How to get started on Physiologic Restoration

Before You Begin

1. If you are peri-menopausal and have not entered into menopause yet, or you are just having problems with your menstrual cycle, we recommend you consult your doctor to see if PR (Physiologic Restoration) is right for you.

2. If your doctor does not prescribe PR, you may find a doctor here.

3. Ask your doctor about baseline blood tests to determine your hormonal health before starting any hormone protocol. If you are over 40 you might not need blood tests, however this will be decided by your practitioner.

Dosing Instructions

The amount of hormone you apply to attain your optimum rhythmic cycle of dosing is documented on your prescription and may be adjusted by your practitioner as you get balanced. The manner in which you track your dosing will be as follows:

Personal Calendar

  • If you are still cycling with your period on a regular basis, use the Personal Calendar included with your hormones from one of our partner pharmacies. The first day of your period is “Day 1.”

Lunar Calendar

  • If you are menopausal and not cycling, or have had a hysterectomy, then it is recommended that you follow the cycles of the moon with the Lunar Calendar, included with your hormones from one of our partner pharmacies.

  • Peak estrogen occurs on day twelve (12). This is always the full moon and we count back 12 days for day 1.

  • Peak progesterone occurs on day twenty one (21).

  • This is all worked out for you. Learn more when you read the WHN PR booklet supplied by our pharmacy partners.

Assessing your progress

Once you are using your hormones regularly, your doctor will monitor your success in the following ways:

1. Evaluate the clinical symptoms that you document on the calendars provided.

2. Once you are using your hormones regularly, your doctor will monitor your success in the following ways:

  • Blood testing helps your practitioner learn about your symptoms and adjust your protocol accordingly for your optimum health. Our goal is to mimic the hormone blood levels of a healthy young woman in her 20’s. Blood testing helps your practitioner learn about any symptoms and adjust your dose accordingly.

  • Tests are done after your first three months, and we test on the peak days.

  • Estradiol testing on day 12 (check Progesterone also)

  • Progesterone testing on day 21 (check Estradiol also)
