Managing Menopause

If you are looking for better management of menopause symptoms, you have come to the right place. The Wright Center for Women’s Health offers a wide selection of alternative services to help you remain happy and healthy in menopause.

Sexual health functioning: With menopause, sexual desire and satisfaction can decrease due to hormonal and anatomical changes. Your provider can discuss how you may benefit from PRP or vaginal laser therapy to improve sexual functioning and increase sexual satisfaction in menopause.

Hormone optimization: It is normal that as you age, your hormones become less optimal, leading to symptoms of fatigue, decreased mental ability, mood changes, low libido, and increased weight gain. At the Wright Center, we believe in helping you combat the “normal” aging process so that you not only feel your best, but you can also decrease your risk for chronic disease as you age.

Preventative care: Aging healthy entails being proactive with screening services. The Wright Center’s speciality is executive level testing that gives you the most information regarding your health and risks. Your provider will also discuss preventative services suggested in menopause.

Call 630-687-9595 today to schedule your appointment so that you may best manage menopause.

From now through February 28th, if your spouse completes their first BioTE pelleting procedure in the month of February, both you and your spouse will receive a FREE bottle of DIM.

If both spouses can’t make it into The Wright Center for their BioTE treatment, and only one partner is able to visit us, they can take a free bottle of DIM home for their spouse, along with their free bottle.

If you and your spouse have not yet done BioTE Hormone Treatment at The Wright Center, you can schedule your appointment today for the two of you. If you’re a previous BioTE guest at The Wright Center, and you’re wanting another treatment done, schedule your appointment today with your spouse.

Are You Tired of Being Tired?

It happens to all of us.

As we reach our mid to late 30s our bodies begin to change. Some of the changes we can deal with, but for the most part, these changes don’t really strengthen our quality of life or overall well-being.

Many of these changes are brought on by disruptions to our hormonal makeup. They include but are not limited to:

  • feeling constantly tired
  • weight gain
  • urinary incontinence
  • irregular bowel movements
  • sweating
  • diminished sexual desire

Until the last few years, traditional synthetic hormone replacement was seen as one of the only treatment options for hormonal imbalance. At The Wright Center, however, we’ve moved from traditional treatment methods to a new system called BioTe Therapy.

What is BioTe Therapy?

Developed by medical pioneer and expert, Dr. Gary Donovitz, BioTE® Therapy was designed to deliver the right kind of hormone (biologically identical) in the right amounts (doses based on accurate testing and proper analysis of the results) using the right delivery system (pellets – which deliver straight into the bloodstream whenever the body needs it). Benefits of BioTE include:

  • Regain your healthy sense of well-being.
  • Rediscover your mental focus and clarity.
  • Ignite your passion with improved libido.
  • Protection against heart disease and stroke.
  • Relief of menopause and PMS symptoms.
  • Prevention of osteoporosis, senility and Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Improvement of cholesterol levels, muscle mass and strength.

If you’re dealing with what you think may be hormonal imbalance, we invite you to schedule an appointment with one of our partners to learn more.

Curcumin SF

All curcumins are not created equal. Although used for centuries as an ingredient in Asia, most forms are poorly absorbed in the bloodstream, whether coming from food or a nutritional supplement. Curcumin-SF has a 29x greater absorption rate compared to ordinary curcumin.
When taken daily, Curcumin-SF helps maintain a healthy inflammatory response throughout the body. Curcumin enhances the activity of the COMT enzyme, which helps metabolize estrogen via methylation (the main way gene activity is adjusted during life!) in both men and women. In turn, it protects cells from DNA damage from improper estrogen metabolism.

Iodine+

The thyroid gland takes the iodine you ingest and converts it into two hormones—thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). T4 and T3 regulate our body’s metabolism of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Every cell in the body depends on T3 and T4, so if it doesn’t have enough, it isn’t functioning well. Iodine+ also contains two other essential ingredients—selenium and zinc. Selenium and zinc are also needed to help with the formation of active thyroid hormone T3.
When taken daily, Iodine+ provides the body with a substantial amount of iodine to promote healthy hormone production. Moreover, iodine supports healthy breast tissue by up-regulating proteins involved in estrogen metabolism.
 Even healthy eaters may be at risk. Some foods can cause a relative iodine deficiency by binding to iodine, which can make the bound iodine inaccessible for thyroid hormone production. These foods include broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, kale, soy, peanuts, pine nuts, turnips, and rutabaga, although cooking these foods tends to make them less apt to do this.

