Treating hormone imbalance and endocrine disorders in women is one of our passions. We are very empathetic with the “internal chaos” one feels when their hormones are not properly balanced. We have treated hundreds of women and men of all ages with hormone issues; from the teen years through menopause or andropause. We have a diverse range of treatment options for each patient depending on the symptoms, the personal preferences of the patient, and her clinical experience. Treatments may range from diet changes, lifestyle modification, stress reduction, vitamins, herbs, homeopathy and of course, bioidentical hormones.
Bioidentical Hormones and Perimenopause/Menopause
At Oregon Natural Medicine we strive to provide the most natural therapies possible to our patients. We know that often simple lifestyle changes and vitamins yield incredible results; we also know that sometimes the body wants more. Bio-identical hormone therapy can provide amazing results in women who are experiencing many peri/menopausal symptoms (hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, loss of libido, painful intercourse, foggy thinking, headaches, and more). We only use compounded bioidentical hormones. Each person’s body has its own unique balance of hormones and therefore should have its own combination of bio-identical hormones for an individualized prescription.
Bioidentical hormones and Thyroid
Women are more commonly affected than men by thyroid disease. At Oregon Natural Medicine we treat hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s, Hyperthyroid and Graves Disease using Diet, Lifestyle Modification, Vitamins, Herbs, Homeopathy, and Bio-identical Hormones. Our goal is to get the root of the problem. We often use hormone replacement therapy, though we try to get the body back into balance naturally overtime with the goal of not having to take life-long medications (unless absolutely indicated).
Bioidentical Hormones and Men’s Health
Dr. Reynolds has helped numerous men with symptoms of andropause (low libido, low energy, reduced muscle mass), and erectile and sexual dysfunction with diet modification, lifestyle changes, stress reduction, vitamins, herbs, homeopathy and hormone therapy (testosterone). Many men feel more energetic, and report having a happier, healthier sex life after starting testosterone therapy. Dr. Reynolds utilizes saliva-hormone testing through ZRT Laboratory & Labrix Laboratory for evaluating each Man’s individualized hormone patterns and prescribes treatment as necessary.
