Dutch Hormone Test

As a premier Functional Medicine clinic, we are alaway interested to find out “the why” behind any of your health concerns. To do this we use some very specific tests to allow us to dig deeper and get some data points fron the biochemistry of your body so we can piece together your health issues.

One area we see issues with especially with female patients is hormones that aren’t working optimally. When hormones aren’t working optimally, we aren’t getting the signals that we should be getting leading to a whole host of issues from mental health issues to gut health imbalances, fatigue, PMS, headaches, weight fluctations, blood sugar imbalances and skin issues.