Omega 3+ CoQ10

Research has established the critical role of omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA in supporting cardiovascular health and blood vessel elasticity. The compound Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an intracellular (meaning present in your cells) antioxidant that’s essential for the health of tissues and organs. It particularly benefits those cells that are most metabolically active, such as those in the heart muscle.
When taken daily, Omega 3+ CoQ10 promotes normal heart function, blood vessel function, and brain health. The DHA and EPA are extracted from the purest fish oil sources available through molecular distillation to ensure the removal of cholesterol and contaminants, including PCBs and heavy metals. CoQ10 is stored in the mitochondria—your cell’s power source—where one of its primary functions is to generate energy for the cells. Because your body’s natural production of CoQ10 tends to decrease as you age, combining CoQ10 with pure fish oil helps your body absorb and use CoQ10 better!

Arterosil

The endothelial glycocalyx is the protective non-stick lining of your veins and arteries that inhibits cholesterol and other particles from adhering to or penetrating the endothelial wall. It is a delicate structure that can be damaged under many conditions, such as high blood glucose, oxidative stress, and inflammation. When taken daily, arterosil HP delivers the building blocks necessary to help strengthen the artery wall’s protective barrier and may help support healthy circulation, skin, and sexual function.

Methyl Factors Plus

Methylation is a biochemical process that impacts the body’s ability to regulate cardiovascular, neurological, reproductive, and detoxification systems. Unfortunately, the nutrients needed for the methylation process are nearly impossible to get from the average American diet, mainly due to the abundance of processed foods and the loss of nutrients in our soil.
When taken daily, METHYL FACTORS+ provides five essential methylation nutrients—methylfolate (5-MTHF), active B6, active B2, active methyl B12, and betaine—in their most bioavailable forms. One of methylation’s most important roles in the body is keeping homocysteine levels in check. Homocysteine is a common amino acid in your blood. Maintaining a desirable level of homocysteine is one of the leading biomarkers for the maintenance of good cardiovascular health. Preventing an undesirable homocysteine level is also associated with the maintenance of bone, female reproductive, cognitive, and neurological health.

ADK 5 & 10

ADK combines vitamin K2, A, and D3, and features the most bioavailable and bioactive forms of vitamin D3 available. This kind of vitamin D3 is the identical form that is derived in the body from cholesterol and synthesized by sunlight on the skin. Studies have confirmed the safety and efficacy of vitamin D for bone, immune, and heart health.
Osteocalcin is a protein that assists with remodeling our bones by both reabsorbing older bone and laying down new healthy bone. Vitamin D3, the “sunshine vitamin,” is vital in producing osteocalcin. However, D3 needs help from vitamin K2, a cofactor that is essential to the bone-strengthening process. Vitamin A supports these two vitamins, as well as the immune system and a healthy heart.

When taken daily, ADK 5 and 10 promotes the positive effects of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and may help maintain normal bone strength.

BioTE Hormone Therapy, the Coronavirus Pandemic and You

If you’re a guest of The Wright Center for Women’s health, chances are you’ve heard us talking about BioTe® Therapy hormone optimization. 

BioTE is designed to deliver biologically identical hormones in the exact and proper amounts determined by our accurate testing and expert analysis of the results. According to patients of this groundbreaking hormone therapy, benefits can include:

  • Boosting immune system health
  • Protecting against respiratory illness
  • Rediscovering mental focus and clarity
  • Protecting against heart disease and stroke
  • Relieving of menopausal and PMS symptoms
  • Preventing osteoporosis, senility and Alzheimer’s disease
  • Improving cholesterol levels, muscle mass and strength

BioTE and Coronavirus

As we continue to navigate our way through the current Coronavirus pandemic we believe BioTE® Therapy to be more important than ever. Why? Because many of the BioTE products contain immune system enhancements such as testosterone and thyroid optimizers — both of which aid the body in creating a healthy immune system. 

Further, BioTE nutraceuticals also contain Vitamins A and D and Zinc, which can help the body defend against respiratory illness.  

BioTE is administered to our patients in a pellet delivery process, which requires office visits for safe and effective injection directly into the bloodstream. For those concerned about whether these treatments are considered an essential service during the pandemic we believe they are and we will continue to see our BioTE patients during this time.

We are also accepting new BioTE patients and may conduct telehealth visits for initial consultations and before comprehensive blood work analysis is ordered.

If you are a current BioTE patient please know The Wright Center is taking all precautionary steps to keep you safe during your visits, including recommended social distancing guidelines, pre-health screenings for patients before they enter the building and staff members fitted with all necessary personal protective equipment.
