Hormone Replacement Therapy
Many women suffer from hormone imbalances at various stages of their reproductive lifespan, but especially during the menopausal transition. Our naturopathic doctors offer a wide array of hormone replacement options including customized compounding of oral, transdermal and vaginal medications. An individualized approach to hormone replacement means choosing the right hormone, at the right dose, the right route of delivery for each unique person we meet. We use bio identical hormones to ensure the safest and most effective therapy possible.
Hormone replacement is an effective treatment for:
- Menopausal symptoms such as night sweats, hot flashes, depression or anxiety
- Heavy or irregular periods
- Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
- Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD)
- Vaginal dryness
- Vaginal pain
- Pain with intercourse
- Postpartum vaginal changes
- Migraines and Headaches
Our understanding and use of hormones isn’t what it used to be 20 years ago. Our naturopathic doctors are highly trained to help you navigate this seemingly complex world of hormones with greater ease. We can walk you through the common myths and misconceptions of HRT so that you are fully informed about the real benefits and often low to no risks of using it. We believe it’s important for women to know that they have tried tested and true options to help them through times of hormonal change.
