Women’s Health-Hormone Balance-It’s All Connected

Hormonal health is as important as diet and exercise when it comes to overall health. Dr. Brown specializes in hormone balancing to treat a variety of complaints. Optimizing hormones is not only for menopausal women but also menstruating women and women seeking to get pregnant.

Think you may have a hormonal imbalance? These common symptoms may indicate it is worth further investigation.

  • Hot flashes and/or night sweats
  • Weight gain and bloating
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Decreased libido
  • Hair loss
  • Mood swings, forgetfulness, foggy brain
  • Muscle aches and pains
  • Breast tenderness
  • Painful menses
  • Migraine headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety/panic
  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • Emotional fragility
  • Abnormal hair growth
  • PMS
  • Missed or irregular cycles, infertility, recurrent miscarriages
  • Fibroids, endometriosis, ovarian cysts
If you are experiencing any of the signs and symptoms mentioned above, there is safe and effective treatment available. Therapies include lifestyle modification, supplements, herbs, and/or bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

Sex hormones are not always to blame for these symptoms. For example, the stress hormone cortisol plays a role in metabolic and immune function balance. The thyroid, adrenals, and ovaries must all be in balance and if one is over or under-producing it will naturally cause changes in the other endocrine glands, including the ovaries.

For women, unsettling sex hormones changes can begin as early as the mid-30s but more commonly in 40’s and 50’s. Onset of perimenopause can be rapid with varying symptoms from worsening PMS to hot flashes. If symptoms are mild, they can be managed with lifestyle changes and herbal support. When more severe, hormone replacement therapy may be necessary to restore a quality of life.
