The common story that hot flashes and night sweats are a byproduct of declining estrogen levels is false. In reality, hot flashes and night sweats are commonly due to a shift in the estrogen to progesterone ratio that occurs in some women. Hormone evaluation through lab work is essential to measure not only the absolute values of these hormones, but also their relative ratios and imbalances.

Many over the counter preparations and prescriptions made without adequate testing do not work as well as they should because they are not addressing the specific imbalance in your estrogen to progesterone ratio. Our therapies are geared toward moving you to an optimal hormone ratio and ridding you of these unpleasant symptoms.
