Testosterone For woMen

Testosterone, usually considered a male hormone, also regulates many systems in a woman's body. When we age, the decline in testosterone causes fatigue, memory loss, weight gain, depression and decrease in libido. Through our integrative approach, we will work to stabilize your hormone levels. 

Estrogen in woMen

Estrogen, a group of hormones that regulate multiple female systems, begins to decrease as women age. As estrogen levels fall, women can experience depression, emotional instability, fatigue, vaginal dryness and painful intercourse.  


Progesterone in women

Progesterone, an important female hormone, decreases as we age. It regulates fertility, and as progesterone levels fall, women can experience depression, emotional instability, fatigue, vaginal dryness and painful intercourse.

DHEA

DHEA is produced by the adrenal glands. It helps regulate other hormones, which means when DHEA is insufficient, it can affect many body systems. The symptoms of low DHEA are hair loss, fatigue and weight gain.


THyroid

The thyroid gland, because of its job in regulating hormone production, affects almost every organ system in the body. When the thyroid is imbalanced, a domino effect occurs. With careful adjustments in nutrition and preventative care, we can balance and regulate the thyroid, bringing it back into a symbiotic relationship with your body.

Cortisol

Cortisol is a stress-related hormone produced by the adrenal glands. When cortisol levels are imbalanced, it affects our memory, metabolic systems, blood sugar, and influences our mood.
