Hormones are a major foundation of the cellular functions inside the body. Though unseen and often overlooked, hormones must maintain a careful balance to avoid causing health complications. Even the slightest disruption in hormone balance can have major consequences in the body. Though this can happen to anyone at any age, hormone changes are especially common with age. My goal is to diagnose and treat female hormone imbalance with natural and biologically-friendly treatments.
What are the symptoms of female hormone imbalance?
There are many hormones produced by the ovaries within the female body. Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are the major sex hormones that help regulate menstruation and fertility. However, there are many other hormones produced in glands throughout the body, all of which can become imbalanced at any stage of life.
If you suffer from one or more of the following, you might be dealing with hormonal imbalance:
- Loss of bone density
- Changes in muscle tone
- Weight changes
- Skin changes, such as oily skin or acne
- Difficulty conceiving
- Changes in hair growth and texture
- Hot flashes
- Menstrual changes
- Mood instability
- Low sex drive
- Painful or fibrocystic breast tissue
Alternative Treatments for female hormone imbalance
I take a natural approach to treating hormone imbalance and use advanced technology and modern diagnostic testing to identify hormonal deficiencies and imbalances. My goal is to use natural, non-invasive methods of balancing the body’s hormones and supplementing deficiencies. Often, this includes the use of bio-identical hormones, which are identical to the natural hormones produced by the body. I also help my patients use nutrition, detoxification, stress reduction, and other lifestyle changes to keep hormones as naturally balanced as possible. Our patients continue to visit us for periodic evaluations to monitor hormone levels and make treatment changes as necessary.
