Hormones are important for regulating most major bodily processes, as such hormone balance and optimization are vital to health and wellbeing and a key to optimal functioning in both men and women.
What causes hormone imbalance?
Most people will experience some type of hormone imbalance in their lives. Common causes are chronic and/or extreme stress, thyroid dysregulation, overweight and/or obesity, poor diet, and exposure to toxins and pollutants, to name a few. However, the most common cause for both men and women is aging and premature menopause and andropause. However, a recent study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology (2007) shows a decline in American men’s testosterone levels during the last 20-years without a known cause.
How do we help?
Symptoms of hormone imbalance such as fatigue, insomnia, memory problems, headaches, dysregulated sexual health, emotional and relationship difficulties are often overlooked by healthcare providers and the patient remains untreated. Our goal is to identify imbalances, in testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, thyroid, and vitamin d and then optimize these hormones in the upper quartile of the normal, safe and healthy ranges.

Testosterone levels typically peak in your early 20’s and drop steadily every year afterward by an average of 3% a year. As levels drop, so does metabolism and muscle mass, body fat increases, moodiness, and irritability can begin as well as forgetfulness and foggy thinking. Libido and sexual performance can also be impacted which can cause stress and frustration.
