Joshua Host | Founder & CEO
Thrivelab was founded by Joshua Host after a serious biking accident showed the healing power of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Long after he had physically healed, Joshua battled significant cognition issues. Even basic math was a struggle. Numerous brain specialists and prescription drug regimens didn’t help. Then Joshua read an article published by Harvard Medical School about the treatment of traumatic brain injuries with BHRT. After just 30 days, he felt like his old self.
Joshua became fascinated with BHRT and soon realized there’s a hormone imbalance epidemic underway caused by environmental toxins, chronic stress, diet and current lifestyles. To make hormone replacement therapy and optimization personalized, accessible, affordable and convenient for both men and women, Joshua founded Thrivelab in 2020.
Since then, Thrivelab has built an experienced medical team of board-certified providers who follow a proven process supported by evidence-based treatment and testing protocols. The result: groundbreaking hormone and testosterone balancing programs and natural products for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy that can alleviate age-related symptoms to restore youthful vitality.
