Hormone Balancing Through Functional Medicine
At Dr. Michael Veselak’s practice, we understand that hormonal imbalances can significantly impact your well-being, whether you’re male or female. Our Functional Medicine approach to hormone balancing is designed to address a range of conditions, from PMS and PCOS to Perimenopause, Menopause, Andropause, and low testosterone, with a personalized and holistic perspective.
Understanding Hormonal Imbalances:
Hormones play a crucial role in maintaining various bodily functions, including mood, energy levels, metabolism, and reproductive health. Imbalances in hormones can lead to a range of symptoms and health concerns. Here’s how Functional Medicine approaches hormonal imbalances:
PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome): Our approach to PMS involves identifying the root causes of your symptoms. This may include dietary modifications, stress management techniques, and addressing nutrient deficiencies to alleviate discomfort and mood swings.
PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome): Functional Medicine focuses on improving insulin sensitivity, managing inflammation, and optimizing hormone balance to address the underlying causes of PCOS and support fertility and overall well-being.
Perimenopause and Menopause: We tailor treatment plans to help manage the hormonal fluctuations that occur during perimenopause and menopause. This includes hormone replacement therapy options, lifestyle adjustments, and natural remedies to ease symptoms like hot flashes and mood swings.
Andropause (Male Menopause): Functional Medicine recognizes that hormonal changes affect men as they age. We work to balance testosterone levels through lifestyle modifications, nutritional support, and hormone replacement therapy when necessary to address symptoms like fatigue and low libido.
Low Testosterone: Our approach to low testosterone includes evaluating potential underlying causes, such as nutritional deficiencies and lifestyle factors. We then develop customized strategies to optimize testosterone levels and improve overall vitality.
Our Comprehensive Approach:
Personalized Evaluation: We conduct comprehensive assessments, including hormone testing and analysis of lifestyle factors, to create individualized treatment plans.
Nutritional Support: Diet plays a significant role in hormone balance. We provide guidance on dietary changes and supplementation to support hormonal health.
Lifestyle Modifications: Stress management, exercise, and sleep are vital for hormone balance. We help you implement lifestyle changes to promote overall well-being.
Supplementation: In some cases, supplements may be recommended to address specific deficiencies and optimize hormone function.
Education and Support: We believe in empowering our patients with knowledge about their hormonal health and treatment options, so you can actively participate in your journey to hormonal balance.
