There are many conditions unique to women which are caused by hormone imbalances. These hormones, namely progesterone and estrogen fluctuate throughout the month and also go through transitions during puberty and menopause. Symptoms that often arise during these times are indications of imbalances which require special attention.
Some common female related health issues treated at Naturopathic Foundations Health Clinic include:
Painful menses and heavy menses
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
Recurrent yeast infections
Numerous factors can impact hormone balance including diet, environmental toxins, lifestyle and stress. Common laboratory tests used to assess hormone balance and possible causes include:
Blood Hormone panels
Saliva Female Hormone panels
Saliva Adrenal panel
Through individualized assessments which include thorough history and appropriate laboratory testing, we can identify areas of hormonal imbalance and offer treatment options.
Naturopathic Foundations has qualified Naturopathic Doctors who are trained to prescribed Bio-identical Hormone therapy and Dessicated Thyroid Hormone when indicated.
