WOMEN’S HEALTH & HORMONE

Balance Your Hormones, Balance Your Life

Having to hit the snooze button one too many times, sleepless nights, migraine headaches, or unexplained weight gain are common symptoms of hormone imbalance. Other symptoms include low libido, mood changes, hot flashes, night sweats, cravings, acne, memory difficulties, digestive problems, infertility or hair loss. They can change you’re once A game to a C game at best and leave you wondering how you got here. If what use to be your get-up-and-go to-do list has now left you feeling stressed and overwhelmed, we understand. If you are having hormonal havoc help is available.

Let Your Light Shine!

THE REVIVELIFE APPROACH

Our practitioners know that your quality of health determines many successes in your life, including both personal and professional. Our natural approach with our hormone professionals includes discovering the root cause and supporting youthful levels of hormones to support overall well being. Strategies may include:
  • Cruciferous Vegetables: Cruciferous veggies such as, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, and Brussels sprouts contain compounds that may help detoxify estrogen breakdown products that promote cancer growth. 1
  • Vitamin D: Vitamin D may provide breast health protection. Women with higher vitamin D levels had a nearly 70% reduction in their risk of breast cancer compared to women with the lowest levels in one study. 2
  • Hormone Therapy: Bio-identical hormone therapy (BHRT) is the use of hormones that are structurally identical to the hormones in your body. BHRT dosing is customized to you, carefully monitored and studies indicate reduced risk vs synthetic HRT.

Doesn’t increased levels of estrogen cause breast cancer?

It is true that the use of unopposed or relatively high levels of estrogen may increase the risk of breast cancer. We recommend all women have hormone testing included in their wellness health plan to assess hormone optimization and the safe balancing of hormones which decreases the risk of breast related concerns. 

How to Get Started?

All Patients start with a Naturopathic Initial visit. One of our highly skilled Naturopathic Doctors will meet with you for your initial consultation to review your goals, lifestyle, hormones, nutrition and medical needs providing you with a head-to-toe medical evaluation and lab work as indicated. They will then recommend a customized plan that is designed to promote hormone optimization. You can choose to be supported in your hormone health with natural remedies or therapies that your Naturopathic Doctor can recommend OR you can be referred to one of our Bio-identical (BHRT) prescribing practitioners for BHRT care – either the Women’s Revive H or the Men’s Revive T BHRT program. The prescriptions by our Nurse Practitioners or Medical Doctors include Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT),  Natural Desiccated Thyroid (NDT) and Testosterone Therapy (TRT)
