Hormonal Health

As you age, your hormone production begins to slow down, contributing to physical and mental deterioration and putting you at risk for developing chronic diseases. Hormones also help manage energy production and a regular metabolism.

Our experienced practitioners offer a unique hormonal therapy to help with a variety of health issues.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is prescription medication containing female hormones that seeks to balance the key hormones you are lacking and improve a multitude of symptoms.

Hormone replacement therapy is most commonly associated with menopause treatment but it has a wide array of uses. It can help treat people with:

  • Mood, sleep or weight management challenges
  • PCOS, endometriosis,
  • menopausal symptoms, reducing the risk of osteoporosis and cardiovascular events
  • Severe PMS
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Low libido and vaginal dryness
  • Infertility and pregnancy support (miscarriage prevention)
  • Hypothyroid and weight gain

Prescription hormones

Dr. Jessica, ND is licensed to prescribe hormone therapies, including topical and vaginal Estrogen, Progesterone, and oral Desiccated thyroid. To be able to prescribe hormones, she had to take rigorous training and pass an additional licensing exam.

Hormone replacement therapy isn’t right for everyone, but we work closely with you and your family doctor to assess if it is the right treatment option for you. Lab testing and ultrasounds may be necessary to make the best diagnosis possible.

Once we have the full picture, we determine the minimum effective dose that will improve your health but minimize side effects and other risk factors. The success of your treatment depends on constant monitoring, ensuring the right combination and dosage of hormones.

Natural, bioidentical hormones

At Lakeside Natural Health, we use natural bioidentical hormones made from plants or animal byproducts, instead of synthetic hormones, which have demonstrated problematic side effects. Bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to those made by your body and are metabolized the same way. We want to provide you with the safest, natural medications available on the market for your personal health.

Let’s get you started on your
path to better health.
