You may have read that DHEA helps with egg quality and wondering if you should be taking it. 

I do not want to be a nagging parent and keep saying the same thing over and over...but DHEA is actually a hormone and is not appropriate for everyone. 

So we’re going to talk about what DHEA is, how it became so popular, how it works, and who should take it.

Today, I’m bringing you an interview with my good friend Andrea Jang.  Andrea is a fertility acupuncturist in the San Francisco bay area.  Her clinic was the first clinic other than my own, to embrace the Practically Fertile Methodology.  We’ve been working closely together for two years.

What Andrea has added to her practice recently is functional medicine. According to Andrea, Conventional lab ranges are inaccurate, bell curves are used, and only limited tests are ordered. Unlike conventional lab tests, functional lab values are more sensitive to reveal problems. 

Andrea wants to offer the Comprehensive Thyroid Evaluation for only $147 (Regularly $350). And this test will be Available to the first 10 people who contact her.  

Offer includes:

Complete thyroid panel including 9 key thyroid tests plus a one on one Functional Medicine consultation to review the test results.

  • T3 Uptake 
  • T3, Free (FT3) 
  • T3, Reverse, LC/MS/MS  
  • T3, Total 
  • T4 (Thyroxine), Total 
  • T4, Free (FT4) 
  • Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies 
  • Thyroglobulin Antibodies 
  • TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) 

Most tests run only 1-2 of these markers and miss the key underlying imbalances. This offer also includes a 25% discount on a supplement purchase through Fullscript and a Thyroid Health Education card. 

(Lab testing not available for residents in NY, NJ, RI. )

Can I just tell you that the supplement industry is a multi-billion dollar industry!  One of the things that bugs me is the misconception that more is better.

It’s common to see supplements especially multi vitamins that are overloaded with like 500% of something or 3500% of something.  And that, besides possibly throwing money away, more importantly it can be dangerous.
