“When your hormones are happy, healthy and balanced, you will feel your best self!” Dr Terry
Our bodies are remarkable creations and in an optimum state the body seeks to be in equilibrium. There is a fine interplay of hormones which control different systems within the body and this interplay can be affected by a myriad of factors that alter the balance. Finding ways to respect and balance these hormones leads to a better, healthier and happier mind and body.
My approach to Hormonal Balance focuses on finding the root cause of the imbalance, restoring your rhythm back to it’s optimum levels and supporting it’s maintenance so you can get your mojo back in this modern day.

All treatments require initial consultation to asses suitability. There is an initial consultation fee which is non-refundable.
What is Hormonal Balance?
“When your hormones are happy, healthy and balanced, you feel your best self again!”
Hormones are essentially chemical messengers which are released into the bloodstream to reach target organs on which they have an effect. Different hormones have different effects –for example adrenalin will control the fight or flight mechanism for protection, whereas oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone affect fertility and sexual responses. An excess or depletion of any of the hormones can cause different problems within the body systems and may lead to disease.
Hormones are produced in endocrine glands, such as the adrenal gland, released into the blood system to circulate and then are broken down and excreted from the body. An interruption of this system at any point can lead to an impaired hormonal effect or a depletion or overload of hormone. This has an impact on the body and it is important to identify levels of hormones and then to work out where the system is impaired and why.

Dr. Terry has been instrumental in helping me turn my life around for the better. When I came to see Dr. Terry for the first time, I was feeling the lowest I have felt in my life. I was a complete mess emotionally and physically.
I felt that Dr. Terry genuinely cared and empathised with what I was going through and even shared her own experiences that she had struggled with in her past. She developed a customised plan for me to follow. It attacked all my problem areas: leaky gut, adrenal function, thyroid, candida overgrowth. She was also brutally honest, telling me that if I did not sort out my health issues, chances were that bigger, more serious problems lay ahead. I really needed that wake up call to motivate me to change.
Three months on and I feel like a new person. I am getting stronger, feeling lighter and better, more optimistic and more knowledgeable about what my body needs.
Dr. Terry is incredibly open minded and often says that she is constantly learning from her patients and from reading about new developments. That is so refreshing compared to my experience with other doctors who seem more rigid in their views . I also especially like that Dr. Terry bases her diagnoses not only on clinical tests but pays equal importance on how one feels. In fact, that was her starting point with me. This is completely lacking in mainstream medical practice, especially when it comes to understanding issues relating to women/hormones as they rely solely on clinical results.
I know I have a long road to recovery ahead, but I feel secure in the knowledge that with Dr. Terry’s guidance, I am going to get there stronger and happier. Another thing, my appointments with Dr. Terry always end with a genuine, friendly, feel good, hug. Which doctor does that!

Many women are in hormonal imbalance because
- Stress within modern lifestyles
- Toxic environments where for example food and drinking water is contaminated with hormones
- Western diets alter hormone balance
- Products that we use on the skin and in homes contain hormone altering chemicals
The common symptoms of hormonal imbalance are
- Adrenal Fatigue
- Stubborn weight gain
- Endometriosis / heavy painful periods
- Premature Aging
- Breast cyst and cancer
- Sugar cravings
The Hormonal Balance Program focuses on finding the root cause of the imbalance, restoring your rhythm back to it’s optimum levels and supporting it’s maintenance so you can get your mojo back in this modern day.
In the first stages of hormonal balance, a detailed image of hormone level and balance is created through detailed consultation, examination and diagnostic analysis. Only then can effective treatment be decided on. This may involve lifestyle adjustments, nutritional optimisation, supplementation, targeted exercise or stress management techniques. You may require Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy to re-establish an effective hormonal balance within the body and relieve symptoms of hormonal imbalance.
I believe the success of the program requires a partnership between doctor and patient to work together to achieve the desired outcome of balance and harmony within the body.
Remember that nothing can happen over night – hormone balance takes time and patients should be prepared to commit to working together for 6-12 months in order to achieve the optimum outcome.
