Hormone Health and Thyroid


 

Hormone Health and Thyroid

Do you struggle with hormonal imbalance?

Symptoms such as PMT, mood swings, hot flushes, irregular periods, poor sleep, heavy or painful periods, migraines, fatigue, weight gain, brain fog, vaginal dryness, recurrent urine infections, low mood, libido and anxiety can all be related to thyroid and hormone imbalance.

Common conditions we see in our clinic are Menopause, Perimenopause, PCOS, Endometriosis, PMS, Irregular periods, Heavy and painful periods, Hormone related skin problems, Menstrual migraines, Hypo and hyperthyroidism and Male andropause.

We are passionate about women’s health and supporting women through each stage of their life. Using a personalised integrative and functional medicine approach we love to empower women to take back control of their body and mind and to flourish. Nutrition, movement, herbal and homeopathic medicines, acupuncture and bio-identical hormone therapy are all used in our hormone health clinics.  

We are also highly experienced in using functional medicine testing, including DUTCH; comprehensive thyroid testing and the gold standard Cyrex laboratory, which specialises in functional immunology and autoimmunity clinical testing.

Dr Sally is the lead of our women’s health clinic and has 17 years experience in this area. She is trained in Bio-Identical Hormone therapy through the Marion Gluck Clinic, London the UK's leading hormone-balancing clinic that provides bioidentical HRT.

Kate Knapik, our pharmacist, naturopathic and functional nutritionist runs our thyroid clinic. She is part of the “The Thyroid Collective” a group of handpicked, registered naturopathic nutritional therapists created by “The Thyroid Expert” Jules Chandler and has her own thyroid story which inspired her to work in this area.

 We work with clients all over the UK and internationally and offer in person and remote consultations.

 We do have various packages available and prices range from £280 - £440, for more information on how we can help you, please enter your details below and we will send you a short questionnaire which will enable us to advise you:
