What are the symptoms of a hormonal imbalance?

There are many possible symptoms of a hormonal imbalance. In women, these signs may include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Unusual weight gain
  • Increase in fat and decrease in muscle
  • Chronic exhaustion
  • Mood swings
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Brain fog
  • Low energy levels

In men, the symptoms of low hormones include:

  • Chronic exhaustion
  • Insomnia
  • Lack of libido
  • Hair loss
  • A decrease in sexual performance
  • A decrease in muscle mass/increase in body fat
  • Depression or anxiety

Most men and women who suffer from a hormonal imbalance experience several or possibly many of these symptoms at one time.

Why does a hormonal imbalance happen?

A hormonal imbalance is often part of the natural aging process for both men and women. For women, the hormonal imbalance typically starts around the time of menopause, and it may continue for years afterward without treatment. For men, a hormonal imbalance may begin to develop late in their 20s, and then continue throughout adulthood and into the senior years without treatment.

Sometimes, a hormonal imbalance is connected to thyroid hormones T3 and T4, as well. No matter why the hormone imbalance happens, your Wellness 1st Integrative Medical Center physician will do complete testing to find its origin so you can begin natural balancing.

What is the functional medicine approach to hormonal imbalance?

Functional medicine looks at your whole-body health and wellness when dealing with problems. Comprehensive testing can reveal the exact location of your imbalances, and this gives your doctor a type of roadmap to follow for your wellness.

With functional medicine, the goal is to correct problems in the organs that make your hormones so they produce optimal levels again naturally. Simply adding supplements or shots without doing natural balancing means you’ll have to rely on the supplements or shots for potentially the rest of your life.

But, if you naturally balance your hormones, you may not need any supplementation at all. In most cases, your body already makes everything you need. It’s just a matter of getting your organs to release the right amount of hormones through specific health changes, especially involving your diet.

In some cases, patients do need extra hormone support. In that case, your doctor can administer bioidentical hormone shots that include plant-derived duplicates of your natural hormones.
