Women’s Hormones – Taking A Functional Medicine Approach

Are you needing help with your hormones? 

Functional health is a much more personal approach to healthcare. It ensures that each patient is treated according to their specific needs and imbalances individually, rather than treated as a diagnosis.  As a functional medicine nurse practitioner myself, I can’t tell you how rewarding it is to see how people’s health can improve when root causes of their health issues are addressed.

The ultimate goal is to return the body and mind to optimum balance and functionality.  Functional healthcare can often provide the most preferable route for women to embark upon to solve their hormone related health issues.

Many of the following conditions are the result of a hormone imbalance and functional healthcare can help with things such as: 

  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Migraine Headaches
  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Insomnia and Sleep Disorders
  • Digestive Issues
  • Obesity and Weight Management
  • Hormonal Imbalances
  • Menopause
  • PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome)
  • Fertility Problems
  • Postpartum Issues

How Does it Work?

By using all-natural methods and personalized care, functional healthcare aims to enable patients to not only cure their ailments but get to the root cause of them as well. Whether it be herbal medicine, nutritional therapy, or stress management, functional medicine techniques can greatly reduce the severity of many health complications and by doing so help to prevent them from progressing further.

Becoming better aware of your health issues and their potential causes, triggers, and treatments is a part of how functional medicine helps you to heal yourself and STAY healed. Getting to know all aspects of your health issue and implementing positive change to avoid them worsening cultivates awareness both in your body and in your mind in order to achieve optimum health.

Boosting hormonal function is vital in overall physical and mental health, Estrogen, in particular, is associated with the proper functioning of the female reproductive system, among many other benefits.

Try these foods for healthy hormones:

  • Seeds: flax seeds and sesame seeds
  • Fruit: apricots, oranges, strawberries, and peaches
  • Vegetables: yams, carrots, alfalfa sprouts, kale, and celery
  • Legumes: lentils, peas, and pinto beans
  • Olives and olive oil
  • Chickpeas

Including these foods in your diet will help lower your risk of developing hormonal imbalances!  Knowing your hormone numbers can be an important first step in guiding your care to better hormone balance.  I believe the best way to evaluate hormones is through dried urine testing for comprehensive hormones (DUTCH test).  This has been a game changer in my practice and the women I care for.  If you would like to learn more about the DUTCH test, click here now.
