Hormones and the Endocine Problems
When your Thyroid hormones are out of balance - so are you.
Your Thyroid is responsible to produce the master metabolism hormones that controll every function in your body.
Are you having trouble with your weight? abnormal sweating or feeling cold all the time?
Low energy, fatigue, depression these are all question wich will be adressed.
If everything is working properly, you will make what you need and have the correct amounts of T3 and T4, which control the metabolism of every cell in your body. If your T3 is inadequate, either by scarce production or not converting properly from T4, your whole system suffers. T3 is critically important because it tells the nucleus of your cells to send messages to your DNA to rev up your metabolism by burning fat. This is how T3 lowers cholesterol levels, regrows hair, and helps keep you lean.
Your T3 levels can be disrupted by nutritional imbalances, toxins, allergens, infections, and stress, and this lead to a series of complications, including thyroid cancer, hypothyroidism, and hyperthyroidism, which today are three of the most prevalent thyroid-related diseases.
We have successful treated Graves and Hashimotos who had ongoing problems while still on medication or in other cases where it was not even detected yet.
Female and Male Sex Hormones.
Sex hormones are one of the major Hormones which suffer severe when you are under Stress .
Sex hormones play a role in Fertility in Female and Male.
Your monthly Menstruation , Pregnancy , Miscarriage is depending on your Hormone balance.

Yes we can arrange a complete Detoxification Profile and find out which part of your liver function is working and which not.
This test is unlike standard liver function tests which only provide a measure of hepatic damage (released hepatic enzyme levels). In contrast, the liver detoxification test is a true functional test as it evaluates the ability of an individual to process caffeine, aspirin (salicylate) and paracetamol (acetaminophen) by assessing certain metabolites in salivary and urinary specimens. Specific measurements of the different phases of liver detoxification including phase I and phase II (glycination, glucuronidation, sulphation and glutathionylation) are obtained, guiding the design of effective and specific therapeutic strategies which can optimise liver function.
