropractic
As you begin to age, starting at age 25 for women 30 for men, the hormones start to decrease. While this is a natural process, it can lead to many unwanted systems which can ultimately make getting older physically draining. When you think of draining, it can be symptoms such as decreased sex drive, depression and fatigue, brain fog, unexplainable weight gain despite exercising, and much more. Symptoms vary in both men and women; however, they are caused by the same thing, decreased hormones.
In women, these hormones can be estrogen, progesterone, and even testosterone. For women, if these hormones aren’t regulated, it can increase the risk of osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, low libido, depression, insomnia, and brain fog, hot flashes, and menstrual irregularities.
In men, testosterone is naturally produced in the body to preserve sex drive, energy levels, mood, and muscle strength. However, if not regulated, can prove detrimental to a happy life.
So you may be wondering, what can I do to prevent this from happening to me?
Well, we have an answer. The answer is hormone replacement therapy (HRT). HRT serves as a way to regulate all hormones that could be causing the symptoms. That includes the thyroid as well. Many of the symptoms associated with deficiencies in testosterone, estrogen, or progesterone are often similar to those of hypothyroidism. It is necessary to correct delays in function in the thyroid as well, to make you more optimal.
Hormone therapy can treat:
- Weight Gain
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Skin Changes
- Low Sex Drive
- Muscle Loss
- Memory Loss
- Hair Loss
- Hot Flashes
- Vaginal Dryness
- Weak Bones
- Mood Changes
- Night Sweats
- Brain Fog
The term that’s described by the symptoms listed above, related to low testosterone, is called hypogonadism. Hypogonadism is the inability of testosterone to be produced and therefore, function.
Treatments we off include Bioidentical hormone replacement (pellets) as well as synthetic (injectable) hormone replacement.
What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Natural hormones, such as estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone, are produced in various glands throughout the body. These hormones regulate an enormous range of body functions. When our glands under or over produce hormones, we begin to experience symptoms like those listed above.
Bioidentical hormones are hormones derived from plants. They are chemically identical to those the human body. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) uses these hormones to help address symptoms related to hormonal imbalance. BHRT most often seeks to increase or balance the hormones estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and adrenal hormones.
Treatment includes a comprehensive review of a patient’s current hormone levels, healthy history, and needs. According to this detailed information, a doctor will prescribe a customized treatment plan. The length of treatment also depends on your individual needs and how you are feeling – some people may require hormone therapy indefinitely while others many only need hormones until their symptoms have subsided
Not only do we fix your hormone problems and treat symptoms, but we will also make sure you are taking the right supplements all to make you look and feel your best.

My name is Lequawn James. I’m a nurse practitioner in both mental health and addiction medicine, as well as orthopedics and sports medicine. Although these practices are on different realms of the healthcare spectrum, I find both very rewarding in their own way. In both, I have the unique opportunity to give patients a second chance at life through mental, spiritual, physical, and emotional health rebuilding. On the orthopedic side, I encounter many patients who have spent years in pain without results from various surgeries and use of painkillers. Through naturopathic and homeopathic treatments, I am given the opportunity to help them relieve pain, and increase their activity level and function without the use of countless narcotics and surgery. I provide an alternative answer without significant downtime. My office is not just a place where we specialize in treating pain. I also treat patients’ abnormal hormones and the various symptoms that develop as a result of these abnormalities, through the use of the Biote method (pellet insertion). I do a multitude of treatments with Platelet rich plasma not only for joint pain, tendon and ligament tears, but additionally for skin rejuvenation through vampire-facials, hair restoration or those who suffer form hair-loss, as well as botox and fillers. In my practice I want to treat the whole patient, not just one complaint.
I am certified by the American Board of Nurse Practitioners, Biote certified to implement pellets for hormone replacement therapy and thyroid treatments as well as insertion of Botox and fillers
Before I became a nurse practitioner, I spent nearly 8 years working in the emergency department and intensive care unit as a nurse where I saw and treated everything you can name. I attribute all of my skills of today to the many years in the trenches as a nurse.
Before becoming a nurse, I played four years of College football where I was an All-Conference, All-American Football player. Now my hobbies include working out, coming up with macro-friendly meals for patients and friends to try, traveling, and playing on a competitive flag football travel team.
