“Women need to get passionate about taking charge of their health," said Hogrefe. "If they do nothing, then today is the best day they are going to have.”
Dayton, OHIO (PRWEB) July 02, 2014
Happy Hormone Cottage, LLC of Kettering, Ohio has opened a Piqua office to help women balance their hormones and improve their health, announced founder and chief executive officer Lyn Hogrefe today.
The office, which will be housed in the Piqua Consulting and Compounding Lab in Piqua at 649 W. High St., is the fifth wellness cottage to open in the past five years. Other Happy Hormone cottages are located in Kettering, Vandalia and Mason, Ohio, and Crestview Hills, Ky.
More than 5,000 Midwestern women have questioned traditional doctors’ diagnoses about their aging symptoms and been tested and treated by Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy(BHRT) through Happy Hormone Cottage.
“As women age and hormone levels begin to fall, they need to begin refilling their hormone tanks in order to maintain a good quality of life,” said Hogrefe. “Traditionally-trained doctors don’t often know that.
"Functional medical doctors do. Estrogen performs 300 jobs in the body and as we reach 50 years old, we don’t have much estrogen left. So a good question for women to start asking is, without balanced hormones, how will those jobs get done?”
Lily Peters of Union, a high-energy, 59-year old realtor, said she noticed her energy flagging and libido falling when she was 51 years old. A German exchange student staying at her home told Peters her mother used bioidentical hormones back in Germany. BHRT has been used by European women safely for 25 to 30 years.
Peters began to research her symptoms and search for a solution to her anxiety about aging.
“I had always been a person who could do three to four things at once and be very effective,” said Peters. “Then the bottom dropped out of my life and by 7 p.m., I was exhausted. My body had nothing more to give. My hormone tank was empty. Now I feel twenty years younger and have a lot of energy. We are so fortunate to have advocates for women’s health in Ohio like Lyn. I feel this is the natural way to go: listen to your body and do your research.”
Women can attend a free initial consultation at any of the five Happy Hormone Cottages and have their hormone levels tested. After meeting with a nurse practitioner, a compounded, personalized prescription of hormone creams containing biestrogen, progesterone and testosterone will then be created for each woman based on her hormone needs.
Prescriptions are filled at the Piqua Consulting and Compounding Lab, which uses a high-tech, Resodyne mixer to mix compounded, therapeutic prescriptions for hormone therapy, pain management, and creative drug delivery systems.
“We need to educate ourselves on our health and own our journeys to wellness,” said Hogrefe. “Women need to get passionate about taking charge of their health. If they do nothing, then today is the best day they are going to have.”
Hogrefe has written Own Your Journey to Optimal Hormone Balance(New Leaf Press, April, 2014), a book on her personal journey to wellness through BHRT. She is also a speaker, educator and blogger on women’s hormone health. The book is available on the Happy Hormone Cottage website and in all its office locations.
A book signing will be held on Tuesday, July 15 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Nonnie Waller’s Cross Pointe Town Center, 1010 E. Alex-Bell Road in Centerville.
