couple exerciseIf you’re not feeling 100%, the first step is finding an answer. At Structure Integrative Healthcare, we use the DUTCH test to identify any hormonal imbalances that may be contributing to poor health. This extremely accurate and precise test tells us exactly where you may be off and what you need to get back to maximum health.

We work with both men and women to find and correct hormonal issues. By restoring your body back to ideal balance, we empower you to feel clear, fresh, and healthy as you pursue the activities you love.

Better Answers for Women’s Health

Hormone imbalances are extremely common among women. These imbalances can cause all kinds of health problems affecting your physical comfort, relationships, stress level, and work. If you’ve been struggling with menopause, premenstrual symptoms (PMS), weight gain, low libido, or fatigue, you may have a hormonal issue.

Unfortunately, hormonal problems are often missed or, worse, misdiagnosed. Because these symptoms can result from a wide spectrum of health problems, it’s easy to assume a different condition is to blame. Applying the wrong technique or medication, however, is likely to make you feel even worse.

Dr. Cortney relies on objective results to determine your diagnosis, instead of taking a risk with guesswork. Our state-of-the-art DUTCH testing evaluates both sex and adrenal hormones, plus metabolites. Once we’ve found an answer, we’ll help you find a solution that brings you back into balance for optimal wellness and a vibrant, satisfying life.

Improving Men’s Vitality

It’s not just women who go through intense hormonal changes. Men also experience a form of menopause called “andropause” as testosterone levels decline and estrogen levels rise. In fact, some men begin to experience testosterone deficiency as early as their 20s. Most men have a 1-2% drop in testosterone every year after 30.

If your testosterone has dropped too low, you may experience decreased muscle mass, chronic fatigue, abdominal weight gain, brain fog, and trouble with executive function. Many men also notice poor sexual health, which puts them at risk of low self-confidence and mood disorders.

Lifestyle factors like exercise, diet, stress, toxins, and visceral fat can all accelerate the loss of testosterone. While some hormonal changes are just part of getting older, deficiencies are never normal. We can help correct imbalances and manage symptoms so you feel like yourself again, capable and confident.

Providing a More Accurate Diagnosis

When it comes to your diagnosis, the last thing you should feel is doubt. Standard testing options tend to offer limited results that may not reveal the full extent of the issue. We work with a CLIA certified lab called Precision Analytical to use superior DUTCH testing that pinpoints the exact cause of complex health problems.

This one, easy-to-administer test doesn’t require drawing blood, spitting in a tube, or filling up cups with urine. We simplify the process of collecting baseline measurements and monitoring Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT).

As a result, we’ll know precisely how you’re doing and whether we need to make any changes, so you’re not left swinging back and forth between extremes or constantly feeling slightly off. Our goal is for you to feel 100% again, without any unnecessary dysfunction.

What to Expect

At your initial consultation, Dr. Cortney will do a detailed health history and assessment. Her goal is to understand your experience of symptoms and how they’ve been affecting your life, as well as any previous care you’ve received.

We’ll let you know if we think hormonal testing may be appropriate for your case. Depending on your unique situation, we may recommend chiropractic adjustments as well as acupuncture, Kinesio Taping®, shockwave therapy, massage therapy, Active Release Therapy®, or instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization. Many patients receive maximum benefit from a holistic approach that combines several different techniques to help your body thrive in every way possible.
