IS THE HORMONE OPTOMIZATION PROGRAM RIGHT FOR YOU?
Women who come to us usually have quite a few things in common:

- They’ve been told by the medical community that there is nothing wrong with them and they have been made to believe that antidepressants will fix their problems
- No medical professional has really sat down, listened, taken a comprehensive inventory and answered their questions.
- They fear that if they keep doing what they have been doing that they will have a more serious illness to contend with.
- They want to be pro-active and do something now to prevent a serious illness.
- They feel they’re not the woman they used to be. It’s getting harder and harder to fulfill their responsibilities to their families, their careers, and themselves.

HOW OUR FEMALE HORMONE OPTIMIZATION PROGRAM WORKS
HORMONE OPTIMIZATION THERAPY FOR WOMEN
Our endocrine system is devised of glands which produce and send hormones to all areas of our body to regulate essential function such as temperature, reproduction, growth, immunity and aging. It stands to reason that this is the hub of vitality, longevity and well-being. With proper testing and monitoring, hormone deficiencies can be completely reversed with a Functional and Integrative approach – and without standard prescribed medicines.

Let’s talk about the thyroid gland a bit.
THE THYROID “RUNS” OUR METABOLISM. IT IS THE “GAS PEDAL” OF THE BODY.
Thyroid hormones have a direct effect on most organs, including the heart, which beats faster and harder under the influence of increased thyroid hormones (this is why heart problems can often accompany chronic thyroid problems in women, and perhaps why heart problems are more common in women under the age of 50).
T3 is the more biologically active hormone. It’s more important for cellular function, and in fact, 80% of T4 is converted to T3 in the body’s peripheral tissues. Basically, T4 is just a precursor for the more active hormone, T3.
One of the problems in some thyroid disorders is that you may have trouble converting T4 to T3 in your tissues. Have you been checked for this? This can create a deficiency of T3, disrupting the body’s ability to properly regulate metabolism, which leads to specific symptoms.
There are some clinicians that are treating thyroid conditions with iodine. I do not recommend iodine in the treatment of thyroid conditions. According to renowned thyroid expert Dr. Datis Kharriazian, author of the book “Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms?”, using iodine to treat thyroid conditions is like throwing gasoline on a fire.

Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis is an autoimmune disorder in which the patient’s immune system attacks the thyroid. Patients that suffer from Hashimoto’s experience some or all of the above symptoms.
IS IT MY THYROID OR IS IT MENOPAUSE SYMPTOMS
We so often see the connection between thyroid dysfunction and menopause overlooked — not only by women but also by many healthcare providers.
After all, if you suffer from hypothyroidism, an underactive thyroid, we understand how easy it can be to attribute frustrating symptoms of weight gain, fatigue, poor concentration, and hair loss to menopause — and not realize that maybe something else is going on in the health puzzle. This is how our office differs from most conventional doctors. Reproductive hormone changes that naturally take place during menopause are accompanied by changes to thyroid function. If an imbalance or predisposition has been present but left unaddressed, it will lead to more pronounced symptoms of hypothyroidism during menopause this will be despite being told your thyroid is “normal.”
One of the best ways to enjoy healthy thyroid function is to rebuild a foundation of support for the endocrine system as a whole. This includes optimizing ratios between all your hormones during perimenopause and menopause — estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone — rather than targeting the level of any single hormone.
Many women develop a clinical thyroid problem during puberty, pregnancy or perimenopause and are put on lifelong medication and as a result often develop thyroid resistance.
Remember, hypothyroidism is rarely an isolated condition — especially in menopause. When you look at all the connections, you will start to understand that when the issues underlying hormonal imbalance are resolved, it’s amazing how much better you can feel.
LOW THYROID LEVELS
A full 90 percent of standard blood tests that a typical conventional doctor orders will not detect low thyroid levels. Consequently many women will be told their thyroid is “normal” when in truth it’s really not. Low thyroid levels can cause fatigue, depression and difficulty losing weight. Low Thyroid also increases the risk of heart disease and cancer.
Pituitary dysfunction stems from a variety of causes, including viruses, bacteria, stress, yeast, inflammation, toxins, Vaccines, Heavy Metals, pesticides, hormone creams and mitochondria dysfunction.
Adrenal exhaustion is often the cause of serious fatigue, hypoglycemia, Insulin Resistance and sleeping problems. Advanced Adrenal Saliva tests, like the ones used at the Naperville Institute For NeuroMetabolic Solutions are required for an accurate diagnosis. These tests are often not ordered by primary care physicians. The strength and health of your adrenal system are critical to your overall health.
