Functional Medicine

What is functional medicine?

Functional Medicine is a medical approach that addresses the underlying causes of disease with an intent to heal the whole person instead of just treating symptoms. It looks closely at how the environment we are in, our lifestyle, and our own genetics affect us and ultimately determine our health conditions. Functional medicine better addresses modern-day healthcare needs and allows a more patient-centered approach to treatment.

Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy

Hormonal imbalances can take place at any age and affect both men and women. Women experience symptoms during menopause or a hormone imbalance. The primary hormone in females is estrogen, which exists in three different forms in the body: estrone (E1), estradiol (E2), estriol (E3). Progesterone (P4), testosterone, and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) are also prominent hormones in the body. Bio-identical hormones can help restore natural balance in the body and may help alleviate your symptoms. Multiple ingredients can be combined into a single dosage form for convenience and to ensure better patient compliance. Compounds are specifically tailored to a patient’s personal labs and symptoms. Dosage forms available include rapid dissolve tablets, sublingual suspensions, troches, capsules, topical and vaginal creams, gels and suppositories.

Symptoms of menopause or hormone imbalance:

  • Weight gain
  • Hot flashes
  • Migraines
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Foggy thinking
  • Loss of libido
  • Fatigue

For physicians who unfamiliar with hormone replacement therapy, I offer patient consultations to evaluate your patient’s needs. Using laboratory values and symptomatology I can submit hormone replacement and nutritional supplement recommendations to your practice.

In addition, we are proud members of PCCA, meaning we can offer the highest quality products. This also means we have access to more resources for compounding to meet you and your patients’ needs.
