ICIM’s EndocrineEcosystem: Balanced Hormones and Reduced Toxicity for Patient Health and Happiness.
Hormones are a fundamental part of physiology. A comprehensive understanding of health requires a thorough grasp on the endocrine system and the hormones that it uses to communicate. As our understanding of the physiology of hormones progresses, we are realizing that biochemical individuality requires a variety of approaches to restore physiological balance; a single approach will not work for all patients.
For this reason, we must explore a variety of methods for restoring endocrine health. There are a multitude of possible approaches to quantify hormones and their effects, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. In identifying appropriate treatment methods, we must take into consideration the myriad influences on our endocrine system: from genetics and epigenetics to stresses on the system including direct assaults on our hormonal response by toxicants and pollutants.
