Help your body function at its peak through metabolic optimization.
I will map and work to balance your cellular metabolic performance. Metabolic balance leads to the best performance outcome and recovery. Your performance and well being are enhanced by management of inflammation, hormones and neurochemistry.
Together we will evaluate your:

• Cortisol management and its catabolic downstream effect
• Sympathetic and parasympathetic tone
• Stress and sleep
• Immune functionality: We will identify overtraining and see the effect that training has on your physiology.
• Labs that matter: The basics of lab evaluation
• Mitochondrial protection and nourishing the metabolic powerhouse
• Core concepts in performance nutrition.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement
Hormones play an integral role in health and wellness.
They promote growth within the body and influence metabolism, organ function, energy, and weight management. Symptoms of hormone imbalance can vary and can include hot flashes, night sweats, fatigue, insomnia, mood swings, weight gain, muscle loss, anxiety and depression.
I will interpret your lab results to offer you and your body exactly what it needs to come into balance. This is achieved through a combination of therapies such as bioidentical hormone therapy, strategies for nutrition, stress management, and sleep. These modalities work synergistically to promote optimal health.

RG3 is derived from the Asian plant Panax Ginseng and was designed to support healthy brain function while protecting sensitive neurons from damage. With the rising prevalence of neurodegenerative conditions such as dementia, Alzheimers, Parkinsons etc, RG3 has been found to enhance memory and mental focus in some individuals. It does this by decreasing inflammation and oxidative stress within the brain. RG3 may also help with neurogenesis, the creation and development of neurons in the brain.
RG3 has shown to be a cutting edge treatment option if you are experiencing:
Energy Issues such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Benefits of RG3
Some of the potential health benefits of RG3 include:
Greater Learning Ability
Enhanced Immune Responses

Benefits of Sermorelin therapy include:
Increase energy levels, muscle mass, bone density, and sex drive
Improved memory and cognition, bone and mineral density, immunity, injury repair, nerve tissue regeneration, and fat burning ability
Enhance quality of sleep
