Bio-identical Hormone ReplacementSmaller Font  Larger Font

Many women ask me about natural hormone replacement. They may be having problems with hot flashes, heart palpitations, night sweats, mood swings, irritability, vaginal dryness, and memory loss. I always first suggest that they do testing of their hormones, either on blood, or saliva (from mouth), to check where their hormones are. I do this in my office. Then, depending on their needs, I put them on natural progesterone, and/or natural estrogen. Since each individual is different the dosing will vary between each person. I will also suggest Vit. E and Fish Oil as well, as these supplements are helpful in menopause. I will also address any issues with the liver; as the liver is responsible for filtering and deconjugating all hormones. If the liver is congested there are more issues with menopause. I will also treat the emotional and psychological impact of menopause, and prescribe a homeopathic remedy, which will help the person cope with the sudden change menopause can have on your body - as it effects other glands in the body, as well, including glucose metabolism. If there is stress, I also treat higher than normal cortisol levels, which are produced by the adrenal glands in stress, which can cause weight gain, and water retention.
