JOIN PMCM’s FREE Workshop on Hormones and Health
According to a recent article on Medline Plus, a trusted health information web site, Hormones are your body’s chemical messengers. They travel in your bloodstream to tissues or organs. They work slowly, over time, and affect many different processes, including:
•Growth and development
•Metabolism and how your body gets energy from the foods you eat
Is it any wonder that hormonal imbalances can affect everything from your sex life to your metabolism, and even your mood and how you enjoy your life?
Learn new approaches to managing your symptoms caused by hormonal imbalances, some commonly held myths and new tools to help your condition. This FREE Hormones and Health Workshop will be led by Judy Lane, NP, PMCM’s Director of Women’s Health, Dr. Elson Haas, Dr. Richard Shames, a noted Thyroid specialist with his practice at Preventive Medical Center of Marin (PMCM), and his daughter, Georjana Shames, an acupuncturist who focuses on hormonal issues.

When & Where
Preventive Medical Center of Marin (PMCM)
PMCM uses a wide variety of safe and effective therapies to both treat health problems and balance the body. We also provide the latest in innovative health assessments beyond typical Western Medicine lab tests, which we also do thoroughly. These newer tests include vitamin and mineral assays for nutritional adequacy; food allergy tests for both immune (antibody) and cell reactions as well as intradermal (skin) allergy testing; saliva and blood measurement of hormone levels; and other tests to look more deeply for problems as well as view the energetic and ionic balance in the body.
PMCM offers a multidisciplinary spectrum of healthcare services and products. Patients and practitioners work together to design choices and create options for the treatment of health problems. This differs markedly from “conventional” approaches (modern Western), which may support one way of thinking and one system of medicine, in contrast to employing traditional” healing systems such as nutrition, body therapy and herbal and homeopathic medicines. PMCM is responsive to the desires and interests of its patients for integrative and preventive therapeutic alternatives, and for practitioners who understand both allopathic and natural medical approaches.
PMCM is also the only "alternative" or "integrated" center in the North Bay Area that works within the insurance system, utilizing a wide variety of organizations and health plans, including Aetna, Blue Shield and Blue Cross, United Health Care, Medicare and others.
