In addition to providing support for general adult health conditions, the doctors at Tara Natural Medicine also provide care specific to womens’ needs. These include well-woman exams (breast exam and pap smear), and treatment for abnormal pap smears, gynecological infections, fertility issues, menstrual disorders, and menopausal symptoms.
The doctors also are able to prescribe hormones when necessary for menopausal complaints, hormone imbalances, or birth control. Dr. Levy and Dr. Lutrin are experts in using bio-identical hormone therapy (BHRT) to support women through the menopausal transition. Bio-identical hormones are compounded uniquely for each individual, and provide hormones that are identical in structure to those found in the human body. In order to restore optimal function to the body, bio-identical hormones may be prescribed for a period of time.
In addition to using bio-identical hormones for menopause, the doctors also use bio-identical thyroid hormones (armour thyroid or naturethroid) in their treatment of thyroid dysfunction.
