What Makes Us Different
Enhanced Wellness Living takes a unique, integrative approach to hormone balance that facilitates success.
Kelly Engelmann combines training and expertise in conventional medicine with education and experience in functional regenerative care. This puts more tools in Kelly's toolbox when it comes to therapeutic options that can help and support her patients.
Patients benefit from an integrated approach to health care because there are more options available to help them. If a prescription for hormone replacement therapy in the form of capsules, pellets or creams will help you, you'll receive it. If nutritional supplements will help balance your hormones, you'll receive those, too.
We take advantage of every available option to help patients achieve hormone balance, and sustain that balance long term.
As an experienced nurse practitioner for almost 20 years, Kelly knows the vital role prevention plays in health, and how to help patients negotiate lifestyle behaviors that promote wellness. Having worked within the current health care model for years, she understands medications are sometimes needed to treat disease or health conditions. However, Kelly is also committed to uncovering the root cause of each patient's condition, so balance can be restored.
Unlike others who provide care for hormonal imbalances, we don't take a 'one size fits all' approach.
• We provide all of the education and support you need to succeed.
• We take the time to fully evaluate and understand your condition.
• Your treatment plan will be customized.
• We test and re-test to measure results.
• Our focus is aimed at helping you sustain your achievements long term.
When you work with Enhanced Wellness Living, you'll learn to take charge of your own health. Kelly educates every patient in a practical, in-depth way. You'll learn exactly what is going on with your hormones and your health, why you feel the way you do, and what you can do about it. Kelly also provides the support individuals need to negotiate lifestyle changes through individual and group coaching.
Health care providers often prescribe hormone replacement therapy for patients who have signs of a hormone imbalance. Yet they typically don't look for the root cause of the imbalance, and they don't consider the dynamic interplay between estrogen, testosterone progesterone. They don't consider the interplay with your thyroid hormones or your adrenal hormones. In essence, they target one hormone and expect that somehow, it will be able to do the work of the variety of different hormones interacting throughout the body's systems. It's like asking a single instrument to do the work of an entire symphony.
At Enhanced Wellness Living, the focus is on gaining a comprehensive picture of everything involved in the patient's hormone imbalance. With a complete understanding of what is happening and why, it's possible to achieve full balance—one that takes into account interplay between hormones, and can be maintained long term.
A fuller restoration of balance means patients look and feel better than they do with replacement therapy that only targets one hormone.
The main reason hormone replacement therapy typically provided by practitioners is limited is because it is based on limited testing. As an example, a practitioner may test FSH and estrogen levels through blood testing and prescribe medications based on the results. By contrast, we evaluate every patient for the full range of hormones. We test levels of the sex hormones—estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. We also evaluate thyroid hormones, including antibodies. We test the adrenal hormones, too—cortisol and DHEA.
The comprehensive testing and evaluation we do provides a complete overview of the patient's entire metabolic state.
Based on the results of the full workup and the patient's health history, we fine-tune a therapeutic plan to achieve and sustain hormone balance. Our goal is to help the patient feel better as efficiently as possible and to keep feeling better long term.
If you want to balance your hormones, feel better and look your best long term, we can help.
The profound results we see are the result of a multi-faceted approach to promoting and supporting hormone balance and health. The treatment plan we design for patients typically lasts twelve weeks, and we can accomplish a great deal in that short amount of time. Patients who need additional support can benefit from an extended care plan. We see some patients once a month or every quarter for an additional set number of weeks.
Each patient is unique, and so your treatment plan—whether short term or long term—will be based on your unique needs and preferences.
Enhanced Wellness Living patients have the support of an entire team of experts. You'll work with a certified wellness coach who focuses on the fitness aspect of your plan, and another who focuses on nutrition. You'll receive all of the information, education, products or prescriptions you need to succeed in achieving your health goals.
