She views herself as your partner in your journey to your best self and strives to create individualized programs that work best for your unique goals and lifestyle.
The hormone-balancing protocols used by Dr. Holly incorporate the foundational components of diet and lifestyle, nutritional and herbal supplements, and bio-identical hormone replacement, as required on an individual basis. Acupuncture is often included to further improve the success of hormone balancing. For all cases, Dr. Holly’s primary goal is to provide quick symptomatic relief and to determine the root cause of your hormone imbalance so that it can be corrected for long term health. Addressing digestive health, detox pathways, underlying inflammation, sleep, mood and stress-management are key components of her protocols.
