We Look at How Your Hormones are “Functioning” and Your Specific Needs to Promote Overall Hormone Health and Wellness
Many of us are suffering from symptoms because of a body that is out of balance. Changes occur in our bodies that limit our activities and quality of life. These changes occur due to aging, toxicity in our bodies, malnutrition—yes, here in middle-class America—and poor lifestyle choices. When our hormones are out of balance, many symptoms are possible:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Mood swings
- Mental fogginess, poor memory
- Incontinence, urinary frequency
- Headaches, migraines
- Decreased sexual response/libido
- Loss of ambition or drive
- Heavy bleeding/cramping
- Breast tenderness/fibrocystic breasts
- Weight gain
- Cold hands and feet
- Chronic Fatigue
- Decreased stamina, energy
- Poor muscle tone
- Hair loss
However, the body has a natural desire to be in balance. Through individualized testing and a holistic approach, we can find the ingredients necessary to achieve that balance.
Non-invasive saliva panels are utilized to find where in the cycle (for both men and women) that the problems are occurring. Once we find your personal pattern, a strategy can be formulated. We will then design a personalized recommendation of herbal and homeopathic natural hormone replacement solutions.
In addition, our bodies need proper nutrition in order to stay in balance. With our quick-paced, on-the-run eating habits, it is very easy to think we are eating better than we are and overlook some essentials in our diet. The thyroid, adrenals, pancreas, and other hormone glands work together as a team. They are all pulling together to achieve a balanced, resilient hormone system, but each one uses different nutritional “tools” to do its job. For example, the thyroid is mineral dependent. It primarily needs calcium and iodine. The adrenals, on the other hand, require more B vitamins, as well as vitamin C and E. Each organ of the endocrine system must have the nutritional support that it needs so it can carry its share of the load in keeping the body healthy. Nutrition Response Testing® is the method we utilize to find the precise elements that your body needs.
If we are putting proper vitamins and minerals in our bodies but the digestive system cannot absorb the nutrients, we still won’t receive the results we are desiring. Most minerals are absorbed in a more acidic stomach environment, so digestion can play a part in effectively supplying a healthy, functioning endocrine system. A good purification program is an excellent way to get the digestive system functioning at an optimal level so the body will absorb all the good stuff we are putting in it. Purification will also help to rid the body of wastes due to the use of hormone crèmes and therapies.
And, last but not least, we need time. Rebuilding a body that has been harmed by poor eating and a hectic lifestyle doesn’t happen overnight. Some people will try to use a short-term fix that will give them more energy, better sleep, etc. for a while. Most of these approaches are just pushing reactions to get immediate relief from a symptom. Lasting relief comes from building the body where long-lasting changes can occur.
If you are experiencing some of the symptoms listed above and feel that natural hormone replacement may be right for you, please call for a free consultation. We will do our best to help reverse the aging process and get you back to functioning optimally.
