Hormone balance is essential to good physical, mental and emotional health. Hormones are critical chemical messengers that are secreted by specialized glands called endocrine glands (i.e. ovaries). Hormones carry information through the blood stream to distant body organs and are governed by a number of well-regulated processes that allow for the maintenance of balance between body systems, a fundamental aspect of optimal health. When there is a dysfunction in one or more endocrine glands or in the body’s ability to respond to a specific hormone, the entire hormonal system falls out of balance resulting in illness.
In order to determine if a hormone imbalance is the cause of or a contributing factor to your state of health, I will complete a comprehensive medical assessment including a detailed history, physical examination, and laboratory testing. I will work with you to achieve maximal hormone balance using a number of therapeutic techniques that are known to work synergistically and effectively such as herbal medicines, acupuncture, dietary modifications and supplementation.
Conditions resulting from hormone imbalance include but are not limited to:
- Hyper or hypothyroidism
- Low sex drive
