Our Unique Approach

Our Pedro Gonzalez MD Roadmap is a unique approach to help women regain their energy, focus and hormone balance naturally so they can live life fully, feeling and looking their best… especially if you’ve already seen lots of doctors.

Women often experience a wide range of hormonal symptoms (even after seeing health experts) because areas that directly impact their hormones are not addressed or often ignored.

We partner with each client to achieve these steps, starting with the Review Phase:

During the intake, we’ll review your past medical history and any previous lab tests, so we can assess hormonal symptoms or anything your doctor might have missed.
Next, we'll determine the need for additional lab tests to help pinpoint the real reasons for your hormonal symptoms are out of control and to understand your current hormone and stress levels.
After that, we'll prioritize our treatment approach for immediate symptom relief – utilizing a variety of healing protocols, including BHRT or supplements if required. We will adjust your treatment approach based on your unique needs & situation.
We will typically start by focusing on sleep & stress management so we can rebalance your nervous system and dial down stress triggers that might affect your other hormones. Specifically, we’ll strengthen parasympathetic tone to help you shift from “flight or flight” to “rest and digest” mode – while dialing down inflammatory signals and enhancing mood and focus.
Next, we’ll tweak your nutrition & diet so we can repair any nutritional deficiencies that might be responsible for some of your symptoms.
In the hormone rebalancing step, we provide thyroid and adrenal support to restore energy and improve metabolism. We also cover blood sugar balance and address possible insulin resistance that can keep you from losing weight and feeling energized. Plus we restore proper levels of reproductive hormones such as estrogen, progesterone & testosterone.
Next, to restore proper gut health, we work to remove pathogens that are often at the root of gut dysbiosis, repairing the gut lining to reestablish intestinal integrity, and replenishing the microbiome to properly digest food, improve nutrient absorption as well as neurotransmitter production important for balanced mood.
Then we might focus on detox and cellular balance – helping you reduce your body’s toxic burden, avoid toxins in the first place, and replenishing your cellular machinery for an energized life.
In the final step, we’ll add targeted followup and wellness services, so you can continue to reap the benefits for years to come. Given our functional approach, we recognize the importance of curating an ongoing self-care routine to avoid depleting your body.
