Hormones are messengers that carry instruction to any body cell to ‘do something’
The AHPTA axis [Amygdala, Hypothalamus, Pituitary, Thyroid, Adrenal] monitor blood levels and reacts to changes in ‘Homeostasis'[balance].
Our body produces:
- stress hormones needed for adaptation and ‘fight or flight’ response
- digestive hormones to allow proper digestion through digestive fluids
- sex hormones needed for fertility and reproduction
- immune hormones associate with repair and healing
Diet plays a major role in providing the raw material for hormonal production. Lack of nutrients and hormonal imbalances can lead to the following:
- PMS, Endometriosis, PCOS, Infertility
- Cardiovascular disease, Chronic diseases, Fatigue
- Neurotransmitter imbalance associated problems including anxiety, depression
- Sleep issues
- Indigestion, malabsorption, IBS
- Skin issues
In the clinic we will assess your nutritional and hormonal status.
We will provide effective dietary and lifestyle changes to support the healing process.
We will suggest available and appropriate laboratory testing.
