Hormones have major impacts on our well being. We have hormone receptors on most of our cells in our body, which means our hormones affect many of our organ systems. Hormone balancing is important for men and women of all ages. Labs can often look ‘normal’ but some are much more sensitive to hormonal fluctuation.
This can look like:
PMS, PMDD, menopause, anxiety, depression, fatigue, cravings, libido changes, weight gain, anger, irritability, insomnia, sensitivity to temperature changes, cramping, abdominal discomfort, brain fog, lack of menses, acne, irregular periods, heavy menses, vaginal dryness, vaginal itching
Menopause, PMS, PMDD, endometriosis, premature ovarian failure, infertility, amenorrhea, PCOS, uterine fibroids, female sexual dysfunction, frequent UTI, bacterial vaginosis, yeast infections, amenorrhea (missing cycles), oligomenorrhea (infrequent cycles), menorrhagia (heavy or long periods), menometrorrhagia (heavy and irregular cycles)
Taking the time to address the whole person through functional medicine
Lab testing (can be salivary, blood or urine)
Herbal medicine, nutrient supplementation (like amino acids, vitamins, minerals), diet, and lifestyle modifications
