Bio-identical Hormones for Women

T he Paradigm Highland Park Restorative Clinic is a Specialist Clinic at treating women of all ages with bioidentical hormones in the United States and as such, along with our combined years of medical experience, has become the expert in dosing bioidentical hormones for women. We have treated thousands of women successfully with the approach that each one is unique and must be treated accordingly.

Menopause Symptoms
As women age, their naturally occurring sex hormones decline often leading to the following symptoms:

  • fatigue
  • weight gain
  • migraines
  • night sweats<.li>
  • brain fog
  • depression
  • hot flashes
  • loss of libido
  • osteoporosis
  • insomnia
  • anxiety
The median age of onset for perimenopause is 47.5 years and most women spend one-third to half of their life in post-menopause.

Perimenopause Symptoms
Women who are still menstruating typically suffer from the following symptoms:
  • irregular menstrual cycles
  • heavy periods without clotting
  • menstrual cramps
  • ovarian cysts
  • uterine fibroids
  • endometriosis
  • premenstrual breast tenderness
  • fluid retention and weight gain
  • anxiety
  • panic attacks
  • depression
  • mood swings
  • migraines
  • decreased libido
Causes of Hormonal Imbalance in Women
These symptoms are both the results of living in an estrogen-laden environment as well as the result of the aging process when hormone levels typically decline. Women also experience an imbalance in their hormone levels at certain trigger points during their life such as puberty, after birth control pills, after hysterectomy, or simply as a woman moves through her menstrual life and into menopause.

Traditional Medicine’s Approach to Hormones
Traditional medicine has adopted the use of synthetic and non-bioidentical hormones such as Premarin or Prempro which have been pushed by big Pharma. These hormones may actually worsen the problem and they have many undesired risks.

Treating the Symptoms does not cure the PROBLEM
It is common for traditional doctors to prescribe drugs for each symptom a patient is experiencing such as sleep medication, anti-anxiety medications, and antidepressants. None of these medications solve the underlying cause of the problem. If fact they may worsen the hormone imbalance and make you feel WORSE than before!

Hormone Balance is the Answer
Would you like to get rid of these symptoms all the while preventing osteoporosis, heart disease, maybe even dementia and possibly decrease your risk for breast cancer? The key lies in balancing your hormones.

At Paradigm Highland Park Restorative Clinic, our approach is to correct these imbalances by replenishing the bioidentical hormones for women such as progesterone in pre-menopausal women and with both bioidentical progesterone and estradiol in post-menopausal women. These bioidentical hormones for women are molecularly identical to your body’s naturally occurring hormones. Just as we are each made with unique fingerprints, we are also each designed with estradiol and progesterone levels that are optimal for us as individuals. We work with you to find your body’s natural sweet spot by beginning with a lower dose and slowly increasing until symptoms are resolved and your body is back in balance.

Let’s Not get Too Complicated
If your body is missing something, wouldn’t you rather replace it with exactly the same thing that it is missing?. So why put something foreign into your body instead of what it really needs?
