The endocrine system is a dynamic system within our body which governs the production and function of our hormones. Its is a very delicate, interwoven network which can easily be disrupted by a variety of insults common to our modern day society (eg. sleep problems, toxic exposure, medications, stress, etc). Hormone disruptions can cause an array of mental, emotional and physical problems, which are difficult to treat unless the hormonal component is addressed. Dr. Herman provides a comprehensive, holistic approach to helping patients finding hormonal harmony.

"I have been cold since I was 12 years old. I have been tested and treated for 30 years now.  I have had to quit skiing, wear gigantic mittens in temperatures of 50 degrees or colder and wear several layers of clothes (looking like I should be in the North Pole).

Dr. Kai heard me, she ordered tests to check all my symptoms, she got the results, and treated me. Now I am able to once again enjoy walking the dog and being outside in the cold.

Dr. Kai, Thank you for hearing me and helping me!"
