Both men and women over the age of 35 are often candidates for Hormone Replacement Therapy. As we age hormone levels decline significantly each year, causing symptoms such as low libido, decreased energy, unexplained weight gain, difficulty losing weight, additional weight in the mid-section, anxiety, depression, irritability and even a lowered sense of well-being.

InShapeMD’s anti-aging programs restore proper hormone levels through the use of hormones that are identical in structure to those naturally produced in the body….

”Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy BHRT”

We offer only hormones compounded according to                   the highest industry standards,                                                                 using the best quality botanical ingredients available.           Derived from soy and other plant based ingredients, they are specially formulated to strictly replicate human hormones.       By balancing hormones with InShapeMD’s MyT for Men or MyT for Women you can restore your vitality and youth.

Find Your Fountain of Youth!
