When your hormones are out of whack you don’t feel good. Symptoms can include mood swings, weight gain, PMS, menstrual cramps, hot flashes, or low libido to name a few.
Why does this happen? Hormones don’t go out of balance for no reason. The reason is that there is a deeper underlying issue that needs to be addressed.
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 is common practice in both the conventional and alternative medicine world today. While this may be necessary at times, it is irresponsible and even dangerous to simply replace hormones without addressing the underlying causes of hormone imbalance.
