Bioidentical Hormones


Hormone test cost: $180

Initial appointment cost $230 (depending on time ranging from one hour to an hour and a half), if paying at the time of service, get 15% off.

Follow-up appointment are $100 

Changes in energy, mood, libido, and menses can all happen at the same time.  However, these symptoms might not all be related to hormones.  The test I use measures estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, testosterone, cortisol throughout the day, insulin (fasting and post-prandial), and food allergens (gluten, cow milk, and soy).  Because this saliva test measures free hormones, you're getting information on the amount of hormones your body feels--not the inactive hormones bound to proteins, which is measured in blood tests.  In addition, we get information on other causes of hormonal dysregulation.  High testosterone and low progesterone can be caused by a blood sugar dysregulation.  This is why I also measure insulin.  Food sensitivities can cause high and low cortisol levels and symptoms can be similar to hormonal dysregulation.  With this test, we will learn so much more about your body than with any standard blood hormone test (and with blood hormone tests this extensive costing over $600, I'm glad we have the saliva option!).   The results of these tests have always matched the patient's symptoms, and we have seen great results from treatments based on the results of the test. 

Our treatment plan will always be holistic and take into account your body and all the natural healing modalities I have learned.  We can use subligual bioidentical hormones, herbs and nutrients, homeopathy and lifestyle changes.  To see a my latest blog on hormones, go to http://drsherylwagner.blogspot.com/2009_06_01_archive.html

Other health problems that can have similar symptoms to hormone problems (if your problem isn't hormones, we'll find it):

  • lyme disease
  • heart valve problems
  • insulin resistance
  • adrenal fatigue
  • high cortisol

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Verse of the month:

       "Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Every month they will bear, because the water from the sanctuary flows to them. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing."

Ezekial 47:12
