Happy Hormone Cottage, LLC has partnered with Forever Health and its national spokesperson actress Suzanne Somers to educate women in the Midwest on how to regain balanced hormone health through Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).
Happy Hormone Cottage chief executive officer Lyn Hogrefe said Somers’ online registry, Forever Health, links women seeking hormone balance to doctors and treatment centers located where they live.
“The registry acts as a freeway to help women searching for answers to their mood swings, weight gain, loss of libido and other symptoms of perimenopause and menopause as they grow older,” said Hogrefe. “Women have the right to take charge of their journeys to wellness.”
Hogrefe is an author, speaker, educator, and blogger on women’s hormone health. Her book, Own Your Journey to Optimal Hormone Balance (New Leaf Publishing, March, 2013) goes on sale in March at the Happy Hormone Cottage website and at Amazon.com as a hard back and e-book.
Hogrefe and Happy Hormone Cottage, headquartered in Kettering, Ohio, have helped 4,000 women across the Midwest achieve hormone balance and better health through BHRT. Bioidentical hormones are included in compounded, personalized prescriptions of hormone creams (biestrogen, progesterone and testosterone) mixed at its Piqua Consulting and Compounding Lab in Piqua, Ohio.
“As we age, all hormone levels begin to fall off, which can cause a myriad of health problems in women,” said Hogrefe. “As women, we need to refill our hormone tanks. When you are running on empty, then you are open for disease.”
Hot flashes, sleeplessness, depression, anxiety, fatigue and some thyroid and adrenal problems can be traced to dropping progesterone and estrogen levels in women. Some traditionally-schooled doctors know little about women’s hormone health and the benefits of bioidentical hormone therapy, said Hogrefe, so she formed HHC Consulting. HHC Consulting educates functional medicine doctors--MDs, doctors of osteopathic medicine and obstetricians-- on hormone balancing therapy. She also aims to help doctors integrate bioidentical hormone therapy into patient treatment plans.
Actress Suzanne Somers is known for her television roles as Chrissy Snow on Three’s Company and Carol Lambert on Step By Step. She is the author of 25 books, including two autobiographies, four weight loss books, a book of poetry and multiple books on bioidentical hormones and alternative health care, which include her latest New York Times bestseller, I’m Too Young for This! The Natural Hormone Solution to Enjoy Perimenopause (Harmony, 2013).
A 30-year veteran educator, Hogrefe moved from teaching middle schoolers to middle-aged women after undergoing emergency surgery related to her own hormonal imbalance experience. She opened her business after her pharmacist husband, Jeff Hogrefe, bought the Piqua Consulting and Compounding Lab in 2007, and they realized a need for women and doctors to become educated, empowered and enlightened in the area of natural hormone balance.
Happy Hormone Cottages are located in seven locations: Dayton (Kettering), Ohio; Cincinnati (Mason), Ohio; Centerville, Ohio; Vandalia, Ohio; Crestview Hills, Ky.; and St. Louis (Bridgeton and Chesterfield), Mo.
