You are here because something just isn’t feeling right. You are supposed to be in the prime of life and enjoying your children, spouse, job, and friends, yet something is just out of whack. You don’t feel like you – brain fog, decreased libido, fatigue, weight gain, moodiness – sound familiar? Your friends say you’re just getting old. Your doctor says you’ll be fine, but you’re not fine. You can feel better, look better, and live the life you want by having your hormones balanced, and we can get this done together.

Shawn Tassone, MD, PhD, holds board certifications in both obstetrics/gynecology and integrative medicine. He is a practicing OBGYN, author, speaker, and patient advocate. Dr. Tassone is the author of two books: “Spiritual Pregnancy: Develop, Nurture & Embrace the Journey to Motherhood (Llewellyn Publications, 2014)” and “Hands off My Belly: The Pregnant Woman’s Guide to Surviving, Myths, Mothers, and Moods (Prometheus, 2009).” The former content editor of the women’s health page on About.com, he has written extensively about spirituality in medical care, in publications such as “Psychology Today.”

Currently an instructor in integrative medicine at Arizona State University, he also has been on the faculty at the University of Arizona and the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, teaching residents and medical students. An advocate for the curative powers of whole foods, he believes the human body was made to heal itself and that the medical model should involve more patient-centered care with an active patient and a passive healer.

In his Austin-based OBGYN practice, he instructs his patients on the use of natural therapies as well as those traditionally accepted. His core conviction is in an ACTIVE patient with a PASSIVE physician, meaning we need to learn how to care for ourselves by learning as much as we can about our bodies and health.

NOTE: Forever Health receives fees for administrative and marketing services from practitioners who are part of the Forever Health Practitioner Network. Forever Health provides a network where people like you can connect with BHRT practitioners. We do not provide medical advice or services directly.

NOTE on Insurance: Innovative practitioners and insurance companies have long debated the importance of preventive medicine and services such as BHRT. Due to variations in coverage for novel treatment options, many practitioners will resolve this issue by providing their services on a cash-only basis. Forever Health encourages you to contact the practitioner to determine if any alternative payment options or post-visit reimbursements exist.
