Understanding Hormones

Hormones can be complex and it is difficult to find someone who understands how they all function and impact each other.  This is what we strive to do here and Bluestone Natural Medicine. We do this through functional testing.


For instance if you are having low thyroid issues and your doctor has run a TSH on you and said your thyroid is normal but you know there is something not right; there is a lot more to thyroid function then just what the brain thinks about what the thyroid is doing. We will run the tests necessary to understand how your thyroid is actually functioning in your body. This applies to your sex hormones and Stress hormones as well. In fact many times these hormones all impact each other and are never supported as a whole. Read more below.

You have access to a COMPLETE FUNCTIONAL LAB Analysis that will check 88 different BIOMARKERS including your Sex Hormones, Stress Hormones, Thyroid Hormones,  Nutrients,  functional cardiovascular tests,  and inflammatory markers.  You can learn more by clicking on the buttons below.

Sex Hormones

Sex Hormone imbalance is unfortunately to common. There are many way to support these hormones including nutrients, herbs, BHRT, and supporting other hormones.

BHRT (Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy) is filling the growing need of women needing to maintain optimal levels of sex hormones through out life.  There are several ways to administer these hormones; Creams, troches, drops, capsules, and pellets. Each patient is different in their needs and desires of applications, we will discuss with you all of these options and help you decide which is best for you.

Testing is key to any hormone therapy. It is important to have a baseline prior to therapy and then to retest after the therapy has been implemented at various intervals so that we can adjust the dose specific for you.

Stress Hormones

Stress Hormones are probably the least understood of all hormones, yet they play such an important role in support every system in the body, including but not limited to Thyroid function and Sex Hormone balancing. 

Cortisol and DHEA are your main stress hormones and they need to balance in order to have optimal health. This balance and a comprehensive understanding of how the Adrenal Glands are functioning can be tested using our ADRENAL ANALYSIS test. 

Thyroid Hormones

As illustrated above Thyroid function is not easily determined. While there are functional labs that are key in determining what is going on, the biggest factor is your symptoms. For some reason doctors have stepped away from working with symptoms when it comes to Thyroid and almost exclusively relay on labs. That is a BIG MISTAKE! Unfortunately then many women are put an anti depressants and continue to suffer.
