Our level of care and our experience is second to none in the area. Here is an overview of our practice, founded by Dr. Keith Wharton, Board Certified Gynecologist with over 30 years of experience that includes substantial work in hormone therapy.
Promoting hormonal balance:
As we age our hormonal systems fail us. The naturally produced hormones that help us grow and maintain our health decline. There is a decrease in the human growth hormone, all sex hormones (estrogen, testosterone and progesterone) as well as thyroid hormone. The hormones which have a negative influence on our health such as insulin and cortisol also begin to act in a dysfunctional manner. When these hormones are balanced it’s much easier to live a healthier life and avoid chronic illnesses.
The standard American diet is not a healthy diet. Thirty percent of Americans are overweight or obese. When there is a balance of the macronutrients and micronutrients it is much easier to attain a healthy weight and overall good health. Obesity can cause hormonal imbalance and many chronic illnesses.
Adequate and proper exercise is necessary to maintain good health. There should be a balance between aerobic exercise and resistance type of exercise. A routine of stretching should be added to help maintain adequate mobility and muscle tone.
