Natural Hormone Treatment

Natural Hormone Treatment

When the hormone system is in balance it runs like a “well-oiled machine”. Not exactly. But when your hormones are in balance, you are full of energy, have good moods, a healthy appetite and digestion, you are full of life!

Fatigue, sleep disturbances, depression, anxiety, weight gain, night sweats or hot flashes, loss of libido, hair thinning, dry skin are all signs of imbalance. In women, there may be many of these symptoms, including irregular or heavy menstrual cycles, menstrual cramping, fibroids, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, or migraines.

Hormone Health Doctor

Dr. Igor Schwartzman Portland Hashimoto's Specialist

Dr. Schwartzman has a strong interest in hormone health, Hashimoto’s and thyroid disorders. He has over 20 years of experience in the field of natural health, medicine, and research at both the Harvard School of Public Health and Boston University. He is an expert in lifestyle/preventative medicine and natural health. 

The entire endocrine / hormone system is always on and it creates a symphony. Hormones make a deep, meaningful music on a daily basis, each one playing over the other. Together, every 24 hours they cover a number of functions including your metabolism, temperature regulation, growth, cellular repair and regeneration, reproductive system control, sleep, mood, energy and appetite, to name a few.

Your brain and nervous system are the main conductors of this well-orchestrated “hormonic” orchestra, also known as the endocrine system.

The endocrine system is made up of eight individual glands, including the pineal body, hypothalamus, pituitary, thyroid, parathyroids, adrenals, the reproductive organs (ovaries and testes), and the pancreas. All of the glands produce and secrete hormones, which act as chemical messengers on all of the organs in the body. Hormone levels are directly affected by stress, immune system changes, fluid changes and nutrient-content in the blood.

Your hormones may fluctuate and contribute to your varying symptoms. Dr. Schwartzman’s unique approach to hormone balancing, re-regulation, and harmony does not always, or even often require hormone replacement. In order to access a greater sense of hormone harmony, he has found the mental, emotional, spiritual, (and, physical) must all be incorporated as the essential elements of health and healing.

[There are certainly instances when bioidentical hormones may be appropriate, or even necessary.]
