Take this short quiz to find out if undiagnosed gut or hormonal imbalances are to blame!
Patients rarely associate symptoms like brain fog, joint pain or allergies with impaired gut health, but the microbiome and the protective gut lining are our body's first defense!
That's why going deeper on possible gut imbalances & stealth infections is part of our integrative approach... so we can dial down inflammation & premature aging.
Sometimes, your hormones aren’t actually the problem, and that's why hormone replacement therapy alone isn't helpful. Using an integrative approach, we first evaluate all possible root causes of hormonal dysfunction – including possible gut imbalances & nutrient deficiencies that can be easily corrected with high-quality supplements.
Your body's hormone system is pretty complex, and that's why trying to "fix" hormonal imbalances on its own will always backfire. Stealth infections, poor gut health or insulin resistance push hormones out of whack... so we need to address those issues first before looking into more conventional treatment options like hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
