The process begins by exploring the six following areas:
1. Gut Health
If you’re dealing with gut problems like gas or bloating, it may be time to check for gluten sensitivity and other gut issues.
For instance, we can assess the health of your gut bacteria and check for any potential candida problems you may have.
2. Thyroid Function
Weight gain and low energy are two common symptoms linked to low thyroid function.
This is a common problem people face—and there are a number of treatment options available to improve thyroid health.
3. Hormone Levels
Whether you’re in menopause or you simply have an inkling your hormone levels may be off, you are not alone.
Many of our patients are curious about hormone replacement therapy but don’t know where to start. Fortunately, there are a number of safe and natural options available.
4. Toxic Metal Levels
Toxic metal exposure is a risk we all face—but it doesn’t have to be a permanent struggle.
Mercury is the world’s most toxic natural metal. It’s present in the silver-colored fillings some people have in their teeth, and while it’s prone to leaching, you can mitigate its physical effects. Our office can easily text for mercury and gauge the quantities of other toxic metals in the body.
5. Brain Health
If your memory feels cloudy and you don’t know where to turn, note that the natural aging process isn’t necessarily to blame.
So many factors can affect brain health. And fortunately, we’re here to help. So, come in for a comprehensive evaluation, protect your critical brain cells, and check your homocysteine levels. (Homocysteine testing is an important lab that monitors heart and brain health.)
6. High Blood Pressure
You may be on medication for high blood pressure, or you might not know you struggle with this condition.
No matter where you are in your journey, you’ll want to complete a thorough evaluation—along with labwork—to determine the underlying causes of this common health issue.
While in some cases high blood pressure is linked to family history and lifestyle, it may also be the product of hormones or the buildup of nitric oxide, heavy metals, inflammatory chemicals, and plaque in the body.
This is where our office comes in. We’ll help you address the above underlying issues—and others—in a natural, science-backed manner. With our expert medical guidance, you can rest assured you won’t have to rely on prescription medications for the rest of your life.
