Having too much or too little of one or more hormones causes a hormonal imbalance.
Many medical conditions are caused by hormonal imbalances.
Many conditions that involve hormone imbalance or irregularity can be successfully taken care of with the correct treatment.
Hormones regulate most major body functions and processes. Throughout your day hormone levels naturally rise and fall. Hormones regulate our metabolism, appetite, heart rate, sleep cycle, growth, development, mood and stress levels, body temperature, reproductive cycle, and sexual functions. Hormone imbalance can occur in both men, and women. When there is too much or too little of a certain hormone, there is hormonal imbalance which can cause a variety of symptoms.
The most common symptoms of hormonal imbalance are unexplained weight change, sleeping issues, excessive sweating or hot flashes, headaches, very dry skin or rashes, irritability, anxiety, fatigue, increased thirst, changes in blood pressure, heart rate and blood sugar, decreased sex drive and infertility. There are various explanations as to why hormonal imbalances occur in both men and women. Sometimes, imbalances are due to our natural growth process. Other times, imbalances are represented by different medical conditions, medications, stress, diabetes, obesity, and poor diet. By balancing the body with proper treatments, symptoms of hormone imbalances can be alleviated greatly.
At Acupuncture Wellness Services, we use a combination of modalities and techniques to regulate the flow of energy in the body to achieve outstanding results. The extensive training and experience of our practitioners enables them to successfully blend time-tested and ancient treatment protocols with modern and sophisticated therapies. One of the greatest benefits of our procedure is the ability to detect and correct energetic sensitivities to foods and the environment that might be creating symptoms in your body. Each patient is treated individually, and so the combination of techniques is determined at the time of evaluation. Our treatments integrate well with western medicine, chiropractic, massage therapy, occupational therapy, dental work and nutritional healing.
