Women see Dr. Kandis, ND for all kinds of reasons. From prescriptions for hormones to validation of their life experience.
Over the her many years in practice Dr. Kandis, ND has seen a myriad of hormonal issues from irregular periods, to PMS and PMDD, to PCOS and Peri/Menopause.
There are many options for all of these depending on your goals and what you are looking to achieve. HRT works for some, herbs for others and lifestyle management and a deep dive into cycle awareness for others.
The other piece of the hormone puzzle that is key to address is the emotional aspect of cycle health. I have heard all kinds of stories of women feeling crazy due to hormonal imbalances. Symptoms of insomnia, mood swings, and depression are not uncommon AND although hormonal therapy takes care of some of this, it’s not the whole picture. Using coaching tools and a mind-body approach allows patients to reduce the burden of health and life stress that impacts what happens in their cycles.
It’s this whole body approach including our emotional space that allows for success.
As part of a comprehensive plan, Dr. Lock, ND, offers specialized saliva, blood or urine hormone testing which allows her to customize a treatment plan that is individually unique. She can also offer bio identical hormone therapy as part of a larger protocol.
