Perimenopause & Menopausal Imbalances
Perimenopausal & 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 sleep disruptions.
We use traditional blood tests along with saliva and urine testing, when indicated, to assess your hormone balance and determine an individualized treatment plan. Your plan may include prescribed hormones, but may also include natural therapies, such as supplements and lifestyles changes, to help ease the transition.
Medical Weight Loss
Hormonal imbalances combined with a poor diet and lack of exercise can lead to weight gain. An individualized weight loss program is developed, based on each woman's unique biology. The use of prescription weight loss medication may be included, to help achieve the weight loss goal.
Thyroid disorders are becoming more common. Autoimmune thyroiditis is also on the rise. You may have symptoms of thyroid problems that are hard to detect. Most healthcare professionals only check TSH, which often fails to fully evaluate the thyroid. We run a full thyroid panel as well as investigate other imbalances that can make your thyroid sluggish.
Nutrition & Weight Loss Therapy
Weight loss or gain is primarily controlled by the interactions of many hormones, including insulin, thyroid, glucagon, leptin, ghrelin, cortisol and the sex hormones. We promote nutritional wellness using a customized, multi-prong approach to help you achieve your goals. There are many different types of dietary approaches, such as low carb, high fat (LCHF), Ketogenic, Primal/Paleo and fasting methods that can be implemented. Lifestyle modifications, such as improving sleep, reducing stress and increasing exercise, will also be explored.
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 bloodwork, 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.
