The functional approach practiced by Dr. VandenBerg looks at lifestyle, diet, nutrition, stress management, and genetics to ensure optimal functioning for hormone production. Using modern diagnostic testing and natural treatment protocols, Dr. VandenBerg helps to optimize how the body is operating in menopause. The end result is that her patients feel better and more like themselves again!

Any Kitchener-Waterloo area women experiencing symptoms related to menopause, perimenopause or post-menopause are excellent candidates for Dr. VandenBerg’s Hormone Balancing Program.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is one way to quickly and effectively treat the symptoms of menopause, perimenopause, and post-menopause caused by the imbalance of natural hormones. These symptoms are commonly found in women as early as 30 to 40 years of age.
Bioidentical hormones are biologically identical to the hormones your body makes. Whereas conventional hormone therapy uses synthetic or animal-based hormones, bioidentical hormones share the exact molecular structure and have the same physiological effects as the hormones produced by a woman’s ovaries throughout her reproductive years.
Over time, ovarian function naturally declines and women produce fewer hormones. In many women, the resulting hormonal imbalance wreaks havoc on their physical and mental health causing a host of symptoms such as weight gain, acne, irritability, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, insomnia, low sex drive, and memory loss.
Careful prescription of bioidentical hormones can help to recreate hormonal balance, providing relief of symptoms.
Dr. VandenBerg is licensed to prescribe BHRT. She often uses BHRT in conjunction with other natural therapies. With this integrative approach, you get the best of both worlds: hormone replacement for symptom relief, so that you see results quickly, and improvement of underlying function so that you get results that last!
Dr. VandenBerg uses the most modern and effective diagnostic testing to ensure that all treatment programs are individually targeted and safely monitored for her clients.
