Wellness Center

Family Practice & Integrative Medicine located
in Columbia, MD

Naturopathic and integrative medicine services at Be The Change Wellness Center can help you achieve and maintain hormonal balance by using holistic therapies to support hormonal health in both
men and women at all stages of life.

Hormonal changes can make you feel like you’re just not yourself.

Whether you’re a woman transitioning through perimenopause and menopause or a man noticing the effects of hormonal changes with age, shifting hormones can disrupt all aspects of your well-being.

Declining hormones with age contribute to symptoms that can range from mood changes and insomnia to decreased libido or challenges with sexual health. Hormonal changes can even put you at an increased risk for some chronic illnesses, such as heart disease and osteoporosis.

Common Symptoms Caused by Hormonal Changes



Mood Swings

Low Libido


Erectile Dysfunction

Dry or Wrinkled Skin

Anxiety or Depression

Loss of Muscle Mass

Factors Contributing to Hormonal Imbalance

While hormonal changes are normal over the course of a lifetime, there are additional factors that can worsen the effects.

● Low-grade inflammation
● Poor gut health
● Nutritional Deficiencies
● Unrecognized Food Sensitivities
● Prolonged or Excessive Stress
● Environmental Toxins

Our Integrative Approach to Hormone Balance

The conventional approach to hormone balance relies primarily on hormone replacement therapy. Rather than prescribing synthetic hormones, we use bioidentical hormones along with other holistic therapies to support you body in achieving natural hormone balance.

Recommended Books for Hormone Balance

We believe that education is empowering and helps you take control of your health! Here are some of our favorite books to learn natural approaches for hormone balance.

Estrogen Matters by Avra Bluming, MD and Carol Tavris, MD

For years, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) was hailed as a miracle. Study after study showed that HRT, if initiated at the onset of menopause, could ease symptoms ranging from hot flashes to memory loss; reduce the risk of heart disease, Alzheimer’s, osteoporosis, and some cancers; and even extend a woman’s overall life expectancy. But when a large study by the Women’s Health Initiative announced results showing an uptick in breast cancer among women taking HRT, the winds shifted abruptly, and HRT, officially deemed a carcinogen, was abandoned.
Now, sixteen years after HRT was left for dead, Dr. Bluming, a medical oncologist, and Dr. Tavris, a social psychologist, track its strange history and present a compelling case for its resurrection. They investigate what led the public — and much of the medical establishment — to accept the Women’s Health Initiative’s often exaggerated claims, while also providing a fuller picture of the science that supports HRT.

The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep, Sex Drive and Vitality Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol

All too often women are told that feeling moody, asexual, tapped out, dried up, stressed out, and sleep deprived is just a part of being female. Or they’re led to believe that the answer can be found only at the bottom of a bottle of prescription pills. Dr. Sara Gottfried, a Harvard educated physician and nationally recognized, board-certified gynecologist, refuses to accept that being a woman means feeling overwhelmed or that popping pills is the new normal. In The Hormone Cure, she shares the unique hormone balancing program that she has used to help thousands of women reclaim wellness, verve, and optimal health.
