Dr. Bizios ND has developed an interest in hormonal health and knows the importance of overall hormonal balance for optimal vitality. Below are some common signs of hormonal imbalance.
Treating a hormonal imbalance involves a throrough examination and testing of blood, urine and saliva to detect hormonal fluctuations and hormone metabolism over an extended period of time, providing a clearer picture of the reasons behind your symptoms. Naturopathic care that incorporates herbal, nutritional, traditional chinese medicine and/or acupuncture along with lifestyle changes are used to assist with hormonal balance and a renewed sense of vitality.
Your thyroid is the master gland of your metabolism and thyroid hormone is active in almost every cell of your body. An underactive thyroid (hypothyroid), an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroid) or a thyroid that is being attacked by your own immune system (Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Grave’s disease) can impair your overall body’s functioning and leave you feeling unwell. Below are common signs of a poorly functioning thyroid.
The conventional approach commonly uses TSH in screening for thyroid, if this is normal no further testing is done. However, many patients with a “normal” TSH still present with symptoms and may require more comprehensive thyroid testing. Dr. Bizios ND will perform a comprehensive thyroid panel, and screen for nutritional deficiencies related to thyroid health. A unique combination of herbs, vitamins, minerals and nutrition may be then used to support thyroid health.
Maintaining a healthy blood sugar level in the body is vital for good health. Below are some signs and symptoms associated with blood sugar problems.
Dr. Bizios ND will help you make dietary and lifestyle changes to help get your blood sugar levels under control. Treatment plans can be used in combination with your prescribed medications. Specific oils, vitamins and mineral supplements can be used to replenish deficiencies that are common in diabetics. Specialized herbs can be used to improve blood sugar levels, reduce cravings and appetite, and protect the kidneys, eyes and pancreas from further damage. A comprehensive hormone assessment, including insulin, cortisol, testosterone and others can be performed to evaluate overall hormonal health.
The adrenal gland makes hormones like cortisol that help your body respond to stress. However, chronic stress puts your adrenals in to overdrive and in time their ability to make hormones becomes impaired, the result is adrenal dysfunction or "adenal fatigue". Below are some common signs of adrenal fatigue.
Dr. Bizios ND will perform a naturopathic assessment and additional testing of the saliva and urine to assess adrenal function and formulate a treatment plan to restore your adrenal health.
