How are you feeling these days? Are you finding the things you used to do to improve your health just aren’t working anymore? You exercise, eat well and manage your stress, but still feel exhausted all the time? Your doctor has run blood work and everything has come back normal. You are trying to lose weight, but nothing works.
Does this sound familiar? Our bodies are constantly changing, but it is often as age that we really start to notice significant changes. The most common reason for body changes in women is hormones — specifically hormone imbalance. These chemical messengers play a major role in your mental, physical, and emotional health.
Many women experience weight gain, insomnia, fatigue/exhaustion, brain fog, digestion issues, low libido, mood changes and more — all because of hormone imbalances. We are often conditioned to think this is all ‘normal’ and our only option is to ‘put up with it’. The good news is, there is something that can be done about it. You can feel better — naturally!
As women age, I recommend keeping a close eye on your hormone levels. The production of hormones naturally decreases as you age. However, an imbalance in hormones can mimic symptoms of aging such as brain fog, fatigue, joint pain, digestive issues and more. Regular testing can ensure your hormones stay balanced and optimize your health.
As a Naturopath I can help identify if you indeed have a hormone imbalance and what steps you need to take to optimize your hormone health with a step-by-step evidence-based approach.
We start by discussing your health concerns in detail, including your menstrual cycle. Then we identify your hormone profile through DUTCH testing (Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones). This test provides an extensive amount of information on your hormones and is considered the most accurate test for assessing sex and adrenal hormones.
With this detailed information, I can now develop a treatment plan based on your specific hormone profile. Through a combination of herbal medicine, dietary and lifestyle adjustments we can treat your hormone imbalance and get you on the road to optimal health!
