Anti-aging– I prescribe low doses of individualized, bio-identical hormone replacement to relieve symptoms of aging such as: dry skin, loss of libido, loss of muscle and bone mass, vaginal dryness, insomnia, loss of appetite and energy. I start with in depth analysis of your medical history, genetic and lifestyle risk factors and continue with careful monitoring to ensure the benefits of HRT are weighed against your personal risks.
Hypothyroidism – a common condition in which the thyroid doesn’t create and release enough thyroid hormone into your bloodstream. This makes your metabolism slow down. Hypothyroidism can make you feel tired, experience hair loss, gain weight and be unable to tolerate cold temperatures. Thyroid medications are the most commonly prescribed medication in the U.S. -often treatment is not comprehensive and fails to effectively treat the multiple causes of this problem.
Adrenal Fatigue– symptoms that include: tiredness, trouble falling asleep at night or waking up in the morning, salt and sugar craving, and needing stimulants like caffeine to get through the day.
An in depth symptom history, comprehensive physical exam and individualized lab work is the first step in adequate diagnosis of these conditions. Treatment will include specific nutrients, herbs, lifestyle coaching as well as hormone supplementation if indicated.
Gender affirming care -as defined by the World Health Organization, includes a range of social, psychological, behavioral, and medical interventions “designed to support and affirm and individual’s gender identity”. I provide counsel and informed consent hormone therapy for individuals age 18+.
