Hormones are powerful messengers that influence how the body works physically, mentally and emotionally. Conditions associated with hormone imbalances are menopause, peri-menopause, hot flashes, depression,  anxiety, difficulty sleeping, mood changes, fatigue, PMS, PCOS and low libido.

When treating patients with hormone imbalances, the doctors at Natural Health Works use only natural hormones. Natural hormones refer to using hormones that are biologically identical to what your body makes. These bio-identical hormones tend to avoid the unwanted side effects commonly seen with synthetic hormones. The natural hormones that we use are:

  • Estrogen
  • Progesterone
  • Testosterone
  • Thyroid
  • DHEA
  • Cortisol
  • Pregnenolone

Estrogen deficiency results in:

  • Urogenital atrophy
  • Incontinence
  • Sagging skin and breasts
  • Increased skin wrinkles on face
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • Decreased libido secondary to vaginal atrophy

There are over 100 symptoms related to thyroid deficiency:

  • Weak
  • Cold
  • Tired / fatigued
  • Thin hair, skin, nails
  • Weight gain, increased body fat
  • Loss of energy and motivation
  • Loss of cognition and memory
  • Poor sense of well-being and depression
  • Menstrual irregularities
  • Poor bowel function, constipation

At Natural Health Works, we believe that the only way to replace hormones safely is to customize your therapy. We do this by measuring your baseline hormone levels. Once you’ve started taking your hormones we will follow-up to make sure the dose being prescribed is at optimal levels. Hormone replacement therapy is very individualized. For this reason, we use compounding pharmacies to provide you with a prescription that is just right for you. Hormones work like a symphony, with each hormone playing a part in the orchestra, which is you.
