The most important balance we maintain in our life is that of our own functioning body: how it balances with others, its surroundings, and within itself. This changing or dynamic balance is subject to alterations every minute of every day. Only by maintaining equilibrium can we be the healthiest in both mind and body.
Symptoms of hormone imbalance such as anxiety, insomnia, low libido, headaches, acne, fatigue and weight gain have plagued men and women for centuries. In order for the body to have a healthy hormone balance the foundations of blood sugar, digestion, nutrient deficiencies, and hydration must all be addressed. The body's delicate balance of hormones is very sensitive to any changes to these foundations. It is common to have symptoms that signal hormonal imbalance, but are truly a sign disruption to the foundations. If one is hoping to balance hormones, they must first balance the foundations.
Have you experienced any of the following recently?
Having a hard time falling asleep or staying asleep
Decreased immune system (getting sick more often, recurrent sinus/allergy issues)
Hot flashes or night sweats
Sugar, salt, or carbohydrate cravings
Anxiety, depression, irritability or mood swings
Hair loss or odd hair growth patterns
Memory loss or poor word recall
If any of these symptoms sound like you, then we can help! The endocrine system is all about hormones and hormones are all about communication. Dysfunctions in the endocrine system can cause persistent symptoms, even in the presence of perfect female or male sex hormone balance. Micronutrient deficiencies, blood sugar dysregulation, disruption of sleep, and the abnormal production of neurotransmitters and hormones must all be considered to achieve balanced wellness.
In some cases, there may be a need to utilize hormone therapy in the form of a hormonal medication, but in many cases simply supporting the foundations will allow the body to use its own innate intelligence to bring those hormones back into balance. Because of this, a complete wellness evaluation with additional testing and therapies is required whenever hormonal imbalances are suspected.
