Body Shapes

Body Shapes for both men and women can determine much about ourselves.

Estrogen has  significant impact on both male a female Body Shapes. They are produced in both men and women, but their levels are significantly higher in women, especially in those of reproductive age. 
While there are numerous reasons for these different body Body Shapes, In this post we are going to focus on some of the contributing factors to different Body Shapes. We are not promoting that everyone needs similar Body Shapes, We want to focus on what Body Shapes mean to your specific health.

Let’s start with the different Body Shapes.

What is the “perfect Body Shape”?

While it’s estimated that only 2% of people have ideal Body Shapes, thankfully beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The only time we should be concerned is when Body Shapes becomes a medical concern or weight loss issue. This is what we will be focusing on. As we stated in the previous paragraph, estrogen levels and Hormone levels can play a BIG part in Body Shapes. Balancing your hormones with Hormone Therapy can provide you not only with benefits that diet alone cannot, Hormone Therapy can help many women with a myriad of health concerns.


While our society may consider this one of the best Body Shapes, Many people try to obtain this shape by dangerous means or “fad diets” . If this is your “ideal shape”, we have safe, medically proven ways to asses and create a plan designed specifically for you.
