Natural Hormones

Hormones are some of the most powerful molecules in our bodies. Many adults are living with depleted hormones, due to stress, toxicity, and aging.Today, people are living longer, and have more chronic diseases which alternative health specialists believe are directly related to the loss of hormone balance.

Natural Hormones

Women's Health

Which hormones should be replaced if deficient? The most common are Thyroid, Cortisol, Progesterone, Estriol, Estradiol, Testosterone, DHEA, Pregnenolone, Human Growth Hormone, and Melatonin. Hormone therapy is important, because most hormones decline with age and/or removal of the ovaries.

Men's Health

Optimal levels of T are usually what would be expected for a man in about his early 30’s. Before doing T replacement therapy, it is essential to assess a baseline level through a simple blood test. Only men who are deficient in T or have sub-optimal levels will be treated at Optimal Health Spectrums.

HCG Weight Loss

HCG is a hormone, which can be administered as part of a medically supervised low calorie diet with the potential to produce amazing weight loss results. HCG suppresses appetite and helps burn stored body fat. The HCG diet helps maintain muscle tissue while still enabling you to lose an average of ½ -1 pound per day.

Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal Fatigue is at epidemic proportions today, due to our stressful lives. Adrenal Fatigue is a medical condition where there is sub-optimal Cortisol production by the adrenal glands, leading to exhaustion, feeling burned out, overwhelmed, irritable, and a feeling of not being able to cope with normal life.

Thyroid Hormones

Did you know that the thyroid gland makes two thyroid hormones, and that the most commonly prescribed thyroid medications (Synthroid, L-Thyroxine, and Levothroid) only contain one of them? And it isn't even the most important one? Wouldn't you rather have both, the way nature intended?

IV Therapy

I.V. nutrient therapy is the infusion of nutrients such as vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream. This bypasses the digestive system and allows nutrients to reach the cells and tissues where they are needed the most. Nutrient therapy is a fast and efficient way to revitalize the immune system.

Food Allergies

An IgG (Immunoglobulin type G) reaction is a delayed, systemic inflammatory response to a food, which can show up as behavior problems in children – or pain, fatigue and irritability in adults, hours or even days after eating the offending food, making it very difficult to pinpoint which food is causing the problem.

Detoxification

Heavy metals attach to the inside and outside of our cells, causing the immune system to see those cells as abnormal, initiating an autoimmune response, and by causing direct oxidative stress. Think of oxidative stress as the cell being “on fire” from free radicals that “burn” or damage the cell inside and out.

GI Treatments

Many people may wonder why we have to pay so much attention to the GI and Immune systems. It is actually impossible to be healthy unless these systems are in good working order. The GI and Immune systems are intimately related to each other. Up to 70% of the immune system actually resides in the intestinal track..

Diet and Nutrition

A proper diet and nutritional supplementation program is essential for optimal health in today’s world. Dietary intervention and nutritional supplementation are the important first step of our treatment program. Most of the pre-prepared food that we eat is very poor quality, low in essential nutrients, and at worst, is actually toxic.

Telomeres Testing

Telomeres are the end-caps of your chromosomes. Many published studies show that telomere length is directly correlated with health and longevity. We can test the length of your telomeres and institute proper treatment protocols if they are abnormally short. Telomerase is an enzyme that lengthens telomeres.

Autoimmune

Autoimmune disorders, regardless of type, are caused by similar underlying environmental triggers. We will do tests to find what your triggers are. By treating the underlying triggers, we can help to calm the immune fire within without making you sick with toxic medication, which helps you to be healthier overall!

Asthma Treatment

There are definite environmental triggers and biochemical imbalances that make asthma worse. At OHS, we find out what you are deficient in and what you are reacting to that is causing your asthma to flare, and to get it under control. Our Integrative approach to asthma treats all of the triggers.

Do you remember what it feels like to feel good? When was the last time you felt that way? Was it when you were a child, teenager, young adult, or maybe never? Mood and optimal brain function depends on a healthy body with all necessary biological compounds, including all major nutrients and hormones, to be present in optimal amounts. When it comes to your health, you don’t want to be just “normal,” you want to be optimal!

Bay Area Bioidentical Hormone Doctor

Lynne Mielke is affiliated with Forever Health

Dr. Lynne Mielke, who founded Optimal Health Spectrums, offers Integrative Wellness Medicine for adults and children, including comprehensive Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, HCG Diet programs, food allergy testing, individualized nutritional assessment and supplementation protocols, heavy metal detoxification or chelation, mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and optimization of the gastrointestinal and immune systems for a healthier and happier you!

At Optimal Health Spectrums, we believe that your health requires a balance among all of the body’s systems, and that just drugging a symptom is not the best approach.  We practice evidence-based Integrative Medicine for men’s, women’s, and children’s health. We look and test for the underlying CAUSES of your symptoms, and treat those causes usually with non-drug approaches, so that the symptoms naturally go away, many times without medication. If a medication is still needed, it can still be used, but it is the last resort, not the first resort.

Lab reference ranges are based on mass population norms. But what if the majority of people today are not optimally healthy? Then the reference ranges are not optimal for health either. That is the situation that we are in today. As an example, the “normal” age for the onset of puberty has been consistently lowered over the years.  Could it be that entire large groups of children are being affected by toxins such as plastics that act as hormone disrupters and are artificially pushing children into puberty before they are mentally or physically ready?  Instead of trying to find treatable causes of early puberty, the American Academy of Pediatrics just keeps pushing the normal age for puberty onset earlier and earlier. There are many examples of similar false logic in traditional adult medicine also – e.g. most thyroid lab norms are not optimal either.

Your first visit at our Integrative Medical Clinic will include a history of your current symptoms and medical problems, a brief physical exam, and then we will order lab tests appropriate for your situation.  Our lab testing is more extensive than at most doctor’s offices because we test many body systems at the same time, looking for the underlying causes of your health problems, knowing how they all inter-connect.  Your initial treatment protocol may include some nutritional supplements that are important for your health situation, possible dietary advice, lifestyle recommendations, educational reading recommendations, as well as conventional medical advice, when needed.

When your lab tests come back we will have a follow-up appointment where we will review them together, every test will be explained to you, and you will get copies of them all.  Additional treatment recommendations based upon your lab results and symptoms will be made at that time.

As we work together as a team to optimize your health, you will be learning lots of important new information on how to prevent diseases in the future, and how to get healthy now!

I simply cannot say enough about how wonderful I feel after 6 months of seeing Dr. Mielke. I was feeling tired all the time, having terrible night sweats and had gained a fairly large amount of weight in a very short time. Within the first week after receiving bioidentical hormones and supplements I was already feeling better. Its been 6 months and I FEEL LIKE A NEW WOMAN! Not only do I have more energy but I have also lost almost 20 pounds. I am sleeping better then I have in years and no longer wake up drenched with sweat. I was skeptical about bioidentical hormone replacement at first but I am so glad I found Dr. Mielke and Optimal Health Spectrums. THANK YOU DR. MIELKE FOR GIVING ME MY LIFE BACK!!!
