Bioidentical Hormones are the same chemical structure as the hormones you make naturally. Even though hormones are natural and bioidentical hormones match your natural hormones, we also have to detoxify our hormones in order for the body to be balanced. Our doctors often test the actual hormone detoxification pathway to evaluate how well you get rid of your used-up hormones before you embark on a bioidentical hormones replacement. This extra testing helps you and your doctor make the right decisions about the safety and efficacy of your treatment process.
Adrenal fatigue is a collection of signs and symptoms, known as a syndrome, that results when the adrenal glands function below the necessary level. Most commonly associated with intense or prolonged stress, it can also arise during or after acute or chronic infections, especially respiratory infections such as influenza, bronchitis or pneumonia. As the name suggests, its paramount symptom is fatigue that is not relieved by sleep but it is not a readily identifiable entity like measles or a growth on the end of your finger. You may look and act relatively normal with adrenal fatigue and may not have any obvious signs of physical illness, yet you live with a general sense of unwell, tiredness or “gray” feelings. People experiencing adrenal fatigue often have to use coffee, colas and other stimulants to get going in the morning and to prop themselves up during the day. Fatigue can be repaired, We can show you how.
Our Weight Loss Programs are designed and overseen by Physicians and Certified Nutritionist who will work with you to create a program that is both medically and nutritionally sound, based on your bio-individuality. We use laboratory testing to create your program based on your results. If you have struggled with yo-yo dieting or weight loss resistance; it is not your fault. Your weight loss resistance may be due to an out of balance body: hormonal balance, metabolic imbalance, toxicity, and poor sleep to name a few.
At Living Well Health and Wellness Center, we are committed to helping you reach optimal health by identifying your unique underlying causes of disease and treating those – not symptoms. We integrate specialized testing, diet and lifestyle modifications, in combination with nutritional supplementation, and medications to creating wellness and treat chronic, complex medical problems.
Let’s face it; most of today’s diseases that we suffer with are and lifestyle related. Diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease are merely a cascade of symptoms indicating bodily imbalances.
Despite the fact that most lifestyle factors are modifiable – including diet, weight, inactivity and environmental exposures, our medical system is focused on treating disease using drugs and surgery rather than comprehensive patient-centered treatments focused on the individual. Functional Medicine is different; it is designed to have nutrition and lifestyle as the cornerstones of treatment.

Natural Treatments for Whole Body Wellness
Traditional medical care focuses on managing the symptoms of illness and injury by medicating pain. While prescription painkillers can provide temporary relief from pain, they cannot correct the underlying problems with the musculoskeletal system. Our holistic approach cares for the entire body, relieving pain and preventing future problems.
Thoughts, stress, faith, spiritualism, belief, hope, joy, contentment and life perspective affect our health and our ability to heal. It is by practicing and developing habits of faith, meditation, prayer, quiet time, and visualization that our health and life are balanced. Often the current medical model does not address this; it is not discussed or its’ role in chronic health problems is not considered. By acknowledging and addressing this aspect of our life we can impact health. How ready am I for change? How ready am I to develop new habits? How ready am I to seek help? Can I find peace with my condition and move forward? Do I have a faith that I practice? Do I have practices that allow me to relax? Have I ever used biofeedback to improve my health or condition? Am I ready to change for the health of it? These are critical questions in our healing and health.
There are many different triggers that promote inflammation in the body. Environmental triggers in our lifestyle can alter how our immune system functions. What turns our immune system up or down? We know many of the things we eat will promote immune system balance. Many of the different herbs that we use in cooking help balance our system. Different infections, allergies, stressors and habits all impact our immune system.
Getting the right balance of nutrients allows us to balance our immune system in such a way to promote the correct response to our environment. We focus on trying to bring a balance into our patients lives so inflammation or an overactive immune system can be quieted and improve symptoms. Many conditions can be exacerbated by inflammation, including asthma, arthritis, irritable bowel, colitis, atopic dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, myalgias, fibromyalgia and heart disease. By addressing the imbalance in the immune system we can help or cure disease.
We know that if we do not address the gut and many of its dynamic processes we often miss the cause of illness. The lining of your gut turns over every 14 to 21 days. The lining of your intestine makes up 70% of your immune system. We know that the mucosal barrier of your intestine is the thin film between everything we eat and the activation of our immune system. This is why we often address patients’ digestion and absorption.
Do we have enough digestive enzymes? Do we have too much or too little acid? Is the quality of our food such that it encourages healthful change in our situation? Do we eat enough fiber? Do we have the right types of carbohydrates? Are we taking in the rich orchestra of fruits and vegetables every day that offers the molecules to our metabolism that allow us to be healthy and not trigger illness? Are we washing our genes with molecules, vitamins and nutrients that encourage healthy processes to be turned on and not turned off?
We encourage everyone who comes to our clinic to examine their diet mindfully and inquire of themselves whether there are any issues in the diet and food choices they make that alter their health. We have added to the staff to help the doctors with this. Betty Murray, CN and functional medicine nutrition therapist helps our clients interrogate their diet habits and figure out which are healthy and which can be improved to promote health.
