Whether you are looking for help with your PMS, fertility, or menopausal symptoms, we support you with hormone testing and therapies to help you get back to living life.

Perimenopause + Menopause

About

Menopause refers to the transition in a woman’s life from reproductive to a nonreproductive state as hormone production from the ovaries declines. Perimenopause on the other hand describes the period before menopause when hormone levels tend to fluctuate wildly, causing many uncomfortable symptoms.

Symptoms

Many women experience a wide range of symptoms as their body transitions through perimenopause.

Some symptoms of peri-menopause/menopause include:

  • Hot flashes and/or night sweats
  • Migraines or premenstrual headaches
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Anxiety
  • Low libido
  • Fatigue
  • Hair loss, thinning, or dry and brittle hair
  • Irritability, mood changes
  • Memory loss
  • Increased cardiovascular risk
  • Decreased bone density
  • Poor skin elasticity
  • Insomnia

Testing + Treatment

Tests

We investigate your menopausal symptoms with lab work and patient history before prescribing a treatment plan for you.

  • DUTCH (Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones): Test your sex hormones (like Estrogen, Progesterone, Androgens (like Testosterone and DHEA), their metabolites and more!
  • DUTCH testing for Adrenal Hormones (4 point Cortisol Rhythm, DHEA and Melatonin).
  • Healthy Living Panel: This panel checks your whole system! We recommend this as a yearly check-up for patients so that we can identify age-related issues early and get ahead of them with preventative treatment. The Healthy Living Panel is a simple blood test that gives us information on your liver function, kidney function, blood sugar, cholesterol and more.
  • Thyroid Panel: Is your thyroid functioning optimally? If not, you may be feeling tired, cold, and depressed. Poor thyroid function can cause weight gain and premature aging.

Treatments

Hormone treatment strategies are unique to the individual, but could include a combination of the following:

  • Bioidentical hormone therapy and hormone balancing supplements
  • Hormone Detoxification programs
  • Adrenal support, cortisol balancing, and bioidentical cortisol
  • Thyroid support including supplements, dietary changes, bioidentical thyroid hormones and desiccated thyroid
  • Dietary consultation and weight loss programs
  • Non-pharmaceutical approaches to lowering cholesterol levels, improving blood pressure and cardiovascular health, balancing blood sugar, and improving liver and kidney function

Estrogen Dominance + PMS

About

Estrogen Dominance describes a state of hormonal imbalance where estrogen levels in your body become elevated or out of balance—with respect to your progesterone levels. Estrogen levels can become elevated as a result of poor estrogen metabolism by your liver and the intake of exogenous estrogens (i.e. contraceptives/birth control, synthetic HRT, pesticides, hormones in dairy products and non-organic meats).

Symptoms

Symptoms of estrogen dominance are often considered “normal” and not attributed to a hormonal imbalance or increased risk for chronic disease.

Some symptoms of estrogen dominance include:

  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS): Diffuse breast tenderness, bloating, low back pain, cramps, irritability and low mood prior to the start of your period
  • Dysmenorrhea (painful periods/period cramps)
  • Menorrhagia (heavy periods)
  • Metrorrhagia (irregular cycles)
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Endometriosis
  • Infertility
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Fibrocystic breast tissue
  • Abnormal cells on Pap test / Cervical dysplasia
  • Female cancers (breast, cervical, ovarian, uterine)
