Holistic Treatment for Hormonal Imbalance in Abingdon, VA
A change in hormones can make even simple everyday issues feel insurmountable and life difficult to enjoy. With a hormonal imbalance, you may feel drained both mentally and physically.
Two main hormones are to blame for the majority of your symptoms, estrogen and progesterone. When entering perimenopause, the time before menopause, these hormone levels can vary wildly. Perimenopause can occur anytime from your early thirties to late forties, affecting countless women.
Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance
- Weight gain
- Hot flashes
- Night Sweats
- Decreased libido
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Vaginal dryness
- Memory issues
- PMS (with mood swings, anxiety , depression and/or melancholia)
Together or independently, these symptoms can significantly affect your ability to carry out daily activities and do the things you love.
Holistic Treatments for Hormonal Imbalance
Diet can play a huge roll in keeping hormonal imbalance in check. Reducing your intake of sodium, caffeine, MSG and artificial sweeteners may help control your symptoms. Cutting out natural sugar is also a wise move; not only can it help with hormonal imbalance, but may decrease your risk of developing type II diabetes. Diabetes — as some suggest — is even a major precursor to breast cancer.
Keeping an eye on carbohydrate intake, abolishing white bread and pasta in exchange for fruits, vegetables and whole grains may be all that is needed to see relief. Increasing your vitamin intake of vitamin B6, zinc, magnesium, omega-3s and calcium before perimenopause may help minimize symptoms later in life.
Holistic treatments that have been said to have a harmonizing effect on the hormonal system, include:
- Acupuncture therapy
- Auricular therapy
- Bioenergetic medicine
- Botanical medicine
- Stress management
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is often the most utilized natural treatment for hormonal imbalance because of its ability to quickly restore hormone levels in both men and women.
Regardless of which treatment and prevention options you and your health care practitioner decide to use, there is help available. You don?t need to suffer from the intolerably bumpy road of hormonal imbalance.
