Natural Hormone Support for Women and Men in Georgia
At our Roswell, GA office we look at how your hormones are "functioning"and what your specific needs are to promote overall hormone health and wellness.
HORMONE TESTING - SALIVA VS. BLOOD
Saliva: At our clinic in Roswell, GA we utilize saliva testing to look at levels of estrogen (estradiol, estone, estriol), progesterone, testosterone, DHT, DHEA & coritsol for identifying hormone imbalances.
It is less expensive than blood, does not require a blood draw and can be collected at home. Saliva testing measures the free fractioned non-protein bound hormones.
These hormones are the ones that are available to bind to hormone receptors and induce a response. Saliva testing can also be used to measure the rhythms of hormones throughout the entire menstrual cycle.
Blood: Serum tests are usually identifying the hormones bound to proteins, which do not give information about the hormones available to receptors. These levels reflect the potential circulating hormones in the system.
NATURAL HORMONES REMEDIES
Plant Source Herbal Botanicals:
Botanicals have been used safely for many years as a natural remedy for menopause and other hormones imbalances. Some have ingredients of soy or wild yam which closely mimics the chemical structure of the naturally occurring female hormone. Botanicals have been used for generations to balance hormones naturally.
Bio Identical Hormones:
Our clinic has product lines available to you which provide highly absorbable, bio-identical forms of hormone supports. These natural products have the chemical structure that identically matches a woman's naturally occurring hormones. This is considered a "natural" hormone because it exactly replicates the human female hormones.
Women experience normal monthly hormone fluctuations. However, these changes should not be debilitating. As a woman reaches the pre-menopause and menopause years she will experience even more hormonal shifts. These changes can start to effect her vitality, sleep body temperature and mood. If left unchecked, these problems can contribute to stress related health problems.
Symptoms of female hormone imbalance: irregular menstrual periods, hot flashes, PCOS, PMS, lack of sex drive, infertility, trouble sleeping, lack of energy, trouble focusing, depression, hair loss, weight gain and more.
The aging process is inevitable. Some men lose some of their "vitality" as they age.
