HORMONE ASSESSMENTS/TREATMENT/ONGOING FOLLOW-UP
Hormones Helped Me!
In 2016 I started feeing the effects of peri-menopause, lack of energy (like zero), sex drive (gone), anger (lots of it), crying (lots of that too). I had this overwhelming sense that life as I previously knew it was over. I couldn't sleep, motivation to exercise was gone. I was seeing my doctor to find out what was wrong... no answers, with the exception of a diagnosis of depression/anxiety, only to be prescribed a medication that had side effects I didn't like! Then... I found Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). Wow, after a few months I was feeling so much better, and I thought do I really need these things. So I stopped, only to find the YES I did need these things (BHRT). I was so impressed with the effect that I had to learn more. Only to find that there is limited information on the benefits of these important hormones and even fewer professionals prescribing these. So, I decided to dive in!
Your Best Self at Every Age!
Knowledge is a Powerful Thing!
Not everyone's hormones are the same. A thorough assessment of all your hormones and body functions is an important starting point for any patient. Knowing your values will help us work together to address your symptoms and plan for longevity.
Hormone Replacement Therapy
As a Worldlink Medical Certified Hormone Prescriber, I work with you to identify the best treatment plan. Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is formulated to mimic the composition of your own hormones. Structurally BHRT looks like the same hormones that you have been making naturally for years. But stress, age and a host of other factors contribute to the loss of these natural homrones.
A personalized/professional approach
You will always have follow-up with Tammy, your BHRT prescriber. She will evaluate your response to the hormones prescribed and you will work together to ensure that all levels are optimized...
fter an extremely stressful year, then coming off antidepressants and anti anxiety medication, I found myself tired, anxious, overweight, had a sporadic and heavy menstruated cycle and had significant trouble sleeping. Tammy suggested we do a blood test to determine if she could recommend some hormones to help me feel better.
During our consult Tammy was thorough about my health history and current health issues and recommended some hormones to help me feel better. I started feeling better within the first few weeks and now several months in I have so much energy, enough to workout regularly, work my demanding job and be a busy single mom! My anxiety has improved immensely, I’ve lost weight, my menstrual cycle is regular and lighter and I sleep 8 hours a night regularly. To put it lightly, I feel fantastic in comparison to how I felt prior to started HRT with Tammy. I’m so thankful I did!
