Functional Medicine

    My daughter keeps getting chalazions in her upper lids. She has tried tweaking her hormones with her doctor's help and upping her testosterone seemed to help for a few months, but she got another one. They always come with her periods which is what made her realize there was some kind of hormonal link. She's 37. I've been hearing a lot about functional medicine. Does anyone know of a functional medicine physician in the Phoenix area? Or any idea about this whole chalazion issue?

    No idea about chalazion, but check out functionalmedicine.org to try to find a practitioner.

    Yep.....blocked ducts and it is usually but a bad EFA balance that increases series two prostaglandins......and is increased by a low PG to E2 ratio.......very common manifestation of an estrogen collector. I bet she has Bristol stool chart one or two as well.

    Ah, thanks Doc! Will tell her for sure! She should schedule a consult with you.

    I am hoping some of the consults I did would post about them.........They have worn my ass out. I need a glass of wine. I have two left.......before this epic is over.



    Next one may be the coolest one I have done.

    You are so smart. You nailed her! She had dropped her fish oil to 1/4 of what she was taking, I checked her progesterone ratio just yesterday and told her to up and she's type I and II stool. LOL We'll schedule the consult and I'll post results for her. She was impressed. I'd already left for church and she called to tell me you'd totally nailed it.
