Female Hormone Imbalance
Symptoms of hormone imbalance tend to increase as a woman ages, especially if ignored in the earlier years, and this phase is usually referred to as the 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 ratio of estrogen to testosterone in the body. 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 The Male Menopause.
Symptoms of estrogen dominance include: 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 to name a few.
If the body has a proper balance of testosterone to estrogen, many of these symptoms can be alleviated. Learn more about natural hormone replacement therapy for men.
How we treat Hormone Imbalance at our Clearwater clinic
Many hormone creams, pills, and potions on the market are purchased and used indiscriminately. A more scientific way to deal with the regulation of hormones, however, is to measure their levels in the urine with a 24-hour lab test 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.
