What are the symptoms of hormone depletion?
Many people experience symptoms of hormone depletion as they age. While your body naturally decreases hormone production over time, this transition can be intensely uncomfortable in both women and men.
Some symptoms that women may experience with hormone depletion include hot flashes, night sweats, forgetfulness, vaginal dryness, and decreased libido.
Some symptoms that men commonly experience with hormone depletion include decreased motivation, inability to focus, muscle loss, poor energy levels, and erectile dysfunction.
Both men and women may also experience mood swings, depression, headaches, insomnia, and weight gain.
These symptoms may start in your 40s or 50s, although some people experience the symptoms of hormone depletion as early as their 20s or 30s.
What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a treatment that replaces your hormones using naturally sourced nonsynthetic hormones.
The hormones are an exact molecular copy of those that your body makes naturally, so your body accepts and processes the bioidentical hormones just as if you made them within your own body.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is different from synthetic hormone therapy because synthetic hormones come from animal sources, such as horse urine. It’s more difficult for your body to use synthetic hormones, and they might cause serious side effects long term.
How can I start bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?
The first step is comprehensive lab testing at Align Body & Wellness. Your provider reviews your blood panel carefully to determine exactly what you need to address your symptoms and optimize your individual hormone levels. Then they customize a bioidentical hormone replacement therapy plan for you.
Your bioidentical hormone replacement plan may include implantable pellet therapy, topical creams, patches, or tablets based on what’s most convenient and comfortable for your lifestyle and treatment goals.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy at Align Body & Wellness goes beyond just replacing your missing hormones. Your provider helps you to make lifestyle changes and recommends effective strategies to help you achieve optimal health.
For example, medical-grade supplements or intravenous (IV) therapy can give you amazing results using all-natural substances.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can improve your mood, sleep, sex life, appearance, and even your outlook on life. To learn more, call Align Body & Wellness or click the online scheduling link.

Micronutrient testing measures 31 specific micronutrients—vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants and metabolites—and how they affect cellular function in a person. If someone is deficient in a particular nutrient, the MNT will uncover this deficiency so that it can be effectively treated, thus facilitating real prevention. Not only will correcting intracellular deficiencies slow aging and degenerative disease progression, but it can also prevent as well as repair cellular dysfunction, and by extension disease.
Food Sensitivity Testing
ALCAT food sensitivity testing is a type of blood test that can help identify which foods may be causing an immune response in your body. Unlike traditional allergy testing, which only looks for IgE antibodies, ALCAT testing measures both IgE and IgG antibodies to provide a more comprehensive understanding of your body’s immune response to foods.

Our providers at Align Body & Wellness will discuss your health needs and current goals with you in detail so they can customize an infusion cocktail best for you.

What is IV therapy?
IV therapy is an on-site treatment in which you receive a personalized cocktail of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients through a vein in your arm or hand.
With IV therapy, you get an instant dose of whatever you need, directly into your blood, without waiting for it to move through your digestive system.
When might I need IV therapy?
IV therapy has a wide range of applications, including:
- Rapid hydration
- Anti-aging and skin care support
- Energy boost
- Immunity boost
- Hangover recovery
- Jet-lag recovery
- Flu recovery
- Enhanced mental focus
- Healing support
If you have nutrient deficiencies, IV therapy can also help by giving you the initial large dose of nutrients you need to support better health.
IV therapy can also help to ease the symptoms of conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, migraine headaches, and thyroid disorders.
Is IV therapy better than supplements?
IV therapy and high-quality supplements can both play an important role in supporting your whole-body health. In general, IV therapy provides immediate effects when you need them the most, for example when you’re sick or run down.
Supplements work over time to provide long-term health and wellness support. Align Body & Wellness offers pharmaceutical-grade supplements from Ortho Molecular Products® and NUTRAscriptives® to support your health goals.
How does the IV therapy process work?
After you discuss your health needs with your provider, they create a personalized blend of IV fluids. They insert a slim catheter into your arm or hand vein, and the IV fluids gradually drip directly into your blood over the next 30-60 minutes.
IV therapy doesn’t hurt, although your hand or arm might feel a little cold at the infusion site. You can take a quick nap, read, listen to music, or whatever you like during the infusion, so the time can be as productive or restful as you like.
When does an IV infusion take effect?
An IV infusion takes effect instantly. You may feel tired or worn out before your infusion but leave Align Body & Wellness feeling refreshed and renewed.
In addition to IV therapy and supplements, Align Body & Wellness also offers vitamin injections such as B-12 shots. Vitamin injections are a good way to get a dose of specific vitamins quickly, so they can support specific health goals. For example, B-12 shots can help with weight loss and energy levels.
We also offer a wide variety of peptides, give us a call or setup and appointment to discuss your options.

