Dr Steve BittorfEvery day, more than 3,500 women enter into menopause, but it doesn’t happen overnight. Symptoms can begin up to 15 years earlier. Hypogonadism, a failure of the testes in men or the ovaries in women also takes place over a span of time. These changes that happen as we age are directly related to how we feel and how we function on a daily basis and can lead to hormone havoc!

Hormones are the unseen messengers that our bodies dispatch by way of the bloodstream to deliver instructions which regulate our organs and tissues. Among the many types of hormones that impact our state of health, estrogen and testosterone are the two that have major roles, especially as we age.

On Tuesday, June 7 Dr. Steve Bittorf, a Green Bay physician with a PhD in biochemistry will speak to the public at the Center for Optimal Health, 242 Michigan St., Suite 202 in Sturgeon Bay. His presentation entitled “Are You Living up to Your Full Potential?” will explore the concepts of hormone measurement and balancing, a concern that he has devoted a great deal of attention to over more than 20 years in practice.

Testosterone production is vital to both women and men and it typically decreases over the years. It’s often called the Brain Hormone since it gives a person the ability to be FULLY present and productive each and every day. Studies show that testosterone deficiency is directly related to Alzheimer’s Disease. Testosterone is also the bone builder.

Estrogen is directly related to more than 400 different body functions including not only the regulation of hot flashes, but also maintaining the levels of two key neurotransmitters, serotonin and dopamine which in turn affect our sleep patterns and our capacity to focus and stay on task.

Learning about the effects of hormonal imbalance and the most effective ways to correct the many problems caused by this condition will be the focus of Dr. Steve’s free talk on June 7 at 5:30 pm.

Dr. Steve Bittorf is the founder of Green Bay Integrative Health  which offers wellness and integrative medicine services for individuals. In 1994 he obtained a Ph.D. in biochemistry and an M.D. at the University of Wisconsin-Medical School, and he subsequently trained at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, where he completed internal medicine residency and fellowships in pulmonary and critical care medicine.

“My approach to medicine is based on a model of health and wellness,” explains Dr. Steve. While typical physicians treat illness, he prefers Integrative medicine, a system of wellbeing that, “favors the use of alternative, customized treatment plans which incorporate mind, body and spirit.”
