Bioidentical Hormones for Women

For women to look and feel their best, their hormones need to be in balance  (estrogen, progesterone AND testosterone). Hormone imbalances can manifest starting as early as your mid 30s. Often symptoms associated with hormone imbalance like fatigue, weight gain, low libido, foggy memory are blamed on natural aging or menpoause. But when you restore your hormones to more youthful levels, you can dramatically improve your quality of life and vitality. Optimal hormone balance lead to improved mood and sleep, enhanced libido, increased energy, greater ability to cope with stress, clearer thinking, reduced body fat, decreased hot flashes and night sweats. It can also help prevent cardiovascular disease, stroke, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s dementia.

Unlike synthetic hormones, Bioidentical hormones match the molecular structures of the natural hormones in your body. BHRT is a safe, proven clinical therapy. During your consultation we will discuss your goals and preferences, and develop a plan. We look at complete blood and urine testing which includes extensive hormone panels.  Hormone dosing is then customized based on your values. I offer oral, transdermal cream or pellet therapy, or a combination of these based on individual needs and desires.
