These symptoms are often a result of hormone levels decreasing in your body. In the past woman were offered a chemical solution for their symptoms but recent studies have shown an increased risk of heart attacks, strokes, breast cancer and blood clots with the use of the synthetic hormone Prempro (a combination of Premarin and Provera).

Women are frustrated but they are no longer willing to accept the risks associated with chemical hormones and are searching for safer alternatives.  Millions of women are now benefiting from Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy.

How do women get started on Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy?

Following a physical examination and screening, the patient then completes an at-home saliva test or a blood test. The sample is sent to a state-of-the-art CLIA  laboratory and the results arrive back to Dr. Seibert within 2-3 business days. Blood test results usually arrive within 3-4 business days. Once your test results are received, you will be called to schedule an appointment to go over the results. Candidates for hormone therapy will receive a personalized prescription for that individual’s specific hormone levels. These bio-identical hormones are made to the doctor’s exact specifications by a compound pharmacy. Dr. Seibert coaches you on the benefits of regular exercise and a healthy diet, as this combined with bio-identical hormone therapy will help you on the road to a healthier lifestyle.
