Breast cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death in women, according to the CDC. And we want to help you AVOID it, not just deal with it when it happens.
Estrogen-sensitive cancers are caused by multiple factors, both genetic and environmental. Our clinic can help you manage these environmental factors, which include blood sugar balance, insulin and metabolic syndrome, diet, bowel health, sleep patterns, and stress.
Since it’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are offering a discounted estrogen-balance assessment to you during the month of October. Here’s a quick rundown from Dr. Zac on why estrogen is so influential in your body, and to your health:
Here's a special message from Dr. Zachary Ryan Watkins explaining why our estrogen kit is so useful to identify and combat early indicators of breast cancer. Remember, we're running a special discount through October so you can understand how your body metabolizes estrogen, thus equipping you to make more informed decisions about your health!

We especially want to encourage women ages 40 and older to take this valuable assessment in addition to routine breast cancer screenings as the risk for cancer increases with age. Additionally, breast cancer survivors will want to assess hormone levels to prevent recurrence!
Besides the effect on breast cancer development, estrogen imbalances can also indicate other conditions, including:
-polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
-premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
So while our focus is on raising awareness in our patients about breast cancer symptoms and prevention, the results of an estrogen-balance assessment can be used to identify a multitude of other conditions that have a huge effect on your health.
