Natural & Bioidentical
Women are seeking a more natural approach to restoring hormonal balance without the risk of cancer and serious side effects. We offer comprehensive testing for female hormones as well as pituitary, thyroid and adrenal hormones. For treatment, we usually start with supplementation and plant medicine to bring about balance. If additional intervention is needed, we move on to bioidentical hormone therapy.
These are hormones that are chemically identical to the hormones your body produces so are safer and have fewer side effects. Natural estrogens and progesterone can often help perimenopausal, menopausal and post-menopausal women or women who have undergone a hysterectomy with hot flashes, insomnia, vaginal dryness and mood swings. Natural hormones have the added benefit of protecting the heart and bones.
The hormones we prescribe are non-synthetic; they come from natural plant and animal sources which are minimally processed. We also work with compounding pharmacies to customize hormones for your individual needs.
