What are Bio-Identical Hormones?
A bio-identical hormone is simply a hormone that is atom for atom the same hormone that is endogenously produced in the human body. It is produced in a lab from the active ingredients of the wild yam and it looks and acts just like our natural hormone. Patients using bio-identical hormones experience fewer side effects than with synthetic hormones. The goals of BHRT are to alleviate the symptoms of hormone depletion caused by aging, stress and/or poor lifestyle and to give the protective benefits that balanced hormones provide when you are in your 20’s and 30’s.

What is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy is an evidence-based approach to maximizing one’s health potential through individually formulated nutritional and lifestyle changes.  Nutritional Therapy uses an assessment process to identify imbalances in body chemistry.  These imbalances or nutritional deficiencies are corrected through diet, lifestyle changes and targeted nutrients.
