Functional medicine

Treat the root cause,
not just the symptoms.

Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine is a personalised medical approach for patients, that focuses on prevention and the underlying root causes of (chronic) diseases. It is a science-based field of health care that considers the complete biochemistry of the body, right down to the DNA. Functional medicine can help diagnose and treat a variety of symptoms and illnesses.

The book

The menopause taboo

Nora Hendriks: It never ceases to amaze me that most patients I treat are convinced that hormones cause breast cancer. The wholesale ignorance about the possibilities available in the way of safe treatments with body-identical hormones is largely what prompted me to write this book. Women do not have to lose the color they enjoy in their lives just because they have reached menopause! They are entitled to proper treatment of those unpleasant menopause symptoms! I have had the privilege of guiding many women in this complex phase of their lives. And I cannot count how many times I have heard: “Doctor, I finally have my life back!” There is no doubt whatsoever that average life expectancy has increased enormously in the last decades. This has been accompanied by a number of major social consequences, such as shifts in pension age. Women also stay active for longer in all manner of functions. Unfortunately, the frequently occurring menopause symptoms cause much discomfort and inconvenience for women starting from the age of 40 and 50, and the consequent absenteeism due to sickness causes significant economic damage that should not be underestimated. This book is for women (and even men) in hormonal distress, as well as for anyone who would like to learn more about hormones. Language: English € 24,95
