Have you ever been told your symptoms are “in your head?” It happens far too often in conventional medicine, especially for women. Typically, symptoms related to hormone imbalances or decline can have systemic effects. These effects can be less clear to pinpoint through the conventional lens, which is why they are often dismissed or justified as “just a part of getting older.” While hormonal changes are natural in life, associated symptoms can be improved and often reversed through a functional medicine approach – and with the help of providers who are open-minded and who do not settle for the status quo.
Hormones are the body’s “master signaling” molecules that help keep all systems running smoothly. When hormones are in balance, we feel vibrant, well-rested, alert, and stable in our mood. When hormones are imbalanced, we may experience symptoms related to appetite, sleep, metabolism, mental health, energy, libido, and menstrual irregularities in women.
While fluctuations in hormones often occur throughout life’s transitions, natural hormone decline can start as early as age 30. Later in life, many women experience symptoms of hormone decline related to perimenopause and menopause that can be disruptive and often painful. Conventional medicine tells women to believe their symptoms related to hormone imbalances or menopause are a “normal” part of life and there are no solutions that can offer relief. We wholeheartedly disagree.
