Natural Hormone Therapy Q & A

Total Health and Wellness: Center for Personalized Medicine

What is natural hormone therapy?

During and after menopause, your hormones change significantly. That can make you feel like a completely different person, causing insomnia, fogging your mind, shrinking your desire for sex, and more. Natural hormone therapy is designed to help you feel normal again, naturally.

All too many women suffer through their menopausal and postmenopausal symptoms, thinking they have to live their life with:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Decreased mental clarity
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Weight gain
  • Mood swings
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Trouble sleeping

These symptoms are all caused by your body’s reduced production of hormones after menopause. But don’t resign yourself to a life feeling uncomfortable in your body. By introducing natural hormone therapy, you can restore your hormone balance and feel like yourself again.

Women aren’t the only ones who can suffer from hormone imbalance. Total Health and Wellness: Center for Personalized Medicine offers testosterone pellets for both women and men.

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones, or natural hormones, are designed to safely replace the hormones your body no longer produces during and after menopause. They’re derived from plants like soy and yams. These man-made hormones are chemically identical to the ones your body produces and can be used to restore your balance of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can be administered in a number of ways, from pills and patches to creams and injections. Finding the right balance of hormones and the right way to deliver them will depend on your unique body. Dr. Roz will work with you, regularly examining your lab work to find the best balance to eliminate your symptoms.

How do I make my hormone replacement therapy most effective?

Your body works as a whole. While introducing natural hormone replacement can alleviate some of your symptoms, in order to most effectively restore your quality of life, Dr. Roz can work with you to develop a plan. By listening to your symptoms and using advanced hormone testing, she can help you implement nutritional changes along with natural hormone therapy to help you live your healthiest, most vibrant life.
