I have always been an insanely positive person. Always. Then menopause hit, and my journey to finding my way back to happiness began. I have always been a very well read woman when it comes to female issues. I have had many friends describe their symptoms during menopause and felt I was well prepared for when it hit me. I was wrong. My journey continued for at least 5 long years until I finally felt like myself again.
I had been to 3 different OB GYN’s, a family practice Dr., a therapist, (just one visit to diagnose me with ADHD), all with no luck. Here were my symptoms: lack of energy, a feeling of being overwhelmed at all times, weight gain, sadness, and the biggest disappointment was finally being in a place where I knew we, (my family) should all be happy and not being happy.
At the Nourishing Wellness Medical Center, we feel these very valuable blood and urine tests (frequently not ordered by your primary care doctors) can provide early insight into obstacles or health issues that go un-diagnosed. When imbalances are caught early, changes in diet, exercise and supplements can very often shift your body back into balance.
As a Functional Doctor/ Dietitian team, we are interested in the root cause of your symptoms. We ask the questions such as, “Why is your insulin or homocysteine so high? What is really going on in your body ?” or “Why are so many people on statin drugs and heart medication as precautionary measures?”
