Believe it or not, there are some of us who will go through the “big change” (a.k.a. menopause) without needing any additional support. We wake up one day and our periods have simply 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? 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 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.
Science-backed Solution for Middle Age Weight Gain
Should we 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. There is no guess work involved. I base my approach on the B3H+® comprehensive blood test: HEALTH 365.
Comprehensive Blood Test for Weight Loss: 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 identifying the causes of your current health issues, diagnosing said issues, and assessing your risk of certain conditions. The test results reveal what is available and circulating in your blood and within your body’s cells. Knowing which hormones and nutrients are getting into your cells becomes an invaluable, essential component to creating an individualized, restorative, and successful health and weight loss program.
I diligently selected this specific panel of tests 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 purest, most high-quality 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 woman 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.
After several months on the correct and targeted supplement(s) I will do a retest, using the HEALTH 365 blood panel once again. The test results often reveal dramatic improvements in levels of specific vitamins, minerals, and hormones within the body.
