HRT in Kansas City

Follow Your HRT for Better Function in Kansas City

Beautiful pic of the front lobby of Regain where men and women first enter to receive HRT in Kansas City.

Days when you want to get a lot checked off that to-do list. Weekends that promise plenty of fun on a golf course, a pickleball tournament, dinner and dancing, or maybe hiking and biking. Weeks where work needs you to hyper-focus on a project, or get everything wrapped up before some much-deserved time off.

The problem? You just don’t feel up to any of it. From being tired constantly to brain fog and a general sense of pessimism, doing what you want to do—and what you need to do—seems like doing too much.

Hormone imbalance can be the culprit stealing your energy, your clear thinking, and your hope. Regain Functional Medicine + Aesthetics offers HRT in Kansas City to reclaim lost ground. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy brings balance back, helping you feel like yourself again so that you can live your best life.

Our team thrives on seeing patients rediscover how good it feels to feel good. That’s the functional medicine approach: healing from the inside out. Request a consultation, and let’s see if following your HRT makes the right kind of difference.

The Importance of Hormone Balance

Your hormones work as chemical messengers zipping around in your bloodstream, making sure your cells and organs do their business. The glands in your endocrine system secrete these hormones, along with fat cells which can secrete estrogen.

Hormones regulate many of your physiological processes, including:

  • Metabolism: How your body uses and stores energy from food.
  • Growth and Development: Development of tissues/organs, including bone and muscle.
  • Reproduction: Control over menstruation/ovulation/pregnancy and fertility.
  • Stress Response: Energy application, heart rate increase, and sharpened focus in times of danger.
  • Hydration: Control of fluid and electrolyte balances.
  • Homeostasis: Regulation of body temperature, blood sugar and pressure, and more.
  • Mood and Emotions: Control of mood, emotions, and social behavior.

Hormone Imbalance Indicators

Without sufficient hormones, cells don’t have instructions arriving so that they can function properly. Or, they might be receiving too much of a hormone, causing a cascade effect of hormone imbalance.

Either way, there are some telltale signs that you might need HRT in Kansas City for hormone imbalance:

  • Hot flashes
  • Irregular periods
  • Brain fog/declining mental acuity
  • Trouble sleeping/insomnia
  • Increased body fat
  • Decrease in lean muscle mass
  • Loss of libido
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Bone density loss/osteoporosis
  • Mood swings/irritability
  • Depression
  • Fatigue/low energy levels
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Menopause
  • Andropause
  • Skin oiliness/acne
  • Sensitive/stressed skin
  • Thinning hair
  • Diminished collagen production
  • And more

For example, both men and women come into Regain Functional Medicine + Aesthetics with complaints of midline weight gain, fatigue, and decreased libido. We frequently discover they’re suffering a hormone imbalance that’s robbing them of the function to support full health.

Have a Consultation

It’s important to request a consultation with your Regain provider to see if hormone imbalance could be behind your issues.

Our bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in Kansas City isn’t appropriate or effective for everyone. For this reason, our experts will:

  • Perform an overall health check.
  • Analyze your symptom severity.
  • Check for any issues that might stop you from having HRT.
  • Order a blood test if necessary.

With this information, we can determine if hormone replacement therapy is right for your situation. If the answer is yes, we will work with you to develop an individualized plan.

Our process for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy involves identifying the cause, creating the personalized therapy, and monitoring the results.

Diagnosis of Hormone Imbalance

The consultation for HRT in Kansas City provides confirmation of both hormonal imbalances and your candidacy for treatment. This isn’t a one-sided process. We’ll ask many questions about your symptoms as we look to find the root cause. We listen closely, repeating back the information to make sure you know you’ve been heard.

In this step, we also educate you on the hormones in play and make sure you understand the difference between HRT and BHRT.


We only use bioidentical hormones for HRT in Kansas City, and the same goes for testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). Bioidentical hormones are chemically the same as the body’s own natural hormones. They come from a plant steroid found in wild yams or soy, and bear all the chemical characteristics of naturally produced hormones.

