Between your savvy friend who knows everything, the expert at Whole Foods, and the lady who does your hair, you’ve likely heard everything under the sun about hormone replacement therapy in Woodstock – some things true and some things false! Today we’re going to look at the biggest myths and misconceptions we hear about hormone replacement therapy and debunk them once and for all.

  • Myth #1: Local vaginal estrogen and oral estrogen carry the same risks. The fact is that the FDA class labeling requires all products that have the same ingredient in them to have the same warning on them – even if that problem indicated by the warning has never been demonstrated in the product! That’s why the risks associated with oral estrogens are listed on your vaginal estrogen rings, creams, and tablets even though they’ve never been shown to actually have these complications.
  • Myth #2: Bio-identical hormones are “natural”. The only way to get a “natural” bioidentical hormone is to go and eat that soy plant or drink horse urine. Weird? We know. It’s important that you understand that all plant-derived hormone preparations, whether they’re from a commercial or compounding pharmacy, require a chemical process in order to synthesize the final product. Then it can be put into a pill, spray, patch, or cream.

In the future, we’ll explore other myths and misconceptions we frequently hear about hormone replacement therapy. If you have any questions, feel free to call us or stop by one of our convenient locations in Woodstock and Buckhead.

Super exciting to have my husband feel and perform like he was 20 years old again. Thank you to the entire staff at Innovative Health and Wellness.

I had been yo-yo dieting for several years after having kids, trying to lose the extra weight I had gained when pregnant. I tried just about every diet out there and failed at each one of them because they weren't sustainable. I was introduced to the Ketogenic diet in June of 2018 and thats when my weight loss journey truly began. I give credit to Innovative Health & Wellness by keeping me accountable in my weight loss journey with weekly weigh ins, support from the entire team and educated coaching. I'm loving my new lifestyle and finally feel comfortable in my own skin!

“Love this place! Stefania and Valerie at the front desk are so sweet:) They always have smiles on their faces, and are so helpful! I came here at the recommendation of a friend after being rear ended in a wreck, and having awful neck pain. I have to admit I was a little nervous at first because I am a very private person, and it is difficult for me to have people in my personal space, but the whole staff made me feel so comfortable! Dr. Orlando is so kind and gentle. He really puts your mind at ease, and just makes you feel better!!! I don’t know how they do it, but no matter what kind of day I’ve had at work, I always leave this place smiling:) Thanks for taking such great care of me!!!”*

“I have been going to Innovative for almost 7 months for weight loss and it has been an awesome experience! I have lost 60 pounds and definitely could not have done it without the support and encouragement of the staff! I go there every week for weigh-ins and blood pressure checks, and they have become like family to me. They go through my highs and lows with me, and keep me on track. It has been a life-changing experience, and I would highly recommend Innovative if you are ready to lose weight and lead a healthier life!”*
