A lot of things get blamed on hormones—some things that should and some that shouldn’t. But if you’ve been struggling with your weight despite a strict diet and exercise regime, you may be able to add weight gain to the “things that should” list. Hormones directly affect how your body responds to outside stimuli (people, activities and exercise, foods, you name it). They also directly affect your metabolism. So it stands to reason that if your hormones are out of balance, you could be having issues with dieting and weight as well. If you are trying to diet and experiencing cravings and mood swings, then you’re most likely not going to stay on that diet for very long—especially if you’re not seeing results. Eating nutritiously, exercising, and getting your hormones into balance will all help your ability to maintain a healthy weight. And a customized treatment plan that focuses on whole-body health, rather than a one-size-fits-all diet plan, has a much better chance at success. Read more…
“Dr. Schultz is extremely thorough with diagnosis and treatment while her testing is extensive. She has a wealth of knowledge about hormone replacement and areas relating to this. Her bedside manner is refreshing and she never rushes you out of her office. If you have ever considered looking into hormone replacement you would be well advised to start with Dr. Schultz first”

“Within one week of starting HRT it felt like a thick, heavy fog was lifted from my life. I was able to get a full, restful night of sleep. With the addition of testosterone pellets my energy level, zest for life and libido went from good to fantastic!!! I feel balanced , grounded and very happy most days!”
“Since I became a patient of Dr. Schultz and FINALLY found someone who could balance my hormones, I HAVE FELT BETTER THAN I DID WHEN I WAS 20!!! I swear this is true!! Because of her diagnostic genius, the level of bioidentical hormones she has fine-tuned to my individual needs have changed my life and restored me to be the best “me” I can be! Dr. Schultz is not just a doctor, I call her my HEALER 🙂 She LISTENS to me, she educates me and encourages me to take good care of myself and to make good choices, and then she allows me to make my own decisions and choices, because she respects that I am an intelligent adult and the expert on my own 58-year-old body. She treats me as a peer and her PARTNER in maintaining my own wellness, and she respects and cares about me! Our appointments start and end with a hug, and I leave her office feeling uplifted, understood, inspired, strengthened and healed in body mind and spirit. She is very holistic, understanding that we are not just a cluster of symptoms, but that in order to have healthy bodies we must also address our issues, belief systems, and thoughts. Dr. Schultz is a wise and wonderful teacher and I am blessed to have her on my path:) And her staff is awesome too!”
