Women come to me for solutions, but first they want to know why I’m successful when many other health professionals have failed.
First of all, my team and I look at the whole person. We understand that people are not made up of separate systems (brain, gut, cardiovascular, circulatory, digestive, reproductive) as the conventional medical establishment views us. We are comprised of interconnected systems. By looking below the surface of symptoms, we’re able to find the root causes of health problems.
We don’t say, “It’s in your head” or “You’ll just have to live with it.” We are fierce health detectives who search until we find answers.
Some women are told they’re “too young” to be perimenopausal with hot flashes, insomnia and moodiness, so no treatment is offered. We recognize that the perimenopause transition actually starts in the mid-30s, and our restorative treatments prevent a tremendous amount of suffering, loss of joy and even marriage break-ups.
Menopausal women who lack vitality and energy are given renewed life with the programs at our center. We help women get back to feeling like themselves, and more so. We also address problems of excess estrogen, such as uterine fibroids, heavy menstrual bleeding and endometriosis. We know there are underlying problems that cause excess estrogen, which include poor diet and environmental pollutants that can prevent the body from staying hormonally balanced.
The bad press hormones used to get has persisted somewhat. It started back when the Women’s Health Initiative used synthetic and animal-derived hormonal products on women, which caused a variety of health problems, increased breast cancer and strokes for starters.
However, with the use of bioidentical hormones that are chemically identical to the ones your body produces, there is no increased risk. We are able to give hormones safely and without risk, and you get all the benefits.
Hormones are like fertilizer for the beautiful flowers in your garden. They nourish our brains, arteries, bones and skin. Women who go through early menopause lose brain power and incur an increased risk of dementia. Women on estrogen look years younger as well because estrogen supports our skin and underlying collagen structures.
We also specialize in autoimmune disease, gastrointestinal issues, and memory and cognition problems. We look at root causes, such as heavy metal and mold toxicity, viral infections and food sensitivities. We use cutting edge laboratory testing to evaluate and treat these illnesses. We believe in treating root causes for a permanent solution rather than treating symptoms on a long-term, chronic basis.
We offer a free consultation to find out about your top health problems and to see if we have a solution for you. Our team is comprised of Susan Sklar, M.D., Nicole Daddona, N.D. specializing in herbal medicine, and Jessica Craig, a functional nutritionist and health coach who helps you implement our recommendations.
