Could Your Anxiety and Mood Swings be Caused by a Hormone Imbalance?

Did you know that nearly half of all women have been affected by a hormone imbalance? It may be difficult to diagnose a hormone imbalance, since many women don’t recognize the symptoms.

While most of us recognize the classic signs like hot flashes, mood swings, and weight gain, many of us don’t know of the less commonly recognized signs like urinary incontinence, brain fog, and memory loss.

At Chiropractic Memphis Health and Wellness, our doctors are here to provide you with the latest in healthcare. That’s why we’ve compiled this helpful guide to why it is important to have your hormones balanced.

What is a hormonal imbalance?

Hormones are chemicals that travel about your bloodstream, telling your body’s tissues and organs how to function. They’re responsible for important functions like your metabolism and your reproduction.

When your hormones are imbalanced, your body is producing too much or too little of certain hormones. Hormones are a serious matter, because even a small change can have serious implications for your body like:

There are also some symptoms that only women experience. The reason that hormonal imbalance is so common in women is because our bodies go through hormonal changes quite often because of our reproductive systems. For this reason, it’s also incredibly common for women to have unbalanced hormones when we’re going through menopause. 

Balancing your hormones

Luckily, you don’t have to suffer through life with the symptoms of unbalanced hormones. There are lifestyle changes and treatment options that can remedy the problem. To start, tell us all about your lifestyle.

We’ll want to examine your diet, exercise, and your smoking and drinking habits. Be as honest as possible so that we can help you with the most effective solutions.

You may want to opt for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. This is where we give you a course of hormones for a limited period of time that best match your body’s natural hormone structure. You may also opt for progesterone or vitamin therapy, or a combination of treatment options. 

Because your body is unique, we’ll devise a plan that includes medication and lifestyle changes to best treat your hormone imbalance so that you can function at your best. For more information, call us to make an appointment today.
