Bio-Identical Hormone Testing
Is Restore the right program for me?
Hormonal imbalance can be one of the most difficult health battles of your life. Fatigue, weight gain, moodiness, insomnia, headaches, bloating and hair loss are just a few of the symptoms associated with Peri-Menopause and menopause. Do we have the “magic potion” here at Reneu to make all your symptoms disappear? Well quite likely we do, but like any potion there are many ingredients needed to give optimum results. One of those ingredients may very well be Bio-Identical Hormones. But we may also recommend dietary changes, yoga, herbal products and supplements depending on your age and individual symptoms. This is not a “one size fits all” or “one pill fixes all” problem. Hormones affect every system of your body, so when you are going thru a time of hormonal imbalance we need focus on your physical, emotional and nutritional health. We work together to find your “magic potion” and to give you back your energy, metabolism and well-being. We promise.
Bio-Identical hormones may be one piece of your puzzle. They include estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid, and adrenal hormones. They are hormones that are structurally identical to the hormones your body makes (or used to make) and therefore fit precisely into the receptor sites (activation sites) in your body. If hormones need to be replaced – and only a qualified physician can determine this – it would make sense to replace them with Bio-Identical Hormones. This is what your body is accustomed to responding to, and is the most natural way to replace hormones. But “bio identical” does not necessarily mean safer than synthetic hormones traditionally prescribed by doctors. It would make sense that a Hormone Identical to your body’s own natural hormones would be safer, but there are no studies to support this assumption. So for now we must assume that there are risks, however slight, to taking hormones, even Bio-Identical Hormones.
Dr. Jill Wohlfeil is now offering saliva testing to more accurately assess your need for Bio-Identical Hormones. Your consultation includes not only assessment of hormonal levels, but also evaluation of your metabolism, nutritional and emotional health.
Our goal is to give you optimum health during any hormonal battle. Here at Reneu, we are ready to help you fight the battle of your life, and win!