Non-bioidentical pharmaceutical hormone replacement therapy delivers hormones that are not chemically the same as what our bodies recognize as natural. For example, estrogen can be derived from horses (i.e. Premarin) and the progesterones can be synthetic.

Because these versions don’t match the molecular structure of human hormones, they can act differently than the hormones they’re meant to replace. This can include ineffectiveness or unwanted side effects.

Your Best Shot Is a Shot

For your HRT in Kansas City, we prefer to introduce the bioidentical hormones to your body via weekly injections. The first month to 2 months, your Regain team will perform your weekly injection in-office. This way, we can monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your dosages.

After that, you’ll administer your shot each week at home via a prescription.

Injections Provide Adjustability and Accuracy

A weekly injection can be adjusted not only for your current situation, but also as your body’s hormones balance. You may need less of one hormone but more of another as cellular function alters with the arrival of these new instructions (hormones).

Pellets Work—But Not as Consistently

Hormone balance is exactly that: finding balance for better function. Though Regain can insert pellets for longer term delivery, there are pros and cons of hormone pellets.

Pellet Therapy Pros

  • For women, the pellets are very small.
  • You only need to have them inserted every 3 to 6 months.

Pellet Therapy Cons

  • For men, the pellets are large.
  • Dosage levels rise and fall depending on the point in the replacement cycle.

How Pellets Are Placed

The pellet insertion procedure requires in-office minor surgery to create the incisions and insert the pellet into the fat layer just below the skin. Your Regain medical professional places the pellets (up to 12 of them) in the hip or upper buttock region. Pellets require healing time, during which hard exercise is forbidden so that the pellets don’t become dislodged or—in worst-case scenarios—get ejected completely.

When the pellets are first placed, they all start to slowly dissolve, which spikes those hormone levels. Then, towards the end of their cycle, they all begin to taper off at the same time, causing a drop in those hormone levels. Your body spends a good deal of time addressing these varying balance states, which causes further physiological stresses.

They may seem like the “easy” way, but pellets for HRT in Kansas City don’t deliver best results consistently, so we usually don’t recommend them. Once placed, it will be 4 to 5 months before you can alter their dosages for better results.

However, if they’re the only option, pellet bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is better than nothing.

Oral HRT: A Last Resort

Simply put: we don’t want our patients to take their BHRT orally unless there’s absolutely no other way. Oral ingestion of hormones increases the risk of blood clots due to activation of the clotting system in the liver. This is why we choose to give our hormones intramuscularly. It reduces or eliminates this risk entirely.

The Best Type of BHRT Depends on You

The final decision over hormone replacement therapy is always yours. As our patient, you’re in control of your health destiny. We don’t accept insurance, so you won’t have strangers in some corporate office trying to tell you what you can and can’t do for your health.

If you want patches or even lotions/serums, we can find a way. Our team custom-formulates and creates your HRT in Kansas City based on you, not on some formula fed to the provider by a lab. The most important thing is that you get the medicine you need that creates a steady state for your hormone levels.

Length of Therapy

Your bioidentical hormone replacement therapy usually ends when you no longer need them. That could be in a few months, or after several years.

The benefit of your BHRT continues as long as you’re on the hormones and persists for several weeks after ceasing your injections. Unfortunately, the beneficial results are eventually lost if the therapy is not resumed. As long as your medical history has no contraindications, you can continue on hormones long term without increasing risk.

Welcome to Your Function Junction

HRT in Kansas City has one goal: to improve your function so that you can live your best life. Whether you’re in your 30s or your 60s, premenopausal or in the heat of it, or just not feeling like yourself the way you used to, our functional medicine approach focuses on addressing the root causes of illness and disease, rather than just treating symptoms.

Through expert consultative analysis and prognosis, delivered by medical professionals with extensive experience treating patients with health and aging concerns, they discover the underlying causes and treat those first. Once your system is functioning properly at optimal levels, then other issues can be addressed.

You can’t discover why a car isn’t running right if you only look at the windows. You have to understand the system and be able to diagnose the problems through examination and, in a patient’s case, lab work. We deliver results via measures that are proven effective by science and by years of satisfied patients.

Once your hormone balance is improved, we can restore balance and function to your body as a whole.
