What are the Biggest Mistakes in the Mainstream Treatment of Hormones?
The root causes of hormonal imbalances are never addressed, including compromised gut health, high inflammation, and highstress levels.Most of us are living life completely out of balance.
Unfortunately, after a time, we come to accept the symptoms of imbalance as “normal”.

Hormones are the most potent chemical messengers in our bodies, telling your body what to do and when. Hormonal imbalances can cause of a host of serious health problems, and when your hormones are out of balance, you may be able to feel the effects, whether it be via insomnia, fatigue, weight gain, hair loss, or mood swings.
While many things can cause an imbalance in our hormones, the good news is we can often fix these imbalances without medications. Functional Medicine facilitates the diagnosis and treatment process, in that it identifies and treats the underlying cause(s), which creates balance and improves symptoms. When you figure out what creates the imbalances – and treat the underlying problem – you find a true solution!

When evaluating and treating hormone imbalances, it sounds simple to focus on just one hormone – however our bodies produce many hormones and each hormone communicates from one organ or region of the body to another. Hormones work as a symphony inside your body. Each hormone (or player) has its own function(or sound), and when it is in balance with all the other hormones – the result is a beautiful harmony! Likewise, if one player is “out of tune” then the entire orchestra gets disrupted and the music is chaotic.
