When your hormones are out of whack you don’t feel good. Symptoms can include mood swings, weight gain, PMS, menstrual cramps, hot flashes, insomnia, or low libido to name a few.
Here are the biggest contributors to hormone imbalance we will address during your functional medicine workup:
- Gut flora imbalances and inflammation
- High cortisol
- Blood sugar dysregulation
- Nutrient imbalances
- Liver detoxification
- Essential fatty acid metabolism
Hormone replacement may be necessary at times (especially during the perimenopause and menopausal years). The safest approach is to first address any underlying causes of imbalance and be sure the body is able to metabolize the hormones properly. Then if hormone replacement is needed, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can certainly be a game changer for many.
