Natural Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for Men & Women

Do you have hormone imbalance?

Hormone imbalance refers to a disruption in the normal level of hormones produced in the ovaries (women), testicles (men), adrenal, or thyroid glands. The delicate balance between this interconnected hormonal system can be offset by a number of stressors, nutritional deficiencies, and environmental exposures leading to a broad range of symptoms.

As part of your initial assessment, your naturopathic doctor will order comprehensive hormone testing to identify your specific hormone imbalances and create a wellness plan using diet and lifestyle recommendations, nutritional supplements and, when appropriate, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.

How does this happen?

Our hormones play a major role in our body and effect how we look, feel and function. Life stressors from taking care of the family, commuting, working long hours, poor sleep, unhealthy eating habits, environmental toxins and other forms of physical and emotional stress can disrupt our natural hormone balance leading to changes in energy level, mood, weight, sleep quality, skin and simply not feeling like yourself.

IV Nutrient therapy is the intravenous use of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients for therapeutic benefits.

How can IV Therapy benefit you?

Boost Athletic Performance and Recovery: Whether you are training for a marathon, triathlon, 5K, or other sporting event, a series of IV treatments can help you take your performance to the next level and decrease recovery time.

Enhance Wound Healing: Optimize post-surgery recovery by giving your body adequate amounts of specific vitamins and minerals involved in the wound healing process.

Immune Support: Traveling, stressful events and working long hours can increase your risk of getting sick. Prevent colds and flu by keeping your immune system strong with immune-enhancing vitamins, minerals and herbs.

Optimize Health: For those already in good health, IV nutritional therapy can maintain or improve your nutritional status with formulas customized to your individual needs.

Treat Specific Health Conditions: IV nutrient therapy can be very effective for treating chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, headaches, diabetes, PMS, malnutrition, muscle tension and viral infections.

How does IV Therapy work?

IV therapy works at the cellular level by getting nutrients where they are needed most for optimal cellular health and fast, effective results. During IV treatment, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other nutrients are delivered directly into the blood stream at a high concentration. The high concentration of vitamins and minerals given through an IV solution drives the nutrients into cells for maximum cellular absorption not attainable through oral supplementation.

What is the advantage of IV treatment over taking a multivitamin?

Nutrient levels can become depleted from stressful situations, toxin exposure, long-term use of medications, chronic health conditions, and mental/physical exertion. Nutritional deficiencies can occur if these vitamins and minerals are not adequately replaced. Diseases often manifest from poor nutritional status and once this occurs it can be difficult to replete those nutrients with oral supplementation.

A multivitamin must be absorbed through the digestive system. Absorption depends on many factors including the form, dose, and time of intake of the vitamin, as well as the function of the digestive system. Many health conditions and medications can impair the digestive process resulting in poor absorption of nutrients. For these reasons, IV therapy is far superior.

Nutrients given intravenously completely bypass the digestive system and go directly into the blood stream for 100% absorption. Vitamins and minerals can also be given at much higher doses than possible through the oral route for optimal therapeutic response.

How long is a treatment session?

During your treatment you will spend 45 min -1hour relaxing in our comfortable reclining chairs while receiving a custom blend of vitamin and minerals to replenish your body.

Can I test my vitamin and mineral levels?

We provide specialized blood testing that measures your individual nutrient status. This allows targeted nutritional support with customized IV solutions based on your individual level of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids.

Food Allergy Testing

Are the foods you eat making you sick?

Do you have chronic, nagging or debilitative symptoms, yet your doctor says everything is normal? You may be part of the growing number of people with a delayed-type food allergy.

What are the symptoms of Food Allergy?

Food allergies are associated with a wide range of mental, emotional and physical symptoms affecting virtually every part of the body. Symptoms related to food allergy include fatigue, anxiety, depression, recurrent colds, ear infections, yeast infections, chronic nasal congestion, postnasal drip, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, diarrhea, ulcerative colitis, crohnç—´ disease, high blood pressure, eczema, hives, muscle aches, joint pain and stiffness, headaches, and asthma.

Many of these symptoms mimic other conditions and people often get misdiagnosed with another condition. It is important however when considering the diagnosis of food allergy to rule out other conditions which can present similarly.

Why are food sensitivities difficult to recognize?

Food sensitivities tend to develop from foods that we eat often and produce a broad range of symptoms that vary from person to person. Symptoms can take hours to several days to appear after eating the offending food, making it difficult to connect symptoms with the foods we are eating

What are the causes of Food Allergy?

  • Regular consumption of processed foods containing many similar ingredients and high in preservatives, artificial colorings and flavorings.
  • Impaired digestion such as from a deficiency in stomach acid or pancreatic enzymes leading to inadequate breakdown of food.
  • Genetically modified foods result in food components that cross-react with normal tissues. In other words, the immune system develops antibodies to genetically modified food antigens that have a similar chemical structure to your own tissues.
  • Decreased stomach acid from stress and chronic use of acid-blocking drugs for heartburn (pepsid, zantac, etc.).
  • Inflammation and damage to the intestinal lining from viruses, fungi, and toxic bacteria.
  • Disruption of the normal balance of healthy intestinal flora from antibiotic use.