Low energy, fatigue, and a slow metabolism may be key indicators that you may benefit from vitamin injections. At Align Body & Wellness, Align Body & Wellness and the team provide vitamin injections to boost your energy, help you lose weight, and improve your well-being and overall quality of daily life. To learn more about how customized vitamin injections can help you, call the Tulsa, Oklahoma, office or book your appointment online today.
What are vitamin injections?
Vitamins play a vital role in how your body feels and functions each day. Most importantly, they help you produce healthy red blood cells to carry oxygen throughout your body and help your brain and nervous system work properly. They also impact your energy and mood.
With vitamin injections, your body absorbs 100% of all the nutrients you need.
What type of vitamin injections are offered?
At Align Body & Wellness, the team offers three types of vitamin injections: lipo-boost injections, B12 injections, and a combination of both.
Also known as skinny shots or methionine inositol choline (MIC) injections, lipo-boost promotes weight loss.
Here’s how the injection works: methionine breaks down the sugar and carbohydrates you use for energy; inositol converts your food into energy; and choline converts your fat to energy and improves your muscle recovery time.
Lipo-boost also contains:
- L-carnitine (helps turn fat into energy)
- Thiamine B1 (helps generate energy from nutrients)
- Riboflavin B2 (helps fight free radicals and the damage they cause)
- B6 (help turns food into energy, helps create neurotransmitters)
The team uses this injection in combination with others to boost your energy, burn stored fat, and enhance your weight loss.
Vitamin deficiencies can happen to anyone, so don’t feel ashamed if you’re diagnosed with one every once in a while. They’re especially common in the elderly, people with dietary restrictions, and people who smoke or drink alcohol consistently.
Align Body & Wellness offers micronutrient testing that will let you know if you have a certain condition or medication that puts you at a higher risk of a vitamin deficiency.
What do B12 injections do?
B12 can have synthetic contents, but at Align Body & Wellness, the team only provides natural methylated B12. This shot gives you energy and treats other conditions, such as depression, fatigue, nerve damage, and even memory loss.
B12 can also be used in combination with a lipo-boost injection for a powerful surge of nutrients for your body.
What is the process for getting vitamin injections?
When you come in for a vitamin injection, your provider at Align Body & Wellness injects the specific vitamin under the skin superficially.
Getting vitamins injections are a more effective way to absorb the necessary nutrients. When you take in vitamins through your diet or supplements, they often break down in your digestive tract before your body has the chance to absorb them. Vitamin injections bypass the digestive process, ensuring you receive the nutrients your body needs to thrive.
At Align Body & Wellness, the team also offers IV therapy if you’d like to receive vitamins through an IV in your arm as an alternative.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a powerful natural treatment that can improve your joint regeneration, hair rejuvenation, facial rejuvenation, and intimacy renewal. At Align Body & Wellness, the team use PRP therapy as part of a personalized treatment plan based upon your needs. To learn more about how PRP can help you, call the Tulsa, Oklahoma, office or book your appointment online today.
What is PRP?
PRP is a substance containing a high level of platelets from your own blood. Platelets have enormous restorative powers because they release growth factors, the substances that help your body heal after an injury.
With PRP injections, a high concentration of platelets is strategically placed directly at the site where you need those rejuvenating powers. That immediately initiates your body’s injury response, magnified up to 10 times due to the high platelet concentration.
In this way, PRP treatments can give you rapid results using your body’s own regenerative platelets.
How is PRP made?
The PRP process starts with a blood draw. The blood usually comes from your arm, and the process is the same as blood draws for lab testing. Your blood is then processed in a centrifuge, a piece of high-tech equipment that spins the blood very rapidly.
The centrifuge separates your blood, leaving it in layers. The PRP (the top layers) is then drawn into a syringe and the red blood cells at the bottom of the tube are discarded.
What are the benefits of PRP injections?
These PRP shots require no chemicals or drugs. PRP contains an enormous supply of growth factors. These regenerative proteins stimulate new blood vessel growth and new tissue growth exactly where you need it.
How do PRP injections promote joint health?
If you have damaged or arthritic joints, PRP injections can serve as a valuable resource. These injections can ease pain and inflammation in the affected areas, while also accelerating the healing process.
How do PRP injections promote hair rejuvenation?
PRP is also used for hair growth for men and women including eyebrow growth. With a series of injections every 4 weeks for the first four months then bi-yearly for maintenance. There are multiple studies to show PRP and hair growth benefits. PRP has your own growth factors and improved blood supply to the hair follicle and increases thickness to the hair shafts improving the quality and thickness of hair.
How is PRP used for facial rejuvenation?
PRP can also be used to restore volume loss for facial rejuvenation. Please see our “Injectables and Fillers” page under Aesthetics.

