Bio Identical Hormone Therapy

Hormones are powerful chemical messengers with the body that regulate its day to day functions.  These include emotional and physical wellbeing.

Naturally, as we age our hormone levels decrease.  This results in unwanted symptoms that can lead to reduced quality of life and accelerate the ageing process. Along with proper nutrition and exercise, we can help patients return to their optimal levels of mental, physical, emotional and sexual health that they once enjoyed in their 20’s and 30’s.

Bio Identical hormones are chemically identical to human hormones and our treatment is tailored to mimic natural hormone production, replacing those hormones and restoring the body to its optimum function.

As part of your initial consultation we carry out a routine HbA1c test to check your blood glucose levels and then either of the blood tests below depending on your individual needs. The bloods get sent to our Lab for analysis and then you’ll have a follow up consultation with our Doctor who can then prescribe the necessary hormones and ourNutritionist who may prescribe supplements too.

Food Intolerance Testing

What is the difference between and Allergy and an Intolerance?

Food Intolerance is estimated to affect up to 45% of the population, 3 out of the 4 people who are tested reported feeling better within 3 weeks of dietary change? Intolerances can occur when the body has difficulty digesting certain foods.  When this occurs over time, large food particles (proteins) may enter the blood stream and this can cause inflammation.

When food and drinks are digest, the portions within then are broken down into smaller fragments for easy absorption into the body.  Larger fragments can pass through without breaking down and sometimes the body reacts by attacking them using antibodies called immunoglobulin G’s (IgG).

If you suffer from any of the these symptoms, food intolerance could be the cause:

  • Digestive discomfort
  • Bloating
  • Weight management difficulties
  • Joint pain
  • Skin conditions
  • Tiredness or fatigue
  • Migraines
  • Sinus problems

This is a finger prick blood test which can determine IgG reactivity levels for different kinds of food. High IgG relatively for a certain food indicates there is a possibility that certain foods may be involved with causing your symptoms.

When you have medically unexplained symptoms where doctors can’t find a physical reason in spite of  investigations the options you have are:

  • live with it and do nothing!
  • start the laborious process of choosing to remove some foods from your diet by second guessing!
  • seek support from a nutritional therapist who will provide you with an intolerance test and fast track your elimination diet.

A food specific IgG reaction should not be confused with food allergies, for example Coeliac disease, which is a life long condition, or enzyme deficiencies such as lactose intolerance. Chemical sensitivities eg histamine, tyramine, sulphites etc We recommend you seek assistance from your GP in the first instance.
