Estrogen and Progesterone are not the only hormones to blame for these symptoms. For example, the stress hormone cortisol also plays a role in metabolic and immune function alterations. The thyroid, adrenals, and ovaries (or gonads in men) must all be in balance and if one is over or under-producing it will naturally cause changes in the other endocrine glands.

If you are experiencing any of the signs and symptoms mentioned above, there is safe and effective treatment available.

Abnormal periods and menopausal symptoms should not be written off as a “normal” part of aging. With the accuracy and detail of salivary and serum testing, we can find the specific cause of your symptoms and customize a treatment to meet your individual needs. The interest in a more natural approach to hormone therapy has focused attention on bioidentical hormones, hormones that are identical in molecular structure to the hormones women make in their bodies.
