Women's Health

At Florida Center for Healthy Living, we are committed to providing women with the latest information and treatments for improving health.

We are dedicated to providing women of all ages with a natural, safe, and holistic approach to health care and well-being while providing the ultimate in preventative medical care.

Bio-Identical hormone replacement, (BHRT) is the supplemental use of hormones that chemically replicate the natural hormones produced in the human body. We use BHRT to replace hormones identical to what the body recognizes to treat hormone imbalances commonly associated with the signs of menopause. BHRT are identical to naturally produced hormones as opposed to synthetically manufactured hormones.

Bio-Identical anti-aging hormones can reestablish normal levels of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA and cortisol.

Common symptoms of hormone imbalances can include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Weight gain
  • Night sweats
  • Memory loss
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Decreased libido
  • Irritability
  • Dry skin
  • Loss of muscle
  • Incontinence
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Sleeping problems
  • Changes in skin appearance
  • Wrinkling
  • Osteoporosis
  • Headaches
  • Weight gain
  • Loss of skin elasticity

Worried about Bone Loss?

After obtaining an initial bone density scan we offer modalities for treating bone loss. We are now able to follow and measure bone loss more accurately with special urinary tests performed at regular intervals. Although bio-identical hormone replacement is very effective in improving bone density, we also offer additional natural treatments that are as effective as Fosamax and Boniva, but without the common side-effects.

Hormone replacement is imperative to help prevent bone loss which commonly occurs after menopause. In addition we use natural regiments that have been proven to build new bones and restore density without the risks seen with the use of prescription drugs.

Lost that loving feeling?

The loss of libido is very common and inevitable after menopause. Replacing natural hormones are not only very effective in restoring the sex drive, but will also improve orgasms, repair or maintain vaginal tissue and help natural lubrication to make the sexual experience more enjoyable.

Ask us about Oxytocin which is a treatment that enhances the intensity and frequency of orgasms.

Concerned about breast cancer?

Women are more at risk for breast cancer after menopause because of the associated hormonal losses. At Florida Center for Healthy Living we can test your estrogen metabolism and discuss with you how balancing your hormones with other protective measures such as nutrition, lifestyle changes, detoxification, and supplementation may actually lower your risk.

Wondering what nutrients you are lacking?

Many of us take supplements without really knowing what we need. At Florida Center for Healthy Living, we can perform a comprehensive test of your nutrients and review your supplements and health needs to help develop an individual regimen exclusively for you by identifying any nutrient deficiencies you may have.
