One of the biggest issues blocking optimal health and longevity is when your hormones are not working as they should. Your hormones regulate many functions in the body including your sexual wellness, thyroid, mood, and stress.
As we age or undergo stress and chronic disease, often our hormonal levels drop, or become unstable and vary unpredictably. Low testosterone levels can lead to irritability, fatigue, sub-optimal workouts, compromised focus, loss of sex drive and loss of bone and muscle mass for both men and women. Higher than normal estrogen levels in men can cause male “breasts” and fat storage around the waist. Low estrogen and progesterone levels for women can lead to mood swings, brain fog, headaches, sleep disorders, changes in body composition, hot flashes, night sweats and lack of energy. Higher than normal testosterone levels in women can lead to extra hair growth on the face and body, acne, and irregular periods and infertility.
Problems with your thyroid can contribute to fatigue, hair loss, brittle nails, dry skin and slowed metabolism which can lead to weight gain. High cortisol levels contribute to chronic stress effects in the body such as high blood sugar, anxiety, sleep disturbances and more. Low Serotonin contributes to depression, lack of well-being, low energy and appetite increase that can foster unwanted weight gain.

“After working with Michelle for 1.5 years, I am no longer pre-Diabetic. I have lost weight, I sleep better at night, and have more energy during the day…My goals are met, but I want to push them even further with my nutritionist, Michelle Miller, who has really changed my life.”
I signed up for the 3 month FRESH Integrative Medicine Program to see Dr. Robert Graham, Michelle Miller, and Julie Graham. It’s been a great program so far. It gives me some accountability, I’ve tried different health programs in the past, but I never stay motivated enough to see it all the way through. It has helped me jump-start my life to develop better habits.
