No one has a choice about aging, but we can all make a choice to age well. In addition to the aging process, we are all exposed to multiple environmental and dietary toxins during our lifetime which can take a toll on our bodies. Along with the normal aging process, these toxins contribute to a natural decline of hormones.
Everyone’s response to hormonal decline varies greatly based on their genetics, lifestyle, personal habits, dietary choices and physical activity. These factors resulting from an imbalance of hormones can contribute to conditions and diseases that can occur at any stage in life, including peri-menopause, menopause, andropause, adrenal fatigue, thyroid disease, insomnia, metabolic syndrome, sexual dysfunction and many more.
The good news is that hormone loss or imbalance is correctible. If you have experienced symptoms that are affecting your quality of life, you could be a candidate for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. Through state-of-the-art diagnostic hormone testing, using saliva, urine and/or blood analysis, we can determine your individual hormone levels and customize bio-identical hormones that are unique to your needs.
