Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
Bioidentical hormone therapy can promote a healthier aging process for both women and men. By using oral, topical or injectable hormones to replace the levels of estrogen, progesterone or testosterone that begin declining by age 25, we can help prevent or reduce symptoms such as:
- Hot flashes
- Low libido
- Mood swings
- Feelings of stress
- Lack of motivation
- Memory loss
- Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
Many patients have found bioidentical hormone therapy to be helpful when other forms of hormone replacement therapy were not. Unlike most pharmaceutical hormones, the molecular structure of bioidentical hormones mirrors the natural hormones made in our bodies.
Throughout the centuries, certain plants have been found to have medicinal benefits. At the Center for Health Promotion, we use safe, effective botanical therapies created by herbal medicine specialists. They compound botanical formulas to treat inflammation, anxiety, indigestion, insomnia and other conditions. As our patient, you will be offered education about herbal remedy options for your symptoms.
With our whole person care approach, we help you discover the psychological, experiential and environmental factors connected to your medical conditions. When you visit our behavioral counseling service, our medical providers and psychologists will help you create a life plan to improve health and wholeness.
Personalized Micronutrient Evaluation
When you know what nutrients your body is absorbing at the cellular level, you can make better decisions about what vitamin supplements to take. With personalized micronutrient testing, a simple blood test can analyze the nutrients in your white blood cells to create your ideal vitamin and nutrient supplementation plan. The test looks at dozens of nutritional components, including vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids to determine what you may be missing.
Food Sensitivity Assessment
Like many people, you may be unaware that certain foods are making you ill. Or, perhaps you suspect that something is not right after eating a specific food and are looking for confirmation of your sensitivity. At the Center for Health Promotion, we offer several IgG food panels that test for sensitivity, allergy or intolerance so you can make better dietary decisions.
