Orthomolecular Medicine & Bioidentical Hormones
Balancing deficiencies, alleviating complaints, halting the ageing process - this book offers support for various questions and is also comprehensible for medically interested laypersons.
How do micronutrients interact in our body? How does the thyroid gland work? How do hormones and nutrients contribute to our health? Here you will find the answers.
Helena Orfanos-Boeckel is a doctor of holistic internal medicine and an expert in the field of the body's nutrients and hormones.
What distinguishes the book "Nährstoff-Therapie"?
Informative and detailed
"It's crazy, everyone agrees that nutrients and hormones are vital, and yet they are not systematically used. Yet our biochemistry, which connects everything like a web, can be functionally measured, customised with nutrients and hormones to improve metabolic function. The more robust the metabolism, the better we can cope with stress and age, the better our well-being and the longer we can maintain or restore health. This is what you will learn in this book and hopefully learn to use for yourself."

Health and prevention with the body's own nutrients
A lack of nutrients and endogenous hormones makes our bodies sensitive, lacks energy, makes us age earlier and accompanies many diseases. But does the intake of nutrients and hormones help? Yes, very much so! - is what the experienced holistic physician and metabolism expert Helena Orfanos-Boeckel has been finding in her work for over 20 years. Detecting physical weaknesses by means of detailed laboratory examinations and treating them specifically with nutrients and the body's own hormones brings demonstrable success.
"Vitamin deficiency? - But I eat so healthy!"
- Recognising hidden deficiencies: Exhaustion, depression, sleep and digestive disorders, pain, high sensitivity, Hashimoto's thyroiditis and stress often go hand in hand with a nutrient deficiency and hormonal imbalance at the cellular level that cannot be detected by a general blood test.
- Read laboratory values correctly: detect hidden dysfunctions with the appropriate laboratory diagnostics, know the correct reference values and draw the effective therapeutic conclusions.
- The most important substances of life: vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids and hormones - which substances can be used specifically in therapeutic dosages for the most common diseases and have the best results.
Exciting findings for more vitality, less metabolic sensitivity and a long healthy life.
