“My intimacy has increased significantly and is as enjoyable as it was 20 years ago! Plus I dropped 10 stubborn pounds. At 53 years old, I feel 30 again.”But that wasn’t the case until I reached out to Synergy.

Before coming under Dr. Rebecca Ryder’s care I was miserable. I was having trouble sleeping; I felt tired all the time; I was irritable; and I had no interest in sexual intimacy.

“When I told this to my gynecologist, she recommended a ‘one-size-fits-all’ estrogen patch.

“Luckily, a friend told me about Dr. Ryder and her bioidentical hormone replacement clinic. Through extensive blood work, she was able to determine what I was lacking in hormones, vitamins, and nutrients.

“Now, my life has greatly improved! I have more energy, have better moods, and feel stronger in my daily workout routines.”Dr. Ryder has a very relaxed nature and is easy to talk with. She is well-educated in the field of women’s health, bioidentical hormone therapy, and holistic care.

“To any woman who may be hesitant about hormone therapy, I say Go For It! Our bodies are amazing machines, but sometimes they need a little tune-up to keep things in line. 🙂 One size DOES NOT fit all.”

“I had been having severe menopause symptoms and was miserable. The hot flashes throughout the day and night were the worst. After suffering for two years I knew I had to do something.

“I went to my family doctor and my previous gynecologist for help. Neither one of these physicians believed in treating their patients with any type of hormones. Both physicians told me to try the natural herbal vitamin Black Cohosh.

“A friend of mine in Hampton knew I was miserable and she told me about Dr. Linda Long and how she was treating her patients with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. I liked the idea that it was all natural and safer than the regular hormones.

“Dr. Long’s bio-identical hormone treatment has made me feel like I’m in my 30’s again!

“I have a lot of energy, I feel young and healthy, I’ve lost weight, and I am able to get a good night’s sleep. I feel like myself again, and my husband’s happier too.”Dr. Long is very knowledgeable in treating her patients with bio-identical hormones. She monitors my hormone levels on a regular basis to make sure everything is in check. I have recommended her to several friends and they are all pleased with the outcome.”

“Synergy has changed my life tremendously. I no longer fall asleep at 8 or 9 p.m. and I have much more energy to exercise and accomplish all that I need to throughout my day.”I contacted Synergy and set up an appointment after reading about them in a women’s newspaper ad. Out of the symptoms I had been experiencing for some time, two of my concerns were extreme fatigue and a tendency towards cold body temperature. I had already visited my primary care physician and an osteopath with no results.

“Synergy’s integrative medical approach had the answer. I have great confidence in the health care I’ve received there. It all started with a thorough medical exam and the doctor spending a lot of time discussing my symptoms and concerns. She now closely monitors my hormone therapy treatments with blood tests and other methods that make my improved health a breeze.

“I am so thankful for finally finding someone who could help me feel better.”
