Hormone Balance Therapy Q&A

What is hormone balance therapy?

Hormones act as important signals throughout the body to perform and maintain various essential bodily functions. These functions range from mood, sexual health, behavior, metabolism, and more. Hormone balance therapy screens for potential hormone imbalances and creates a treatment plan to improve hormone function.

Do I need hormone balance therapy?

You may be an ideal candidate for hormone balance therapy if the wellness specialist determines an imbalance through comprehensive testing. Some hormone imbalances are short-lived and require minimal intervention, while others may have profound implications with long-lasting effects.

The experts perform thorough blood and lipid panels to measure your hormone levels and take action if needed. The type of hormone balance therapy you may require depends on the specific hormone causing the imbalance.

What creates a need for hormone balance therapy?

Hormone levels fluctuate through the many life stages. However, when one fluctuates too much, hormone imbalances may ensue. Hormone imbalances have several contributing factors, such as:

  • Puberty
  • Stress
  • Pregnancy
  • Medications
  • Drug use
  • Menopause
  • Chronic conditions
  • Injuries
  • Tumors

Hormone balance therapy determines the source of your imbalance and allows the experts to generate treatment options. Some treatment options can be as simple as lifestyle or medication changes. Treatments can also be more involved if an injury or underlying condition persists.

Why is hormone balance therapy important?

If left to its own devices, a hormone imbalance can contribute to a reduced quality of life and potentially additional concerns. Depending on specific factors, such as age, sex, and health status, hormone imbalances cause effects such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss or weight gain
  • Worsening skin quality
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Skin discoloration
  • Hair loss
  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Thyroid conditions
  • Lack of sexual interest

While hormone imbalances cause these detriments, they can also pose as symptoms that help your provider diagnose the issue. Your wellness expert can determine if any of your symptoms result from a hormone imbalance or another underlying condition.
