Are your symptoms of Premenstrual Syndrome affecting your quality of life?
PMS is something most women experience at one time or another. Symptoms can range from mild, such as light cramps, to severe, where some women struggle to complete basic, daily activities.
Estrogen dominance is a common cause of PMS symptoms. This is when the body production of estrogen is too high and the progesterone levels are too low. Low thyroid levels can also be present.
Hormonal imbalance can affect a woman’s mood, energy level and relationships with others. Balancing these hormones properly will decrease these unwanted symptoms.
PMS can be diagnosed with testing of hormone levels or using symptoms alone.
Many women tolerate the symptoms of PMS thinking their only hope is that menopause will come early and give them relief. Don’t wait, help is available now!
Most Gynecologists treat PMS symptoms with birth control pills or in severe cases a hysterectomy. Synthetic hormones like birth control pills can increase your risk of blood clots, stroke, and even cancer. Even though a hysterectomy will take the symptoms away, it causes menopause which brings on many other unwanted symptoms of its own. The good news is there is a safer, less severe treatment that will relieve symptoms of PMS.
Estrogen dominance is very responsive to treatment with bioidentical progesterone therapy.
Bioidentical hormones are molecularly the same as the hormones your body produces and the body responds to them just as it would your natural hormones. Side effects are minimal when monitored properly by a trained physician. Bioidentical hormones are tailored to give you the smallest dose possible to raise your estrogen or progesterone levels to an optimal range. There is a wide range of ways it can be administered: patches, creams, tablets, and suppositories. These options will be discussed with you during your visit.

The Flowers group has been a life saver! They have helped me over come 7 years of illness in almost 4 months! So thankful for all of their knowledge and the compassion they have for their patients.
After years (decades) of thinking I was healthy (read: macho American male), and frustration of bad hormone levels, I became a patient of Dr. Flowers. In my fourth month of treatment, my body chemistry is within normal ranges, I have lost over 30 lbs., I have noticeably more energy, and am motivated to exercise every day. I am excited to see what I can be after year under Dr. Flowers care.
I’ve been seeing Dr. Flowers for about 9 months and I love the personal attention I get from him and the office staff! I am never rushed out nor have I ever had the “next” feeling you get with so many traditional Doctors’ offices these days. I love the more natural whole body approach to healing and would recommend him to anyone!
Dr Flowers and His nurse, Misty, are an amazing team. They are thorough, responsive and do an exceptional job of educating you so that you are motivated to be an active participant in your Plan of care. This is the first time my hormones have been balanced since before my total hysterectomy in 2004. I've suffered with severe migraine headaches since age 9 and have tried everything from medicines to acupuncture. After 4 months of HRT and herbal therapies with Dr Flowers my headaches are few and far between a 90% improvement. I'm still on the journey but there is not doubt that my quality of life has improved.
Love the welcoming atmosphere created by the staff and Dr. Flowers.
They gave me hope that I would be overcoming my issues and feeling better soon.
I love the individual attention I received from Dr. Flowers and the time he allotted for my visit.
There is a lot of one on one time with both Doctor and Nurses and I feel that my concerns and comments are heard.
liked the personal attention given by Misty and Dr. Flowers. I appreciated the hour block of time where I could sit down and really go over all the lab results and treatment plan. Never felt rushed. Always feel like
