Grace Integrative Medicine Offers New Service

Grace Integrative Medicine, in Easley, now offers a functional medicine approach to men’s and women’s hormone-related concerns, including those for thyroid, adrenal and sex hormones. Many individuals are looking for alternatives to hormone replacement, whether for thyroid, testosterone and/or estrogen/progesterone. This approach starts with nutrition (including nutraceuticals) and lifestyle recommendations to support the body in its natural processes rather than using hormone replacement or bio-identical hormones as the first option for treatment. Starting with nutrition and lifestyle can improve multiple aspects of health—

not just what we traditionally think of as hormone issues—so this is a holistic approach to whole-person health, based in personalized assessment and care for the individual.

Dr. Melissa C. Overman, owner of Grace Integrative Medicine, is an osteopathic physician with a heart for helping individuals find their best health through the integration of conventional medicine and traditional healing modalities.
