“Diet, lifestyle, aging, and menopause can contribute to hormone balance A holistic approach that takes into account diet, lifestyle, sleep, and stress reduction is necessary to address hormone imbalance. When our bodies are not in proper balance, our overall health can suffer.” -Dr. Adriana
All the systems in our bodies are interconnected and when our bodies are not in proper balance our overall health can suffer. Stress, chronic inflammation, nutrient deficiencies, aging, and menopause are some of the issues that can contribute to hormone dysregulation. A wholistic approach that optimizes nutrition, lifestyle, sleep, and stress resilience is crucial to address hormone imbalance. At Crest, our wholistic approach is to look for the root cause of hormonal symptoms as well as support the body’s natural wisdom to restore and maintain healthy hormone balance
Hormone-Related Concerns We Address Include:
- Hot flashes
- Vaginal dryness
- Weight gain
- Difficulty concentrating
- Low sex drive
Hormones are the chemical messengers that communicate with the cells in our bodies on how to function properly. Maintaining proper hormonal balance can ensure our optimal functioning. Hormone balancing through replacement therapy treatments can help to provide gradual improvement in mood, energy levels, and regulation of menopause symptoms. This approach has been shown to provide additional benefits such as reduced risk of osteoporosis. This therapy modality as part of a holistic approach may help you to enjoy better sleep, sexual function, and overall quality of life. It is important to understand that hormone therapy alone is not expected to optimize health or maintain youth.
Our approach starts with lifestyle improvement and nutritional support. When appropriate, individualized hormone replacement prescriptions are determined by assessing various biomarkers.
