Why? Because our bodies never stop needing hormones... but their ability to produce them diminishes over time.

They protect our hearts. They make a difference all over the body!
Our method is based on The Menopause Method which was founded by David Rosensweet M.D. Their objective is to be the standard of care. It is SAFE, ORGANIC and most importantly IT WORKS.

Adequate hormones are needed for energy, libido, healthy arteries, cognitive function, and a healthy memory.
Inadequate hormones can lead to weight gain, osteoporosis, muscle loss, and diminished bladder control. Not to mention the hot flashes, insomnia, palpitations, dry skin, wrinkles and worry that often come on with menopause.
