Hormonal Optimization

Hormone optimization is a critical element of quality health for men and women and is often overlooked in many cases. At Regenerate, we offer a range of hormone balancing options to address health problems common among women and men of all ages and activity levels. Various hormones, ranging from sex hormones, thyroid hormones, stress hormones, etc. are altered by disruptions in our sleep and wake cycles, changes in our stress response, environmental factors, exercise patterns and dietary and nutritional deficiencies, amongst others. With hormone disrupting chemical ever present in today’s food, cosmetics and water achieving hormonal optimization is an increasingly allusive challenge for most people.

The goal at Regenerate Health is to approach hormonal imbalances in an integrated and individualized way.  There is no one approach that fits every person.  We believe in balancing your system so you can achieve hormone optimization naturally. We offer personalized treatment plans including nutrition, botanical medicine, multi-nutrient IV therapy, natural bioidentical hormones and medically supervised fitness. Diagnostic testing of hormones and urine metabolites give the best strategy for designing a healthy plan for the longevity of treatment and are often used in diagnosing your specific hormonal dysregulation.

Dr. ACE is committed to getting your body back on track and performing well so you can live a powerful healthy life. If you believe you are experiencing hormone imbalance symptoms, please contact our Naturopathic Doctor today.  805-620-7122.

Low Testosterone (Low T) 

Millions of men (and increasingly women) are living their lives with low T, and suffering from side effects such as decreased sex drive, depression, weight gain, and erectile dysfunction (ED). Testosterone levels begin to decline at a rate of 10% per decade, and may fall more rapidly with stress, environmental toxins such as xenoestrogens, and a poor diet. Testosterone Balancing and or Replacement Therapy may be the right choice to improve symptoms while working to improve the conditions for health and well-being.

"I went to see Dr. ACE, because I had two bulged thoracic disks that keep getting re-injured every year; With her expertise, knowledge and use of very targeted machines, she not only broke the re-injured cycle, but in addition she customized a nutritional and exercise plan to improve my overall well-being. So I highly recommend Dr. ACE and Regenerate Health Medical Center, for all your medical, sport and nutrition needs.” - Jorge

"Dr Ace is truly brilliant - she is kind and knows her stuff! Thank you Dr Ace!” - Angela

"I can not recommend Dr. ACE and Regenerate more highly. She is a compassionate, thoughtful, passionate doctor who thinks strategically and is using cutting edge technology and research to get her patients truly better. I have a host of health issues including a chronic injury in my right hand, wrist and shoulder that I have struggled with for years. I have seen a lot of orthos, PT's chiro's, acupuncturist, etc. and some have helped but no one has been able to really break the cycle of pain I deal with, especially when I try and exercise. Dr. ACE is so knowledgable and knew exactly what to ask, what to check for and what to do. She created a comprehensive plan including diet, supplement recommendations, prolotherapy, voltage therapy and now personal training. In a few short weeks, I have seen actual results including less pain, increased strength (which I didn't think was possible) and for once, I have hope that I can recover from these injuries that have plagued me and kept me from getting stronger. I could not more highly recommend her for any medical issue you are facing.” - Amy

"I have been seeing Dr. ACE since February 2016 and she has been extremely proactive in finding out about my health issues. Dr. ACE has found out more about my health in less than two months than my regular doctors have in decades. She is very educated and dedicated in her field and is like a CSI figuring out why I'm having the life limiting symptoms I have been experiencing. If you want to understand and know what's going on with your body instead of the regular route of being sent home with a bunch of preventative medications I highly recommend a visit to Dr. ACE!” - Caroline

“After 1 prolotherapy treatment my ankle pain is 50% better. I should have come to Dr. ACE years ago when my tendonitis started! I’ll be referring everyone I know to Dr. ACE.” - Clint
