Perimenopause & Menopausal Imbalances
Hormonal changes are common starting at age 35 and sometimes earlier. You could have changes in your menstrual cycle, hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, fatigue and/or trouble with your sleep.
By using blood work, I can measure and assess your hormone balance, and develop an individualized treatment plan. Your plan may include prescription medications, such as bioidentical hormones, but it may also include pharmaceutical grade supplements, lifestyle changes and possible nutrition changes to help you feel your best.
Thyroid disorders, like hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's, are becoming more common. You may have symptoms of low thyroid function that are hard to detect, especially if your doctor is only looking at your TSH. At Hormonious Health, a full thyroid panel will be ordered to thoroughly evaluate your thyroid function.
How you think and feel every day is closely tied to your hormone health…but what controls your hormones? Ultimately, many hormone problems can begin in the gut. This is because the gut microbiome–the trillions of bacteria that live in our digestive system–plays a huge role in regulating hormones. When the gut microbiome is unhealthy, it can cause problems like estrogen-related diseases, thyroid problems, PCOS or endometriosis, and type 2 diabetes. Luckily, there are steps we can take to improve gut health and regulate hormones.
