Hormone imbalances are one of the most apparent conditions we address with our patients. Most people come in with full recognition of hot flashes, irregular menses, weight gain, loss of libido, moodiness, sweating, and fatigue. Especially with women, balanced hormones really dictate your quality of life and put you back in the driver’s seat. The 5 major hormones that we address are estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol, and DHEA. Using applied kinesiology, we assess the way your nervous system reacts to each and can recommend reliable saliva testing when necessary.
Entering menopause does not have to be a torturous process. One thing all woman should know is that a major role of estrogen in a female body is to control inflammation.

It is very important to keep the right amount of estrogen in your body to help prevent early degeneration due to low estrogen levels and increased inflammation.
