How to Balance Your Hormones Naturally?  

  • The phrase “hormones” generally includes the thyroid, the adrenals, the female and male hormones, the hormones that promote sleep, and many others. The balance of hormones is delicate and critical.  Since hormones are interrelated, one imbalance can interfere with the balance of other hormones and the body as a whole. They are essential for several processes, including the management of insulin resistance, control of weight, stabilization of mood, immune system health, maintenance of healthy bones and muscles, nutrient absorption, and nutrient assimilation.  Dr. Naggar’s areas of focus in hormone health are the following:
  • Optimization of thyroid function
  • Management of adrenal insufficiency
  • Management of PMS, fibroids, endometriosis, and PCOS
  • Support for menopause and perimenopause
  • Promotion of sexual Wellness
  • Fertility Enhancement

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy 

  • The term “bioidentical hormones” refers to the hormones’ structure rather than their origins. Soy and yam are the sources of bioidentical hormones. Contrary to their non-bioidentical cousins, the structure is the same as the endogenously produced natural hormones by the body.
  • The action, metabolism, and elimination pathways of bioidentical hormones and naturally occurring human hormones are similar because of their similar molecular structures. Non-bioidentical hormones carry a higher chance of adverse effects on breast, coagulation, and cardiovascular health.
  • A Drop in sex hormones leads to insomnia, bones loss, migraines, hot flashes, increased risk of cardiovascular disease, obesity, elevated cholesterol, hypothyroidism, uterine fibroids, fibrocystic breasts, PCOS, chronic fatigue syndrome, hirsutism, connective tissue disorders.

Our Process

In her holistic approach to naturopathic medicine for hormonel health, Dr Rasha, a naturopathic doctor, uses various treatments to optimize hormone health and improve the overall quality of life.

Here is how the entire process works:

Step 1: Initial consultation and lab testing. 

The estimated duration of the initial consultation is 60-80 minutes. During the initial appointment, patients get to discuss their health goals with Dr Rasha. At the end of the initial consultation, we will order basic and functional lab tests and provide a treatment plan according to medical standards of care. The treatment plan includes diet and lifestyle modification, herbal medicine, homeopathy, supplements, and craniosacral sessions. 

Step 2: A follow-up visit for lab review and extended treatment.

The estimated duration of the follow-up visit is 30-40 minutes. The doctor explains lab results during the follow-up and provides a comprehensive treatment plan roadmap. 

Step 3: Consecutive follow-up visits.

We will manage the patient’s progress, modify the treatment plan, and address other conditions as and when needed. Our treatment plans also involve IV therapy for hormone health support and craniosacral therapy sessions.
