An Integrated Approach to Weight Loss

An Integrative Approach to Weight Loss

Weight is a big topic in America, and trends indicate that our increasing weight gain has become a widespread problem that qualifies as an epidemic. Controlling your weight can be a real struggle in today’s fast-paced lifestyle and fast food mentality. Unfortunately, the options for weight management in conventional practices are limited to a small number of medications, a confusing array of dietary approaches and surgical procedures with their inherent risks and complications. Integrative weight management approaches weight-loss from a holistic perspective. Through an integrative approach you can abandon “yo-yo” dieting and achieve your weight loss goals effectively and naturally. Through a proper balance of foods, exercise, supplementation, and hormonal balance you can help to restore your metabolism and make sustained weight loss a reality. Below...

Slow Down the Clock & Embrace Vitality: Anti-Aging Medicine

Why are more and more women becoming interested in Anti-Aging Medicine? Women today are more in tune with their health and well being. We not only wish to merely prolong our lives, but we want to ensure that those years are enjoyed in a productive and vital fashion. This is the goal of Anti-Aging medicine. This form of medicine is based on the very early detection, prevention, and reversal of age-related diseases. If you have had your cholesterol tested, taken a lipid-lowering drug, had a mammogram, or taken HRT with thyroid, testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, melatonin, or DHEA, you have experienced anti-aging medicine. You can take every pill and rue your parents for passing on their genes, but if you want to live long and healthy there are...

Progesterone: The Missing Link

Progesterone: The Missing Link

To function optimally, the female body requires an optimal balance of progesterone and the estrogen hormones (a trio of related hormones called estradiol, estrone and estriol). Progesterone Deficiency occurs when the hormonal balance is shifted in favor of the estrogens. This condition is also referred to as Estrogen Dominance. The signs and symptoms of estrogen dominance are often seen in the form of exaggerated and painful PMS. Millions of Women Suffer From These Premenstrual Signs and Symptoms of Progesterone Deficiency: Breast Tenderness Mood Swings Fluid Retention and Weight Gain Headaches Cramps Clotting Irregular Cycles In Addition, Here are Some Other Symptoms of Progesterone Deficiency: Uterine Fibroids Breast Disease Endometriosis Infertility Miscarriage Joint Pain Muscle Pain Decreased Libido Panic Attacks How Does Progesterone Deficiency Happen? For the most part, it is the inevitable result of the aging process. A woman’s ovaries generally function best between a...

Finding Balance and Harmony

Incorporating ‘Balance and Harmony’ in every area of our lives is vitally important in our quest for health and happiness. In my practice, my goal is to empower my patients to attain both. Balancing Our Hormones = Harmony in Our Bodies Throughout our lives, both women and men will have hormonal changes that can affect their overall health. For instance, a woman can become what is called ‘Estrogen Dominant’, which means their body is producing too much Estrogen and not enough Progesterone. This can happen: During Puberty After Childbirth When taking birth control pills During midlife When taking synthetic Estrogen hormones When a woman is Estrogen Dominant, it can manifest in symptoms such as headaches, fluid retention and difficult, heavy periods. A lack of Progesterone can even trigger hypothyroidism, uterine fibroids and increase the...

Burning The Candle at Both Ends: Signs You May Have Adrenal Fatigue

How often have you felt ‘run down’ lately? Do you frequently feel tired, lethargic…even depressed? We, as women, want to succeed at each thing that we do. In this day and age, our responsibilities and commitments are constantly growing and we want to do them all well. From having a successful career to being a good mother, wife, sister, friend…it can sometimes leave you feeling exhausted, can’t it? The following is an excerpt from my book, I Am Woman: Our Journey to Health, Happiness and Harmony, on the topic of Adrenal Fatigue: Adrenal fatigue results when the adrenal glands function below the necessary level. Most commonly associated with intense or prolonged stress, it can also arise during or after acute infections or illnesses. As the name suggests,...

Low T

What’s All The Buzz About “Low T”

Strength. Tenacity. Confidence. Drive. Initiative. Virility. These are words that come to mind when we think of a healthy man. But as men age, they can often find that where they once felt these traits in themselves, those attributes have begun to wane. They aren’t quite themselves anymore and they can’t figure out why. Many men turn to options, such as Viagra, to decrease symptoms of low-testosterone, only to be challenged with a laundry list of side effects. What if, instead of temporarily helping a symptom such as: the loss of desire for sex, low energy, lack of drive, less ambition, weight gain, and loss of muscle mass, you could get to the root of the problem and eliminate it completely along with the symptoms that leave you...
