Female Hormones

Are you missing some hormones?  Do you feel out of balance?

Replacing or balancing hormones can help many women. Mood swings, irritability, breast soreness, swelling, migraine headaches, painful cramps, dryness and fatigue are not something you just have to put up with.

Low hormones can occur at different stages of life and may be the cause of PMS, perimenopausal hot flushes and night sweats as well as other symptoms in the postmenopausal state.  Correcting the deficiency or imbalance can make you feel better.

Measuring hormone level can help decide if you have a problem.  Estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid, and adrenal hormones can be checked with laboratory tests.  Taking just the right natural replacements customized to a woman’s particular needs confirms their importance when symptoms clear up.  Hormone replacement combined with good nutrition, restful sleep, healthy exercise and stress management can make a big difference.

We think that using the most natural form of hormone for replacement is the first choice.  “Bioidentical” refers to hormones derived from natural plant sources minimally modified to look exactly like the human hormone made by your ovary.  The replacement amount given is physiologic — the amount your body usually makes when functioning in a healthy manner.  We recommend the lowest dose necessary and for limited periods.
