It is Time to Take Care of You!
Women seeking relief from menopausal consequences such as night sweats, hot flashes, loss of memory, weight gain, mood swings, and low libido need look no further. Women are lining up at Wdowin NMD to have their hormones balanced with bioidentical hormones. All qualified Anti-Aging physicians, physicians at Wdowin NMD devise individualized plans for every client to assist in bringing an end to their suffering, and relief from the consequences resulting from stress-stimulated adrenal weariness, perimenopause, menopause, and PMS.
What are Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are a precise copy, molecule by molecule, of the hormones that are generated by our own bodies.
How are Bioidentical Hormones manufactured?
Different from supplements made from wild yam or soy, bioidentical hormones are created from diosgenin, a common molecule extracted from wild yam or soy. Diosgenin is actually chemically converted within a laboratory to make the bioidentical hormones needed to supplement our aging bodies. Bioidentical hormone medications are typically produced by an extremely skilled compounding pharmacy. The compounding pharmacists offer prescriptions that contain a modified formulation to satisfy a patient's unique hormone chemistry needs. These hormones are manufactured in various forms including capsules, creams, gels, lozenges, and suppositories.
Why not Synthetic Hormones?
Artificial in relation to chemical structure and the way they react in the human body, synthetic hormones may be derived from animal origin, as is the case with Premarin, a horse urine derived medication consisting of many different estrogens and estrogen metabolites that our bodies do not recognize. Many physicians consider these hormones to be toxic since their chemical composition cannot be metabolized appropriately by our bodies. This is the reason that conventional hormone replacement therapy has such dangerous side effects.
Artificial hormones also present a one-size-fits-all resolution to differing personal troubles. In contrast, the compounded bioidentical hormones which physicians at Wdowin NMD prescribe are carefully matched independently to every woman's unique biochemical needs - something that is not likely achievable with synthetic or even manufactured bioidentical hormones.
Hormones and Cancer
Many women are scared of starting hormone therapy because they are worried about the misunderstood relationship between cancer and hormones. It is important to understand that the popularized studies such as The Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) associate artificial, synthetic hormones to ovarian cancer, breast cancer, and uterine tumors. There have been no studies that simply look at cancer and customized bioidentical hormones. Bioidentical hormones are made by a compounding pharmacy to match a person’s body chemistry needs; thus, the hormones cannot be used for research. Moreover, it is important to realize that a woman's normal estrogen and progesterone produced by her own body have fundamentally no link to endometrial and breast tumors. In fact, bioidentical hormones decrease the danger of breast tumors by correcting the hormone imbalance caused by menopause and perimenopause. Bioidentical hormones dangers are in no way equivalent or even similar to artificial, synthetic hormones.
Hormones function together in a way similar to members of a symphony orchestra. If one hormone or instrument is not in sync with the others, the entire group cannot function properly. Synthetic hormones try to right or modify a hormone imbalance in a void, without concern for how it will influence and interrelate with the other body hormones. Bioidentical hormones for women work together in harmony to manage the entire range of hormones

The Adrenal Glands
Adrenal fatigue and Post Menopause Stress work hand in hand. The two triangle-shaped glands known as the adrenal glands, located just above the kidneys, are responsible for controlling the body's reaction to stress by managing the hormones released during stress. Cortisol is the key adrenal hormone that is released during periods of acute stress. This is a normal body function and is needed by the body to cope with life. The adrenals produce cortisol in reaction to low blood sugar, exercise, stress and enthusiasm. The adrenals release most of our cortisol in the mornings to help us get started with our day. The glands gradually reduce the amounts released as the day goes on.
Once stress turns chronic, however, and is not treated properly, the adrenal glands become incapable of functioning correctly. This can lead to a condition known as adrenal fatigue.
The Symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue
- Getting up in the middle of the night
- Inability to go to sleep
- Increased vulnerability to infections
- Midday weariness
- Decreased ability to cope with stress
- Craving for salty and sugary foods
- Allergic reaction to objects that you were not allergic to previously
- Chemical responsiveness
- A propensity to feel cold
The stress resulting from hormone imbalance known as menopause and perimenopause for women, is a major contributor to adrenal weariness. Customized bioidentical hormone remedies that balance an individual’s biochemistry, together with the hormones secreted during stress are just what your body needs. This strategy of hormonal equilibrium, together with an individualized diet, dietary enhancements and a wellness program, Wdowin NMD can significantly decrease your adrenal fatigue and stress.
Thyroid Hormone Replacement Privacy
The human thyroid is a tiny gland situated in the lower area of the neck. The gland secretes hormones that play a main part in an individual’s energy levels and metabolism. The main thyroid hormones are thyroxine (T4), triiodothyronine (T3), and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH).
Thyroid imbalances occur when your thyroid secretes too many or too few of these hormones. An excessively active thyroid, referred to as hyperthyroidism, ensues when the thyroid glands generate too many hormones. This can lead to symptoms varying from anxiety and heart palpitations to weight loss, muscle weakness and heat intolerance.
An underactive thyroid or hypothyroidism is by far the most common condition. In reality, several estimates indicate that 1 in 7 adults suffer from hypothyroidism.
Symptoms of Hypothyroidism & Endocrine Disorders
While the thyroid gland is less active, a human’s metabolism decreases and he or she experiences signs such as:
- Inexplicable weight gain
- Dry hair and skin
- Loss of hair
- Inflammation or face swelling
- Muscle aches and weak spot
- Deep menstrual periods
- Brittle nails and hair
- Feelings of hopelessness
- Cold intolerance
Numerous women show signs of low thyroid, however, are informed that their lab results fall within the normal range and that there is no cause for worry. Since conventional medicine frequently simply looks at TSH, accurate diagnosis of any thyroid conditions cannot be achieved. During 2002, the Society of Endocrinologists stated that the normal examination ranges for TSH were imprecise and that numerous people having hypothyroidism remain undetected. Different from most endocrinologists and doctors, Wdowin NMD asses all of your thyroid levels including free T4 and T3, rT3 levels as well as TSH. Moreover, physicians at Wdowin NMD test for thyroid antibodies which can assist in establishing the existence of autoimmune thyroid disorders.
Thyroid Hormone Replacement Therapy
At Wdowin NMD, physicians use a more comprehensive method to manage thyroid disorders. We do not simply search for "sufficient" or "standard" ranges, but strives to keep your levels of thyroid hormones in balance so you experience maximum benefit. Furthermore, we employ the most efficient mixture of thyroid hormones necessary for good health.
Using traditional medications, hypothyroidism is normally managed with synthetic T4 that can normalize your levels of T4 and TSH. Nevertheless, numerous people cannot competently convert T4 to T3. This is a problem since T3 is the active form of thyroid hormone. Although your levels of T4 and TSH are most favorable, if your levels of T3 are disproportional, you might still suffer symptoms.
After we evaluate your current levels of your thyroid hormones, we can subsequently provide you with an individually-modified bioidentical thyroid substitute treatment regimen tailored to your personal needs, to ensure that your hormone levels remain in balance.
