Hormone Imbalances Q & A

What are hormonal imbalances?

Hormonal imbalances occur when your endocrine glands make or release too many or not enough hormones. Hormones are powerful, and your body needs the right amount of these chemicals to perform various functions. Any change in hormone production has a significant effect on your body, disrupting your physical, mental, and emotional health.

Hormonal imbalances may involve any hormone in the body. Women can expect hormonal imbalances in the years and months leading up to menopause due to fluctuations in the production of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and premenstrual syndrome (PMS) are also caused by hormonal changes and imbalances. Thyroid conditions are one of the more disruptive hormonal imbalances that commonly affect women.

What are the symptoms of hormonal imbalances?

The symptoms of hormonal imbalances depend on the type of hormone affected and whether levels are too high or too low. Some of the common symptoms women may experience with hormonal imbalances include:

  • Changes in mood
  • Weight gain
  • Problems sleeping
  • Fatigue
  • Infertility
  • Irregular menstrual cycle
  • Acne
  • Low libido
  • Excess hair growth on the face, chest, or back
  • Hair thinning on the scalp
  • Dry skin

Hormonal imbalances, like a thyroid condition, also affect metabolism, which is how your body uses food for energy.

Dr. Laura Miramontes, ND, specializes in diagnosing and treating hormonal imbalances, helping women from all ethnic backgrounds get the individualized care they need to restore balance and improve health in every area of their life.

What treatments can improve hormonal imbalances?

Before making specific treatment recommendations, Dr. Laura Miramontes, ND, completes a thorough initial evaluation. During this 60-minute consultation, she spends time getting to know you, asking detailed questions about your health and when you first started feeling less than your usual self.

Dr. Laura Miramontes, ND, also asks about your typical day, including your usual diet, exercise routine, mood, self-care, and stressors. She completes an Ayurvedic physical exam and runs advanced lab testing to look for the source of your hormonal imbalances.

She provides detailed explanations of your lab results and your personalized holistic treatment plan for your hormonal imbalance. Your plan may include hormonal or non-hormonal therapies, herbal medicine, and diet therapy.

From PMS to menopause, hormonal imbalances are common in women from all walks of life, affecting physical and emotional well-being. Call Heal SD or schedule your hormonal imbalance consultation online today.
