Figuring out where you are medically, based on symptoms, age, bloodwork, urinalysis etc. will help determine the next steps in our process together.

Lab-based hormone analysis

What Hormone Therapy is like...

Every day 6,000 women enter menopause; 85% have symptoms.

did you know?

Cortisol, and its metabolites

Adrenal Hormones

TSH, T3, T4, rT3

Thyroid Hormones

Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone

Sex Hormones

In addition to analyzing your sex hormone levels, your comprehensive analysis includes a review of your thyroid and adrenal biomarkers and metabolites. These hormones are more likely to be in need of optimization during menopause.

Perimenopause

Thyroid Hormones

Thyroid and/or adrenal gland functions can become imbalanced throughout perimenopause and menopause. My comprehensive lab analysis includes an assessment of your thyroid and adrenal functions.

The next step to sustainable results

Peptides are short chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins. They act as hormones, enzymes, and neurotransmitters, providing cell-to-cell communication to help regulate processes such as metabolism, digestion, and sleep. 

Peptides act as hormones, enzymes, & neurotransmitters.

Peptides

They are administered via injections, nasal sprays, topical creams, or pills taken orally,to treat a range of conditions including:

· Regulating appetite, metabolism, and digestion
· Resolving skin issues
· Improving neurodegenerative diseases
· Fighting against the effects of aging
· Aiding in weight loss
· Regenerating hair growth
· Improving sleep quality and quantity
· Easing joint pain and muscle repair

Drainage is your body’s way of removing waste, toxins, and pathogens through a series of pathways (liver and bile ducts, bowels, kidneys, lymphatics, respiratory, and skin).

When drainage pathways are not functioning optimally, toxins will not exit the body.

Drainage and Detoxification

Book a Discovery call

Effective detoxification is a two-step process that begins with drainage. Each of these pathways is interconnected and relies on each other to properly drain and detoxify.

If any of our drainage pathways are not functioning optimally, toxins will not exit the body. They will instead recirculate in your system and be reabsorbed by the body. This leads to stagnation. Over time, this stagnation can lead to chronic symptoms of dysfunction.

The use of nutritional guidance and individualized supplementation is part of a comprehensive treatment plan. It considers genetics, current medical conditions, and one’s health goals. 

Nutrition is a vital component of any medical protocol

Nutrition and Supplements

Book a Discovery call

Approaches include:

  • Pulsing different diets at different times 
  • Avoiding food rigidity, which can cause unnecessary stress.
  • Supplements and nutraceuticals

Intentional self-care is a critical component of relieving stress and building resilience through stress management.

Together, we will develop a comprehensive stress management toolbox of powerful habits.

If not properly managed, dramatic and/or long-term stressors can be detrimental to physical and mental well-being.

Stress Management

Some examples of when we work together include:

•Identify and eliminate, where possible, stressors 
•Regular exercise
• Mindfulness practice
• Eating a diet that is healthy for you.
• Quality sleep
•Daily sun exposure
• Intentional time with loved ones
• Biofeedback
• Laughter 
• Hobbies and creative pursuits

At present, there are no insurance billing codes for bioidentical hormone therapy (BHRT). Some insurance companies cover selected labs, and in some instances, you can use your health savings accounts to pay for services not covered by insurance.

Individualized medicine requires adequate time with each patient. Comprehensive, personalized care is effective.

Why I Use Organic

Because 99% of the product in your hormone bottle is the base, The hormone formulations I use are comprised of 100% certified organic oil bases and contain zero chemical solvents. Other compounds that use gels and creams often contain a potentially toxic solvent as well as chemical additives. Over the course of a year, users of these gels and creams could rub more than a quart of the compound into their skin. Menopause Method offers the same hormones in 100% certified organic oil bases. 

It's that simple.
