Hormone imbalances in women can lead to conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome, premenstrual syndrome, fibrocystic breasts, and ovarian cysts. The causes are most often related to lifestyle choices, such as excessive sugar intake, a diet lacking in green leafy vegetables and complete proteins, ongoing mental stressors, insufficient sleep, and overstimulation from the modern world. The pituitary gland in the brain initiates all of the signals that control ovarian hormones. The pituitary receives its commands from a higher centre called the hypothalamus, and the hypothalamus is reacting to the surrounding environment. What we experience affects the way our bodies function.
We restore hormonal balance through an individualized treatment program focused on nutritional supplements, diet correction, and establishing an exercise and stress-management routine. Bio-identical hormones may also be used to restore normal cycling.
