Dr. Rush offers a variety of natural options to help balance hormones.
Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (aka BHRT)
A little about hormones...
We've heard of the connection between hormones and
things like certain cancers, sleep disturbances, menopause,
and even andropause (menopause for men - yes, we can't
leave them out). But did you know that we can do more to
prevent those imbalances then you might think? That's
Hormones enter the cell to work on such jobs as governing
our growth, development, mental and physical functions all
through our life.
Some might experience changes to their hormones as early
as their 30's. But balancing the hormones can have a
profound effect on how you move through your life and any
changes coming your way. See video here.
Dr. Rush uses Salivary Hormone Testing for the best results. Not
all hormones are best represented in the blood. Here's why. Some
hormones are lipophilic, which means they are "fat loving", while
some are hydrophilic, meaning they are "water loving." Usually the
hormones that women are concerned with balancing during
menopause are the lipophilic ones, like the estrogens and
progesterone. If we draw blood, a water medium, to check their
levels, their results won't be as accurate.
Salivary Hormone Testing allows us to capture and analyze BOTH
types of hormones - hydrophilic and lipophilic. The saliva has to be
able to break up both fat soluble foods and water soluble foods for
further digestion in our gut. Plus, it's much less stressful then
having a needle in your arm.
