In this comprehensive guide to treating gut imbalances, I cover the little-known causes and reasons most gut issues go ignored, and how they can create hormonal imbalances causing as wide range of symptoms.
As scary as this sounds, it is unfortunately true that most doctors (and even some specialist) don’t know how to treat these imbalances confidently.
Doctor’s all over the world are telling patients suffering from from symptoms like fatigue, sudden weight gain and mood issues that “your labs are normal” or “it's just a matter of aging.”
They are unsure how to help patients suffering with debilitating GI complaints who also suspect they have hormonal imbalances... and they go hand in hand.
WHAT I WISH EVERYONE KNEW ABOUT GUT/HORMONAL IMBALANCES
WHY common medical advice often fails to address the root cause of health imbalances caused but the gut/hormone connection (and why most PCPs and even OBGYNs are ill-prepared to address your concerns)
HOW to recognize common signs & symptoms of hormonal and gut imbalances
HOW to find and choose the right healthcare provider to treat both and find out if gut issues are trashing your hormones
WHICH hormone testing is best for identifying imbalances and developing personalized treatment plans
WHAT you need to know about testing and improving your gut health even if you don't have obvious GI symptoms

My experience with Dr. Mark was outstanding. I was referred to Dr. Mark by my ENT and I knew immediately that I was in good hands. He really took the time to listen to my concerns and he answered all of my questions. I was very impressed by the amount of time and the personal attention that I received. I did not feel rushed nor did he make me feel bad for asking so many questions. He was so kind and patient with me and I really appreciate the follow-up that I received from him and his office.

Dr. Mark has really helped me to have a happy gut at last! I highly recommend his services. This has also been the best practice I've been to where you are always greeted with a smile from all members of the staff. At the front desk is Mimi. She is very pleasant and helpful. Dr. Mark has such a positive spirit about him. I appreciate all the knowledge he's shared with me on how to make smarter food choices for my body's benefit. Many thanks, Dr. Mark!

I am truly impressed with Dr. Mark's professionalism and knowledge. He is so well-versed in functional medicine and was able to explain things to me in very simple and understandable terms. He takes the time to get to know your issue and get to the root cause of your problems. Dr. Mark also has a fantastic bedside manner. He and his wife Dr. Frances make an excellent team. I highly recommend them.
