The Secret to Balancing Hormones
The aim of using Holistic and Functional Medicine is to manage the patient’s symptoms while nourishing the mind and body in a way that will assist with the adjustments to the ovaries, uterus, thyroid, pituitary, and hypothalamus.
Our goal should not be to simply override the body’s naturally fluctuating hormonal rhythms (i.e. raise circulating levels of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, etc.), but to support the health of the body as a whole... (download full article)
"A New Year New Me!
It is never too late to work towards being the healthiest you. In the past year I’ve had medical conditions which have affected my health. Blood work revealed that I was anemic and Vitamin D deficient. I suffered from HOT FLASHES, pre-menstrual migraines and restful sleep. I knew I had to change something about my health, so I made the decision to work towards being the healthiest me!
Through a mutual friend, I was referred to Dr. Puskar. Under her care I began to have a healthy attitude towards food. Dr. Puskar’s knowledge and support helped me to discover the connection of how food affects my body.
After making some changes, I started to notice some significant improvements in my health, such as:
• The first time in years my anemia levels are within range
• Vitamin D levels have finally reached the normal range
• No more HOT FLASHES
• No more PRE-MENSTRUAL migraines
• And finally, restful sleep!
If you stay committed to the process, you will see the results. Making a lifestyle change for optimal health was important to me and additionally, people have stated that I look radiant and younger than my actual age.
Thank you Dr. Puskar for the awesome care you give along with your staff! They are very dedicated to seeing you achieve optimal health."
For seven years, I have been diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome. This condition causes an imbalance of HORMONES which causes weight gain, acne, and irregular periods. This is a problem when you are a young couple trying to have children.
When trying to have my two older children, I tried everything from studies for new medications to finally trying the 30-year-old standby, an oral prescription. After over a year of invasive tests, daily blood work and sonograms, I would finally end up pregnant. After having my second child, I decided to try and get my body healthy – without drugs.
I was referred to Dr. Lori about three months ago. I met with her, got started on a program, and within two months, I lost 12 pounds. My periods were regulating, and I just found out I am pregnant! If I had only known that a few months of focusing on healing my whole body would in turn result in a child, I would have come years ago!
I feel so blessed to actually be able to see my body getting better! Thank you!
I felt very tired, stressed and unable to lose weight before coming in to see Dr. Lori. My hair and skin felt dry and itchy and my HORMONE levels were out of control. I was having constant HOT FLASHES, achy joints and very low energy.
Now I’ve been losing weight, my inflammation is mostly gone, my hair and skin also feel and look great. I can walk long distances now with no achy joints and my HOT FLASHES are so much more manageable. My brain fog is gone and I feel so much more energetic!
Over the fast four years I have experienced low energy, tiredness, an inability to concentrate and very poor motivation. Life felt flat, and I was just getting by. I am a strong individual with no complaints but this was a new feeling. I had blood work done and it showed elevated levels of THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE (TSH) and high triglycerides. My GP wanted me to go on medications but I was reluctant to start on medications that might have side effects. I was confused and scared. I tried to help myself through healthy diet and exercise but this did not work.
One week ago I had my first experience with Dr. Lori Puskar Tailor-Made Program. In about one half hour of lying on your doctor's table, a pain free assessment was given and based on your findings you recommended five all natural supplements designed to help increase communication within my body.
Within a week my productivity at work and at home life was exponential improved and I felt like my old self. My eyes felt open for the first time in four years and I am getting the pep back in my stride. I can not believe how accurate your assessment was and your recommendations have paid huge dividends.
Thank you for giving me my zest for life back.
“I came in because I had chronic sinus infections. After about four months of a new diet and the proper supplements, I no longer have any symptoms and no more sinus problems. In addition, I lost 10 pounds without any effort; also, I no longer had the severe PMS symptoms, such as irritability. I am even saving money by not buying all the store vitamins I thought I needed. I feel better than I have in 15 years. I feel healthy again.”
I thought I was permanently going to have to suffer with lower back pain. I’m a 47 year old woman and after having 2 kids I was left “permanently” suffering with lower back pain. Feeling like an old lady and experiencing hand joint pain, lower back, neck, shoulder and right knee pain with swelling, I started my Tailor-Made Holistic Program with Dr. Puskar.
Dr. Puskar’s Analysis showed me how bad my body really was. After taking my nutritional supplements, my lower back and left shoulder pain (which I thought was permanent) was improved and didn’t feel so “permanent” anymore! I am happy to report that I no longer have neck, joint pain, swelling of the right knee, heart burn and hot flashes. In addition, my hair loss has stopped, and I actually see a lot of fine short hairs coming through. As far as my allergies, they are gone! I can’t believe it, I was tired all the time and didn’t even realize it, now I’m another person! My HORMONE levels changed as well and thankfully it has helped my marriage. My goal is to stay healthy for retirement and I have learned that there is no point in having money, if you’re not healthy to enjoy it!
Thank you Dr. Puskar God bless you to continue helping other people.
"I had chronic IBS with pain and diarrhea plus the following: chronic fatigue, weight gain around the middle, daily headaches, HOT FLASHES, sleeplessness, unable to think clearly and complete tasks, dark circles around the eyes and puffiness, constant cravings for sweet foods and other “bad” foods, breathlessness at times, parasites and colon blockages.
“The IBS is under control and I now feel confident to go out. I have lots more energy!! I look and feel great. I have lost 3 ½ inches around my waist. The headaches have gone. I am having fewer and less intense HOT FLASHES. I am sleeping through the night. My mental capabilities are better. The puffy eyes have diminished, the dark circles are improved and my skin looks great. The cravings have gone. The parasites seem to have “calmed”.
“I feel better and my colon is less blocked and irritated.”
Before, I had a general "sick" feeling. Did not sleep well. Spent 98% of my day bloated and tired despite eating a "healthy diet." I had months at a time when I had unexplained dizziness. I was missing periods and I have suffered unexplained miscarriages. My HORMONES were off and I was on medication to level my prolactin.
Now, I feel GREAT! I am no longer bloated all the time. I sleep amazing through the night. I have regular bowel movements. Never thought that would happen for me! I am happy all the time, have a positive attitude. No longer suffer dizziness. On top of all that I have clearer skin, softer hair and visible cellulite on my thighs are GONE! We are still working on my menstrual cycle but my HORMONES are leveling and there is no sign of high prolactin.
I decided to take action after I had a gall bladder attack. It really made me face the fact that I could no longer keep up with what was accumulating in my body. I had been looking for a natural method.
My gall bladder is no longer a problem and I am confident that the chemicals we have been finding and detoxing were at the heart of the problem. So now, so I am not just recovered but am also much healthier. Along the way, we’ve also handled HOT FLASHES, another manifestation of my toxin overwhelm, so everything is coming together.
I may still have a way to go but every reaction that’s come up or discomfort I’d gotten used to is being corrected as my body is freed of the obstacles that were preventing healing. Needless to say, real healing is where it’s at. I refuse to accept anything less.
I’d like to thank Dr. Puskar and her wonderful associates for making their office a sane oasis in the otherwise chaotic and incompetent medical world today.
I am most happy to report that I am feeling much better. I woke up feeling like I have made a turn for the better. Hooray! The past 2 nights I have slept better. I have not woken up in the middle of the night with a panic attack or my back hurting, or a HOT FLASH. My stools are more normal. The pain in my chest (esophagus) is gone. I still have some bloating but not as much.
Thank you so much for your assistance in getting back to my energetic self. We are continuing to eat healthier and exercise regularly.
