Balancing Hormones and Restoring your Health
If hormone symptoms go untreated, then a variety of issues can emerge after your teen years and well into your 40’s. They begin to take root and cause more pronounced signs and symptoms.
I offer a natural and integrative approach to women’s health. I utilize advanced diagnostic methods, acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, nutrition therapy, and lifestyle counseling to treat the underlying cause of your symptoms so that you get the relief you desire.
Teens & Adolescents: Laying the foundation
As a teenager, hormone levels are dramatically shifting, creating symptoms such as mood changes, weight gain, acne, PMS, and more.
This is a crucial time as it is often a time when doctors suggest hormones to treat these symptoms. As we know, hormones such as the birth control pill can potentially offer you relief, but it will not fix the underlying imbalance causing the symptoms. Then many years down the road when you want to get off the hormones or would like to fall pregnant, that imbalance is still there. These imbalances are a sign that the hormones are not functioning optimally, and now is the time to correct them.
I love working with young women to balance hormones, treat symptoms and clarify any confusion to help them get started on the road to life-long health.
Young Women: Rebalancing Your Health
If hormone symptoms go untreated, then a variety of issues can emerge in your 20’s, 30’s and 40’s. They begin to take root and cause more pronounced signs and symptoms.
These patterns of imbalance can take many forms:
- Irregular bleeding
- Pelvic pain
- Thyroid disorders
- Adrenal deficiency
- Digestive dysfunction, and more.
It is my passion to treat these conditions, because as a woman I know what it’s like to feel vibrant and healthy, but I also know how horrible it can feel when hormones are not in balance. Together we can begin to go deeper into root causes of illness as we re-balance your physiology and establish a strong foundation for health.
Menopause: A Symptom Free Transition
Menopause can be a big transition for women on both a physical and emotional level. As hormone levels decline, you can feel like a completely different person, experiencing a wide range of symptoms that include:
- Mood swings
- Irregular bleeding
- Hot Flashes & Night sweats
- Low Libido
- Weight Gain
There is hope beyond hormone replacement therapy! If you are experiencing these hormonal symptoms than this is a very important time to seek care. By treating the body as a whole, and supporting the entire endocrine system, we can support and help you to move through this transition with ease and symptom free.
