Balance Assessment

Your return to health and wellness begins with a 90-minute consultation with Dr. Horowitz that includes a full health history, diet and lifestyle review and goal setting. From this discussion, appropriate tests will be ordered to evaluate digestive function, nutritional status, detoxification processes, immune and cardiovascular health, and hormone and endocrine balance.
With your test results in hand, Dr. Horowitz will meet with you in a 1 hour follow-up visit to develop a customized program of hormone, nutrition and lifestyle solutions that are designed for you based on your body’s unique needs. This program will include an initial round of recommendations to jumpstart your body’s natural recovery process. Your personal treatment plan may include:
    - Herbal supplements
    - Natural hormone replacement therapy
    - Diet, exercise or other behavior modifications

Within 4-6 weeks of starting your initial treatment, you will check in with Dr. Horowitz to adjust and optimize your progress. At this time Dr. Horowitz can assess where you are and determine what the next steps are. While improvements are typically felt in the first 6-12 weeks, complete biological recovery and a foundation for health and wellness requires both a personal and team commitment and for most patients it can take up to 12 or more months to feel complete balance.
