Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

When hormones become imbalanced or deficient, we want to encourage the body to re-balance itself naturally.

At NatureMedica, we can accomplish this by Balance hormones with naturopathic medicine and bio identical hormone therapyeliminating stress (i.e. simplifying our lives, being consistent with prayer/meditation, daily exercise, regular massage, etc.) supplying the body with proper nutrition through vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, etc; supporting glandular health (ie. adrenals, thyroid, ovaries, etc.) with herbs; and detoxifying the liver– your main filter and ally when hormonal levels get excessive.

There are times when hormones can be replenished with plant-derived bio identical hormones.  Unlike synthetic hormones, bio identical hormones are chemically indistinguishable from the body’s own hormones. Dr. Judy Gianni has been working with bio-identical hormones for 20 years. These formulations are designed to meet the unique individual needs of each person through custom-blending at a compounding pharmacy. Dr. Judy Gianni works with several compounding pharmacies locally and around the country.  Hormones are best balanced on a foundation of a healthy body that is nourished correctly and when all the major glands and organs are working optimally. That’s where a naturopathic doctor has a tremendouse advantage. Knowledge of body chemistry and the power of natural supplementation, healthy diet,  exercise, and stress reduction can insure optimal health and then hormone blancing becomes simply a matter of fine tuning!

Compounded natural bio identical hormones are a great alternative to standard hormone replacement and can be put into any dose, strength, composition or delivery system that works best for each patient’s unique needs!

How do we determine the unique needs of our patients?

  •  Through a thorough interview and physical exam
  •  Through testing hormonal levels (most labs are covered by insurance)
  •  By blending the art of science and medicine

 

As a naturopathic physician, Dr. Judy Gianni combines the most natural approaches with the most cutting edge alternative therapies for you to achieve complete hormonal balance. Freedom from symptoms, vibrant health and a return to feeling like yourself at your very best is the outcome that can be expected.  Every person’s particular needs are so unique.  It takes lots of experience, asking the right questions and knowing how to make adjustments for the best possible outcome- feeling fabulous again!
