All of the symptoms above can be related to perimenopause (the 10+ years prior to Menopause) and Menopause (when your period stops permanently). Some women have all of these symptoms, while others have only a small handful. These are not inevitable consequences of aging….these are signs that you’ve lost hormones and are lacking disease protection. The good news? We can fix them all!

Sanctuary Functional Medicine specializes in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, helping women overcome the side effects of Perimenopause and Menopause, while giving women much-needed disease prevention. Bioidentical Hormones are chemically, structurally identical to the hormones your body makes (or used to make). Because of this, Bioidentical Hormones not only give you symptom relief, but also lower your risk of Heart Disease, Alzheimers, Osteoporosis, Colorectal Cancer and many others diseases associated with aging (Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome, Sarcopenia, etc.).

The media (and many medical providers) have incorrectly lumped traditional commercially-available hormones (such as Premarin, Prempro and Provera) in with Bioidentical Hormones when reporting on the latest research or answering questions about hormones. Most bioidentical hormones start with a base of wild yams, while some commercially available hormones are synthesized from pregnant mare’s urine (Premarin and PremPro) and contain estrogens that are unique to horses and not found in humans at all.

We look forward to walking with you as we work to reverse these symptoms AND lower  your risk of many diseases like Alzheimer’s, Breast Cancer, Uterine Cancer, Osteoporosis, Heart Disease and Colorectal Cancer.
