Let's Work Together
HAPPY HORMONES PRACTICE PHILOSOPHY
At Happy Hormones, our practice is based on the philosophy that if you give the body what it needs, it will heal itself. Food and therapeutic nutrients are used as the base of practice to restore balance to the body. The body has the amazing power to restore itself once harmful factors are removed, and critical nutrients are replenished. Functional testing is used as a critical guide to understand your biochemistry and what nutrients you need, because no one diet or supplement strategy fits everyone. You cannot change what you do not measure.
Happy Hormones is not a medical provider, and does not offer treatments, diagnosis, or cures of any specific disease or illness. Functional testing is also not diagnostic. Every client is encouraged to maintain a relationship with a licensed medical provider throughout out the course of working with Happy Hormones in order to make an informed decision about your heath.
We believe the root cause goes many layers deep, and true health is more of a marathon than a sprint. For example we cannot best balance female hormones, without first addressing gut health, nutrition status, blood sugar regulation, inflammation, and others. You can't build a house on sinking sand! It's imperative to start with the basics for lasting results, and incorporate functional testing to uncover underlying factors and generate targeted strategies.
ARE WE A FIT TO WORK TOGETHER?
Seeing changes in holistic health is much different than the allopathic approach, where taking a medication will yield faster results. Changes are slower and depend on your level of commitment to implementing recommended diet and lifestyle changes. Reaching your goals requires planning, discipline and a true commitment to change. You cannot fix a problem by continuing the same path.
Normally, a typical scenario in working together involves an initial consultation to review your health history, current diet and lifestyle, and past labs. We determine the missing holes, and what functional lab tests would be best to uncover your nutritional needs. Labs usually take 3-4 weeks for results to come in. The second meeting involves a review of your labs, and receive customized diet, supplement and lifestyle recommendations based on your unique biochemistry. Changes usually take a minimum of 4 months. Should you require counseling to implement your recommendations or help with habit changes, thought-process changes, social-emotional issues, or recipe creation, we have a list of referrals available to you. A follow-up meeting 4-5 months later will assess progress, and labs will be re-ordered to evaluate biochemical changes.
At Happy Hormones we want our work together to be successful, thus we only take new clients that meet the following criteria:
1. You are fully ready to adapt and embrace recommended diet and lifestyle changes
2. You are willing to incorporate supplement recommendations in order to facilitate biochemical changes in the body
3. You are willing to utilize functional testing as a means to determine the appropriate diet and supplements that your body needs
Because our practice is based on the philosophies of holistic nutrition, these three criteria are imperative for you to be successful in working with us. If you are not quite ready, that's ok too - we will be here when you are! In the meantime, please see our LEARN page for additional resources to starting your journey.
