Women are uniquely designed with very complex and finley tuned reqproductive and endocrine systems. Monthly fluctuations that enable childbirth and later in life changes that signal the end of childbearing can go from natural and normal processes to symptomatic difficulties with only slight disturbances. What causes those disturbances and what can you do about them to end the cyclic pain, bloating, mood swings, depression, anxiety, insomnia, weight gain, acne, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, hair loss or hair gain (in all the wrong places)?
Traditional medicine uses a replacement model of endocrinology. This method measures hormone levels to see what is too low or high. Then replacement hormones are given. This sounds reasonable however it is based upon a snapshot of hormone levels (levels at the moment the sample is taken). It also simply addresses the symptoms but does not identify the root cause. Hormones imbalances don't happen for no reason at all. In a healthy, functioning person, hormones are regulated and operating as they should. A hormonal impbalance is a sign that something is not functioning as it was designed to function.
A functional model of endocrinology looks at thethe root cause of the hormone imbalance. What are the underlying issues causing the imbalance? In order to restore balance it is necessary to find the source of the problem and address it at that level rather merely masking the symptom, which is the hormone imbalance.
An optimally functioning nervous system allows signals to freely transmit information to and from the central nervous system. This includes hormone regulating signals. We also look at nutritional components that may be affecting endocrine function.
When hormoneal balance is naturally restored, amazingly all of the symptoms associated with the imbalance subside.
