hormone replacement therapy (HRT)

Hormone replacement therapy for menopause symptoms has been around for decades. Despite many women rejecting HRT after news of its health risks, we think it’s still one of the most over-prescribed drugs in America.

The controversy over HRT diverts us from the basic question: is there a more natural alternative that is still effective? We think the answer to that question is yes.

But make no mistake: a small percentage of women need hormone replacement therapy. You may be one of those women, especially if you have had a hysterectomy before menopause.

But the idea of “replacing” women’s hormones that are naturally supposed to decline anyway will continue to be controversial. HRT was oversold for years as a kind of anti-aging miracle. We know better today.

Find out about the basics about HRT and find out when hormone supplementation can be effective. Understand the best way to get off HRT without a rebound in symptoms. And if you need to stay on HRT, we’ll help you understand the different options, including bioidentical hormones.

If you are motivated to try the natural approach, we offer solutions that work with your body to restore balance to your changing hormones. It’s a foundational approach to good health that works for most women.
