Integrative Approach to hormones
Hormones are complicated. And addressing hormonal imbalances is not as simple as doing bio-identical hormone replacement (BHRT). In fact, for most women using hormones that your body didn't make just makes the hormonal imbalances worse. Because those exogenous hormones cause your body to stop even trying to make its own. And that is not what we want.
So at BioAdaptive Medicine, our goal is to help your body make its own hormones in a balanced ratio. How? By identifying why your organs are dysfunctional in the first place. Stress, blood sugar dysregulation, improper nutrition, nutrient deficiencies, genetic mutations, and inflammation can all be underlying causes of hormonal imbalances. Lifestyle changes, proper nutrition, addressing nutrient deficiencies, and using botanical medicine can go a long way to naturally restoring hormonal balance.
For those ladies that have hormonal imbalances because their ovaries are no longer capable of making estrogen and progesterone, BHRT may be appropriate.
At BioAdaptive Medicine, we will personalize a protocol to get you feeling your best at any age!
