Dr. Gizersky offers a variety of interventions for restoration of the essence of the female hormonal system – Estrogen and Progesterone balance.
These treatments address the needs of the menopausal woman such as bothersome symptoms of hot flashes, insomnia, and sexual dysfunction as well as long-term risk factors of bone loss and cardiovascular disease. Women with Premature Ovarian Insufficiency and those seeking anti-aging and longevity are also candidates for these interventions.
Dr. Gizersky integrates vitamins and nutraceuticals as well as Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). There are several options for BHRT, which can be customized to suit the needs of the patient. Vitality Logix relies on transdermal Estradiol/Estriol creams with oral Progesterone. A variety of modifications can be made such as cream forms including Estradiol/Estriol/Progesterone with/or without Testosterone (used for decreased libido in women). We also offer implantable hormone pellets that provide sustained release of hormones without the need for daily dosing.
For women who prefer a non-hormonal treatment approach to their menopause transition, Vitality Logix offers several studied and proven herbal/nutraceutical formulations that have a successful track record of alleviating symptoms.
Women on BHRT should feel significant relief of their symptoms related to menopause within several weeks, depending on the type of treatment. In women, cortisol imbalance and/or Adrenal Fatigue and Thyroid issues often exacerbate menopausal symptoms and evaluation for this is strongly recommended. If abnormalities in cortisol exist then balancing Adrenal Function and thyroid function (if it is sub-optimal) is necessary for the best possible clinical outcome.
