Stephanie M. King, D.C., FNP-C – Salt Lake City Bioidentical Hormones Specialist
Salt Lake City Bioidentical Hormones Specialist, Stephanie King, D.C., FNP-C, of Life Health Medical Center has a passion for health and wellness and helping those whose doctors have given up. She does not give up, and in fact, she loves pursuing a challenge. She enjoys going to work each day hoping there is a new challenge waiting for her to solve. She even endearingly calls her group of patients the 10% because they are the ones that require extra attention, more time, and that TLC that she has in her heart to give because of her love for her family, which is really what her patients are to her.
Whether it is treating illness, weight issues, hormone imbalances, or joint issues, no matter what you’ve tried, you haven’t tried them all until you’ve worked with Dr. King! Hormonal imbalances and endocrine issues are uniquely close to Dr. King’s heart, as her own mom suffered severe pre-menopausal symptoms leaving her home-bound for nearly 3 years during the time Dr. King was doing her internship. Seeing the need for better-than-patch care, knowing it’s not in your head, and coming from a single parent home, she knew she was going to develop a program that would address all the issues of lifestyle, nutrition, foods and hormones along with making it affordable for everyone.
With more then 20 years behind her and a continued drive to learn, she is the perfect combination of education, experience, and compassion. Her patients, who encompass celebrities, athletes, judges, doctors, and people from all walks of life, say on a daily basis, “I know Stephanie will have the answer,” and she does!
In her new book Dr. King breaks down the basics of hormone dysregulation and provides a step-by-step path to gain your ultimate health in “Is It Me or Is it Hot in Here?”
What are Bioidentical Hormones?
- Learn More About Bioidentical Hormones
Because hormones affect so many functions of the human body, it may take you a while to realize that many of the uncomfortable symptoms you are experiencing are related. For example, you may receive individual prescriptions for frequent headaches or insomnia only to continue to struggle in other areas. This is because most traditional doctors treat symptoms without exploring the root cause. You become increasingly frustrated and discouraged as your doctor keeps missing the connection between your symptoms and hormone imbalance.
Some doctors may suggest synthetic hormone replacement therapy after other treatments fail to bring relief. Unfortunately, this may make your problems worse. Synthetic hormones are associated with several serious health conditions, including endometrial cancers, blood clots, heart attack, abnormal liver function, and pancreatitis. Additionally, they generally take longer for the body to accept and process. While the above complications are uncommon, many people do experience common side effects like nausea and muscle cramping. These can be bothersome enough for them to stop taking the synthetic hormones or prescription pills their doctors have given them.
The first major difference between Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy and synthetic hormones is that Bioidentical Hormones are created from natural plant based extracts. The natural hormones in these plants remain unchanged during the compounding process because they are nearly identical to the natural hormonal structure that exists in the human body. For most people on Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, the similar cellular structure means that the compound is metabolized in the body faster and easier. With their hormones in balance, men and women in the 30’s, 40’s, and beyond are able to enjoy renewed energy, better health, and a more positive outlook on life.
Due to the natural interactions of Bioidentical Hormones and the body, patients are able to experience prolonged symptom relief without the risk of further complications or any undesirable side effects.
