An Opportunity to Support Central Florida's Most Vulnerable Families

Written by Lisa Beaury. Posted in Events,

Fleet Farming is a bike-pedaled urban agriculture program which converts underutilized lawn space into micro-farms called “farmlettes”.  A percentage of the crop goes back to the owner, but the remainder of the produce is distributed to local restaurants and farmers markets in order to stimulate the local economy by keeping the revenue in the neighborhood and creating job opportunities. Healing Alternatives is joining in the effort to fund-raise for this non-profit group, as well as participate "hands-on" in the building of this garden.

The Remington Inn is home to some of Central Florida’s most needy families.  This is often a transition housing option right before homelessness.  By investing in this project, the children and families there will have an option for healthy food and the experience of growing it themselves.

For some articles on the Remington Inn:

The Weekly Challenger 

Daily Mail

Project Proposal: 

Adding raised beds to the center courtyard of the Remington Inn & Suites located in Altamonte Springs, and planning seasonal curriculum for a gardening program. Please visit the link Remington Inn Garden Proposal for a complete description of the program.


Donation Page

Please specifically write "Remington Inn" for each donation so we can track how much is coming in for this specific build. There is a space for notes directly on the page and anyone filling out the page can write Remington inn.

Join us for a Conversation on Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

Written by Lisa Beaury. Posted in Events,

Do you have questions about Bioidentical Hormones?  Join us for a presentation by Dr. Kathleen MacIsaac.  She will discuss bioidentical hormones and our newest offering, hormone pellets.

Date: June 24, 2015         Time: 6p-7p

Place: Healing Alternatives, 125 West Pineview Street, #1009, Altamonte Springs, FL 32714

Please RSVP:  407-682-7111 or LisaB@HealingAlternativesInc.com Or use our Facebook Event:  https://www.facebook.com/events/691882960940336/  




What are the most common problems reported by patients in mid-life? Lack of energy, weight gain, memory decline, mood swings, loss of libido, hot flashes, insomnia…..These are issues for both men and women. In spite of proper diet and exercise, there is no question that our bodies change as we age. One key factor in this metamorphosis is hormone decline.

Our hormones, such as thyroid hormone, insulin, cortisol, estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, and growth hormone act as messengers to our tissues, commanding them to perform their respective roles efficiently. As hormone levels decline, the integrity of the body also declines, and we witness some of the common degenerative disorders of aging.

One way to help combat this decline is to replace the missing hormones with specially compounded bio-identical hormones. These hormones are prepared by expert compounding pharmacists, using plant or natural sources, and are physiologically and biochemically identical to those once made by the body. Since the body recognizes these substances as “self,” they are metabolized and utilized naturally, unlike some synthetic pharmaceutical substances. Testing for hormone levels is done with serum or saliva, and the appropriate dosing is determined. The method of delivery varies from oral to inserted pellets to topical creams and/or injectables. The goal is to replace the hormones levels to more youthful physiologic ranges. The result is a perceived improved state of well-being, as well as stronger bones, brain, cardiovascular system and metabolism.


We Also Offer Hormone Pellets

Pellet implants are compounded bio-identical hormones that are surgically implanted into the patient for Hormone Replacement Therapy.  Pellets are tiny cylinders that are inserted into a numb area of subcutaneous fat, typically the hip or the abdomen, using a trocar.  This dosage form is one of the most physiologic dosage forms available and can last around 3-6 months, depending on the patient.

Pellets can be made using estradiol or testosterone.  Dosing is determined by Dr. Kathleen MacIsaac based on lab results and reported symptoms. 

Symptoms that Hormone Replacement Therapy may be right for you:

Menopause Symptoms

  • Hot flashes
  • Night Sweats
  • Insomnia
  • Weight Gain
  • Headaches
  • Low Libido
