Hormone Imbalance Treatment at Spine Pain Center
Have you been experiencing a variety of symptoms you just can't account for? Such diverse issues as insomnia, hypertension, depression, headaches, mood swings, and loss of sex drive can all be attributed to imbalances of the hormones that instruct your body on how to perform its functions. Treatment of these imbalances therefore hinges on treatment of the underlying problems that created them. Here at Spine Pain center, we offer natural forms of hormone imbalance treatment to get your body working as it should.
How Hormone Imbalances Affect the Body
Hormones are the chemical messengers that tell every system in your body what to do. They are produced by the structures of the endocrine system such as the adrenal glands, lymph glands, pancreas, hypothalamus, ovaries, testes, pineal gland, and pituitary gland. When hormones are released at the proper times and in the correct quantities, they allow your various physical processes to work together harmoniously, but too much of one hormone, or too little of another, can cause serious health problems.
Hormones affect everything from metabolic rate to human growth and sexual function. For example, an imbalance of metabolic hormones can cause either uncontrollable hunger or lack of appetite. They can also impair your body's ability to use nutrients or burn fat, resulting in obesity, diabetes, and other issues. Imbalances in sex hormones can cause unwanted sexual characteristics to appear, from facial hair on women to breast growth on men. They can also promote impotence, infertility, early menopause, and other problems. Last but not least, hormone imbalances simply make you feel bad. They can destroy your sleep quality, interfere with healing, and leave you feeling fatigued, anxious, or depressed.
Functional Medicine to Restore Your Health and Wellness
Our functional medicine services at Spine Pain Center can help your body re-balance itself. You might not automatically associate chiropractic care with hormone imbalance treatment, but it makes perfect sense when you think about the benefits of this form of healing. Chiropractic adjustments can take pressure off of nerves, improving your nervous system's ability to send instructions to the endocrine system. This allows your glands to function more normally. Our medical treatment and nutritional counseling can also play important roles in restoring your body's ability to produce the right amounts of various hormones at the right times, boosting your health and your quality of life.
