Hormone Restoration

Hormones are chemical messengers of the endocrine system that play diverse and significant roles throughout the human body.  They’re fascinating — they are so tiny but so powerful and do so many amazing things.  They help dictate how we experience the world.   Hormones are involved in production of energy, brain health and mood, blood sugar regulation and metabolism, libido and sexual function and health of the immune system.  There is a beautiful orchestration and a complex organization between the brain and major hormone centers throughout the body.
When hormones released by the thyroid, adrenals, ovaries and testes are produced in adequate amounts, things go well.  However, factors like poor dietary and lifestyle choices, chronic stress, environmental toxins and aging can disrupt the harmony of this system.  A multitude of symptoms can result affecting one or multiple endocrine organs.  The main endocrine organs to evaluate are the thyroid gland, adrenal glands, and the gonads (ovaries in females and testes in males producing our sex hormones).
Through appropriate lab testing, we can determine the underlying causes of these symptoms and address them using natural treatments such as diet, supplementation, herbal medicine and hormone replacement therapy.
