What Is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormones are chemical messengers secreted directly into the blood and are essential for your health and life that contribute to growth, development, metabolism, reproduction, and sexual health. 

As you age, the hormones in your body begin to deplete which can lead to aging and several other symptoms. Daniel Moghadam M.D. is a regenerative medicine specialist who masters the skill of biohacking and hormone replacement therapy for men and women to optimize their hormone levels. 

What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a medical procedure that can help balance the hormone levels in your body. There are several hormones released in your body that perform specific bodily functions. An imbalance in any hormone would negatively impact the particular organ or body system causing varying symptoms. 

Hormones that are replaced when insufficient include:

  • Estrogen
  • Progesterone
  • Thyroid hormones
  • Adrenal hormones 

What Makes You an Ideal Candidate For Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Your doctor will review your medical history, evaluate your symptoms, and run a few blood tests to check your hormone levels. This helps to determine if you need hormone replacement therapy. 

Hormone imbalance can cause a series of symptoms which include:

  • Obesity (weight gain)
  • Muscle loss (atrophy)
  • Fatigue
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Loss of libido
  • Cognitive decline
  • Lack of motivation
  • Sleeping disturbances
  • Erectile dysfunction

What to Expect During Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Your doctor will determine what hormones need to be replaced based on the blood test reports. Hormone replacement therapy is usually customized to meet your hormonal needs. 

Your depleted hormones may be replaced in the form of pills, shots, lotions, or pellets. You may notice an improvement in your symptoms within a week but may require follow-up checkups to monitor your symptoms and hormone balance. The levels can be adjusted as and when required with repeat therapy. 

What is Biohacking?

Biohacking is an advanced therapy that helps to enhance your physical and mental well-being. Most often your specialist uses peptide supplements for biohacking. These are short chains of amino acids that play a crucial role in the normal physiological process of aging. Biohacking in combination with hormone replacement therapy can help make you look younger than your age. 


It is essential to maintain the hormone levels for optimal functioning of your body system. Any imbalance can lead to aging and several other symptoms. Thankfully, this can be overcome by modern and innovative methods like hormone replacement therapy and biohacking. Because everyone deserves to look young with enhanced physical and mental health.
