Compounding for Hormone Imbalances
What are the Symptoms of Hormone Imbalances?
Hormones are an essential part of the workings of every cell in the human body and regardless of age, a woman’s hormones all work together to keep her in balance.  The ovaries produce many hormones. Chief among them are estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.   Even when only one unbalanced hormone is present, it will adversely affect all the others. This imbalance may result in the following menopausal and premenopausal symptoms:
  • Bloating
  • Decreased fertility
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Weight gain
  • PMS
  • Memory lapses
  • Nervousness
  • Poor concentration
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Hot flashes
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Irregular or Painful Periods
  • Low libido
  • Mood swings
  • Night sweats
  • Tender or fibrocystic breasts
  • Vaginal dryness
Can Hormones be “Re”-Balanced?
In short, yes. Based on your symptoms and the results of your saliva or blood tests we can help to identify which hormones need to be rebalanced, and offer you advice on the best methods to achieve hormonal balance.
