Total health and wellness is about your journey to reaching an overall balance that is best for your body. This balance can include nutrition, exercise, vitamins or supplements, and prescription medications that help maintain and support a healthy lifestyle. The right hormone balance is also important in order for our bodies to function properly. This is true for both men and women.
At Total Health & Wellness, we understand that balance is important and that everyone has individualized needs. Each hormone replacement treatment is unique because customizing therapy is key to finding the balance you’re looking for. But, when considering hormone therapy, where do we start?
To help you find your unique balance, we provide saliva hormone testing. Saliva collection is painless, non-invasive and can be done in the convenience and privacy of your own home.
How do hormones work and why are they important?
Hormones work somewhat like a lock and key in that they each have a unique shape that can only bind to special receptors in order to activate. Because both the vagina and clitoris have testosterone receptors, the production of that hormone plays a massive role in the sexual health, function, and satisfaction of women. I call hormones tiny little sparkles!
If a delicate balance of hormones is not maintained, it can feel as though our entire world is upside down. We can start to feel anxious, irritable, angry, sad, and depressed. Unfortunately, starting as early as their 30s, women can experience a decrease in hormone levels.
Is testosterone therapy or a customized hormone cream right for me?
Far too often, women notice unwanted changes that make them feel like they are not themselves anymore. My patients have said that they feel stuck in a body they do not recognize. If you have not been feeling like yourself lately, it’s time for us to have a chat. The only way for us to find out whether or not testosterone pellet therapy or customized hormone therapy is the right choice for you is to schedule a consultation with a practitioner that you can trust.
We will examine your symptoms and your current hormone levels with a saliva test. Realistically, for most women, medication is only one critical part of achieving the pinnacle of health and wellness. I will design a holistic program that addresses your Total Wellness which may include a nutrition plan, and restoration of your gut and spiritual health. This will be a personalized plan that fully incorporates your body’s needs as well as your short-term and long-term goals.
Testosterone also stimulates the skin which, in turn, produces more oil. This means that our skin is wrinkle-free and maintains a youthful glow, while our hair is thick and silky smooth. Saliva testing is a non-invasive collection method where you collect your saliva in a plastic tube to measure hormones from the privacy of your own home or office. “Uncover and rediscover a new you!”
