We work with you to optimize thyroid function in order to maximize improvement of your symptoms and condition.
The body has two adrenal glands, one located above each kidney. Hormones secreted by these endocrine glands help to regulate many body processes. The adrenal glands and HPA axis can become depleted and dysregulated after a long period of emotional stress or chronic illness. Through the use of an individualized lifestyle and nutrient therapy plan, we hope to help you along the path to heal this imbalance.
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement (BHRT)
Individuals over the age of 30 can begin to experience hormone imbalance. Over our lifetime, many factors (environmental, stress, genetics) contribute to the natural decline or imbalance of hormones as we age. In order to balance your hormones for optimal health and wellness, we will use comprehensive lab testing and in-depth evaluation for your personalized treatment plan.
Food Sensitivity and Stool Testing
Food sensitivity testing can aid in the structuring of elimination diets that may relieve symptoms like abdominal pain, excessive/painful gas, diarrhea, constipation, gastric reflux, or IBS. IgG antibodies are present in all body fluids and serve as a first line of defense against infection and may have subtle immune effects, ranging from gastrointestinal bloating and nausea to headaches, mood changes, and fatigue. Unknowingly, people may continue to eat “offending” foods, not connecting delayed reactions to the foods eaten perhaps hours or days before. By measuring IgG antibodies specific to antigenic food proteins, it is possible to identify which foods may be responsible for hard-to-define symptoms.
Organic Acid Testing
Organic acids testing is diagnostic tool that can help identify underlying causes of a variety of chronic illnesses, including digestive issues like gas, bloating, diarrhea, and constipation, neuropsychiatric disorders like depression and anxiety, and neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s disease.
Environmental Toxicity Testing
There is research that links environment toxicity to a myriad of chronic health disorders from chronic fatigue, mental health challenges, autism, immune deficiencies, hormone disorders, as well as heart, metabolic, and neurological diseases. We use a toxic chemical profile that screens for the presence of 172 different toxic chemicals including organophosphate pesticides, phthalates, benzene, xylene, vinyl chloride, pyrethroid insecticides, acrylamide, perchlorate, diphenyl phosphate, ethylene oxide, acrylonitrile, and more.
Heavy Metal Testing
Heavy metals toxicity caused by increasing levels of pollution and use of chemicals in industry is a growing threat to our health. High levels of toxic metals deposited in body tissues and subsequently in the brain, may cause significant neurological damage.
A Metals Hair Test is ideal for checking current exposure to toxic metals. Hair provides important information that can assist the practitioner with an early diagnosis of physiological disorders associated with aberrations in essential and toxic element metabolism.
As the years pass, our strength can decline and we can become more sedentary. I have found that Baby Boomers do not always accept this reality. Instead, they come in requesting services for optimizing health. Through advanced diagnostic testing, targeted nutrient therapy, and hormone balancing, we are able to overcome common obstacles and provide leading-edge preventive strategies to help you be stronger and healthier as you age.
Natural Weight Solutions
Most fad diets create false results by using methods that metabolically force the body to lose lean muscle mass and water. Our programs are individualized after thorough clinical assessments of nutrition, exercise, chemical burden, thyroid, and hormone balance. This provides a life style change that is lasting.
