Can you handle the changes in the seasons of your life? Women are the most overstressed people in the world. They have a job, and simultaneously are raising children. On top of they they are going to the gym. That’s enough to break anyone. Their adrenals are shot. Their amino acid pools, nutrients, and hormones are low from the work outs, and stress of ‘modern life’.
If you have PMS symptoms, or if you are in Menopause, or in Peri-Menopause, and have symptoms, Dr. Bieley can help. The safest way of doing this work is to test you, then treat you, and then retest you with the goal of balancing your hormones and making you symptom free. The Benefits: become stress resilient, improved energy, memory, mobility, mood, vision, hair, skin, sleep, and libido. This leads to a better quality of life. Menopause can be the best time of a woman’s life if she is hormonally sound (just don’t forget exercise and good nutrition).
It’s not a fun experience to be visited by those, ‘Seven dwarfs of menopause’ that Suzanne Somers wrote about: itchy, bitchy, sweaty, bloaty, sleepy, forgetful, and all dried up! Women need their hormones and they need them to be properly balanced. Menopause is equivalent to a partial lobotomy for women. Menopause is the loss of an entire hormone system.

Concerned with breast cancer? We offer Estrogen Metabolism Gene Testing and Methylation (MTHFR) Gene Testing to every woman prior to starting any hormone therapy. If you are at risk for breast cancer we can guide you with nutritional supplements and lifestyle changes to create a ‘metabolic workaround’ so that you avoid getting breast cancer (see Gene testing section). Approximately 85-90% of the breast cancers are environmentally influenced and can be prevented through nutrition, lifestyle changes, and detoxification. We offer environmental toxins testing as pesticides have been linked to breast cancer. We offer nutritional testing as low levels of CoQ-10 have been associated with a several hundred fold increase in the rate of breast cancer. Interestingly, a type of Vitamin E called tocotrienols, the annatto form of mixed delta/gamma tocotrienols is best, has been shown to raise CoQ-10 levels and decrease the risk for many cancers including breast cancer. (Source: lecture by Barry Tan, Ph.D, A4M conference, Las Vegas, 2012).

We have only one rule in anti-aging medicine: don’t die! However, everyone eventually dies. Regarding end of life care, ie, Hospice care, might seem an incongruous conversation for an anti-aging and functional medicine practice, but I want people to know that this part of your life counts and has meaning. I present Geoff Galbraith, MD, former director of Hospice in Hawaii, who expresses the work of hospice in an exceptional way. Dr. Geoff: Watch video.
