Medicine With a Heart helps diagnose and treat insomnia and other sleep disorders. Serving Aurora, Lisle, Downer’s Grove, Hinsdale and the entire Chicago area.
It’s normal to have trouble sleeping once in a while. The foods we eat and our stress level at the time can affect our ideal sleep pattern. But for those who regularly experience lack of sleep or sleep disruption there could be a physical reason. Dr. Michelle Schultz will delve into all the possible causes of your sleep condition and identify root causes. Also consider that sleep can be a barometer for your overall health – so she will also examine your overall wellness and lifestyle, as a consideration in improving your sleep.
One of the important factors to be looked at when someone is experiencing problems sleeping is HORMONE LEVELS. As hormones fluctuate, stress ensues, and your body is put off balance. As a highly skilled and knowledgeable hormone therapy practitioner, Dr. Schultz may include Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy as part of your treatment for your sleep disorder. BHRT uses your own natural hormones so it is safe and effective.
Of course, your stage in life affects your sleep. If you are in menopause (and men, too, can have menopausal symptoms), for example, this will affect your sleep. Testosterone levels may need to be checked. Also, your diet and nutrition absolutely affect your sleep. Dr. Schultz has been practicing alternative medicine since 1998 and utilizes an integrated approach to diagnosing and treating your sleep condition. She utilizes the latest advances and technology to improve the overall health of her patients. You may receive a recommendation to follow a certain diet and take certain nutraceutical grade supplements as part of your therapy.
Sleep conditions include:
If you have symptoms such as being tired when you shouldn’t be, being irritable, quick to get upset or emotional, feeling groggy and lethargic, having difficulty concentrating, needing a lot of caffeine throughout the day, then you may have a sleep disorder.

“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!”
