Maintaining optimal body function and promoting healthy aging requires proper hormone balance. Hormones play an integral part in determining our overall health. From the infant stage to late adulthood our endocrine system is in charge of secreting hormones that play key roles in supporting proper growth and development, a healthy metabolism, cellular regeneration, promoting rest and sleep and creating a balanced internal system which allows the body to heal. Hormone balance becomes altered by the complexities of life, our fast pace of living, processed foods, stress, aging and an increase in environmental toxins. All of these stressors in both women and men can accelerate the aging process thereby creating illness and impacting quality of life.
Dr. Wilcox provides clinical assessments and hormone testing to assess hormone levels for both women and men that seek to understand their current hormone function. Hormonal imbalances commonly lead to weight gain, loss of muscle tone, fatigue, lack of motivation, depression, anxiety, immune system dysfunction, sleep changes, night sweats, bone loss, heart disease, low libido and memory problems. When assessing endocrine health all hormones are assessed, including adrenal glands, thyroid, and male/female sex hormones.
Maintaining proper body weight and a healthy body composition is integral in achieving complete health. Many of the ailments and health conditions most commonly seen are directly related to carrying excess weight. Some of the conditions affected and caused by excess weight include hypertension, diabetes, auto-immune disease, arthritis, fatigue, insomnia, hormonal imbalances and mood disorders. Weight loss is achieved through dietary changes, addressing food allergies and nutritional deficiencies, hormone balancing and tailored exercised plans. HCG is also available as a means of rapid weight loss. Body composition-analysis are offered to assess body fat and body lean mass ratios.
Nutrition is the foundation of all aspects of health. By understanding how food affects us in a beneficial and detrimental manner we are able to maintain optimal health and restore the body back to wellness. Dr. Wilcox offers testing to identify your food allergies, food intolerances and nutritional micronutrient deficiencies (mineral, vitamins, amino acids).
