The Decrease in essential Hormones
As women and age there is a decrease in their levels of main “sex” hormones estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. This change happens gradually and over time this is why women can have years of associated symptoms without proper treatment.
As men age there is a drop in the amount of testosterone causes changes in their lives as well. Left untreated this can have a lasting impact paving the way for more serious medical conditions.
What testing do we do for hormone imbalance?
We preform regular routine blood work, but that is where the similarities stop with traditional physicians. With the advanced education of our practitioners they will order some very specialized testing for hormone imbalances. These could include saliva hormone testing, Genetic testing, and even urine testing for hormone metabolites.
