Here's the thing...
Your hormones control just about everything in your body. And, without getting into a lot of eye-glazing anatomy and physiology, just know that when they are out of whack, you can't possibly feel like yourself.
The balance of this system can be thrown off by many factors such as crappy diet, chronic stress, environmental toxins, and autoimmune conditions (among others).
As you get older, your hormone levels go down…and this is perfectly normal. These changes are different for everyone and can range from mildly annoying to flat-out miserable!
Feeling Hesitant About Hormones?
Some simple changes can make a big difference in how you experience these transitions. Scientific evidence indicates that lifestyle changes, herbs, vitamins, stress management, and exercise can support hormone balance.
In fact, up to 90% of women can be helped without estrogen replacement! And, most of this can be done without ever setting foot in your doctor’s office!
BUT, be careful. It isn’t safe to pull something off the drugstore shelf and start using just because it’s there. You need to understand where you’re starting from and work with a trusted professional who can guide you through the maze of options and coach you to reach your personal goals.
You don't have to suffer through it...
About Dr. Anna Garrett:
As a Doctor of Pharmacy with 20 years of experience as a frontline clinical pharmacist, I’ve worked in just about every setting you can imagine (except standing behind the counter in a drugstore…not my thing).
I’m also a Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist…which means I passed a killer exam about all things drug-related and, four years ago, I completed a 100 hour certification in Intrinsic Coaching®.
What this all boils down to is, I am qualified to do what I do. BUT here’s what I really want you to know about me beyond degrees and letters after my name:
I see so many women who believe that suffering through midlife is just the hand they’ve been dealt and they can’t do anything about it and nothing could be further from the truth. Suffering is optional and part of my purpose on this planet is to rid the world of as much of it as possible.
As a card-carrying member of the midlife tribe, I deal with perimenopausal wonkiness in my own life. I’ve been divorced and remarried. I dance with old demons from my childhood. I’ve reinvented myself (twice)… and I’m more than happy to tell you all about it.
And lastly, I am crazy about my clients. They’ll tell you. Just ask if you’d like to talk to one or two of them (or read the Success Stories section on www.drannagarrett.com).
“I was incredibly hot, bothered and SLEEPLESS! I couldn’t stand it any more, but my doctor’s office told me it was going to take 6 weeks to get an appointment to be seen. SIX WEEKS! I couldn’t wait that long, so I took matters into my own hands.Meg Murphy, Asheville, NC
I contacted Dr. Anna about her hormone balance consultations. She did an in-depth symptom history and coordinated salivary hormone testing for me.
Within a few weeks of beginning the hormone replacement, my hot flashes have disappeared and I feel more like myself! I’ve also been focusing on self-care and am feeling stronger and more peaceful in letting my body recover. AND, best of all, I’m sleeping!”
I Get It...
As “a woman of a certain age”, I understand completely what you are going through. My NIGHTS were hell.
I’d lie awake, staring at the clock. And the night sweats were almost unbearable. I’d have to get up some nights to change my jammies and sheets.
I couldn’t stand for my husband to be anywhere near me in the bed!
All of this made my DAYS foggy, frazzled, and downright exhausting. Not to mention what it did to my love life.
Fortunately, I’m a curious sort of girl and I decided to conduct my own “bio-hacking" experiment. I tested my own hormone levels and discovered I had issues with low progesterone and adrenal fatigue. Just knowing there was an explanation made me feel so much better!
I tweaked my lifestyle and added in some progesterone cream, vitamins, and supplements. And, three months later, I felt so MUCH better!
Are you ready to let go of the struggle and feel better too?
I Can Help You Too, My Sassy Sister!
Are you ready to take control and get some answers? Relief is closer than you think.
I’ve created a special package that gives you a clear picture of your hormone balance AND what stress is doing to your body. When we work together, we'll dive into your individual history and I'll evaluate all of your key lady hormone levels (estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, testosterone, and cortisol). Thyroid testing can be added, as needed.
Then, I’ll custom-create a plan to support your body using the power of nutrition, the gentle support of herbs and plant-based supplements, mind-body exercises, and relaxation techniques.
Bio-identical hormone supplementation with estrogen or testosterone can be added when necessary and with your doctor’s permission.
