We have lots going on at our Happy Hormone Cottage facilities! Women are happy, we are growing, and blessed to be changing the face of hormone imbalance on a daily basis. I think over the past 4 years, what has been most impactful for me, is the opportunity I have had to speak with women about the truth of hormone imbalance: what it looks like, why it happens, and what they can do about it. As an educator of over 30 years and a public speaker, I have had the privilege of speaking to many women about this natural aging process and the latest research on ways to help prevent disease by reestablishing optimal hormone balance as naturally as possible AND make this their first step to wellness. My mantra for the year continues to be “What We Place Our Attention On Determines The Quality of Our Lives,” and I continue to not only live this in my own life, but stress this importance to the women I work with, speak with and meet. My message is always the same: YOU are in charge of your journey so YOU will have to do what it takes for YOUR best health naturally. And because this message is different than what we traditionally hear at our healthcare practitioners’ offices, you DO have permission to DO WHAT IT TAKES to meet the needs of your body as you age, with preventative measures that work to fix our health issues, and not just band-aid them.
With our continuing quest to stay on the cutting edge of all things hormonal, we are very excited to announce our partnership with Precision Analytical Lab and their forward-thinking technology with testing hormone levels in urine. This super simple take-home kit uses urine samples on strips of paper to analyze not only our sex hormones, but also cortisol, metabolites and the methylation pathway. We are finding this information to be extremely helpful for our women in not only measuring current hormone levels of new clients, but also for our women currently on hormone therapy. The risk of contamination from the topical hormone creams is significantly reduced and the information we can collect allows us to make the best recommendation we can for our clients on their hormone journey. The cost of this kit is comparable to our saliva testing and is reimbursable by many insurance providers.
Finally, we are pleased to announce the addition of our own Nurse Practitioner, Angela Rothstein, to our Kettering and Mason facilities. She is working with us full time to meet with our clients to start them on their journey to wellness, as well as to work with them on the successful continuation of their hormone journey. She will work closely with Jeff in not only hormone balance, but also in Functional Medicine, so we can continue to focus on holistic health, anti-aging and disease prevention. Women can also meet with Angela on our new weight loss program, which is a special passion of hers. The beauty of working with Angela is you can still keep your current ob gyn for your gyn needs and see Angela for your BHRT needs. If you are currently working with a doctor who is not meeting your expectations in this area, you are also free to come in and meet with Angela. Please call us at 513-444-6343 for more information and to schedule an appointment. We look forward to serving you!
