We Treat Root Causes for Better Overall Health
We specialize in treating women suffering from various symptoms. We are exposed to countless toxins, chemicals, poor foods, and hormone disruptors, and how we feel and look are directly impacted by them. Our team believes in determining root causes, instead of prescribing drugs, allowing us to provide quality of life improvements to all our patients. Underlying issues cause many symptoms like fatigue or weight gain in the following areas:
- Hormones: In women, hormones are crucial in the menstrual cycle and pregnancy. The main female hormones include estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Hormone imbalances lead to irregular periods, mood swings, weight gain, and fertility issues.
- Thyroid: The thyroid produces hormones responsible for regulating metabolism and energy levels. Thyroid problems are common and cause a range of symptoms, including fatigue, weight gain or loss, hair loss, irregular periods, and mood changes.
- Adrenals: The adrenal glands produce hormones that help the body respond to stress and regulate blood pressure. Chronic stress, inadequate sleep, and poor nutrition can lead to adrenal fatigue, causing exhaustion, irritability, and a weakened immune system.
- Metabolism: Metabolism refers to the process by which the body converts food into energy. It is essential to weight management and overall well-being. Age, hormone levels, and physical activity can influence metabolism.
- Digestion: Women are more prone to digestive problems due to hormonal changes and stress. Symptoms of poor digestion can include bloating, constipation, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. Eating a balanced, fiber-rich diet, staying hydrated, and managing stress can help.
