Optimal Health

We have cutting edge testing to look at nutritional deficiencies and other imbalanced markers that if left untreated would eventually lead to disease. With these tests, you can rest assured that you are at your optimal and disease is not around the corner. Click here to learn more about the testing we offer.

BioIdentical Hormone Therapy
Balancing hormones for men isn’t just about testosterone anymore. We test the three main estrogens, progesterone, testosterone, and DHEA to determine the best treatment for you. Men and women have the same hormones just in differing amounts. Knowing the amount of hormones is just as important as knowing the hormones metabolites and the ratios between the hormones. Looking at all of this allows us to to get a more complete picture to treat specifically and keep us from over treating with testosterone. Too much testosterone eventually down regulates the testosterone hormone receptor making men feel like they need more testosterone and overburdening the liver. Whether it is low libido, erectile dysfunction, low testosterone, or others, we can help you find your right balance using natural treatments and bio-identical hormones.
Cardiovascular Health
High/low blood pressure, high cholesterol, arrhythmia, metabolic syndrome, and determining your risk if you have a family history of heart disease. 40-60% of patients with high blood pressure were able to go off their blood pressure meds when deficient nutrients were depleted. We test nutritional deficiencies! 50% of people that had a heart attack had normal cholesterol. Looking at cholesterol is only half the picture. It is the inflammatory markers along with all of the cholesterol markers that determine risk for heart disease…. we test all of these.
Diabetes, pre diabetes, insulin resistance, thyroid imbalance, including hyperthyroid and hypothyroid and adrenal fatigue. With thyroid, just because your tests are within the normal range doesn’t mean that you don’t have a thyroid imbalance. Low or subclinical low thyroid is one of the most under-diagnosed and under treated issues. We are trained in Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome protocol that optimizes thyroid function.
Gastrointestinal Health
The gut or gastrointestinal system are the organs from your mouth to your anus. We think of these are your roots. This is where food is broken down and absorbed. Healing this is the foundation of good health. 90 % of the health of your immune system comes from the health of your liver and the gut. Healing the liver and gut give the body a strong foundation to heal. So, when we see symptoms such as constipation, diarrhea, indigestion and reflux (GERD), colitis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s, diverticulitis, IBS, leaky gut, celiac disease, malabsorption, peptic ulcers, cavities, periodontal disease, gas and bloating and gall bladder disease, we know the gut is not optimal. These are all symptoms that come from other deeper causes such as imbalanced flora, nutritional deficiencies and hormonal, endocrine, neurotransmitter imbalances.
