“Night sweats, waking up at 3:00 in the morning peeling off my clothes, it’s cold outside and I just wanted to run outside. I thought I was losing my mind. I didn’t know what was going on with me. I just couldn’t live like that. So I told Dr. Harris my symptoms and he said that he had something that could help me. So I came and listened to a presentation and I was like ‘Sign me up!’
I trust him. I’ve been a patient of his for a long time. My children are patients of his, a couple friends are patients of his…and I believe in him. And I believe in what he stands for. I just trust him.” -Chaunte, 50
Many women when they reach a certain age, sometimes even starting in their upper 30’s, experience symptoms of hormonal imbalance such as hot flashes, night sweats, low libido, fatigue, and mood swings. In our society this is seen as something that just happens to women, and that there’s nothing to be done about it. It’s just part of being a woman and you must deal with it until it passes. In 10+ years. This does not have to be the case…these symptoms CAN be fixed!
Women naturally produce certain levels of estrogen and testosterone, and when you are younger these hormones are in balance. As women age though, production of these hormones decreases which results in those uncomfortable symptoms…because your hormones are out of balance!
At Horizons we use BiaPelle Therapy, which is a natural, plant-based, bio-identical pellet, that releases a steady flow of hormones to your system. This eliminates the hormonal ups and downs commonly seen with pills, patches, and creams. The hormone levels of the pellets are specific to you and your blood work. An additional benefit to pellets, is that you only need to get them inserted 3-4 times per year.
Many people have experienced a profound change after starting BiaPelle Therapy – just like with Chaunte. After starting therapy she is no longer having hot flashes or night sweats (or the urge to run outside in the cold in the middle of the night!!), and has experienced a positive change in regards to libido. She told us, “With the sex drive…before, I just didn’t care. I wasn’t mad or anything, I just couldn’t care less. After the insertion, everything changed.”
At Horizons we don’t believe that these symptoms are something women should have to suffer through. Dr. Harris has changed many patients lives, including his own, with this therapy.