How do I know if I have a food sensitivity?
We test for food allergies with a blood test that measures your immune response to 96 common foods. Each assessment includes a visual representation of your antibody levels against each specific food tested and dietary guidelines based on your individual results.

Detoxification

The Importance of Detoxification

Our bodies naturally detoxify on a continuous basis to remove metabolic by-products and toxins in order to keep our system functioning optimally. The constant exposure to toxins in our environment from pollution and pesticides puts an enormous amount of stress on our organs of detoxification, the liver and kidneys. When our detox pathways become overburdened from increased exposure and/or impaired elimination of toxins, these harmful substances circulate throughout the body contributing to the development of chronic conditions like autoimmune diseases, allergies, fibromyalgia, arthritis, chronic fatigue, and neurological disorders.

Detoxification is essential for optimal health. Just as you would take your car in for an oil change to keep it running smoothly, your body requires regular “tune-ups” to remove the accumulation of unwanted compounds and keep you feeling your best.

What are the benefits of a detox?

  • Mental clarity
  • Improved digestion
  • Increased energy
  • Decreased inflamation
  • Weight loss
  • Better sleep

Our detox program
Our doctor-guided cleanse will give you the tools and support you need to clear your body of toxic build-up and leave you feeling rejuvenated and renewed.

  • Dietary guidelines with meal plans and recipes
  • Nutrient support to enhance the detoxification process
  • Recommendations and guidelines for lifestyle factors and physical medicine modalities to incorporate into your daily routine during the cleansing process.

If you are feeling tired and sluggish or simply looking for a great way to maintain good health, our detox program is a great place to start. Call our office for more details or to schedule an appointment.

Medical Weight Loss

Many of our patients come to us frustrated that they cannot lose weight despite diet and exercise.  The underlying cause can often be attributed to hormone imbalance, nutritional deficiencies, or poor detoxification.  Our approach to weight loss involves addressing these causative factors as well as helping you create healthy eating and exercise habits in order to achieve your weight loss goals.

Our HCG weight loss and Lean Body programs are designed to support healthy weight loss and long term success by helping you lose fat while maintaining lean muscle.  We provide you with the tools and support needed for the entire course of the program to ensure maximum results.

The HCG weight loss and Lean Body programs include:

  • Consultation and evaluation with a Trio doctor
  • Laboratory testing
  • Program orientation and Guidebook
  • Weekly progress checks with the doctor
  • Nutritional supplements to support and enhance the weight loss process

Additional Support:

B12 injection: A key vitamin involved in fat metabolism and energy production.  It helps stabilize mood, support the immune system and increase stamina.

Slender shot (Methionine, Inositol, Choline and vitamin B12): A combination of lipotropic nutrients that help the body utilize fat and cholesterol for enhanced fat metabolism.  Vitamin B12 serves as a cofactor in energy production, fat metabolism and helps balance mood to control cravings.

Beach Body injection (Slender shot + L-carnitine): Provides the same benefits as the slender shot with the addition of L-carnitine, an amino acid that increases fat metabolism.

At Trio Natural Medicine we offer specialized lab tests to identify the root cause of symptoms.  These tests provide powerful insight into how your body is functioning and will help guide us in determining the most effective treatment plan for you.

Tests that we offer:

  • Comprehensive Blood Test (includes full thyroid panel)
  • Hormone Panel (Male and Female)
  • Food Allergy Testing
  • Stool Testing (bacteria, yeast, parasites)
  • Sibo Breath Test
  • Adrenal/Cortisol Test
  • Heavy Metal Testing
  • Metabolic/Nutritional Testing

Are you getting the nutrients your body needs?

When you are deficient in vitamins, minerals or antioxidants, your immune system becomes suppressed and your body doesn’t have the nutrients necessary for optimal function.  This can contribute to degenerative processes such as arthritis, cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.  You could be deficient and not even know it because standard test results do not measure if the nutrient is properly functioning within the body.

The micronutrient test that we offer can measure the function of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other essential micronutrients within your white blood cells.  Unlike conventional serum testing, this analysis can reveal your functional nutrient status over a much longer period of time than conventional serum testing.

But I eat a healthy diet, exercise and take a multivitamin…

University research shows that 50% of people taking multivitamins are still nutritionally deficient.  Here’s why:

Absorption:  If your body does not absorb the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other essential micronutrients properly, you may still have deficiencies.

Biochemical Individuality:  We are metabolically and biochemically unique, which means each person’s requirements may be different.

Chronic Conditions:  Health conditions such as fatigue, fibromyalgia, and diabetes can be affected by micronutrient deficiencies.

Lifestyle:  Micronutrient demands can be affected by physical activity, prescription drugs, stress, smoking and drinking.

 Aging:  Absorption difficulties, especially of vitamin B12, often occur as we age.

Micronutrient testing will measure your individual levels of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, and fatty acids.  Specific deficiencies will be identified and can be corrected with oral supplementation and/or IV vitamin therapy.
