Believe it or not, there are some of us who will go through the big “Change” without needing any additional support. We wake up one day and our periods have just stopped. We do not experience the most common symptoms of night sweats, mood swings, fatigue, weight gain, hot flashes, inflammation or sleep disturbances.
But, unfortunately ladies this ideal scenario will not be the case for most of us. Most of us will have to seek additional support for relief during this time of transformation. The good news is that our approach can start with the most simple strategies to rebalance our delicate hormonal system. We can begin by improving on and changing our diets, in addition to starting an exercise program that works with our 40+ years-young bodies. Exercise, lifestyle and dietary modification can make some significant improvements in our metabolic rate, insulin sensitivity (i.e. how well we handle blood sugar increases after a meal), gut health and our immune system response. But, if we do not experience relief with these more common, therapeutic modalities, then, and only then, do we move onto another strategy and solution. This is when it becomes essential for us to use key supplements to help reset and restore balance in our body. It will be a combination of the correct vitamins, minerals and supplements, in addition to a nutritious diet and lifestyle that results in the relief of perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms.
As a woman’s health expert and functional medicine doctor I know which supplemental protocols to recommend and prescribe. This is not something I guess will work for you, but based on the B3H+® comprehensive blood test, HEALTH 365. This exclusive, in-depth panel of tests is the only way to accurately measure levels of essential vitamins, minerals and hormones. In addition, HEALTH 365 measures essential enzymes, CoQ10, antioxidants, beta-carotene and folate levels. It also offers a reliable and valid basis for diagnosing your current health issues, the causes of them and your risk of certain conditions. The test results reveal what is available and circulating in the blood and within the body’s cells. Knowing which hormones and nutrients are getting into your cells becomes an invaluable, essential component to creating an individualized, restorative health and sucessful weight loss program.
I carefully chose this specific panel of test so that you do not have to guess which supplements will provide relief for a particular imbalance or health requirement. With HEALTH 365 I am able to uncover the exact hormone imbalances and nutrient deficits, and then recommend the highest quality and purity vitamins, minerals and supplements to get your mind and body working in perfect harmony again. All the supplements I recommend have been shown to be effective in rebalancing and resetting a specific health condition or imbalance in the body. For example, if a women is experiencing hot flashes, night sweats, and insomnia she would greatly benefit from a liver detoxification supplement which can assist in removing excess estrogens. This may be the only supplement that is needed to restore and reset her particular hormonal imbalance. Then, after several months on the correct and targeted supplement(s) I will do a retest, using the bloodpanel again. The test results often reveal dramatic improvements in levels of specific vitamins, minerals and hormones.
This delicate, but thorough science-based approach ensures that your best efforts to optimize your health and weight loss through good nutrition and lifestyle changes are paying off! Plus, and maybe even more importantly is the frustration, problems and annoyances of perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms become a distant memory. Now you can get back to flourishing and thriving during this uniquely female life stage!
Finally, I really need to emphasize that we embrace all women and the challenges that this transitional time may bring each of you. Thus, our mission at Balance 3H Plus® is revolutionize the perception and experience of the big “Change” for women by finding a lasting and balanced solution to menopausal symptoms and weight gain!
