Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapies are proven safe and effective.

Regardless of age, a woman’s hormones all work together like a symphony; if one part of the orchestra is not functioning properly, then the melody you produce is out of tune.

Over the last 100 years as we have doubled our life expectancy, the soft tissue glands which create our hormones are being forced to produce them longer than ever. Our increasingly stressful lives, worsening nutrition and lack of proper fitness combine to result in declining levels of hormones in our bodies.

The good news is that hormone losses and imbalances are correctable. Through the use of bioidentical hormones, women can not only be relieved of the symptoms, but also effectively protect themselves against osteoporosis and heart disease. And through supervised treatment, natural hormone replacement therapy can make women feel healthier, and younger than they have in years.

Symptoms of  Hormonal Imbalance

Even when only one unbalanced hormone is present, it may result in the following hormonal imbalance symptoms in women:

  • Hot Flashes & Night Sweats
  • PMS
  • Weight Gain
  • Mood Swings
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Endometriosis
  • Low Libido
  • Fibrosis
  • Vaginal Dryness
  • Foggy Memory

Menopause / Perimenopause

Menopause is the time in a woman’s life when the ovarian production of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone decline. The average age of menopause onset is fifty-one, plus or minus several years. Menopause is medically defined as the time in which a woman ceases to menstruate for the duration of 12 months. Although the definition properly describes the event, the process can begin up to 10 years earlier and is called perimenopause. Long before a woman’s menstruation stops, she will have already noticed a change.

These signs of menopause or early menopause and related conditions are also connected to your stress levels, poor nutrition, lack of exercise and the environmental toxins your body is exposed to on a daily basis.

There is no way to stop menopause. It’s part of the natural cycle of life, which everyone woman will go through. However, the way you deal with this normal process can greatly affect your quality of life. Natural bioidentical hormone therapy for menopause can help you deal with these symptoms, freeing you to enjoy this new stage of life.

If you experience persistent symptoms over time, you may be indicated for hormonal testing. Our simple hormonal tests will indicate if you are a candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement therapies. Don’t allow yourself to suffer from these symptoms any longer – take back control of your life!

During your initial consultation with Dr. Sonn he will go over the various concerns and symptoms you are suffering from in a manner that will make sense to you. He will explain in detail the various bio-feedback mechanisms that may help you understand why these symptoms are occurring. During this initial visit Dr. Sonn will determine whether you may be a candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement. If you are medically indicated, he will order a hormonal panel which may incorporate a number of various types of tests (saliva, blood spot, serum, or 24 hour urine) to determine the probable causes for your indicated health concerns and possibly some health risk issues you may not even become aware of.

In addition, during this time Dr. Sonn will perform a self- assessment of your behavioral habits, nutrition, and stress factors that may be contributing to your health conditions.

Our Primary Purpose:

The initial consultation is to help empower you with the knowledge that there are real answers to your health concerns. Answers are not always forthcoming from a pill bottle and real solutions come from lifestyle changes and in correcting the root of your problems and not mask the issue with anti-depressants and other prescribed drugs.

If indicated after testing and receiving your hormonal panel we will educate you with all of the various options available whether it is a “naturalpathic” type approach through natural supplements and lifestyle changes or through HRT. A full medical workup will then be administered and you will be part of the decision making process concerning your proposed treatment.
