Hormone Balance

For Better Health Outcomes

Hormones are like the body's messengers, sending signals that regulate virtually every aspect of our health, from our energy levels and mood to our metabolism and immune system. When hormones are balanced, our body systems function harmoniously, leading to optimal health and well-being. However, if there's an imbalance – too much or too little of a hormone – it can disrupt this harmony, causing various health issues. Therefore, maintaining hormone balance is crucial for overall health optimization, ensuring each part of the body works efficiently and in sync with the others.

At Gershon Preventative Medicine, we specialize in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, a sustainable alternative to synthetic hormone therapy. Our approach delivers lasting solutions to maintain hormonal balance.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a common hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age. It is characterized by a combination of symptoms and physical findings that can vary greatly among individuals. The key features of PCOS include:


  • Irregular Menstrual Cycles

  • Facial hair Growth

  • Oily Skin

  • Hair loss and thinning

  • Acne

  • Weight Gain or difficulty losing weight

  • Discolored or Dark Patches of Skin

  • Cystic Ovaries


Utilizing hormone therapy can alleviate these menopausal symptoms and safeguard against the more severe health consequences associated with aging.

What Causes PCOS?

While the exact cause of PCOS is not fully understood, it is known that significant contributing factors include an excess of androgen levels and insulin resistance.  While androgens are often referred to as 'male hormones,' they are naturally present in all women in small quantities. Women with PCOS, however, produce higher levels of these hormones than is typical. This overproduction of androgens interferes with the ovaries' ability to release an egg (ovulation) during each menstrual cycle, contributing to the symptoms and complications associated with PCOS.

Understanding PCOS

PCOS predominantly affects women in their reproductive years, usually emerging in the late teens or early twenties. Without proper treatment, PCOS can lead to various health issues, including diabetes, cardiovascular problems, infertility and endometrial cancer. Moreover, the emotional and psychological impact of PCOS symptoms can significantly affect a woman's quality of life.

We Get Proactive with PCOS

At Gershon Preventative Medicine, we understand the complexity of PCOS and the importance of personalized care. Our approach to managing PCOS utilizes Bioidentical Hormone Replacement and Optimization Therapy, GLP-1 Therapy with compounded Semaglutide, and supplemental protocols, which can be remarkably effective in balancing hormones and alleviating symptoms.

Hormone Therapy for PCOS

At Gershon Preventative Medicine, our PCOS protocols feature a holistic approach, centering around the safe and effective use of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). Recognized for its ability to alleviate symptoms of PCOS  and enhance overall health, BHRT is a cornerstone of our treatment strategy. Our goal is to meticulously assess, balance, and optimize critical hormones, including progesterone and testosterone, to address the unique needs of each patient. Our team of health professionals is not only experienced but also advanced certified in BHRT, ensuring a high standard of care. Every treatment plan is personalized, carefully managed and monitored to help women with PCOS regain their sense of self and well-being.

Compounded Semaglutide for PCOS

There is a definitive link between PCOS and insulin resistance, affecting women with this condition. This imbalance can exacerbate the symptoms of PCOS, such as irregular menstrual cycles, weight gain, and acne. At Gershon Preventative Medicine, we are committed to offering innovative treatments to address these challenges. One notable example is Semaglutide, a medication initially developed for type 2 diabetes, which has demonstrated substantial benefits for individuals with PCOS. This treatment is particularly effective in managing weight and enhancing insulin sensitivity. By incorporating Semaglutide into our comprehensive care plans, we aim to not only improve the immediate symptoms but also address the underlying insulin resistance commonly seen in PCOS.
