Jamie Coughlan, N.D. – Bay Area Bioidentical Doctor
Jamie Coughlan, N.D. is a Pleasanton CA and Bay Area Bioidentical Doctor that specializes in Naturopathic Medicine and Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Naturopathic Medicine is based on the idea that the body has its own innate healing capabilities; however, when the body cannot heal itself on its own, the use of medicines can be implemented to restore health. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is in alignment with Naturopathic Medicine because it involves the use of natural hormones to supplement hormonal deficiencies or to correct imbalances. Dr. Coughlan has used Bioidentical Hormones to help a vast number of women and men overcome the signs and symptoms of hormonal imbalances. Her specialized programs are unique to each individual and can help women and men of all ages to improve their quality of life.
Bioidentical hormone replacement is one such therapy that can naturally help a person restore his or her health. This therapy uses natural substances that are made from soy or yam products to help patients overcome issues that arise from the decline of the endocrine system. Hormones are made in the endocrine system and work to control thousands of bodily functions, and when they decline health issues can result.
As a Naturopathic physician that specializes in East Bay and Pleasanton, California Bioidentical Doctor, Jamie Coughlan, N.D. can help patients to naturally regain health and balance.
Correct hormone balance is integral to feeling well. Dr. Coughlan specializes in optimizing hormones including male and female sex hormones, thyroid, and adrenal hormones.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy utilizes hormones that are bioidentical to what your body produces. Unlike synthetic hormones that are mostly derived from pregnant mares’ urine, bioidentical hormones are derived from plants—such as the wild yam or soybean plant—and are functionally identical to human hormones.
Our center offers individualized testing including 24 hour urine, saliva, and blood testing to accurately assess each individual’s imbalances. Based upon an individual’s imbalances, treatment options may include bio-identical hormone replacement, clinical nutrition, and botanical medicine. Bioidentical hormone replacement uses hormones that mimic the body’s own natural hormones to help restore and re-balance deficiencies and optimize the body’s use of more protective forms of hormones.
Dr. Jamie Coughlan, N.D. offers a warm and comforting environment utilizing many different practitioners and forms of healing to treat the whole person and optimize health.
