Functional Medicine Hormone Testing
In this video Amy Myers, MD explains the functional medicine hormone testing that she does in her functional medicine clinic Austin UltraHealth. When we talk about risk factors for breast, uterine, ovarian and prostate cancer – it’s not what is the total amount of estrogen you have in your body but rather how you breakdown or metabolize your estrogen.
Our body breaks down estrogen into cancer protective metabolites (smaller pieces) or cancer causing metabolites.
Watch this video to learn more about the functional medicine hormone testing that I do on all my patients to see how their body breaks down estrogen and what their risk is for breast, uterine, ovarian or prostate cancer. If you are on any form of hormones or considering going on them – this video is a MUST watch.
