Hormone Balancing Balanced hormones are essential for leading a healthy, full life. While aging is the primary reason for hormonal imbalances, men and women of all ages may experience hormone decline.
Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy BHRT can correct hormonal deficiencies or excesses and restore the delicate balance of the hormonal network. BHRT can treat menopause, peri-menopause, andropause, adrenal fatigue, PMS, Chronic fatigue, thyroid disorders, and metabolic disorders.
Allergy Elimination NAET is an acronym for Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique. NAET is an innovative, non-invasive treatment. It is a synthesis of various medical disciplines including allopathy, acupressure, kinesiology, and nutrition. NAET utilizes Muscle Response Testing, which indicates the kinetic imbalance in the body caused by allergens. Because it is painless and non-invasive, this method can be used on children of all ages, as well as adults.
Natural Thyroid Replacement When the thyroid gland produces excessive or deficient amounts of thyroid hormone, the body may begin to suffer from hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. BHRT can supplement deficiencies or help to correct excesses in order to help patients regain proper balance.
Weight Loss Weight gain can occur from hormone imbalances or poor lifestyle choices. BHRT can help correct metabolic issues that cause weight gain, and Dr. Pescatore can recommend healthy dietary and exercise changes to help decrease weight.
Nutritional Counseling and Supplementation Dr. Pescatore can serve as a guide in helping patients to obtain proper nutrition. Supplementation is available to help correct any nutritional deficiencies that may be present.
IV Therapies These are treatments that are given in the office whereby patients take high doses of vitamins and minerals directly into the veins. By doing this, the body is able to tolerate doses that could not be taken by mouth, and the vitamins get absorbed more readily.
Detox Protocols Detoxification is an important part of maintaining health and vitality, and it can increase energy and immune function.
Cancer Support Therapies Patients that are going through chemotherapy, have been recently diagnosed with cancer, or that have gone through chemotherapy can be helped with IV nutrient therapies, special diets, and detoxification protocols.
Conditions Treated at Medicine 369 include:
Aging optimally and gracefully can be helped with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, nutritional supplementation, and dietary and exercise programs.
Andropause or male hormone decline can be helped with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy and testosterone supplementation.
Adrenal Fatigue This is caused by exhaust of the adrenal glands, and it can be helped with BHRT, nutritional supplements, and dietary therapies.
Allergies or Asthma These conditions can be helped with protocols that help to reduce inflammation and regulate the immune system.
Autoimmune Disorders Problems such as Thyroiditis, Lupus, or Sjogruns can be helped with therapies that prevent the immune system from attacking healthy tissues.
Breast Disease Breast issues may be prevented or treated with estrogen and progesterone balance. BHRT may also allow patients to discontinue the use of toxic pharmaceuticals.
Blood Sugar Imbalances These disorders can be helped with nutritional supplements, dietary changes, and exercise programs.
Chronic Fatigue Chronic Fatigue Syndrome can be helped with BHRT through the use of nutritional therapies and the search for the underlying cause. Dr. Pescatore is very often able to rid people of their fatigue, and he is not afraid to search for new answers to old problems.
Chronic Candidiasis (Yeast) This is a very common fungus found in the body, and it often leads to digestive difficulties of many different varieties. Also, this is usually the underlying issue in many children with PDD, ADHD, or other learning disorders.
Crohn’s Disease This is a type of inflammatory bowel disease that Dr. Pescatore has helped many patients with.
Cardiovascular Disease Heart disease can be prevented with a healthy diet and exercise program.
Diabetes Diets with high amounts of processed carbohydrates and sugar can lead to type II diabetes.
Endocrine Disorders The endocrine system regulates hormones, and hormone imbalances can disrupt the functioning of the endocrine system.
Fibromyalgia This is another diagnosis that many doctors are unwilling to treat and often write the patient off as a quack. This is not so at medicine 369. There is a reason patients do not feel well, and Dr. Pescatore will find out why.
Food Allergies and Sensitivities Over 70% of Americans feel they have a food allergy, and only 1% actually have one. The differences in the figures are the food sensitivities or intolerances. The symptoms are varied and by identifying and eliminating foods that are creating inflammation in the body, many of the very common symptoms that patients thought they would have to live with for the rest of their lives simply go away.
Gut Dysbiosis This occurs when healthy bacteria in the gut is overrun by bad bacteria, yeast, parasites, or viruses. Restoring the healthy bacteria in the gut may help to regulate digestion, immune function, and other digestive disorders.
Heavy Metal Toxicity Metals such as mercury, cadmium and lead can build up in the body and become toxic. Chelation therapy, which allows a substance to bind to the metals in blood and excrete them as waste, can help a person to detoxify from heavy metals.
High Cholesterol Increased cholesterol can occur from eating a diet high in cholesterol, or when hormone imbalances prevent the blood from removing the bad cholesterol.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Leaky Gut, Colitis, and GERD Dr. Pescatore works to find the underlying causes of most digestive, allergy, asthma, and other inflammatory conditions. By identifying the source of the inflammation and eliminating it, he can successfully outline a program that helps heal most inflammatory conditions.
Low Testosterone This may occur during Andropause and can cause symptoms of hair loss, abdominal fat gain, muscle atrophy, insomnia, and mood swings.
Lyme Disease Lyme Disease is a very overlooked and under-diagnosed problem. Dr. Pescatore is able to utilize tests that most conventional medical doctors have never heard of, and he believes in treating the patient until every last sign of the disease is gone. Two weeks of antibiotics may be enough, but more than likely, it is not. Dr. Pescatore is able to give his patients advice on what needs to be done while on antibiotics in order to stay healthy.
Migraines Migraines can be defined as piercing pain going through the skull that may come with other symptoms such as light sensitivity, nausea, and vomit. Imbalanced hormones or toxicity can contribute to migraines, and migraines may be improved by regaining balance.
Osteoporosis Brittle, porous bones can be caused by the body’s failure to properly absorb calcium and other nutrients into the bones.
Polycystic Ovarian Disease PCOS occurs as a result of excessive androgens in the female body. Women with elevated male hormone levels may get small, fluid filled sacs around their ovaries, which can interfere with menstruation and fertility.
PMS This can be caused by imbalances in estrogen and progesterone, and it may cause symptoms of increased fatigue, bloating, acne, mood swings, and cramping.
Peri-menopause and Menopause Peri-menopause and Menopause are the stages in a woman’s life when her hormone production begins to decline. Peri-menopause usually begins in a woman’s early forties and lasts from 4-6 years. When she has not had a menstrual period for 12 consecutive months, menopause has begun.
Prostate Disorders Prostate problems may be affected by testosterone decline, and they can lead to urinary issues or growths in the prostate gland.
Sleep Disorders Sleeping problems can be caused by hormonal imbalances. Hormones regulate the hypothalamus, which sets the body’s sleeping cycles, and if they are imbalanced, the hypothalamus cannot function properly.
