Thyroid, Adrenal & Hormone Balance
Most of my female patients are tired of struggling with the effects of stress. Many modern women seem to be battling stress-related symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain (especially around their mid-section), anxiety, depression, hot flashes, irregular menses, PMS, acne, dry skin, and mood swings. These stress-related symptoms are all linked to underlying adrenal, thyroid and hormonal imbalances and although they are common, it doesn’t make them “normal”.
Your thyroid and adrenal glands are crucial to your overall health and wellbeing. Between the two of them, they are responsible for hundreds of hormonal and biochemical reactions in the body. When in balance they help to optimize energy levels, balance hormones, support fertility, normalize body temperature and regulate mood and stress levels. Seeing as 60-80% of medical visits are for stress related symptoms, the health of these two glands needs to be properly assessed and supported.
The stress-related symptoms you are experiencing are simply signals from your body attempting to point you to where your imbalances lie. Through utilizing individualized lab testing such as salivary hormone testing and comprehensive bloodwork panels, clinical nutrition, herbal medicine and lifestyle guidance, I can help to improve your adrenal, thyroid and hormonal imbalances and recover your energy and vitality so that you feel like your best self once again.
It’s important to note that it takes time for your body and mind to heal, just as it takes time for those symptoms to develop in the first place. Most of my patients experience positive changes within the first 1-3 months of care, with the best part being that they are working towards not just symptom relief but lifelong health, wellness and hormonal balance.
