About Emèlle

Hormone balance is fundamental to wellness on all levels.  It's a key factor in the aging process, immune function, energy levels, weight management, mood and sleep.  Hormones begin to decline in the thirties for both men and women, but can be affected at any age by such factors as poor diet, exposure to toxins and fluctuations in stress levels.  

Our treatment with Bioidentical Hormone Therapy uses hormones structurally identical to the human body’s to treat the following conditions in both men and women.

Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity.

Our Practice Philosophy

Our evidence-based Restorative Medicine approach is a five-point model of wellness focused on optimizing function in the areas of mind (subconscious and conscious), body, hormones, nutrition and toxin removal.  All symptoms and disease come from imbalances in these five areas. 

We take the time to individualize our therapeutic plans for each patient, based on their history, clinical signs and laboratory tests--treating the patient rather than merely their symptoms.  Hormones work in concert, as a symphony, influencing each other to restore health and alleviate problems associated with the natural process of aging.  The intricate endocrine network must be in balance.  In order for hormone replacement therapy to be effective, optimal levels of micro-nutrients and vitamins are essential in a supportive role, allowing hormones to function properly.  Our individualized care provides you with a personal path to achieve those optimal levels of hormones and nutrients, sustained through eliminating toxins and using stress-reducing techniques in an integrative approach to attain good health and well being.
