Take this short quiz to find out if undiagnosed gut or hormonal imbalances are to blame!
Patients rarely associate symptoms like brain fog, joint pain or allergies with impaired gut health, but the microbiome and the protective gut lining are our body's first defense!
That's why going deeper on possible gut imbalances & stealth infections is part of our integrative approach... so we can dial down inflammation & premature aging.
Sometimes, your hormones aren’t actually the problem, and that's why hormone replacement therapy alone isn't helpful. Using an integrative approach, we first evaluate all possible root causes of hormonal dysfunction – including possible gut imbalances & nutrient deficiencies that can be easily corrected with high-quality supplements.
Your body's hormone system is pretty complex, and that's why trying to "fix" hormonal imbalances on its own will always backfire. Sluggish liver function, poor gut health or insulin resistance push hormones out of whack... so we need to address those issues first before looking into complementary treatment options like bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
Meet Shilpa Sayana, MD
I became interested in a holistic approach to medicine that attempts to figure out the root cause of illness after I was diagnosed with a tumor that thankfully turned out to be harmless.
Being trained in a western medicine framework I underwent additional training on “root cause medicine” and alternative ways of preventing disease and illness. I love spending time with patients and figuring out what is the true root cause that may have triggered their symptoms.
At Sayana Medical and Wellness Center, we believe in a partnership with our patients , where we can dig deeper and figure out what is happening with their bodies/minds and make better informed choices to improve their health and wellbeing. We provide State-of-the-art tests that can help you understand what your body is saying. We hope to inspire you to make small but important changes to your lifestyle. And we would like to be your guide in helping you decide between what healing tools are best for you both – medicinal and natural options.
Our mission is to find and resolve the root cause of your symptoms so you can get well and love the way you feel.
On top of all the pressures of everyday life, women are often faced with the physical, mental and emotional effects of hormonal imbalance. It's time to change that!
Most women remain unaware of conditions like PCOS that may have manifested due to hormonal irregularities – and miss out on reducing risk for more serious conditions!
Mood swings, hot flashes & weight gain are surefire symptoms, but hormonal imbalances manifest in a myriad of other symptoms from urinary incontinence to brain fog!
Helping people live a more balanced & healthier life isn't just our job, it's our passion! We take our commitment to lifelong, optimal health + wellness very seriously... incorporating the latest scientific advances and dedicated to the very best care possible.
We focus on giving you the care you need, not the care sanctioned by health insurance – which is why our programs include longer appointment times, more communication, more advanced testing and guidance on lifestyle factors that can truly make or break your health.
We like to think of ourselves as your trusted partner towards a healthier, more resilient life – supporting you every step of the way, because we know what's possible when you have the right guide by your side!
If you haven't found the answers you've been looking for with traditional medicine and still feel unheard, you are in the right place! We're excited to make you our next success story, so let's take the first step with the quiz :)
"I am a holistic dentist, and I started going to Dr. Sayana to optimize my health. I was really impressed with her two hour long consultation, where she went in depth into my medical history, including my family’s history. She is a caring, compassionate doctor, who is extremely knowledgeable, and really knows how to combine Functional Medicine with lifestyle changes and dietary supplements, to achieve the best results in your health. She also offers services like IV nutrition, which I believe are hugely beneficial one I’m feeling drained. I highly recommend her office."
"Dr. Sayana and Nurse Sara have been my health care providers for a few years. They have supported me through Covid (twice!), hormonal changes, and terrible fatigue, all through the use of supplements and being very supportive of a low stress, healthy lifestyle. They are thorough and really listen to your symptoms. They take a holistic approach, and help you identify the root cause of your symptoms. I am very happy to have them as my primary care team"
"At Sayana Medical Center, Doctors are very dedicated, caring and highly educated. They help patients over and beyond expectations. Thank you Dr. Sayana for having such a great healthcare medical center along with other Doctors treating patients like your own family. Also your staff are always courteous and helpful to patients."
