Cortisol is produced by our adrenal glands and is the main hormone in our body responsible for our tolerance of and response to prolonged stress. In our modern constantly connected world, ongoing 24/7 stress has become the norm for most people. This has resulted in an epidemic of stress-induced illness and cortisol imbalances, also known as adrenal fatigue.
At The De Pieri Clinic, our practitioners go beyond the traditional testing to get to the bottom of your issues. They have a extensive knowldge to order and read in-depth cortisol test results which generally do not get ordered at at general practioners office. By integrating a science-based approach and aspects of alternative medicine, leadis to a more successful recovery for patients. Prescription medications are often necessary, but should never be used at the expense of attempting to find and correct the root cause of disease.
Becoming A Patient:
Please fill in the contact form below, and request a Functional Medicine Information package. Please select either Dr. Dawson (naturopath) or Dr. Frouws(MD) as they are the practitioners that offer this specific service.This package includes further information such as fees, types of testing offered and appointment information. It also includes a questionnaire, which will help the doctor understand your health history, and prepare for your first appointment. Once the questionnaire is completed and returned, your first appointment will be scheduled.
As always at The De Pieri Clinic, a full medical assessment is done to determine whether you are a candidate for hormone therapy. At this assessment, testing will be arranged, and a subsequent visit will be scheduled to review results, prescribe medication and provide your treatment plan.
Please note that we are not a General Practice, and we require all of our patients to have a regular Family Doctor, with whom we are happy to collaborate and share results if you so desire.
We look forward to working with you to reach personal optimal wellness!
