At Integrated Nutrition of Mount Kisco, PLLC and Blood Logic, Inc. we work in close partnership with you towards developing your natural healing plan. What you do not need is a generalized “one size fits all approach.”  Our approach for clarifying your health issues, finding hidden causes of your health problem(s) and developing natural solutions has been woven into our carefully designed longevity approach that we call The Blood Detective’s Longevity Plan. We believe that developing a Metabolic Map of your entire body by performing specialized health tests (e.g., biomarkers) is a truly holistic way of viewing, appreciating and managing your health concerns. As a concierge practice, we make ourselves truly available to you.  As a paperless office we are concerned about the world environment as it affects our “internal environment”…namely, your health.

Natural Hormone Balancing

What are bioidentical hormones? Bioidentical hormones are hormones that are produced in a laboratory to resemble closely natural hormones found in the body. Common courses of natural hormones are soy and wild yam; but these foods need to be biochemically altered in the laboratory so that they are absorbable by the person. Bioidentical hormones are therefore not natural.

What are bioidentical hormone side effects?The side effects may range from mood changes, to fluid accumulation, acne, skin changes and others.

Can a person increase their bodies own production of natural hormones? Yes, rigorous exercise for example will dramatically increase the adrenal hormone DHEA an testosterone. Growth hormone, as well as many other hormones, can be increase and rebalanced by careful dietary and nutritional supplements. It’s always best to fix your hormones if possible rather than consuming “natural'-synthetic” hormones because they are not made in your body.

How you age is up to you, mostly.

Age right with natural hormones

Success Story!

I first went to see Dr. Wald when life stressors left me with anxiety, depression, insomnia, appetite loss, exhaustion, hand tremors and muscle cramping.  At the time, I had a history of food sensitivities and thyroid dysfunction, including a diagnosis of Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. These problems were making it hard to function in my daily life.  Through targeted nutritional treatment and other therapies, I now sleep well, my appetite returned, my energy is up and the anxiety and depression markedly reduced!  - Many thanks, Dr. Wald!

Bio-identical Hormone Health Plan


Dr. Wald provides a comprehensive and individualized approach using bio-identical hormones

  • Bio-identical hormones are identical to those made by the body and are synthetic (made in a laboratory). It is a misconception that plants contain “natural” hormones; plants DO contain hormone-like chemicals that are often used as “starting chemicals” when bio-identical hormones are produced in the laboratory. The human body is unable to convert hormone-like chemicals in plants such as soy and wild yams to active hormones. Hormones used by conventional OBs, internist and endocrinologists are also synthetic, but are very different structurally from those made endogenously (in the body). Bio-identical hormones are easily recognized by the body and are thought to carry far less risk of hormone related cancers compared to synthetic, non-bio-identical hormones.

  • Our office utilizes several important tests for determining the best balance of bio-identical hormones required. These important tests include:

  • Certain blood hormone levels

  • Specific saliva hormone measurements

  • Urine measurements of estrogen metabolites

  • Non-hormone nutritional and other laboratory tests that evaluate various body processes that determine directly or indirectly hormone need, use and overall balance.

It is the combination of these tests that give the most comprehensive assessment of hormone levels, relative use by body tissues in need and potential cancer risk (Yes! Even natural hormones may increase cancer risk in a given individual).
