Endocrine System Irregularities
In focusing on the endocrine system our doctors look at how all the hormones are speaking to each other and enhancing or inhibiting the function of others. They often work with menstrual irregularities, PMS symptoms, endometriosis and PCOS.
Often thyroid issues are misdiagnosed or poorly diagnosed at best. Our doctors do thorough testing to get to the root of your thyroid dysfunction and then helps to manage the cause, whether it be an autoimmune hashimotos thyroid, or conversion problems between T4 and T3, or a nutrient deficiency. They love working with these cases because they feel confident that they are able to return vitality and quality of life to these patients.
Though Menopause is a very natural transition period in a woman’s life, not all women experience it the same. Our doctors work regularly with peri and post menopausal women to ease the transition, and help women understand what is happening in their bodies. They often uses herbs and nutrients to support the transition, but our prescribing doctors also have the capacity and experience to use bioidentical hormone therapy should the situation call for it. Whether you’re losing sleep, having hot flashes or truly not feeling yourself, working with one of our doctors may help to improve your transition.
Irregular periods, heavier periods and major swings with off and on hot flashes are all a part of the perimenopause phase. Often women experience weight gain and insomnia as indicators that their cycle is changing. Our doctors are trained to recognize what are normal symptoms during this time and what symptoms need further support or investigation.
Stress and Adrenal Dysfunction
Next to thyroid conditions, this is a condition that is commonly seen at our Clinic. These patient are often feeling exhausted, have a flat lined mood, have lost their sex drive and are experiencing changes to their sleep and coping abilities. Our doctors use functional lab testing to investigate exactly how a persons system is working in relation to their symptoms. They have treatment options that range from simple lifestyle interventions to medication use to treat this condition. Our doctors see this as an underdiagnosed epidemic of our time, and is often due to the pressures of our culture and our tendency to go go go, and not actually take the steps needed to cultivate resiliency and restoration.
From dysbiosis (abnormal gut flora), infection and parasites to irritable bowel syndrome, irritable bowel disease and food intolerances, our doctors are skilled in helping to revamp gastrointestinal health. They support patients daily with colitis, crohns disease, celiac, as well as conditions such as reflux/heartburn , chronic diarhea or constipation. Our doctors are able to perform food intolerance testing (see lab page) as well as advanced gastrointestinal panels to help get to the route cause of what is going on in one of your most important systems in your body.
Autoimmune conditions present themselves as a confusion in the immune system, where the body starts to recognize itself as foreign and mounts a destructive response to a specific area of the body. Often the only option presented to patients when working with autoimmune conditions, are to use biologics which non selectively shut down the entire immune response. Our doctors work to adjunctively support the affected branches of the immune system while continuing to selectively suppress the affected overdrive. They know that there are so many more ignored, under acknowledged influences on autoimmune conditions that make a huge difference when addressed. This is a major part of their practice.
