As we age our hormones can get out of balance. This is particularly true for women going through menopause and beyond, but is also becoming increasingly a problem in younger people as well. Both young men and women can experience hormone imbalances that can dramatically affect quality of life. In women, hormone imbalances can lead to hot flashes, poor memory, moodiness, breast tenderness, weight gain, low libido, anxiety and depression.
In men, hormone imbalances can lead to difficult weight loss, fatigue, depression, low stamina, low libido, and difficulty maintaining muscle mass. Both men and women see dramatic improvements in their quality of life when hormones are tested for and balanced properly.
Food Sensitivity Testing
Food sensitivities are increasingly common among people we treat. While we don’t understand exactly why this is, what we do know is that it’s critical to know what kind of fuel your body works best on, and what kind of fuel may be causing you problems. Very often when people have food sensitivities they can suffer from migraines, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, seasonal allergies and chronic congestion, fatigue, and sleep problems. When food sensitivities are tested for and eliminated, we very often see a dramatic improvement in symptoms over the course of the next month. Finding out what foods you’re sensitive to and eliminating them, is one of the key ways we have found people can look, feel, and be their best!
Micronutrient testing offers a valuable insight into which nutrients we might be deficient in. Once we have that information we can customize a nutrient IV, vitamin shot, or supplement protocol to address your body’s specific nutritional needs. When we have the right nutrient levels in our bodies we tend to feel more energetic have improved mood, and maximize our productivity and memory.
Neurotransmitters are the signals that our neurons use to communicate with one another. When our neurotransmitters are out of balance we can experience mood problems like anxiety and depression, as well as sleep and energy problems and even poor memory. With proper neurotransmitter balancing, patients often feel more stable moods, improved memory and focus, and more calm and balance in their lives.
Methylation is a chemical process in the body that is essential for proper functioning of many important systems. Problems with methylation can contribute to mood disorders like anxiety and depression, chronic miscarriages in women, sleep disturbances, hormone imbalances, neurotransmitter imbalances, and problems with detoxification. In identifying methylation problems, very often the issues can be corrected with specific nutrients given IV or as supplementation.
