Hormone Replacement For Women

Progesterone is secreted by the ovaries and reduces symptoms of premature menstrual syndrome. It protects against uterine and breast cancers, osteoporosis, fibrocystic disease and ovarian cysts. It dramatically decreases menopausal symptoms.

Most physicians prescribe synthetic progestins which cause such side effects as bloating, headaches, fatigue and weight gain.

The natural progesterone must be prescribed in place of the synthetic progestin to avoid the side effects and protect against cancer. At Morris Medical Center, we emphasize the use of natural hormones and not the synthetic hormones, which have been proven time and time again to cause significant side effects.


Estrogen Therapy

Estrogen is secreted by the ovaries. Estrogen protects against heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease and memory disorders.

It protects against vaginal atrophy, urinary incontinence, and prevents symptoms of menopause, including hot flashes and temperature fluctuation. It improves balance by improving the visual somatosensory system in the central nervous system.

Estrogen deficiency results in urogenital atrophy, incontinence, sagging skin in the breasts, increased wrinkles of the face, decreased fatigue, depression, mood swings, and decreased libido.

It is of extreme importance that the estrogen prescribed be a natural estrogen and not a synthetic estrogen. The synthetic estrogens have been shown to be harmful. At Morris Medical Center, we only prescribe natural hormones and never use the potential cancer causing synthetic hormones (such as Premarin). For optimal protection, natural estrogen supplementation may be balanced together with natural progesterone supplementation.
