Hormonal
Imbalance & Fertility

We look at the entire endocrine system, hormonal imbalance,
detoxification and stress response
so your specific needs are addressed.

Endocrine hormones including reproductive and adrenal hormones wax and wane to keep your body balanced and protected. To balance these hormones, you need to recognize that multiple factors are likely causing the imbalance, and HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) may not be the first choice to balance these hormones. Your diet, blood sugar regulation, sleep, stress, medications, allergies, chronic infections, and inflammation may be disrupting your hormones. Below are each hormone’s physiological functions and possible symptoms when there are dysregulations of these hormones (click to expand). Please note that these symptoms may be coming from other factors. Lab testing will take out the guess, and highly recommended to see what the hormonal imbalance is. We have testing options available at our clinic.

    Avoid: Avoid stress and relax as much as possible for 25 hours following the treatment.

That will help reduce the allergies and sensitivities to water. Drink the water spaced throughout the day. BBF may be used as a combination with all other basic allergens if it indicated after each single group has been cleared. First treat the allergen then after 25-hour clearance period, when your practitioner rechecks, BBF, it is indicated, s/he will treat you again for BBF alone and for combinations with other basics. Sometimes, the need for BBF may not come up until all basic groups of allergens.

Hormonal Imbalance, Bamboo Field NAET & Acupuncture

As mentioned above, we have testing available at our clinic. We highly recommend getting urine and saliva testing to see how your adrenal hormones wax and wane throughout the day. It is difficult to get the diurnal transition of adrenal hormone through blood testing.  Also, by analyzing the secreted urine (metabolites), how your estrogen is detoxified, whether it’s taking the safe pathway, or more DNA damaging pathway, possibly more prone to causing cancer. There is much more information attained through the test, and it is amazing how much data you can get from “pee” and “spit”!

Women's Hormonal Health

Millions of women suffer from disorders arising from hormonal imbalances. Disorders range from fatigue, weight gain, low libido, PMS, hot flushes, mood swings, infertility, etc. If these symptoms are ignored, there will be more serious consequences. We will look at the entire endocrine system by giving you options to run blood, urine or saliva testing and identify the root cause and if it is correctable. DUTCH (Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones) testing is highly recommended.  With DUTCH testing, it's easy to collect samples within the comfort of your home in order to provide valuable insight into the root cause of many of your concerns.

HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) is commonly used under a medical doctor’s supervision. However, long term usage of HRT can cause problems. With DUTCH testing, you are not just monitoring hormone levels, but it also shows how your sex hormones are balanced or metabolized in your body. For example, there are safer and more harmful pathways when metabolizing estrogen. If your body tends to take a more DNA damaging pathway, you should get proper treatment to correct the pathway especially when you are on HRT.

Men's Hormonal Health

Hormonal imbalance may cause symptoms in men, such as decrease in muscle mass, abdominal weight gain, chronic fatigue, brain fog, and loss of executive function. Testosterone deficiencies can be harmful to men’s sexual health, self-confidence, and mood disorders. After age 30, men may lose testosterone 1-2% every year, and some men can start to see the effect of low testosterone as early as in their 20’s. As testosterone and DHEA levels come down and estrogen levels go up, men can have their own form of “menopause”, called “andropause”. We will give you the option to do urine and saliva testing to assess your hormone balance.

Female & Male Fertility

 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 in 5 couples are unable to get pregnant after a year of trying, and 1 in 4 women in the group have difficulty getting pregnant or carrying a pregnancy to term. There are multiple possible causes that contribute to these undesired outcomes, from hormonal imbalance, diet, to over-exercising, etc. It is important to identify if your hormonal health is healthy and optimized. It is also important to regulate your cycle, alleviate PMS, make sure you are ovulating, and address the underlying issues that may be affecting fertility including gut health, food, environmental and chemical sensitivities, inflammation, toxin exposure, etc. To support fertility, pregnancy term, baby’s health, and ideal delivery, we recommend 3-6 months of protocol incorporating NAET®, acupuncture and herbal treatments. Also, to assess where the hormonal imbalance is, we highly recommend getting a DUTCH (Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones) at the start of the protocol.

 

Expecting Couple, Bamboo Field NAET & Acupuncture

Many people want to get pregnant right away especially after trying for years. Although you may feel it is necessary to get pregnant right away, it is also important to consider what to do after you get pregnant. Having a strong carrying term, developing a healthy baby, delivering smoothly, and having an optimal postpartum is imperative to you and your baby’s health. 

It is not just women who have fertility challenges. Men’s health should be considered for quality sperm. We recommend at least 3 months of weekly acupuncture and/or NAET® treatments and nutritional supplementation as it takes 74-90 days for sperm to mature.
