Hormone imbalance is a common condition and is something we treat frequently. Hormones that we investigate include testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, cortisol, human growth hormone, and thyroid hormones.
If any one hormone is out of balance it will cause an imbalance in the other hormones, exacerbating the issue and often causing additional symptoms.
Hormones in general regulate a multitude of functions in the body – from metabolism to mental functioning. Because multiple hormones control the same functions like energy level, bone density, and menstrual cycles, testing is always necessary before treatment begins.
ALETRIS naturopathic physicians thoroughly investigate each case of hormone imbalance to determine the best treatments for each patient. Natural hormone therapy, supplementation, botanical tinctures and acupuncture are some of the treatment options available to patients with hormone imbalance.