Allograft therapy uses sterile amniotic cellular tissue, which are the “building blocks” of your body, to help promote the growth of healthy new cells and tissues. Shannon Kibble, APRN, CNP, and the team at Align Body & Wellness in Tulsa, Oklahoma, use allograft therapy to repair tissues that are too damaged to heal on their own. Stem cells can stimulate the formation of cartilage, tendon, ligaments, bone, and fibrous connective tissues. To learn more about allograft therapy and how you can benefit from this treatment, call Align Body & Wellness today or book an appointment online.
What is allograft therapy?
Allograft therapy uses sterile amniotic cellular tissue to promote healthy tissue growth. Stem cells are unique because they can change into any other kind of cell that your body might need to repair itself.
When you suffer an injury, your blood carries stem cells to the area to help repair the damage. The stem cells, along with growth factors and proteins, heal and regenerate the injured tissues; however, there aren’t always enough stem cells available for optimal repair.
Allograft therapy is a way of getting a concentrated dose of stem cells to damaged tissues and increasing cell regeneration.
Where do the substances used in allograft therapy come from?
The substances used in allograft therapy come from healthy women undergoing cesarean sections who donate the amniotic fluid and placenta for allograft therapy. The stem cells, growth factors, collagen, and proteins in allograft therapy come from amniotic fluid and placental tissue.
Amniotic fluid stem cells don’t show signs of aging. Furthermore, they divide more quickly and have a longer stability rate. Since these stem cells come from the fluid and tissues that surround the baby rather than the fetus itself, allograft therapy doesn’t present any ethical issues.
What can allograft therapy treat?
Allograft therapy can assist in the treatment of many types of health problems, including joint pain and other kinds of musculoskeletal disorders. Because stem cells are able to transform into virtually any other type of cell, they can regenerate specific tissues, such as bone, cartilage, ligaments, and skin.
The new tissue replaces the damaged areas, reducing inflammation and pain and triggering a healing process that your body can’t accomplish on its own.
Injuries and conditions commonly treated by regenerative therapy procedures include:
- Golfer’s Elbow
- Osteoarthritis of the Knee, Hip & Shoulder
- Tennis Elbow
- Joint Injuries
- Ligament, Cartilage, & Tendon Injuries
