When thinking of hormone therapy, most people think of reproductive hormones such as estrogen and progesterone. The thyroid gland and the adrenal glands also make hormones that play a large part of our metabolism, mental clarity, mood and overall sense of well-being.
Most patients are told that adrenal dysfunction is not a true diagnosis and are typically offered only one type of conventional thyroid medication if needed. Fortunately, there is an alternative: Natural Hormone Therapy. If you’re looking for natural hormone therapy in Bend, Oregon, you’ll find it at Bend Naturopathic Clinic. Dr. Karli will perform a thorough exam to determine the best course of action to address your specific needs. Potential courses of treatment may include natural thyroid management, treatment for adrenal fatigue or dysfunction, and custom-tailored natural hormone doses prepared by a compounding pharmacist or from a conventional pharmacy if possible.
