Hormonal Health

Hormonal Health: Hormones like estrogen, testosterone, adrenaline and insulin are extremely important chemical messengers that affect many aspects of one’s health. Hormones are secreted by various glands and organs, including the thyroid, adrenals, pituitary, ovaries, testicles and the pancreas. The entire endocrine system works together to control the level of hormones circulating throughout the body. And if one or more is imbalanced it can cause major health problems.

The most common symptoms of hormone imbalance include:

  • Infertility and irregular periods
  • Weight gain or weight loss (unexplained, not due to intentional changes in one’s diet)
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Low libido
  • Appetite changes
  • Issues with digestion
  • Hair thinning and loss

Symptoms of hormonal imbalances can range depending on what type of disorder or illness they cause. For example symptoms of diabetes include weight gain, appetite changes, nerve damage and eyesight problems.  Conventional treatments for hormone imbalances include synthetic hormone replacement therapies i.e. insulin injections, thyroid medications. However, with these types of treatments comes negative effects, such as medication dependency, serious side effects like stroke, osteoporosis, anxiety, reproductive problems, cancer and more. And with these synthetic treatments the symptoms aren’t treated but only masked. Fortunately, there are ways to acquire hormonal health naturally. For example stay away from oils high in omega-6 fats (safflower, sunflower, corn, canola, soybean and peanut). Instead utilize rich sources of natural omega-3’s (wild fish, flaxseed, chia seeds, walnuts and grass-fed animal products). For Answers to any questions you may have please call Dr. Jimenez at 915-850-0900
