What Kind Of Clients Does Carpathia Collaborative Treat?
Women’s Health And Hormone Balance
Our clinicians see many women who are dealing with hormonal changes and challenges from PMS, PCOS and mood swings to infertility, endometriosis, fibroids and menopause.
We use a Functional approach addressing all systems of the body to be able to maximize your response with minimal hormones, and we only use Bio-Identical hormones rather than synthetic.
We prescribe in a variety of forms from using standard pharmacy formulations, to specialty compounded ones. Including estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. We DO NOT use pellets, particularly for women [Dr. Christensen sees all the pellet disasters!]
Chronic Health Condition
Many of our clients have visited a number of traditionally trained doctors with their complex chronic symptoms yet they still don’t’ feel well and know another prescription Rx is not the answer.
A whole systems, functional approach helps to get to and treat the root cause of conditions such as:
- Autoimmune Thyroid issues such as Hashimoto’s
- Autoimmune and Inflammatory conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, arthritis asthma, ulcerative colitis, Chrohns, and chronic sinus infections
