We treat the cause. . . not the symptom
Susan knew she wasn’t crazy. Although she hadn’t felt like herself for a while, she knew her symptoms weren’t made up. She couldn’t figure out why she was so tired and moody seemingly all the time. After all, she tried to care of herself and was active. Now, getting a good night’s sleep is almost impossible. At times she even feels depressed.
Her symptoms are starting to affect her relationship with her kids, her husband, and friends. Little things that never used to bother her now seem like huge events. An accomplished professional, she experiences “brain fog” at work. And her diminished libido . . . well that’s a new one. Sometimes she feels like she could “lose it” at any moment.
Her primary care doctor ran a battery of tests, including for low thyroid, but her results came back “normal”. The advice of “you’re just getting older” doesn’t sit well with her. Her PCP even prescribed anti-depressants and sleeping pills for Susan. That’s when she decided to take control of her health. Susan isn’t someone who just wants to “take another pill” to treat symptoms. She wants to get to the bottom of her issues as she values her health immensely.
She’s spent so much time taking care of others and now it’s time to take care of herself.
According to researchers, the cause of many chronic health problems may be related to hormonal imbalances.
Hormonal excesses or deficiencies can cause a myriad of symptoms and health problems, and increase the risk for many diseases.
Symptoms of an imbalance include (but are not limited to):
> Weight Gain
> Headaches/Dizziness/Foggy Thinking
> Wrinkly Skin
> Water Retention/Bloating
> Loss of Libido (sex drive)
> Decrease in Muscle Mass
> Mood Swings
> Irregular menstrual periods
> Prostate Problems/Decreased Flow
> Thinning Hair
. . . to name a few symptoms.
Many people do not associate the above symptoms with hormone imbalances. Through advanced testing and by spending time with patients, we can often pinpoint the true source of the symptoms.
