This is one of the most common complaints I hear when I see a clients struggling with hormonal issues.
Has your doctor given you the pill to help with any of the following:
If not the pill, then was your only other option an antidepressant or antianxiety drug to possibly help?
Enough Is Enough!
Also, did you know that when you're on the pill you're not having a real period? You're just having a pharmaceutically induced pill bleed. The pill works by stopping your brains communication with your ovaries. Combination birth control pills provide a large dose of synthetic estrogen and progesterone which shut down your own production of hormones and you don't ovulate. It also comes with some significant risks and side effects which some include the following:
Increased risk for thyroid problems
Increased risk for depression and anxiety
Increased risk for stroke and heart attack
Increased risk for estrogen related cancers
Our Bodies Give Us Symptoms For A Reason
Instead of managing symptoms with a drug that does not fix the root cause, let me help guide you into looking at your health in a whole new light! That is exactly what functional medicine entails.
Once you see the triggers causing all the inflammation and hormonal imbalance within your body, you will be given a step by step plan on how to begin to reverse these symptoms.
My Approach to Restoring Balance:
Test for pathogens or other toxins using functional lab tests
Thyroid evaluation using a full thyroid panel, not just a TSH
Whole food nutrition and individualized diets
Supplemental therapy to support the body to be able to open up drainage pathways to be able to effectively detox and clear toxins
Herbs and vitamins to relieve symptoms, correct deficiencies, and to help balance hormones
Stress reduction through modifying both your external and internal environment
