Complete Integrative Hormone Health™ by Joseph J Collins, RN, ND
Complete Integrative Hormone Health™ is achieved with the Hormone Specific™ Formulations and the hormone health guidelines that have been discussed in this series of articles.
Optimal hormone health requires more than “normal hormone levels”. It requires a healthy response to hormones. We know that just as it is possible to develop insulin resistance, it is possible to develop resistance to any hormone. Specific lifestyle and diet changes are required for optimal hormone health. Phytotherapeutics with proper and specific herbal therapies can also restore optimal hormone health. This requires personalized hormone healthcare that is supported by customized dosage guidelines which allows for the herbal therapies to be personalized for the specific needs of each patient.
This personalization of therapies is possible because the Hormone Specific™ Formulations were developed to have significant formulation synergy, which allows the formulations to be used together in such a way that they can be “mixed and matched” and customized for each patient. The Hormone Specific™ Formulations have been designed to have formulation compatibility so that many combinations are possible. The Hormone Specific™ Formulations are also compatible with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), and are discussed throughout the Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy module.
By integrating lifestyle, diet, phytotherapeutics, and if need be, BHRT, we can see a very clear order of applying integrative healthcare to the hormone health program. This simple sequence is:
- Foundations of Hormone Health
- Lifestyle & Diet
- Complete Multi-Nutrient
- Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids
As simple as the three steps are, this provides a system for Complete Integrative Hormone Health™.
As noted, Complete Integrative Hormone Health™ is achieved with the Hormone Specific™ Formulations, and the hormone health guidelines that have been discussed in this series of articles.
