Maryland Medical Practice Uses Organic Therapy to Treat Menopause Patients
March 17, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsMarch 17, 2015 - Chevy Chase, MD – Tavicare helps menopause patients regain a feeling of wellness with biocompatible hormone therapy.
Standard treatments for menopause include taking a pill with synthetic hormones. This mediation helps control some of the side effects of menopause, but isn't indicated for long-term use and can actually cause harm when taken continually.
At Tavicare, Dr. Delara Tavakoli is helping patients fight the fatigue, hot flashes, mood swings, and weight gain that come with menopause through bio-identical hormone therapy. Dr. Tavakoli explains, "Bio-identical hormone therapy helps restore healthy levels of estrogen and progesterone for our patients, without the use of synthetic medication. Because bio-identical hormones are a close match to patients' own, natural hormones, they can use this therapy as long-term management for the effects of menopause. "
The use of synthetic hormones has been linked to an increased chance of breast cancer and isn't effective at balancing natural hormone levels for improved wellness. At best, this synthetic medication only makes menopause more bearable. However, Dr. Tavakoli is able to help patients in her community experience an improved feeling of wellness with sustainable menopause therapy using bioidentical hormones.
"Our goal is to take a whole-body approach to treatment, in order to care for the complete individual. Restoring hormone balance for menopausal women is just the beginning of improving wellness. We also help our patients feel healthier with nutritional counseling and even comprehensive age management and preventive medical treatments," Dr. Tavakoli adds. "Our bio-identical hormone treatments are part of how we care for patients in a way that is compatible with and supportive of their natural health and wellness."
