Our functional medicine practitioner, Jasmin, has extensive experience in women’s health and has helped thousands of women with hormonal imbalances, as this area has been her major focus over her career. She also has a strong passion for following the latest research in this area, being a women herself and understanding the massive impact that hormones can have on both your physical and mental well-being.
Jasmin believes that although there are patterns, no woman’s experience and symptoms are the same. She loves being both detective and practitioner to discover the underlying causes and fine-tune the treatment plan, until she has found the most suitable approach for the individual.
Jasmin practices holistically, so although she will focus on specific health areas to provide quick symptom relief, she is always aware that you can never treat an organ or condition without consideration for the entire mind and body. This is especially true for hormonal imbalances, as hormones in most cases have more than one target tissue and can therefore have a multitude of different actions throughout the body. Also, most hormonal testing does not detect subtle imbalances between your hormones. It is generally used to assess if you are actually ovulating or going into menopause; not if you are excesses or deficiencies in your hormones. They also do not assess your hormone metabolism & detoxification. This is important for supporting hormone-dependent conditions such as fibroids, endometriosis, PMS, acne and even your risk of some familial chronic diseases.
