Our bodies function by the command of a complex series of chemical signals that come in the form of hormones and neurotransmitters that are released from the brain and hormone-producing glands. These hormones are profoundly affected by the fast-paced world in which we live, our diets, and the lifestyle choices that we make.
None of our hormones act alone. They all influence each other to affect organs, tissues, joints, behavior, mood, energy level, digestion, and every other vital function of the body.
We are well trained at assessing this complex interplay between hormones through lab testing, physical exam, and taking thorough histories.
We routinely treat patients with botanical medicine, nutritional supplements, compounded hormones, and acupuncture who are being affected by hormonal changes including menopause, andropause, high-stress circumstances, autoimmune conditions.
