Bioidentical Hormones are natural hormones made from plants that supplement the body’s hormones. As we age our hormones decrease production of estrogen, progresterone, testosterone, and DHEA. Symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue, hot flashes, insomnia, depression, anxiety, low sex drive, skin or vaginal dryness, and headaches can be associated with a reduction in these hormones for women. Young women, including teens through 30′s, can experience hormonal imbalance resulting in pms, endometriosis, infertility, fibroid tumors, headaches, depression, and weight gain.
Men can also experience hormonal imbalance with symptoms such as fatigue, depression, low sex drive, weight gain, and prostate problems.
These changes can occur in women in their late 30′s to 60′s. Dr. Harel tests your hormones to determine your levels. She then prescribes natural hormones made from plants to match your specific needs. The result is a reduction in symptoms, as well as improved health and vitality.
