Depression is common, and the number of people diagnosed with this disorder increases by 20 percent each year. Sadly, over 80 percent of those afflicted with depression get no treatment. But among those who take antidepressants, many find they don’t work―even after trying multiple prescriptions. Why is depression so difficult to treat? When you have a physical problem, it’s usually possible to link it to a specific cause with reasonable certainty. The cause of depression, however, can’t be identified by x-rays or blood tests or any other determinative method. SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors), the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant, are formulated on the assumption that your brain needs more serotonin and work by stimulating production of this “feel-good” neurotransmitter. But what if the assumption is wrong? New research suggests a different causative factor underlying depression. Could this discovery provide the key to more effective treatments for depression?

“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!”
