Hormonal imbalances are among the most commonly undiagnosed conditions in the U.S. Millions of men and women experience the daily ups and downs of imbalanced hormones, whether due to reproductive issues, adrenal fatigue, or thyroid disorders like hypothyroidism. Instead of turning to synthetic hormones and prescription drugs that can wreak further havoc on the body, we believe in natural solutions that bring balance to the body’s hormonal system.

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. Our goal is to diagnose and treat male and female hormone imbalance with natural, biologically-friendly treatments.

Did you know?

Hypothyroidism is most likely to occur in women and people over age 50. Adrenal fatigue is caused by prolonged stress and is thought to affect two out of three people to some degree. By the year 2025, an estimated 40 million women will have a hormonal imbalance of some kind.

Did you know?

Women aren’t the only ones who experience age-related hormone changes. Men are also susceptible, usually experiencing a gradual drop in testosterone. This process, often referred to as ‘andropause’, can refer to a drop in androgen levels (including testosterone). Unlike women, who experience dramatic hormone drops due to menopause, men usually experience a gradual hormonal decline over the course of many years.

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. Symptoms of female hormone imbalance include:

  • Loss of bone density
  • Changes in muscle tone
  • Bloat
  • Weight changes
  • Skin changes, such as oily skin or acne
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Difficulty conceiving
  • Changes in hair growth and texture
  • Hot flashes
  • Menstrual changes
  • Mood instability
  • Low sex drive
  • Painful or fibrocystic breast tissue

Male Hormone Imbalance

Males and females have many of the same hormones, only in different ratios. Testosterone is the dominant sex hormone in men, most of which is produced by the testes. However, falling testosterone levels can lead to many of the same symptoms that women experience during menopause. Symptoms of a hormone imbalance in men include:

  • Loss of bone density
  • Changes in muscle tone
  • Weight changes
  • Depression
  • Hot flashes
  • Mood instability
  • Low sex drive

Frequently Asked Questions

What types of hormonal imbalance treatments do you offer?

Treatment is available for each of these conditions, and it doesn’t have to be synthetic or invasive. We believe in natural thyroid hormone replacement, as well as bioidentical hormone therapy for people with estrogen, progesterone, and androgen imbalances. If we believe a patient to have adrenal fatigue, we may suggest adopting stress management techniques, better sleep habits, regular exercise, and a healthy diet to manage the condition and reverse it.

We take a natural approach to treating hormone imbalance. We use advanced technology and modern diagnostic testing to identify hormonal deficiencies and imbalances. Our 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. We also help our 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.

How can you diagnose hormonal imbalances and disorders of hormone-producing glands?

If you have the symptoms of hormonal imbalance, adrenal fatigue or hypothyroidism, we invite you to schedule an appointment with us for an exam and consultation.
