Thyroid and Hormone Balancing
Have you been tested by your GP and told that your thyroid is “normal” and everything looks fine? But yet you still feel like crap and know something is not right. Then this is for you. Holly Warner Health Team works together to get you the most comprehensive labs to show what your levels are REALLY at and of course offers you executive healthcare to get those hormones and thyroid issues balanced out to optimal levels. You have access to Holly, her clinical approach to nutrition, comprehensive labs, a nurse practitioner to prescribe bio identical hormone therapy or thyroid if necessary and full follow up.
Improve your overall health
When you think you have found the answer, only to reveal other underlying conditions, you may feel hopeless. Remember that these are symptoms of a deeper root cause, finding and healing the root cause will heal the surrounding symptoms. They are a manifestation of the root issue. Is a headache just a headache or was it caused by hunger, lack of sleep or stress? When you get the rest required, have a meal or go on a stress releasing yoga retreat do you feel better? So the headache was just a symptom of a deeper issue. The same can be said for many health issues.
Our adrenal glands secrete cortisol, our stress hormone. Adrenal dysfunction happens in various stages, due to an imbalance of cortisol. If cortisol is too low, too high or the DHEA:Cortisol ratio is off you will experience symptoms of adrenal dysfunction. Adrenal fatigue also known as adrenal dysfunction is the brains communication with your adrenals being thrown off. It’s a brain stress issue which means you need to fix and support the systems that feed the brain. Some of the symptoms you may experience when adrenal dysfunction is present:
- having a hard time “getting going” in the morning
- Low libido (sex drive, what’s that?)
- Cravings for certain foods (salty or sugary)
- Sleep issues
- Difficulty losing weight (especially that visceral fat in the mid section- hello muffin top)
- Weak or brittle nails
- Chronic inflammation – this is a serious one and can manifest in other health issues (autoimmune disease)
- Blood sugar issues
- Headaches, specifically in the afternoon
- Dizziness when standing up (this also relates to blood sugar issues)
- 3 PM slump – but you get a second wind in the evening which can also mean having a hard time falling or staying asleep.
I run a comprehensive, non-invasive (saliva) adrenal panel allowing you an in-depth look at your stress hormones and how they are affecting you. I test not once but four separate, specific times in that one day to give an accurate reading of your cortisol levels, DHEA and HPA axis.

Your gut is home to trillions of beneficial bacteria. You have 10 times more of these bacteria in your gastrointestinal system than you have cells in your body. This highly sophisticated system is where 80% of your immune system resides. 95% of your body’s serotonin (the “feel-good” hormone), is found not in the brain but in your gut. Your microbiome contains 100 trillion bacteria, makes up 80% of your immune system and contains 10x more bacterial cells than human cells. Due to the gut-brain axis the health of your brain and mood (this includes anxiety and depression, are dependant on the health of your gut. In turn the health of your gut (microbiome) is dependant on the health of your brain.
If you suffer from anxiety, depression or other related issues you may want to look into one of our comprehensive tests. Healing the gut can be a long and complicated road, especially if intestinal permeability is involved (leaky gut)
