Longevity Medicine: Hormones, digestion, medical esthetics
What is the key to a long and healthy life? Internal and external beauty? Balanced hormones and healthy digestion. It is not normal (or healthy) to go through life feeling tired, bloated, unhappy and holding on to excess weight. Dr. Jennifer Luis ND develops individualized treatment plans using extensive testing along with a thorough medical history and physical exam. When it comes to digestion and diet, the goal is always to maintain well-balanced food options and remove restrictions. If cauliflower must be avoided because of annoying gas and bloating, that is a sign of imbalanced bacteria in the gut. Removing the source of the bloating such as small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) or yeast overgrowth and not the food is the best practice. Fatigue and weight gain very often come down to hormonal imbalances involving thyroid, cortisol, estrogen, progesterone, DHEA and testosterone. Correcting and restoring balance leads to optimal health and longevity. Private laboratory testing and traditional Lifelabs bloodwork provide the roadmap and guide individualized treatment plans.
All things thyroid
Dr. Luis knows thyroid health well. With over 10 years of clinical experience and living with Hashimoto’s for many years herself, she has helped thousands get back to optimal health. Hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and Grave’s disease are complex conditions and while the right hormone prescription helps if needed, there are many other aspects of inflammation to treat. Taking a different well-rounded approach and providing patients with options for thyroid medication has helped Dr. Luis become a leader in thyroid health.
