Our Reputation


"I was experiencing many and varied symptoms from menopause that greatly reduced my quality of life. I was having extreme hot flashes for 6 years since I abruptly stopped taking Premarin in 2002. I also found myself waking up

around 2 a.m. every night, unable to go back to sleep. I took benadryl, melatonin, ambien, and xanax. They either no longer worked or I was afraid to take them long term.

"For at least 6 years I did not sleep through the night. I am a health care professional and I found that I did not concentrate as well as in the past, and I often thought my career was in jeopardy of being shortened.

"On my first visit to Dr. Rebecca Ryder in 2008 I was comforted by the fact that she took a scientific approach to bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. I had lab work done that showed I was truly deprived of Vitamin D, DHEA, estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Dr. Ryder took the time to explain to me the important functions these substances played in the body.

"I also felt comfortable with buying progesterone in the form of Prometrium and estrogen in the form of estradiol from my neighborhood pharmacist.

"On the 10th day following hormone treatment by Dr. Ryder I woke up unbelievably refreshed after sleeping like a baby all night. I have not had a sleepless night since 2008. I have a new lease on life! My energy level has greatly improved and I have much more enthusiasm to take on daily tasks. My mental state is 180 degrees improved on most days!”

"I also began taking vitamin D3 at Dr. Ryder's suggestion and I have had only a couple of slight colds since 2008. In the past I was a frequent victim of bronchitis and sinusitis that required antibiotics. Now I feel my immune system is much improved.

"I can't say enough good things about the improvement of my quality of life since seeing Dr. Ryder at Synergy. I continue to enjoy my work when I had mentally already written my resignation in 2008. Thanks, Dr. Ryder!"
