Happy, Happy Women!

I love my job! My job is my passion: educating women on what a hormone imbalance feels like, and then offering them some solutions to fix their imbalance by replacing their hormones to refill their levels and get them back on track. I can’t tell you the joy I get working with women to get them feeling better. I think the most interesting part, for me, is the validation “my” women feel when their test results come back and they actually see their hormone levels (or lack thereof!!) Many of these women have been told by the medical community for so long that there was nothing wrong with them; “suck it up,”; or “here’s an antidepressant to help you live with the symptoms.” I’m sorry but women deserve so much better! So when these test results come back and validate the reason the women have been feeling so badly, they are just thrilled! I often hear comments like, “I knew I was feeling bad for a reason!” or “I’m so relieved to learn there IS a physiological problem and that I can treat the cause and feel better!” It just brings me joy! I won’t even begin to talk about the radiance these women express when they actually begin their natural compounded hormone replacement therapy and really begin to feel better! It just makes me smile!

  1. It is so wonderful to read you blog and the information on your website. I have struggled with hormone-related issues for years and have experienced a bit of everything you have mentioned – 1) Doctors telling me that I was too young to be going through ‘the change’; 2) pushing medication to get me out of the office; 3) ignoring my requests to have my hormones tested; 4) handed an anti-depressant and a diuretic to ‘fix my problems’; 5) experimented with the pellets – being told to come back when I started to feel they were no longer working (isn’t it too late by then?) and having no interaction in between pellets – the final straw was spending an entire summer feeling pregnant with swollen breast, weight gain and bloatedness and being told at my next appointment that too much estrogen can cause that and to just ‘skip’ those pellets – oh and how about doubling the testosterone instead? And I asked, “isn’t that the one that makes me mean and aggressive towards my husband’? The look on the nurse’s face was priceless. I never went back. So I quietly suffer and attempt to do what I can for myself. After being ‘anti-doctor’ for nearly 2 years- I look feel hope again.
