Hormone Balancing

Balanced Hormones are essential for good health in both men and women, but especially for women.

Hormone Balancing in Women: Women who are balanced have regular menstrual cycles (like clockwork), rarely experience PMS, or have cramps. These are the same women who have few issues with peri-menopause, and “ease” into menopause. Women who have “hormone imbalance” can literally be governed by their cycles, with symptoms of:

  • Acne
  • Irritability
  • Headaches
  • Food Cravings
  • Depression
  • Emotional Outbursts
  • Cramps
  • Heavy Bleeding
  • Swelling
  • Weight Gain

Hormone balancing begins with a history, physical, and blood work. If indicated additional testing may include sonograms, a bone density exam, and neurotransmitter levels.

Lifestyle, stress, diet, and exercise all impact hormone balance. We will work with you to help make positive lifestyle changes necessary to get and stay balanced.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement: I have had extensive work with Bio-Identical Hormones, with a long track record of how to use hormones correctly, and how to monitor for safety. Here at Medicine 369 we work with both blood tests and saliva testing. We are cautious in dosing hormones, and recognize individual differences. We work with a number of hand-compounding pharmacies, ensuring the right delivery system, whether creams, capsules, troches or suppositories, for each client.

Testosterone Replacement: Low testosterone is one of the most neglected areas in medicine today. Both men and women can benefit from testosterone replacement therapy. I’ve been lecturing on “Andropause” and low testosterone in women, since the 90’s and have years of experience, with safely dosing and monitoring testosterone levels. Symptoms of low testosterone can include:

  • Fatigue
  • Lethargy
  • Decrease focus and drive
  • Low muscle tone (in spite of exercise)
  • Delayed healing of soft tissue injuries
  • Bone loss
  • Decreased libido

Adrenal Fatigue: Many individuals with fatigue, lethargy, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome, may actually have low DHEA-sulfate levels. Stress, poor diet, hormone imbalances, hypthyroidism, and poor sleep habits all impact the adrenals, leading to adrenal fatigue. We will look at all aspects of your health to identify the issue, support the adrenals, and relieve the adrenal fatigue.
