At Discover Chiropractic we believe that many health problems experienced today are due to imbalanced hormones. Hormones play a major role in our body’s ability to function at its best—and often in ways that you’re not even aware of. Most patients, when they come into our office, have incomplete testing or their doctor failed to test hormones in the first place. Without proper testing, individuals may never find the root cause of their health issues.
Hormonal imbalance symptoms include:
- Irregular periods
- Unexplained weight gain or loss
- Chronic fatigue and/or difficulties falling and staying asleep
- Headaches and migraines
- Changes in appetite
- Changes in libido
- Bloating and/or stomach pains
- Changes in heart rate
- Changes in blood pressure
- Sensitive skin
- Excessive sweating
What can cause hormones to become imbalanced?
All of your hormones act together and help regulate every pathway in your body from your reproductive system to your metabolism. When hormones become imbalanced, it affects everything. Hormones are messengers in our bodies, which means “something” has triggered them to raise or lower. Those “somethings” can be explained by the 3 Ts: thoughts, traumas or toxins.
As important as hormones are to our health, we realize that most people aren’t tested properly. With The Wellness Way approach, we have the motto, “We don’t guess, we test!” At Discover Chiropractic, we test all 3 Ts. It is important to not only test which hormones are imbalanced, but also the stressors that may be contributing to the disparities. For example, healing a leaky gut, addressing inflammation, and getting your blood sugar under control.
