Does it feel like your body has turned against you?

You’re dealing with hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, irritability, mood swings, fatigue, low libido (“Honey, not tonight…or any night”), intense cravings, bloating, weight gain, anxiety, depression. The list goes on and on.

You might be wondering, “Will I ever feel good again?!”

Let me reassure you: the frustrations you feel are common for women over 35.

The good news is: you don’t have to keep suffering.

There are numerous ways to bring your hormones back into balance. You’ve got options. I’d love to be your guide.

“Before I started working with Dr. Anna, I was stuck! I pretty much avoided anything that opened me up to being hurt again after a messy divorce. On top of that, I was experiencing symptoms of menopause that left me feeling tired, and having uncontrollable hot flashes…

I did hormone testing and found I needed hormone replacement. Dr. Anna and my gynecologist worked together to get the right balance and now I am feeling so much better. I have energy and no more afternoon slump. My hot flashes are a thing of the past too and I am feeling great!

I told Dr. Anna I had been looking for her the past ten years because I knew there was someone out there that cared and would have solutions to the things I was facing.

If you are stuck and not sure what’s next, make the investment of time and money in yourself.

It is well worth it and it will make a huge difference in the way you feel. I am so blessed to have her in my life and I love telling people my story and encouraging them to reach out to her.”
