Since symptoms of a hormonal imbalance can easily mimic other conditions, it’s a good idea to get the appropriate tests so you can follow a treatment plan that will support your long-term health and well-being.
Dr. Doyle can run the appropriate tests to determine how your hormones are behaving and what steps need to be taken next. When it comes to treating hormonal balance, he often uses bioidentical hormones. These naturally occurring hormones help your body supplement the lacking hormones and restore your body to its natural, healthy state.
Dr. Doyle may also recommend specific dietary adjustments or lifestyle changes to help minimize your stress levels, improve your nutrient absorption, and heal your body.
