(More Coming Soon!) Functional Hormone Therapy
The hormones in your body are a critical component of your overall health. Each hormone interacts with nearly every organ in your body, which means you can’t have a hormone problem without having another health problem.
All too often in both women and men, hormones are not considered in a functional medicine evaluation. This is a significant oversight that we see day in and day out.
While hormones seem to be getting worse and worse in the general population, there is much you can do about balancing your hormones naturally.
Buy why balance your hormones naturally?
- The cost for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy ranges from $1,500 to $3,000 per year.
- Hormone replacement therapies must be adjusted over and over for the rest of your life.
- Hormone replacement therapies do not get to the root cause of why your hormones aren’t balanced in the first place.
That being said, many of my patients come to me already on hormone replacement therapy and still have hormonal imbalances. While there isn’t a “requirement” to stop hormone replacement therapy, often the doses being given are too high or the prescription is “one sided” making the patients hormones imbalance through improper management.
So what if you could balance your hormones naturally? The biggest benefit of trying to balance hormones naturally is that the solution lasts longer and the rest of your body gets healthier too. One of the unique aspects of seeing a natural and holistic practitioner is that each visit over the course of your life makes you healthier, more resilient and more prepared for whatever life throws your way.
Common Symptoms Caused by Hormone Imbalance Include:
Pain With Intercourse
Irregular menstrual cycles
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD)
Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
Most women will at least experience changes in mood in their life if not a variety of other symptoms as hormones change and the body shifts from puberty to the child bearing years to perimenopause to menopause. That is a lot of transitions that not many doctors talk about.
If you are looking for a doctor to help you get through your transitions and hormonal imbalances, please schedule a consultation so that we can personally assess where you are and how we can work together to get your 10 major hormones working together like a concert orchestra rather than feeling more like a 5th grade band concert.
