True Healing Starts with Understanding

At Heal MD, we evaluate the root causes of disease. Our goal is to optimize your health and reverse chronic disease. We provide functional medicine consultations designed to improve your quality of life and wellbeing. We offer a holistic approach that addresses the biological, social, and spiritual health of our patients. We also pride ourselves on staying up-to-date with cutting edge diagnostic approaches.

Our functional medicine approach lets us focus on prevention and treating the whole person, not just a single ailment.

Through nontraditional evaluations and treatment protocols, we identify the root cause of your health concerns or conditions. Thereby, restoring your body to its natural balance. In addition to addressing the physical symptoms you have, we address your emotional and spiritual health. Best of all, we empower you to take ownership of your health and well-being, while providing the treatment you need to overcome health challenges.

Our Approach

We focus on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. Instead of  treating symptoms, we seek to find and alleviate the underlying cause. We call this true healing.

Consultations

Our Consultations involve a comprehensive health assessment, timeline of evolving symptoms, and innovative testing to uncover root causes of chronic health challenges.

The Components of BHRT

Bioidentical hormones commonly include estrogens, progesterone, and testosterone. These are administered in various forms such as pills, patches, creams, gels, or injections. The precise formulation and administration route are tailored to each patient's specific symptoms and hormone levels.

Symptoms Addressed by BHRT

Hormonal imbalances can disrupt your quality of life, manifesting in various physical and emotional symptoms. BHRT aims to alleviate these symptoms by restoring hormonal balance. Common symptoms treated by BHRT include:

  • Fatigue: A common complaint among those with hormone imbalance.
  • Mood Swings and Irritability: Hormonal fluctuations significantly impact emotional well-being.
  • Sleep Disturbances: Including insomnia or disturbed sleep patterns.
  • Decreased Libido: Often linked to imbalanced testosterone or estrogen levels.
  • Weight Gain: Particularly around the abdomen, often a result of slowed metabolism due to aging or hormonal changes.
  • Memory Lapses and Foggy Thinking: Cognitive functions are closely tied to hormonal health.
  • Hot Flashes and Night Sweats: Typically associated with menopause or perimenopause.

By addressing these symptoms, BHRT can significantly enhance life quality, leading to better overall health and well-being.
