As we age, we stop being able to absorb the minerals and nutrients we need to stay healthy. Because your food must be digested before nutrients can be absorbed, many important amino acids, vitamins, and minerals are not able to get used by your body. When your body is not getting the nutrition it needs, it doesn’t function, look or feel as good as it should. Naturopathic Medicine Practitioner, Dr. Niki Young will work with you to identify exactly what nutrients you are missing, and in what amounts, so that you are able to get a customized IV Therapy treatment plan started. Intravenous (IV) Nutrient Therapy circumvents your digestive system by depositing the nutrients your body needs directly into your blood, allowing your body to immediately absorb the nutrition it is missing. Intravenous Nutrient Therapy supports your body’s natural healing capabilities, treats the common cold, helps muscles repair faster after workouts, and hydrates and energizes.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can be an important part of a naturopathic medicine treatment plan. As your body ages, your body stops producing hormones as the same rate as it used to. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, unlike synthetic hormone therapy, uses hormones that exactly match the chemical composition of the hormones produced by your body. When your endocrine system does not function as it should, we do not get the correct hormones in the correct doses when we need them. This causes a whole host of problems that affect your entire health system inclusive of your physical, emotional and mental states. Naturopathic Medicine and BHRT Doctor, Niki young, N.D. specializes in using these natural hormones to balance your body without unwanted side effects. By bringing your body back into hormonal balance, you will have more energy, mental clarity, and feelings of good health. Read more about how Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help you.
Additional Services Offered by Niki Young, N.D.:
- Anti-Aging Medicine
- Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help to reduce the signs and symptoms of aging, and it is one of the primary therapies used in anti-aging medicine. Physicians agree that the signs and symptoms of aging often occur due to hormonal loss, and as women and men age, the body becomes unable to produce an adequate amount of hormones. Because hormones control a wide number of functions, restoring them to normal levels can help to improve energy, sexual function, hair growth, metabolism, and emotions. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy has helped numerous men and women improve their overall quality of life and battle the effects of aging.
- Nutritional Counseling
Proper nutrition is essential to balancing overall levels of health and wellness, and without an adequate supply of nutrients, women and men cannot produce hormones. A lack of healthy cholesterol can make it impossible for the body to produce testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone, and in people that do not take in enough vitamins and minerals, the body may not have enough energy to produce a healthy amount of hormones. Improving nutrition and balancing hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can drastically improve overall levels of health and wellness in individuals.
- Botanical Medicine
- Botanical Medicine can help to alleviate numerous ailments that may occur as a person ages, and they can help with digestive issues, gynecological issues, fertility, hot flashes, night sweats, and headaches. While Botanical Medicine is effective in treating several ailments, when they are combined with a Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy program, a person can balance their hormones and alleviate symptoms more effectively. The symptoms of perimenopause, menopause, and andropause can be reduced or eliminated through the use of Botanical Medicine and Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.
- Vitamin Supplementation
- Vitamins are important for maintaining bodily functions and maintaining overall health. Certain processes in the body require vitamins, such as the production of hormones. If vitamins are not sufficient in the body, hormones can decline and men and women may experience hormonal imbalances. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can supplement deficiencies and supplementing vitamins can benefit overall levels of health and wellness.
- Testosterone Replacement
- As men begin to age, the body becomes unable to produce adequate amounts of testosterone, which is the primary male sex hormone. Testosterone helps men to have healthy libido, high energy levels, speedy metabolism, and increased muscle mass. When testosterone levels begin to decline, men can suffer from several symptoms, which may include hair loss, muscle atrophy, fatigue, anxiety, thinning bones, aggression, erectile dysfunction, increased abdominal fat, and low libido. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help men with falling hormone levels to restore testosterone to healthy levels and decrease the effects of testosterone decline.
- Lab Testing
The clinic offers several lab tests, including tests that help patients determine if they have deficient hormone levels. Upon determining hormone levels, a physician can prescribe a customized Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy program to replace deficient estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, melatonin, cortisol, Human Growth Hormone, or Thyroid Hormone.
A naturopathic doctor can help you to address all levels of your health naturally. Expert medical support can provide you with a personalized treatments plan treating the root of your symptoms to bring you back to a state of wellness.
