The body makes over 100 hormones, at Innovative Health we take hormone management to a new level by using the latest testing methods: including, saliva, urine, blood spot and serum testing. We provide comprehensive balancing of sex hormones such as estrogen, progesterone and testosterone, but we understand that hormone balance is about more than just estrogen. Achieving balance is achieved by understanding the effect of these hormones on metabolism, as well as their interactions with other hormones such as DHEA, cortisol, pregnenolone, neurotransmitters, and growth hormone precursors.
At Innovative Health we believe that the art of evaluating and treating hormone imbalance is a highly individualized process and only a part of overall optimal health. Additionally we understand that hormone balancing takes time and must be done systematically over a period of time to achieve the best results. A key element of hormone balance includes setting a standard for our patients that is optimal as compared to within the normal range.
Innovative Health utilizes a "systems approach" to hormone balancing taking into consideration that hormonal imbalance in one area translate to imbalances in the entire system. This approach allows for deep insight into the interactions between hormones and the genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors in order to provide a comprehensive understanding of the patient.
There are hundreds of tests available to help us understand our patient's unique biology. For example there are tests for mold exposure testing (linked to chronic fatigue and a weakened immune), heavy metal testing (linked to neurological symptoms and cardiovascular disease), hormone pathway testing (checking not just levels of hormones but what they are actually do within the body) and advanced cardiometabolic testing (that look deeply into cardiovascular risk) just to name a few. At Innovative Health we understand that simply being "in the normal reference range" on lab testing does not produces optimal health.
