Hormonal Profile MM2
The Wimbledon Clinic offers a unique hormone profile to evaluate the overall balance of the female functional body. The test measures the levels
Progesterone – the mother of all hormones, it is a natural anitidepressant, normal levels support libido and help to control premenstrual tension
Oestradiol – most bioactive of the oestrogens in the body, it protects against osteoporosis, reduces risk of heart disease, has beneficial effects on lowering cholesterol
DHEA – the anti-aging hormone, low levels may indicate adrenal stress, normal levels have an antidepressant action, may help to protect egg reserves
Testosterone – the female needs adequate testosterone levels for body and muscle tone. High levels may indicate PCOS and lower levels may low libido
Free T4 – low levels are associated with weight gain, hair loss, depression, fatigue, memory and concentration and impairment
Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) – indicates a woman’s egg reserves, high levels may be associated with PCOS. Low levels may be associated with infertility
Folicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) – low levels found in ammenorhea (no periods) or with the onset of menopause. Normal levels help control the menstrual cycle and the production of the eggs by the ovaries
Lutenising Hormone (LH) – stimulates the ovaries to produce and release eggs and the production of progesterone.
Hormone Health Screen
We are one of the few practices in the UK to offer such a comprehensive hormone screen. Uniquely, our analysis covers a total of 18 different hormones in the blood and includes thorough female hormone profiling. The results are measured and we undertake thorough investigation of readings both outside the acceptable scale and those within the scale that are relatively low or high.
The screening programme provides a thorough hormonal analysis including thyroid, growth hormone, testosterone, oestrone, luteinizing hormone, follicle-stimulating hormone and progesterone - it is particularly useful for identifying anaemia and thyroid problems.
Treatment programmes are
The pharmaceutical approach to hormonal rebalancing is through the effects of herbal compositions, mostly of Chinese herbs tending to be in either capsule or tablet form containing concentrated extracts of herbs. The clinic has available over fifty different compositions covering a wide variety of hormonal imbalances such as PMT, menopause, endometriosis, ovarian cystic syndrome, heavy periods, painful periods, infertility, habitual miscarriage, general blood deficiency, fatigue, low libido, and scanty irregular periods. These compositions, although treating hormonal imbalance, are holistic in their treatment effect because of the holistic approach in diagnosis.
Other related test procedures and subsequent treatments associated with hormonal imbalances may include, chiropractic assessment of back and pelvis, as through the German chiropractic technique of meridian balancing through chiropractic; allergy and food sensitivity evaluation; amino-acid, fatty acid and bio-mineral profiles. Subsequently, the practitioner will work out an appropriate and individual treatment programme.
