BEMC Discusses Hormone Replacement Therapy at 2019 Holistic Health Fair

Happy New Year, BEMC readers! Our very own Maria Gahry, DNP, RN, FNP-BC, kicked off 2019 presentations this past Saturday during the (sold out) Holistic Health Fair at St. Luke’s Hospital. 

She was one of several other experts that spoke during the presentation portion of the health fair. Attendees were able to listen to health and wellness topics presented by experts in a wide variety of Holistic Health Services including:

Chinese Herbs


Sound Therapy



Holistic Chiropractic Care

Alternative Physical Therapy

Holistic Massage Therapy

Holistic Heart Health

Holistic Nutrition

Naturopathic Medicine

Holistic Women’s Health

Maria specifically discussed Integrative Approaches to Hormone Replacement Therapy - starting with the basics of hormones, signs/symptoms of a hormonal disorder, causes, environmental disrupters, etc.  

She went on to explain several treatment options often used for hormonal imbalances, including both medical and non-medical treatments. 

Some of the non-medical treatments she touched on were reducing toxicity, improving diet, implementing herbal remedies, working on sleep, and optimizing the thyroid (thyroid balance = mother of balancing ALL other hormones)

As a practitioner that specializes in thyroid health, Maria emphasized the importance of using bio-identical hormones whenever a medical treatment is warranted and the role that nutrients and herbs can play in maintaining hormonal function. 

The presentation ended with a messaging that I think most of us can easily forget when battling a health concern: a great starting point for addressing any health issue is to examine toxicity and lifestyle issues.
