Bio-Identical Hormones & Wellness
Food Allergy Testing, BodyLogicMD, ALCAT Test
Food and/or chemical sensitivities can actually cause symptoms that mimic some of the physical issues that are often connected to aging, such as fatigue, aching joints and gastrointestinal disorders. BodyLogicMD relies upon the ALCAT Test to identify exactly which foods and chemicals are triggering an individual’s problems. A customized nutritional plan is tailored to fit your unique needs to help optimize both your hormone balance and overall health.
ALCAT Worldwide – Preferred Partner of Seduction Cosmetic Center
Cell Science Systems, the ALCAT Worldwide Laboratory, is dedicated to educating and supplying healthcare practitioners and consumers with nutritional products aimed at improving health through nutritional testing and healthy eating.
The ALCAT test is a minimally invasive blood test that accurately and reproducibly measures biological cellular reactivity in whole blood. Unlike standard IgG tests, which rely exclusively on one immune pathway and merely detects exposure, the ALCAT test is the premier test for detecting food allergies, mold and chemical sensitivities/intolerances.
Food sensitivity is proven to activate the immune system, resulting in reduced function over time. It also impacts energy levels and can be linked to common disorders such as fatigue, weight gain, migraine headaches, skin issues and irritable bowel syndrome. Dietary recommendations based upon testing provide the means to minimize the impact of external components on body aging.
How The ALCAT Test Works:
The ALCAT test objectively measures changes in size and number of white blood cells in response to ex vivo challenges with foods, chemicals and other environmental stimuli. Scores are generated by relating the patients’ own blood without test substrate to their tested, reactive blood. Results are designated into four categories – Severe Intolerance, Moderate Intolerance, Mild Intolerance and Acceptable Foods – on a color coded print-out that is accessible online by the prescribing doctor or by hard copy. An individualized rotation diet is included in the results.
The superior expertise and quality of ALCAT Worldwide make them an ideal partner for Seduction Cosmetic Center’s high standards.
Hormone Replacement Therapy
Research has shown that our hormone levels begin to drop with age, usually around age 30 and continue to decline with age until menopause in women and andropause in men occurs in their forties to early fifties. This necessitates for most the need for some kind of hormone replacement and balancing therapy. Women can suffer a variety of symptoms including pain in the breasts, feelings of bloating after eating, unexplained weight gain, insomnia, depression and anxiety, arthritis, loss of calcium and lower bone density, thinnning hair, among other things.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is the use of supplemental doses of hormones that have a chemical structure molecularly identical to the hormones that the human body naturally produces. Bioidentiical Hormone Replacement Therapy treats the symptoms of menopause, peri-menopause and post-menopause. Many of the bioidentical hormones used are made from soybeans and wild yams which are processed chemically to produce unique compounds that are made into identical replicas of the hormones created by the body. The major benefit of this treatment is that doses are individualized proportions in mixtures of products not commercially available in mass-produced products.
Bioidentical hormones differ radically from synthetic hormone replacement drugs in that they are metabolized, stored and converted into other hormones naturally. Bioidentical hormones are natural and organic and are easily accepted by the body while synthetic hormones can often contain impurities due to patent requirements which are chemically quite span and produce unbearable side effects. European medical studies suggest that bioidentical hormones are safer than synthetic versions. Catagories of Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy include the natural estrogens, including Estrone, Estradol, and Estriol, as well as natural Progesterone and natural Androgens.
At Seduction Cosmetic Center we have had the greatest success with an individualized approach to the restoration of a person’s hormone levels to values consistent with improving overall symptoms related to hormone decline. We begin with laboratory tests of hormone levels (a hormone panel), and when warranted, we then prescribe a precise dosage of bioidentical estrogens, progesterone, testosterone, and /or DHEA. The exact mixture is prepared at a registered compounding pharmacy. Every patient is monitored carefully through regular follow-up until optimal hormone levels have been achieved.

Along with hormone replacement therapy our medical team at Seduction Cosmetic Center will discuss a healthy diet, nutritional supplements, and lifestyle changes needed to optimize your health and well-being.
