Hormonal Health For Women

It is estimated that as many as 90% of women of reproductive age experience a menstrual and/or hormonal disorder that affects them on a regular basis.  This includes conditions such as painful periods (dysmenorrhea), heavy periods (menorrhagia), endometriosis, uterine fibroids and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Many women seek out natural solutions for the management of these conditions, and many find complementary approaches extremely effective. Restoring balance, health and vitality to all of our body systems, including our hormonal and reproductive system, can be achieved through appropriate dietary and lifestyle changes, as well as through the use of specialised natural supplements.

Natural solutions for:

  • PMS
  • Menstrual irregularities
  • Painful periods
  • Endometriosis
  • PCOS (Polycystic ovarian syndrome)
  • Fibroids

The menopausal phase of life is a time of huge change for many women. 

The physical and emotional changes can be overwhelming, debilitating and extremely frustrating.  Many women experience a rollercoaster ride of symptoms during menopause, including bewildering mood swings, hot flushes, fatigue, cognitive impairment, insomnia and depression. These are all common symptoms that can occur in varying degrees during menopause and greatly impact on the quality of life for many women. 

A personal treatment protocol can be created just for you.

Hormonal Health For Men

Natural solutions for: 

  • Decreased libido
  • Impotence
  • Depression 
  • Stress and adrenal health


Also, known as androgen deficiency of the ageing male (ADAM) or male menopause that relates to a decrease in testosterone and DHEA in middle aged men. The consequences of lowered hormone levels are associated with:

  • Loss of libido
  • Impotence
  • Nervousness
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Decreased muscle mass and strength
  • Impaired memory and difficult concentration
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Hot flushes
  • Sweating

These changes can start at around 35 years of age which is called premature andropause and can occur in men who experience excessive female hormone stimulation through workplace exposure to estrogens. Men who work in the pharmaceutical industry, plastics factories, near incinerators and on farms that use pesticides are at high risk for early andropause.

Other risk factors are:

  • Age
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Adrenal insufficiency
  • Stress
  • Toxicity (pesticides, smoking, alcohol, heavy metals)
  • Insulin resistance
