Hormonal balance is vital to a healthy mind and body, but can be disrupted in many ways. Hormone fluctuations occur naturally, such as in puberty, menopause and peri-menopause. Hormone imbalance may also be caused by toxins or an unbalanced lifestyle. Understanding the causes of hormone imbalance empowers us to prevent them, and at the same time, feel better and think better.
Acupuncture and herbal medicine are two of the safest and side effect free ways to help your body naturally balance its hormones.
Hormones are your body’s chemical messengers. They travel in your bloodstream to tissues and organs. They work slowly, over time, and affect many different processes, including metabolism, sexual function, reproduction, mood and much more.
Hormonal imbalances occur when there is too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream. Because of their essential role in the body, even small hormonal imbalances can cause side effects throughout the body.
Hormones — such as estrogen, testosterone, adrenaline and insulin — are extremely important chemical messengers that affect many aspects of your overall health. Hormones are secreted by various glands and organs, including your thyroid, adrenals, pituitary, ovaries, testicles and pancreas. The entire endocrine system works together to control the level of hormones circulating throughout your body, and if one or more is even slightly imbalanced, it can cause widespread, major health problems.
Some of the symptoms that hormone imbalances may cause are:
Change in libido
Menstrual cycle problems
Hair loss and hair thinning
Change in heart rate and/or blood pressure
Sensitivity to cold and change in body temperature
All of these symptoms can be helped with acupuncture and herbal medicine.
You are you in the right place if you are looking for a natural way to balance hormones and find relief from things like PMS, PCOS, endometriosis, infertility, peri-menopause and menopause.
