Many people – and doctors – use antidepressants as a first-line of treatment against depression, anxiety and similar mood disorders. However, many of these conditions are actually hormonal in nature and can be resolved much more effectively (and with far fewer side effects!) using bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
When a woman is in her 20’s and 30’s, she relies on a delicate balance of hormones to maintain her youthful curves and physique. When these hormones begin to decline, as they do in the months and years leading up to menopause, it’s common for women to notice some changes, such as fluctuations in weight and changes in skin texture.

Throughout our lives, it’s in our inherent nature to question our purpose in life. It’s natural for us to wonder whether or not we’re taking the right steps towards achieving that in which we view as success. As years fold into decades, it seems harder and harder to wash away our worries and concerns. It seems that our fears and apprehensions have precipitated into our daily lives, making it more difficult to complete day-to-day tasks. We reach a certain age where death becomes an imminent reality – our hopes become eclipsed by the shadows of mortality. We don’t feel like ourselves anymore. We feel as if there’s something missing in our lives, we feel incomplete. As we age, our bodies begin to change, and as our bodies change, so do our values, our goals and our idea of success. We’re constantly changing who we are, improving who we are and shaping the person who we want to be.
