Hormone Therapy In the News
Women Approaching Menopause
“After one day on bio-identical estrogen, I felt the veil lift. After three days, the sky was bluer, my brain was no longer fuzzy, my memory was sharper. I was literally singing and had a skip in my step.” – Oprah
Decreasing Estrogen levels lead to …
- Mental clarity described by patients as Foggy Mind
- Breast fullness & volume
- Osteoporosis risk
- Heart attacks
- Hot flashes
- Snappy behavior
- Alzheimer’s risk
Thyroid hormones also decline, not to the point of illness but enough to cause fatigue, sluggishness and weight gain.
Men and Andropause
Men experience more subtle affects which creep up over 20 years causing Andropause, also known as Male Menopause. Testosterone begins to decline in the 30’s.
- Sexual arousal
- Morning erections
- Erection stamina
- Lean muscle mass
- Skin elasticity
- What is referred to as Spark in Life
- Cardiac risks
- Weight gain
- Depressed mood
Our Hormone Symphony
When in our prime, our hormones work together like a well orchestrated symphony. When some of these hormones are not optimized, the other hormones don’t function as well, thus affecting our well being.
Additional factors that compound these issues:
- Vitamin & Mineral deficiencies
- Poor diets
- Lack of activity
- Environmental exposures

Facing the Facts

- waning energy
- diminished libido
- increase in abdominal fat
- decline in visual acuity
- mood swings
- reduction in skin tone and elasticity
- memory lapses
- weakened bone density
- decreased flexibility

Optimized hormone levels create balance within the body, leading to a healthier, happier you!
