Your body is capable of hormone balance. What exactly does that mean? Every person is different, so it means something different for everyone. But the unifying truth is that your body knows what to do. It has a deep, inherent healing intelligence when it comes to our hormonal system. It is not our destiny as women (and men) to suffer through our reproductive years and beyond.
Hormones are messengers. They tell your body what to do and when to do it. Estrogen and progesterone are engaged into an elegant interplay to keep our periods regular. Cortisol and adrenaline keep us alert and energized. Thyroid hormones maintain metabolism. And these are are just to name a few of the fifty human hormones that keep us in a state of wellbeing.
When a single hormone is imbalanced, it can set off a cascade effect of widespread health problems; everything is connected. Hormonal imbalance is rampant these days as a result of synthetic hormone use, wrong diet, lack of sleep, toxin exposure, and stress.
Dr. Maura works closely with women, and men, to uncover the cause of their hormonal imbalance. Often, she sees patients who are disenchanted with conventional medical approaches of band-aiding their problem with oral contraceptives or simply being told that there is no solution. As a naturopath, Dr. Maura believes that there’s always a solution, as long as we can find out the cause of imbalance. Using her vast clinical knowledge along with targeted functional medicine testing, she uncovers why you’re having the issue. From there, using natural therapies and nutrition, she encourages the body to return to its natural state of balance.
