Hormone Balancing


Hormonal imbalances occur when there is too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream. Because of their essential role, even small hormonal imbalances can cause side effects throughout the body. Hormone imbalance can sometimes be a result of lifestyle patterns like stress, diet, lack of exercise, and sleep patterns as well as pollution or other toxic elements in the environment. As we age, most people experience a drop in hormone levels that can cause a variety of unpleasant and sometimes debilitating symptoms:

· unexplained weight gain or weight loss
· unexplained or excessive sweating
· difficulty sleeping
· changes in sensitivity to cold and heat
· very dry skin or skin rashes
· changes in blood pressure
· changes in heart rate
· brittle or weak bones
· changes in blood sugar concentration
· irritability and anxiety
· unexplained and long-term fatigue

· increased thirst
· depression
· headaches
· needing to go to the bathroom more or less than usual
· bloating
· changes in appetite
· reduced sex drive
· thinning, brittle hair
· infertility
· puffy face
· blurred vision
· a bulge in the neck
· breast tenderness
· deepening of the voice in females

Because symptoms of hormone imbalance are often misdiagnosed as a variety of other mental and physical issues: depression, anxiety, ADHD etc they are also often mistreated.

Through a comprehensive analysis that includes hormone level testing, lifestyle assessment and family health history, the RISE Medical team will assess the degree of imbalance and implement an individualized plan that may include any or all of the following: Bioidentical hormone replacement (compounded in some cases), dietary adjustments, vitamin supplements, realistic exercise goals and lifestyle changes.
