What Makes Integrative Medicine Different?

If you feel increasingly dissatisfied with the traditional model of healthcare, you’re not alone. More Americans than ever are frustrated by doctors who don’t have the time to listen to their needs, and prescription medications that seem to cause more problems than they solve. For many people, integrative medicine is a more natural and personal alternative to healthcare. Doctors who practice integrative medicine focus on the whole person, which encompasses the mind, body, spirit, and community at large. This is a radically different approach than traditional medicine that only treats injuries and diseases one symptom at a time.

By the time people reach mid-life, their bodies are undergoing radical hormonal changes. For women, progesterone is the first hormone to start declining followed by estrogen. While these two hormones are out of balance, women can experience a wide range of symptoms that make their lives less enjoyable. These may include insomnia, migraine headaches, mood swings, weight gain, and decreased interest in sex. Men, who start losing testosterone around age 30, experience many of the same symptoms. Unfortunately, doctors who practice traditional medicine aren’t likely to offer you anything that brings lasting relief.

Since anti-aging doctors view health holistically, they tend to work outside the one-size-fits-all approach. Recognizing that each individual has unique needs and body chemistry, Dr. Childers creates personalized Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy programs that can address your unique imbalances. This type of personalized hormone therapy corrects the levels of numerous important hormones in your body.

Some of the hormones balanced with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy include:
  • Estrogen
  • Progesterone
  • Testosterone
  • Cortisol
  • Melatonin
  • DHEA
  • Pregnenolone
  • Thyroid Hormone

Imbalances within these hormones can be the root cause for many different health disorders. Estrogen, progesterone and testosterone are primary sex hormones that work to control sexual function, reproduction, vitality and youthfulness. Cortisol, DHEA and pregnenolone are adrenal hormones that work to reduce inflammation, balance immunity, protect the nervous system and produce other hormones. The pineal gland and pituitary hormones include melatonin and thyroid hormone; they work to control sleep cycles and most aspects of energy and metabolic functioning. Typically, hormones decline or become imbalanced due to high stress, lack of sleep or aging.

Some of the conditions that can be treated by balancing hormones include:
  • Adrenal Fatigue
  • Andropause
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Menopause
  • Perimenopause
  • Sexual Dysfunction
  • Weight Loss Resistance

Dr. Childers uses Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to balance hormone levels and improve conditions related to hormonal decline or imbalance. Men and women frequently feel and look more youthful with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Dr. Childers combines Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy with other treatment protocols to provide a comprehensive wellness plan.
