Hormone Replacement
Hormone Replacement

Replacing your deficient hormones can help you decrease anxiety, lose weight, and best of all, since bioidentical hormones are all-natural, they have a significantly lower risk of side effects than their synthetic counterparts.
The term "bioidentical" is derived from the fact that these hormones are identical in form to those produced within your body, making them the perfect natural solution to get you back to feeling like yourself.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help with hormonal imbalances and their symptoms, including:

  • Menopause
  • Low Testosterone
  • Menstrual Irregularities
  • Perimenopause
  • Estrogen Dominance
Do you feel like you have a hormonal imbalance, but aren’t sure where to start with hormone replacement therapy? Contact Expect Wellness today to find the right bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for you!

Menopause is a naturally occurring biological process that every woman comes to experience. Menopause is a time of metamorphosis– a change and evolution in your hormones and other biological processes. This metamorphosis can begin for women between 40 and 50 years of age.

Menopause is said to start 12 months after a woman experiences her last menstrual cycle. The perimenopause stage can come with experiencing certain symptoms:

  • Hot flashes and night sweats.
  • Chills.
  • Irregular periods.
  • Vaginal dryness.
  • Mood swings and irritability.
  • Lower sex drive.
  • Sleep irregularities.
  • Lower energy levels.
  • Weight gain.
  • Thinning hair.
  • Dry skin and changes in skin tone.
  • Breast changes.
But like every butterfly, every woman may experience these symptoms differently. Menopause doesn’t have to be completely troubling.

“Growing into your future with health, grace, and beauty doesn’t have to take all of your time. It rather requires a dedication to caring for yourself as if you were rare and precious, which you are, and regarding all life around you as equally so, which it is.” – author Victoria Moran.

Your metamorphosis into menopause doesn’t have to be troubling as there are ways to help remedy these symptoms.

Dr. Hall and Expect Wellness are here to provide support through this transition into the new beautiful you. Contact Expect Wellness today to get started.
