It’s your body, it’s your choice…..
Hormones are chemical messengers that circulate through the blood stream and control every function of the human body.
Dr Whitelaw is passionate about providing both men and women with the knowledge and understanding as to why hormone imbalance might be making them feel the way they do.
When hormones are not in balance many of us will experience debilitating symptoms that negatively impact on our daily lives. One thing we can be certain of, is that if hormone imbalance is affecting the quality of our life then most likely it will be having a detrimental impact on our partner, family and work colleagues.
Low Self Esteem
Loss of Muscle Tone
These hormone imbalances may be due to:
Andropause (Male Menopause)
Anxiety and Depression
Post Natal Depression
Pre-menstrual Syndrome (PMS)
Pre-Menstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD)
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
But remember, everyone is individual which means that your experience may be very different to another.
Dr Whitelaw works hand in hand with patients to empower them to make an informed choice on the right treatment option for them. A ‘one-size fits all’ approach to health and well-being is not effective.
These treatment options encompass a ‘whole body’ approach, ranging from:
• Medication and supplements
• Sleep management
• Gut health
• Stress Management
• Lifestyle Changes
• Mental Health Support
Medicated hormone replacement therapy does not only relieve the debilitating symptoms commonly associated with hormone imbalance but can also helps improve quality of life, vitality and well-being while at the same time contribute to slowing the ageing process.
Low oestrogen levels and other biological changes that occur in menopausal women, for example, are also associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes and dementia.
