If you are experiencing hair loss, come to Medicine With a Heart for treatment. Serving Aurora, Lisle, Downer’s Grove, Hinsdale and the entire Chicago area.
For both women and men, hair loss is disappointing and even upsetting. Many people come to Medicine With a Heart because they are experiencing thinning hair / hair loss. In recent years, many strides have been made in preventing hair loss and baldness. New technologies and discoveries have resulted in a variety of potential solutions, depending on the cause and the type of hair loss that the patient is experiencing.
Some experience patchy hair loss, just in certain spots, while others experience an overall thinning of their hair. Dr. Michelle Schultz will examine and identify the cause of your hair condition and recommend a personalized plan to resolve the condition. We cannot guarantee results for everyone, however, the majority of our clients experience improvements and are highly satisfied with our solutions. One of the solutions that we implement is balancing the Thyroid system. Thyroid and adrenals are discussed on that page of our website. They play a very important role in keeping the body healthy and balanced and so contribute to hair loss in some situations.
Dr. Schultz has very specialized training in treating hair loss including male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness. Other things that can cause hair loss thinning include: anemia, Hashimoto’s disease, which is a condition of the thyroid, menopause, thyroid cancer, though testosterone, stress, scalp psoriasis, vitamin and calcium deficiencies, and other causes.
So many things can cause hair loss that a doctor has to be a bit of a detective to uncover the cause. Medicines you take, allergies you have, and what you need are things that you can expect to be asked if you come in for her loss treatment. You will also receive an examination of your scalp and hair and hair samples will most likely be taken. Depending on the diagnosis, or treatment could include use of a laser/ infrared light, change in diet, taking certain supplements, or hormone therapy.
Dr. Schultz is happy to answer all of your questions about hair loss treatments and therapy, and is highly knowledgeable in this area. She enjoys informing and educating her clients and will help you to fully understand your treatment and white is the best approach for you.
“Dr. Schultz is extremely thorough with diagnosis and treatment while her testing is extensive. She has a wealth of knowledge about hormone replacement and areas relating to this. Her bedside manner is refreshing and she never rushes you out of her office. If you have ever considered looking into hormone replacement you would be well advised to start with Dr. Schultz first”

“Within one week of starting HRT it felt like a thick, heavy fog was lifted from my life. I was able to get a full, restful night of sleep. With the addition of testosterone pellets my energy level, zest for life and libido went from good to fantastic!!! I feel balanced , grounded and very happy most days!”
“Since I became a patient of Dr. Schultz and FINALLY found someone who could balance my hormones, I HAVE FELT BETTER THAN I DID WHEN I WAS 20!!! I swear this is true!! Because of her diagnostic genius, the level of bioidentical hormones she has fine-tuned to my individual needs have changed my life and restored me to be the best “me” I can be! Dr. Schultz is not just a doctor, I call her my HEALER 🙂 She LISTENS to me, she educates me and encourages me to take good care of myself and to make good choices, and then she allows me to make my own decisions and choices, because she respects that I am an intelligent adult and the expert on my own 58-year-old body. She treats me as a peer and her PARTNER in maintaining my own wellness, and she respects and cares about me! Our appointments start and end with a hug, and I leave her office feeling uplifted, understood, inspired, strengthened and healed in body mind and spirit. She is very holistic, understanding that we are not just a cluster of symptoms, but that in order to have healthy bodies we must also address our issues, belief systems, and thoughts. Dr. Schultz is a wise and wonderful teacher and I am blessed to have her on my path:) And her staff is awesome too!”
