At Yen Health & Wellness we will understand your health concerns, needs and goals during our Personalized Initial Wellness visit. We will review your past medical history, your diet and lifestyle. We will discuss any labs taken within the last year, order additional labs, review medication history including supplements and over the counter therapies. With this data we will begin to build your Personalized Wellness Plan.
Lab Testing at Yen
Our lab testing may include hormone testing, food sensitivity testing, neurotransmitters testing, digestive and stool analysis, inflammation testing, and genetic testing. We provide therapies to reduce and eliminate conditions and symptoms such as menopause, thyroid disorders, chronic fatigue, hormonal imbalance and infertility. Your Personalized Wellness Plan will also include solutions to preventing diseases and disorders such as diabetes, osteoporosis, and heart disorders.
Our Integrative Approach to Hormones
Your plan may include hormone optimization. At Yen Health & Wellness, we address hormone optimization with an integrative approach that includes addressing the origin of the condition. Bio-identical hormone therapy for women and men may be a part of your treatment and refers to hormones that are structurally and chemically identical to our endogenous (biological) hormones.
Hormone optimization / hormone therapy can help with many symptoms of hormonal imbalance including decrease libido, sagging cheeks and facial wrinkles, dry thin skin, sleep disturbances, infertility, weight gain, anxiety, irritability, depression, facial hair, acne, and thinning hair. Optimizing hormones can help address many diseases associated with aging. Research data shows correlations between hormone optimization and improvement in cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, macular degeneration, cataracts, and immune function.
We work with you to identify and address the origin of your hormonal imbalances. Your assessment may include laboratory testing, nutritional analysis, stress and sleep evaluation, and/or genetic testing. We may prescribe hormones in a form that provides optimal delivery to you. We use both traditional FDA approved and compounded bioidentical hormones. We do not prescribe oral Estrogen or Testosterone due to the increased risk of blood clots, including stroke, pulmonary embolism and heart attack. We also do not prescribe synthetic progestins for menopausal management due to overwhelming data in the medical literature showing health risks with progestins.
Our Personalized Wellness Plan
Your Personalized Wellness Plan includes a 60 minute follow-up visit. At this visit, we will review lab results, your goals and feelings. Therapies may include diet, nutrition and lifestyle modifications, nutraceuticals, and bio-identical hormone therapies.
Personalized Wellness Plans includes visits planned 4 to 12 weeks post implementing your plan to assess your treatment and the progress of your health, order and review follow-up labs, and continue or adjust your plan.
Bio-identical hormones have the exact molecular structure as those made in the human body and produce the same physiological responses.
