Natural Prescription Hormone Replacement for Endocrine Imbalances
Natural (biologically-identical) hormone therapy involves restoring
hormones that are “natural” to the human body. Our philosophy
is to supplement only with natural hormones, and only in the dose necessary
to restore hormones to their normal or optimal levels to achieve and
maintain hormone balance.
Hormone dysfunctions can be subclinical in nature. Subclinical means
an illness that stays below the surface of clinical detection. Traditional
blood tests may appear normal and not uncover your hormone dysfunction.
Although low hormone dysfunctions are the most common, hormone illnesses
can be caused by excess hormones as well. Consultation with a knowledgeable
doctor will be necessary to start you on your healing process.
Our clinic treats hormone disorders based on individualized programs
that may include natural hormone replacement, herbal and homeopathic
protocols, acupuncture, nutrition, allergy and heavy metal elimination,
energetic balancing, and detoxification.
Hormone Therapy is used to treat the following:
PREMENSTUAL SYNDROME (PMS)
PREMENSTRUAL SYNDROME (PMS)
PMS is estimated to affect close to half of all women in their reproductive
years. There seems to be some controversy on what causes PMS, but some
theories include poor nutrition, low levels of progesterone and/ or
estrogens, and thyroid/adrenal disease. Some of the most common symptoms
• Water retention
• Breast tenderness
• Mood changes
PMS diagnosis may be differentiated from other medical imbalances by
the use of a menstrual diary, which would correlate symptoms with the
menstrual cycle. Dr Jace will take the necessary medical history, exams
and tests to rule out such diseases as endometriosis, cysts and dysmenorrhea.
For treating PMS, there may be a combination of solutions used that
best fits your unique situation, such as natural hormone therapy, herbal
programs, acupuncture and changes in diet and lifestyle.
As women approach their late 40’s to early 50’s, menopause
can become a vital healthcare issue. Menopause means the last menstrual
period. Symptoms of perimenopause, the period prior to menopause, can
begin as early as 35 yrs of age. Some of the symptoms that women experience
• Hot flashes
• Night sweats
• Vaginal dryness
• Mood changes
When perimenopause begins, the ovaries decrease the production of estrogen
and progesterone causing irregular menstrual cycles. Eventually ovulation
and menstruation stops and the production of estrogens and progesterone
decline dramatically. In entering this transition of life, treatment
may vary greatly. Options may include balanced diet, exercising, use
of herbs, and possible “natural hormone” therapy.
Andropause or “Male Menopause”, is the decline of male hormonal
function, which affects all men eventually. Changes typically begin
after the age of 40: however, men can also experience hormonal changes
sooner. The male hormones are called androgens, and include the most
dominant hormone, testosterone, which is responsible for the structure
of all body proteins. Some symptoms men may experience while going through
• Decline in sexual function
• Decrease in muscle strength
• Loss of bone mass
• Aging of the face and neck
• Loss of hair on arms and legs
• Circulatory loss of major blood vessels
Treatment of andropause may vary from person to person and may include
an exercise program, healthy eating, herbal and nutritional support
and natural hormone therapy.
Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid is under active.
There are various symptoms of low thyroid function with the most common
• Dry skin
• Weight gain
• Cold hands and feet
• Low basal temperature
The treatment may include bovine thyroid, “tailor” made
T-3 and T4 therapy, herbal and homeopathic remedies, acupuncture and
changes in diet and lifestyle.
Hypoadrenalism is low production of hormones from the adrenal glands
or an imbalance among these hormones. The hormones primarily produced
by the adrenal glands that cause dysfunction are cortisol, DHEA, and
aldosterone. Some causes of hypoadrenalism may be immune system damage
to the adrenal gland, physical and emotional stress, or insufficient
amount of stimulation by pituitary and hypothalamic hormones. There
are many symptoms associated with hypoadrenalism with the common ones
• Nervousness and irritability
• Salt and sweet craving
• Inability to concentrate
Treatment includes ruling out other illnesses, then treating with natural
hormones, herbal therapy, homeopathic protocols, and nutrition.
After a birth of a child, postpartum depression (PPD) can occur. PPD
is characterized by frequent teariness or more extreme feelings of being
unable to cope, rage or the mother’s fear that she may hurt herself
or her baby. Tense feelings can occur anytime within the first year
following childbirth. PPD has different levels of severity ranging from
the “baby blues” to psychosis. In the most severe case of
PPD psychosis, mothers can experience extreme rage, severe depression,
Infertility is the inability to conceive a child and could be due to
many different factors. One cause of infertility is luteal phase defect.
This is inadequate progesterone production in the luteal phase of the
cycle. Progesterone prepares the uterine wall for the implantation of
a fertilized egg and supports the egg throughout a full-term pregnancy.
Research indicates that “natural progesterone” with optimum
thyroid and adrenal function help women to conceive and carry a full-term
pregnancy. Esp. when progesterone is low, there may be inadequate support
for the fertilized egg and that can cause miscarriages.
Endometriosis is a condition where the endometrial tissue normally found
inside the uterus has gone outside the uterus. These cells then implant
themselves onto other organs in the pelvis, where they grow and cause
pain, infertility, and other problems. There are various treatments
for endometriosis, depending on the severity of the condition, where
the endometriosis is located, and the age of the individual.
