Today more and more women are searching for answers and seeking healthy solutions for mid-life issues. As we age, hormone production decreases which accelerates the aging process.

Common Signs And Symptoms Of Menopause:

• Hot flashes • Night sweats • Insomnia • Vaginal dryness • Mood swings • Memory loss • Low libido • Fatigue • Weight gain At New Spring Integrative Medicine, we specialize in hormone balancing using Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) which can minimize your symptoms with few, if any, side effects. What are bio-identical hormones?  These are hormones made in compounding pharmacies, predominantly from yam, and are made to be functionally and chemically identical to what our own body produces. This is in contrast to synthetic hormones such as Premarin and Provera which have a very different biochemical structure and therefore been shown to have many long term and undesirable side effects. When providing hormone replacement, you must balance all the hormones, not just one or two.  Hormones work like a symphony and what affects one hormone, affects all other hormones. This includes addressing adrenal functioning such as cortisol, DHEA and pregnenolone, low thyroid as well as estrogen, progesterone and testosterone replacement. When necessary, growth hormone can also be effective. We can restore your hormones to more youthful levels and women who use BHRT often feel better, look younger, and have more energy.
