Hormones are the natural chemicals produced by your body that regulate your metabolism, growth, immunity, and reproduction. While the production of hormones by your body tends to decrease with age, this may lead to a hormonal imbalance that affects your health and well-being in a number of ways.
Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance
Women of all ages can experience hormonal imbalances, especially progesterone or estrogen deficiency. Some symptoms of hormone imbalance can include:
- Anxiety and irritability
- Weight gain
- Hair loss
- Hot flashes and night sweats
- Decreased sex drive
There are many symptoms of hormonal imbalances, including headaches, memory lapses, and the occurrence of adult acne.
Hormone imbalance can be caused by a number of factors aside from aging, including genetics, pregnancy, menopause, medications, thyroid concerns, or autoimmune issues.
Balancing Your Hormones
We provide detailed physical examinations and take a full medical history in order to evaluate your likelihood of experiencing hormone imbalance. We will do a complete blood workup for your hormone levels, as well as evaluate other significant issues that can impact your quality of life. Once we have a clear vision of what’s happening hormonally with your body, we can work together to develop a treatment protocol that restores your hormonal balance with a plan that works for your unique needs.
Hormones that can be out of balance – and that can be helped with hormone treatment – include:
- Thyroid hormones
- Adrenal hormones
A full examination and blood workup can give us a clear guidance to determine the cause of your symptoms and the most effective treatment program.

Every woman’s body is different, and there are plenty of solutions that can work to address your concerns.
