Women impacted by menopausal symptoms can discover means to potential relief on Wednesday, March 28 at 5:30pm – 6:30pm at Womankind, with a Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Program presentation. The open house and meet-and-greet with Medical Director Dr. David Forest and Medical Assistant Annie Caridad will feature a brief presentation with time for questions and answers following, along with supplemental holistic measures women can implement to support themselves during these difficult times.
The symptoms of menopause are not for the faint of heart; hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, decreased sex drive, sleep difficulties, and other challenging physical symptoms plague women worldwide during this stage of life. More than 1.4 million menopausal women have put an end to this discomfort and stress with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, a preventative and medical approach to a woman’s changing hormones.
Womankind, a Key West medical center that provides high-quality family planning and primary health care to people of all income levels, has successfully operated their Bioidenticals program for four years, and wants to ensure that women know there are alternatives to their suffering. While conventional pharmaceutical hormone replacement treatment is also available at the center, Womankind’s Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy treatment helps patients find menopausal relief with a safe, effective, and comprehensive program designed for their specific needs.
“The thing I love about this treatment program is that we can tailor-make it to each individual by checking hormone levels and adjusting the dosage of the hormone levels not only to a therapeutic range, but a safe range,” says Dr. Forest. “There are many women who are taking traditional treatments, that if you check their hormone levels, they are going to be sub-therapeutic. Meaning they really aren’t doing anything.”
Dr. Forest offers patients cutting-edge hormone level assessment tests combined with a caring consultation that discusses a patient’s struggles, symptoms, and health goals to help pinpoint a prescription that’s right for them. Patients can find relief as early as the first visit, with a series of three visits ensuring a safe and effective program followed by monitoring and maintenance visits.
