“I am a busy professional. I was fatigued. I started having hot flashes and night sweats at night and did not sleep well. My memory got foggy. I needed to be sharp for my job. I could not put in the 14 hour days needed. I found out I was in menopause. I wanted to do bio-identical hormone therapy. I am on it now and I feel great. My energy and memory are intact. I go into a deep sleep at night. I have sent friends to Virginia Integrative Practice and all of us have gotten well.” K.C.
“I could not sleep and instead sweat profusely. I was fatigued and it was affecting my professional job at the embassy. My mom died of breast cancer so I did not know what to do. I was told I was in menopause. Given my history, the doctor put me on an herbal protocol. They knew about genetic counseling and specifics on estrogen metabolism. I was tested to see how I processed estrogen and put on a treatment plan. My symptoms have resolved and I am alive again. I was impressed the doctors really knew their stuff where issues of breast cancer and menopause were addressed. I was better within weeks. I highly recommend Virginia Integrative Practice. I received safe and effective treatment.” Martina
