Diagnosing and Treating for Years
Hormonal Imbalance Specialist in Harrisburg
Those with a hormonal imbalance often struggle to have their condition treated let alone diagnosed. While you may not realize that your symptoms and health issues are related to a hormonal imbalance, even the smallest adjustments can have significant effects on your overall health.
Here at Jatto Wellness Center, we have years of experience diagnosing and treating hormonal imbalances of all kinds.
What is a hormonal imbalance?
Hormones are chemicals within the body that work to regulate metabolism, sleep cycles, reproductive cycles, sexual function, mood, stress levels, appetite, heart rate and even body temperature. If someone is experiencing a hormonal imbalance that means they likely have either too much of a hormone or too little.
What causes a hormonal imbalance?
Women naturally have an influx in hormones when they go through puberty, pregnancy and menopause. Men see changes when they also hit puberty and start to age. There are several underlying medical issues that can trigger an imbalance. Other factors, such as lifestyle and environment, can also contribute to a disruption in hormones. The most common causes of a hormonal imbalance include:
- Diet: The increase in sugar, preservatives and chemicals in processed foods can all cause hormonal imbalance.
- Stress: An increase in stress can cause a chain reaction that causes weight gain and hormonal imbalances.
- Hidden toxins
What are the symptoms of a hormonal imbalance?
Symptoms vary depending on the patient, and natural life cycles will of course cause fluctuations for both men and women. However, it is possible that these changes are accidentally kicked into overdrive and cause symptoms such as:
- Mood changes
- Excessive sweating
- Rapid weight gain or weight loss
- Sleep issues
- Dry skin
- Thinning hair
- Difficulty regulating body temperature
- Changes in sex drive
- And more
You may even experience multiple symptoms at once and not always recognize if you have a hormonal balance.
