Dr. Linda Marquez Goodine, D.C.
Natural Hormone Balance
Typically, female patients tend to seek my help when confronting PMS symptoms, infertility, perimenopause, and menopause challenges. The traditional allopathic approach can be invasive and far from natural including the most popular rage of bio identical hormone therapies for menopause, birth control pills for acne, and artificial donor insemination.
Unfortunately, current lifestyle trends are also making it more difficult for young girls to have painless menstrual cycles, women to conceive, and an effortless transition into menopause.
The Functional Medicine Approach
Hormones are the body’s language of communication. Hormones influence most of the body's functions and affect life events such as the timing of a young girl's first menstrual cycle (and menstrual pain), the body's readiness to conceive, and the transition into cessation of conceiving.
Hormone health is significantly affected by a person's lifestyle which includes diet, stress management, sleep quality, exercise, the people you surround yourself with, and toxic chemicals in the environment.
In functional medicine, the approach is to get to the root cause of the problem and to determine what is causing the body to malfunction and resolve it. That is why our approach includes an extensive new patient questionnaire, typically a one hour initial consultation to review patient history, decide on PROPER testing to help get to the root cause of the problem, and create a personalized plan that can include various natural modalities from nutritional supplementation, herbs, dietary changes, detox if needed, and the best exercise regimen based on diagnostic testing results.
We have seen many patients thrive with the desired outcome by using our natural, drugless approach, while listening to the patient's needs and providing effective and lasting results.
