For individuals who want to optimize their focus, productivity, and health, and for those experiencing insomnia, fatigue, hair loss, lack of focus, anxiety, or low sex drive, hormone imbalance is one of the most common factors influencing cognitive performance, fertility, and general health. Some of the most powerful hormones in the body include cortisol, testosterone, estradiol (estrogen), progesterone, DHEA-S, SHBG, and FSH/LH.
Janet Chang helps clients zero in on the most likely causes of their unique situation and provide guidance on the appropriate lab tests, most of which are not ordered by medical doctors or naturopaths, due to lack of financial incentives by insurance companies for major U.S. hospitals and clinics.
Second, during a follow-up session, lab tests will be interpreted using the latest research findings in endocrinology. The client will be advised on the safest, most effective treatments (including lifestyle interventions, over-the-counter supplements, and prescription medications).
Lastly, clients are advised on how to best acquire the treatments, either over-the-counter or with the help of a medical practitioner if necessary, in addition to advice on the lab biomarkers to use to monitor their health.
Bio: After experiencing the debilitating symptoms of a hormone condition called hypopituitarism, Janet's body shut down and she was rendered bedridden and at a loss for help. She went to seek professional help, only to be told by Stanford University's best doctors, endocrinologists, and specialists that she did not in fact have any known condition, and that there was nothing that could be done. She proceeded to scour the internet for help, researching hundreds of scientific journal papers and dozens of little-known books in the medical community. Three years later, using a simple, systematic, and scientific approach, she was able to completely cure her condition and receive the appropriate treatment from medical professionals. She wrote the guidebook, Cracking Your Hormone Code (http://crackingyourhormonecode.com/) in 2015 to help others with hormone imbalances how to navigate the tricky landscape of medical practice and hormone treatment. She is an avid participant of the Health 2.0 community and has spoken to audiences at Stanford University, UCLA, Health Technology Forum, and Quantified Self about self-treatment methods available to the regular layperson.
