Hormone Therapy

As we age, our bodies go through changes, many of which are due to hormonal imbalance. This imbalance can cause a variety of unwanted symptoms. Using hormones that your body recognizes as identical to the ones it produces, is a way to naturally replace these deficiencies, allowing you to feel normal again.

Progesterone Deficiency

Progestrone is a female hormone that, like estrogen, is essential to a woman's vitality. Prior to menopause it is necessary for the initiation and maintenance of pregnancy, and so much more. There are a number of places where progesterone is active outside the uterus. Progesterone receptors are found in the the brain, skin, bone and eyes. After menopause, progesterone is no longer produced in large amounts and levels decrease significantly.  Progesterone is an important hormone and should be replaced to establish a balanced hormonal flora.
