Hormone Balancing Q & A

What is hormonal imbalance?

Hormones are the chemical messengers of your body. They are primarily produced in the endocrine glands, which includes your adrenal gland and thyroid. These hormones travel throughout the body and regulate many major processes of your body, including metabolism and reproduction.

An imbalance in the production of hormones can affect every major system of your body and, in turn, cause symptoms that may easily be misdiagnosed or misunderstood. Evaluating for hormonal imbalance can often unlock the root causes of many complex health conditions, such as weight gain, acne, anxiety, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and infertility.

What are symptoms of hormone imbalance?

Because hormones are responsible for so many processes of the body, imbalance can create a wide range of symptoms, including:

  • Weight gain or inability to lose weight
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Mood swings
  • Irregular periods
  • Sexual dysfunction or low libido
  • Sleep problems
  • Brain fog or inability to focus
  • Hot flashes
  • Chronic pain
  • Gastrointestinal problems
  • Infertility
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Hair loss or unwanted hair
  • Fatigue and exhaustion
  • Headaches

Your specific set of symptoms depends on which hormones are out of balance and how your body responds to that imbalance.

What causes hormonal imbalance?

There are a number of possible causes of hormone imbalance. These cause may include:

  • Thyroid or adrenal gland damage
  • Nutritional imbalance or deficiencies
  • Toxins
  • Chronic or acute stress
  • Synthetic or prolonged hormone use
  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Medications

As part of your initial consultation, you will have a comprehensive health assessment to help get a clear picture of the underlying causes of your symptoms. Once these underlying causes are understood, your treatment plan can be tailored to your specific needs.
