Hormone Replacement Therapy & Testing
We offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. There are many factors that can contribute to hormone imbalance or insufficiency. Hormones play major roles in skin, bone, brain function, muscle, fat metabolism, mood and sex drive. Contact us to check whether your hormone levels are where they should be.
Many physicians are not ordering extensive lab tests to determine hormone insufficiency. Get tested to find out if insufficient hormones are contributing to your symptoms
Detoxification & Toxicity Testing
Did you know researchers at two major laboratories found an average of 200 industrial chemicals and pollutants in umbilical cord blood sampled from infants?

The liver and kidneys can aid in some detoxification, but have not caught up to the degree of exposure we've had since the Industrial Revolution. Detoxification is also dependent on sufficient nutrient status--is your diet ideal? Here's a list of toxicants we can test for & screen immune reactivity to:
Heavy metals (mercury, lead, arsenic), Bisphenol A (BPA), mold toxins, glyphosate (pesticides), parabens, formaldehyde and benzens, cadmium, thallium, gadolinium (MRI contrast)
