Our naturopathic doctors are passionate about women’s health and a significant part of that is hormone balancing. Hormones impact every bodily function and balanced hormones are the key to re-energize your body, digestion, energy and soul to help you reach optimal health. Although most of our patients come from Coquitlam, Port Moody and Port Coquitlam, many visit from other parts of Greater Vancouver for hormone balancing.The prevalence of busy, stress-filled lifestyles combined with our western diet and its effects on the body, negatively impact all of our hormones. Hormone imbalance is an area of naturopathic medicine that is growing exponentially, and upon which we address on a daily basis. The naturopathic doctors at Halcyon Cosmetic Clinic provide diagnostic testing and treatment plans that includes educating you on how best to work with your own body’s physiology. Treatments may include, but are not limited to, bioidentical hormone replacement, energy boost or adrenal injections, acupuncture, nutritional counselling and meal planning. The bonus is that In addition to feeling great, balanced hormones are also the foundation to genuine rejuvenation and looking your best!
Common concerns often related to hormone imbalance include:
Most women can benefit from hormones balancing, but it is especially important for those struggling with adrenal fatigue, anxiety, depression, weight gain, loss of libido, irregular periods, vaginal dryness, itchy skin, and memory loss.
Discovering a hormone imbalance such as with malfunction of your thyroid gland, and correcting it with medication, can have some people feeling better within days. In more complex cases, improvement might be more gradual.
Our naturopaths have access to blood, saliva and urine testing and will do what is best in your unique situation.
The cost of hormone testing varies but, unlike some clinics, Halcyon Cosmetic does not profit from this type of testing. Our naturopaths insist that clients who genuinely need testing, and whose health can be significantly improved with testing, should be able to access it as affordably as possible.
Balanced hormones do not cause cancer but hormone imbalance, including estrogen dominance, certainly can contribute. Our naturopaths practice hormone balancing using the most natural ways possible and, if they determine hormone replacement therapy to be necessary, it is carefully prescribed.
