It’s the time we start using the 21st century’s diagnostic testing to prevent chronic diseases, and not the 20th century’s approach of waiting to diagnose before intervening.

Listen carefully when your body just starts whispering:  fatigue, insomnia, low sex drive, difficulty losing weight, digestive issues, rapidly aging skin, acne, melasma, menstrual issues, ‘brain fog’, bloating, cravings, loss of endurance, lack of motivation, mood swings, irritability, feeling overwhelmed, hair loss, eczema flares, rosecea, etc. The earlier you pay attention to your body whispering, the easier it is to tweak its biochemistry back to normal. Kill the monster while it is small, don’t wait for it to become a metabolic Godzilla!

Both virtual and in-person appointments are available to provide a convenient access for busy women. All advanced laboratory tests are done at the comfort of your home! You don’t have to put your health on a back burner any longer! Select ‘Book an Appointment’ to schedule a free Discovery Video Call!

Hormone Replacement And Optimization For Women-edynamichormoneswomen

About

Hello, I Am Nadia, a board-certified family nurse practitioner with full practice authority in IL, OR, and WA.

I help busy women to regain their peak vitality using the cutting-edge functional labs so they can tackle their hectic lives as effortlessly as humanly possible.

After many years of stress and sleep deprivation accumulated while pursuing my healthcare career in a new country, I found myself wondering what it was all for. Meanwhile, life obligations kept piling up- becoming a mother, finishing graduate school while working night shift in a critical care unit, managing the household, worrying about aging parents, becoming a mother again- well, you get my point! My own health was on autopilot. I began to experience more frequent digestive issues and weakening of my immune system. Even after I quit working night shift, I did not feel like I fully recuperated; however, all my routine blood work (the famous 4 tests) showed up as ‘normal’. 

While working at the ob-gyn clinic as a nurse practitioner, I started to notice how many women were struggling with the same issues-multitasking on all fronts of their lives, rolling with the punches between their demanding careers and family obligations with a never-ending task list. Many shared they felt irritable, moody, tired, unable to sleep, depressed, exhausted, wired on caffeine, or even overwhelmed – just like I was multiple times in my life. I have heard from my patients ‘You probably think I am crazy’ more times than I can count. Not to mention, that so many women felt stuck with ongoing digestive issues and persistent weight gain, especially after the age of 35 heading into perimenopause and menopause.  

After my second baby, I was the one crawling to my coffee maker every morning before my kids were up, and the one trying to shed a couple of extra ‘baby’ pounds with intermittent fasting. Needless to say, the unstable blood sugar didn’t help my already postpartum mood. After I finally completed my own hormone testing (DUTCH) and found out that my adrenal glands were, indeed, struggling after being ‘under the attack’ for so many years. I decided to shift gears and change my professional focus to health optimization using the advanced functional testing that is available to all of us in the 21st century! I believe it’s about time we start using the 21st century’s diagnostic testing to prevent chronic diseases and not the 20th century’s approach of waiting to diagnose before intervening. Another factor that contributed to my decision was witnessing the professional burnout of my parents, who are both physicians, a neonatologist and a pediatric surgeon. 

‘A human body is much more than the sum of blood, bone and viscera. In the same way, each fragment of truth in itself is a lie; therefore, the accumulation of unintegrated scientific facts doesn’t protect us against ignorance. In the measure that we interrelate a greater number of fragments, the closer we can come to truth, although truth as an absolute is unattainable.’ Fuad Lechin, Bertha van der Dijs

Our Services

Hormone Optimization/Gut Health

Our hormones become depleted not only with natural aging and menopause but also due to poor diet, environmental toxins, stressful life events, and demanding careers.  Chronic stress leads to poor sleep quality, low libido, cravings, blood sugar dysregulation, alcohol consumption, insulin resistance, weight gain, poor detoxification processes, digestive issues, poor memory, difficulty concentrating, etc. Optimal hormone balance nurtures the natural biochemical processes and ensures healthy aging, longevity, and increased health span. Testing one’s hormones gives us a better idea of how to precisely support one’s metabolism and to create a personalized plan.  

Metabolic Health

Mitochondria are the powerhouse in our cells that create energy from the foods we eat. They get damaged by toxins, pesticides, over-nutrition, and other oxidative stress, and become less efficient at burning fat and glucose. OAT (organic acid urine test) or OMX (metabolomics test) allow us to pinpoint the deficiencies in the mitochondrial functions. Although semaglutide and other GLP-1 agonists have recently become popular, we must dig deeper to optimize your hormones and overall metabolism as it is essential for sustainable weight loss and wellness. GLP-1 receptor agonists are peptides, which means their chemical structure mimics body’s natural hormone produced in the gut in response to food without disrupting body’s natural biochemical processes. GLP1 agonists suppress appetite and boost insulin production without causing a drop in blood sugar, and are self-administered subcutaneously once a week. However, lifestyle and dietary modifications are a must to avoid titrating to higher doses and prolonged use, hence, minimizing the risk of adverse effects, such digestive issues and muscle loss.

GloSkin Within

On-point metabolic, gut, and hormone health will plump your skin layers from the within, and help you achieve a truly radiant skin. Consider digging deeper to find the root causes of rapidly aging skin, hyperpigmentation, melasma, acne, eczema, and rocesea with the cutting-edge functional testing, such as GI Map (gut microbiome), OMX (advanced metabolism/mitochondria), and hormone testing! The integration of aesthetics and functional medicine is the path to the long-lasting and sustainable results!

Meanwhile, the outside beauty can’t be ignored!

1. Botox® is a neuromodulator treatment that work to improve the signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, by relaxing the facial muscles. Wrinkles form over time as a result of the repeated facial expressions and muscle movement over the years.

2. The SkinPen microneedling is a regenerative treatment that boosts the natural production of collagen and elastin, and improves the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. SkinPen microneedling procedure is performed in a minimally-invasive (little to no introduction of the instrument into the body) and precise manner with the use of the sterile needle head. The procedure is normally completed within 30–60 minutes, depending on the required procedure and anatomical site. SkinPen® Precision, the first-to-market and U.S Food and Drug Administration-cleared microneedling device clinically-proven solution to safely and effectively improve the appearance of facial acne scars for people age 22 and above.

3. VI PEELs are a unique blend of different acids created to target multiple skin conditions, and are suitable for variety of skin types.  VI Peels are medical grade peels, which penetrate to a medium depth and stimulate regenerative changes in as little as 7 days. The Vitality Institute’s research claims that 97% of the participants reported reduction in acne, 90% noticed reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, 97% experienced reduction in pigment, and 94% noted more radiant skin. The peeling phase is between 3-10  days, and requires avoidance of sun exposure. There are special VI PEEL formulas for clients with rocesea, melasma, active acne, acne scarring, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

4. ToxBooster – VI PEEL and Botox treatment on the same day for boosting neuromodulator results!

We utilize only reputable, state-of-the-art laboratory services to ensure that the treatment is tailored to your specific health needs.

Depending on your chosen package, you will complete DUTCH Plus, GI MAP stool test, OAT (organic acid test), or OMX (organic acids and amino acids test) in addition to our comprehensive blood panel for a detailed analysis of your hormone metabolism, gut microbiome, and mitochondrial function.
