Hormone Health and Thyroid



Do you struggle with hormonal imbalance, mood swings, fatigue or brain fog?

We are passionate about women’s health and supporting women through each stage of their life. Using a personalised integrative and functional medicine approach we love to empower women to take back control of their body and mind and to flourish. Using nutrition, movement, herbal and homeopathic medicines, acupuncture, mindfulness, holistic therapies, bio-identical hormone therapy and natural dessciated thyroid we address the root cause of hormone imbalance while easing symptoms.

Symptoms such as PMT, mood swings, hot flushes, irregular periods, poor sleep, heavy or painful periods, migraines, fatigue, weight gain, brain fog, vaginal dryness, recurrent urine infections, low mood, libido and anxiety can all be related to thyroid and hormone imbalance.

 

Common conditions we see in our clinic are Menopause, Perimenopause, PCOS, Endometriosis, PMS, Irregular periods, Heavy and painful periods, Hormone related skin problems, Menstrual migraines, Hypo and hyperthyroidism and Male andropause

 

We are highly experienced in using functional medicine testing with over 10 years experience. We offer Gut Microbiome Testing, DUTCH, Comprehensive Thyroid Function testing and the gold standard Cyrex laboratory which specialises in functional immunology and autoimmunity clinical testing. We work with Invivo Healthcare offering world class laboratory diagnostics in gut, vaginal and oral microbiome testing, Genova Diagnostics for nutritional testing and LifeCode GX for nutrigenomics.

Using a personalised and tailored approach we address the root cause of your hormone imbalance as well as supporting you in managing and reducing symptoms - the root causes of hormone imbalance can often be linked to gut problems, stress, nutritional deficiencies, blood sugar imbalances, detoxification issues or epigenetic changes. We offer a unique integrative and functional approach to addressing these and work with you to create a plan supporting your body and mind as we know how debilitating hormone imbalances can be.

Working closely as a multidisciplinary team, our doctors, nutritional therapists and holistic practitioners can work with you together so you benefit from our wide range of expertise and knowledge, providing a true holistic health approach.
