Hormonal imbalances occur when there is too much or too little of a particular hormone in the body. Hormones play vital roles in the body, regulating appetite, weight, sleep, and more. When one or multiple hormones are out of balance, there are many symptoms that can result. Hormonal changes associated with menstrual cycles and hormonal decline associated with menopause and andropause are a normal part of life. However, if hormonal changes are causing symptoms that negatively affect you, you may want to book a visit with Kamloops Naturopath Dr. Kayla ND. There are many naturopathic treatments that treat underlying causes and symptoms of hormonal imbalance.
Assessment starts with a medical history and considers root causes of hormonal imbalance. For women, there may be an imbalance of progesterone and estrogen, but other hormones such as testosterone, cortisol, and thyroid hormones also play a role. Hormone testing can be done through the blood, urine, or saliva, and the results can help guide and monitor treatment. There are a range of naturopathic treatment options available, which may include botanical medicine, nutraceuticals, diet and lifestyle changes, or prescription medications.
