adrenal balancing

Dr. Fleming is one of the few specialists in the country who are capable of correcting the underlying causes of common, but distressing, physical and emotional symptoms.
Instead of treating the symptom, Dr. Fleming treats the cause through careful examination of hormones in an individual's system, and then works with the patient through a process of balancing them.
Accumulation of stress and hormonal dysfunction cause many physical and emotional problems. When under stress, the body reacts by focusing on the preparation for "fight or flight." This focus shuts off other needs and sex hormones are converted to stress hormones. This misappropriation of hormones causes many problems, including:
  • Anxiety
  • Breast pain
  • Chronic stress
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Food cravings
  • Forgetfulness
  • Hot flashes
  • Insomnia
  • Irregular periods
  • Mood swings
  • Night sweats
  • Sexual dysfunction + loss of libido

First, a simple and non-invasive saliva test determines whether or not an imbalance exists. This saliva test tracks a full 24-hour circadian rhythm of the individual and allows Dr. Fleming to evaluate:

  • How well the adrenal glands are functioning.
  • The availability of hormones.
  • Levels of cortisol, DHEA-S, progesterone, estradiol, and testosterone in the system.
  • Levels of electrolytes, such as sodium, potassium, and chloride in the system. Levels that may also be tested are calcium, magnesium, and phosphorous.

If an imbalance is detected, a combination of natural hormones, electrolytes, amino acids, and nutritional co-factors are used to balance the hormones, normalize the system, and enhance metabolic activity. Dr. Fleming uses custom transdermal cremes as well as applications and dosages tailored to the individual.

Once a patient has started the process of re-balancing, it normally takes 120-180 days to restore adrenal balance. Once accomplished, Dr. Fleming works with the patient to maintain the restoration of healthy ratios of hormones, thereby helping the patient maintain a younger, healthier body.
