Why is hormone balance important?

Your hormones act as chemical messengers to the brain and play a role in many of your body’s major functions. Your body produces hormones to regulate your:

  • Energy
  • Metabolism
  • Nerve function
  • Tissue remodeling
  • Reproductive cycles

Hormones also provide you with the fight-or-flight response you need to keep yourself safe.

When you have an imbalance in your hormones, any of these functions can go haywire and impact your quality of life.

What are the signs of a hormone imbalance?

The signs of a hormone imbalance depend on what hormones your body isn’t producing as it should. While a hormone imbalance can cause a wide range of symptoms, some common signs might include:

  • Weight gain
  • Constipation
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Muscle weakness
  • Decreased sex drive

A hormone imbalance can also contribute to mental health issues like anxiety and depression and be a factor in infertility.

What causes a hormone imbalance?

Transformation Wellness Center offers on-site blood work to test your hormone levels. Testing of your sex hormones, adrenal hormones, and thyroid can pinpoint the underlying cause of imbalanced hormones, such as:

  • Aging
  • Menopause
  • Adrenal fatigue
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Environmental pollutants

A hormone deficiency can also be the result of lifestyle factors like poor diet, lack of sleep, and chronic stress.

Once the Transformation Wellness Center team determines what’s causing your symptoms and understands the severity of your hormone imbalance, they focus on helping you make the changes necessary to rebalance your hormone levels and restore your vitality.
