Are you experiencing fatigue, menstrual or fertility issues, unexplained weight gain or mood swings? Advanced hormone testing in Oakville can help determine if this is a hormone imbalance.
Hormone testing is especially useful in determining imbalances and is most often prescribed to individuals experiencing menopause, PMS (premenstrual syndrome), irregular menses, PCOS, fertility issues, stress, loss of libido, unusual hair growth patterns, or bone loss. After determining hormone levels, a treatment plan is developed to address any imbalances.
Blood, saliva, and/or urine metabolites are the most clinically relevant way to assess hormone levels within the body. These hormones include estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, and testosterone.
A comprehensive hormone panel will also look at adrenal health, and how well (or unwell) your body responds to stress. Levels of the main adrenal hormone, cortisol, rise, and fall in a daily pattern that underlies the more erratic fluctuations caused by the stress response.
The key to improving your hormonal symptoms is to test and identify which hormones are “out of whack.” Then with Naturopathic treatment, we work on returning your hormones to balance.
HORMONE THERAPIES USED
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a treatment that uses hormones identical in structure and function to the hormones produced by the human body. BHRT can be used for various conditions, including hormone imbalance, infertility menopause, anxiety, depression, and insomnia.
Detoxification can help to remove these toxins and restore balance to the body. There are many different ways to detoxify the body, including juice cleanses, teas, and supplements.
Hormonal Imbalance Correction
Hormonal imbalances can majorly impact our health, causing various symptoms from fatigue and weight gain to anxiety and depression. Often, these imbalances are caused by underlying nutrient deficiencies. At Inside Health Clinic we work to correct hormonal imbalances through supplementation, botanical medicine and clinical nutrition.
Stress Reduction Techniques
It’s no secret that stress can take a toll on our health. When we’re under constant pressure, our bodies go into fight-or-flight mode, leading to hormone imbalances and other problems. That’s why it’s so important to find ways to reduce stress in our lives. Mindfulness, yoga, and meditation are all excellent stress-reduction techniques.
IV Vitamin Therapy
IV vitamin therapy is a treatment that involves infusing vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream. This allows the nutrients to be quickly absorbed by the body and put to work immediately.
Colon Hydrotherapy is a safe, effective way to cleanse the colon and eliminate toxins from the body. The therapy helps to break down and remove built-up waste which can help improve digestion, alleviate constipation, reduce bloating and promote regularity.
PEMF (Pulse Electromagnetic Field Therapy)
PEMF therapy is a treatment that uses magnetic fields to heal the body. It has been used for centuries and is said to help with various conditions, including pain relief, inflammation, and circulation problems. This therapy is also said to improve sleep quality, decrease stress, and boost energy levels.
Lymphatic Enhancement is a form of bodywork that helps improve the lymphatic system’s function. The lymphatic system is a network of vessels and glands that help to remove toxins and wastes from the body to evade disease. This type of therapy helps to increase the flow of lymph fluid, which helps to improve the function of the lymphatic system.
