Female Hormone Imbalance
Symptoms of hormone imbalance in women may begin as early as the late 20s to the 40s and may be marked by symptoms such as allergies, depression, fatigue and anxiety, fibrocystic breasts, and PMS.
Symptoms of hormone imbalance tend to increase as woman ages, especially if ignored in the earlier years, and this phase is usually referred to as Menopause. This phase is marked by decreased production of estrogen and progesterone and irregular periods.
Often a woman will begin to experience menopause symptoms like hot flashes, weight gain, insomnia, fatigue, and mood swings.
Male Hormone Imbalance
The levels of the male sex hormone – testosterone, decline with advancing age which causes a change in the body’s estrogen to testosterone ratio.
A point is reached when the levels of Testosterone become so low that estrogen finally begins to dominate – this phase in a man’s life is often referred to as Andropause or Male Menopause.
Symptoms of estrogen dominance include an enlarged prostate, urinary problems, low sex drive, impotence, diabetes, allergies, depression, fatigue, foggy thinking, increased risk of stroke, infertility, rapid increase in weight, and osteoporosis.
Many of these symptoms can be alleviated if the body has a proper balance of testosterone to estrogen. Learn more about natural hormone replacement therapy for men.
How we treat Hormone Imbalance at our Clearwater clinic
Many hormone creams, pills, and products are purchased and used indiscriminately.
However, a more scientific way to deal with regulating hormones is to measure their levels in the saliva and blood and then design a nutrition and hormone replacement program to bring the levels to normal.
We have helped many Tamp Bay residents to balance their hormones, and we can help you. Call 727-466-6789 at our Clearwater office for an appointment.
