Hormonal imbalances affect both women and men. Common hormones out of balance include: thyroid, adrenal, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and dhea. Women are more susceptible to imbalances at puberty and especially mid-life. For women, estrogen and progesterone imbalances can be seen with symptoms of insomnia, weight gain, mood issues, memory loss, hot flashes, and irregular bleeding. Through lifestyle changes such as optimal nutrients, supplemental support, herbs, and stress reduction, most hormonal imbalances can be restored. Imbalances can be assessed through saliva, and blood or urine testing. A naturopathic support plan can be developed based on results.
