Dr. Rohde offers bio-identical hormone therapy integrated with proper fitness and nutrition for women and men. This preventive medical approach known as Functional or Metabolic Medicine helps put an end to suffering and effects caused by stress induced adrenal fatigue, chemical, neurotransmitter, and amino acid imbalances, signs of early menopause, menopause, and andropause (the male menopause).
Hormones decline as we age; bioidentical hormone therapy replaces the hormones that your body needs to function. Dr. Rohde uses bioidentical or natural hormones versus bio-similar or synthetic hormones. Bioidentical hormones are molecule-by-molecule, exactly the same as the hormones present in the human body. We will assess your individual needs and work to restore these hormones and customize a medical plan specifically for you.
Dr. Rohde will also discuss the importance of good nutrition, fitness and lifestyle choices in your journey to better health with natural hormones. Eating right and exercising are equally important aspects of bioidentical hormone therapy or hormone replacement therapy (HRT). If your hormones are out of balance, your body will not respond optimally to improved nutrition and exercise. As your hormones, nutrition, fitness, and lifestyle improve – you will begin to feel like your old self with improved energy, vitality and results.
Women suffering from early menopause symptoms looking to put an end to hot flashes, night sweats, memory loss, mood swings, weight gain, and low libido are turning to individualized treatment programs specifically for each woman to end the suffering from early menopause symptoms, menopause, perimenopause, and severe PMS.
Men experiencing the male menopause who want to get a grip on weight gain, lost libido, fatigue, stress, energy, muscle mass, and body fat are also finding solutions through natural hormone therapy. For men, andropause (the male menopause) happens gradually and when diagnosed, the symptoms are successfully treated using bioidentical hormone therapy.
During your initial consultation with Dr. Rohde, you'll spend time completing a thorough personal, medical and family history evaluation. Next, you will have a physical examination and then you will discuss hormones, review the findings gathered from your history and examination, and finally determine the next steps together.
To properly administer individualized bioidentical hormones, we will ask you to collect a saliva test, we will also draw blood, and depending on your symptoms and exam findings, possibly collect stool or urine specimens. These tests will provide a thorough evaluation of your symptoms and evaluate your body's present hormone balance.
Once your results are back, we will meet again to personally review your test results and discuss the appropriate treatment to meet your individual needs.
Your individualized treatment plan may include a combination of creams, pills, and specific nutritional supplements. Each treatment plan is customized to your individual needs. Please come prepared to pay for any nutritional supplements you may need.
We request that you utilize only pharmaceutical grade supplements in your treatment plan so you will receive their maximal benefit - we have personally selected superior brands. Supplements sold at regular pharmacies utilize lower grade ingredients and often will not provide the benefit we seek. I make specific recommendations based on my experience and testing you have paid for - shopping for the lowest price on supplements to restore your body's health and balance is not a wise decision.
