Hormones keep your body running smoothly, but common imbalances cause symptoms that most medical providers don't know how to investigate underlying causes for.
Your Hormones, Your Health
Achieving balance in life is probably not a new concept to you. Just like balancing your diet and your schedule, your hormones also need to find a balance in order for you to feel your best.
Hormones work best when balanced. However, things like stress, poor diet choices, lack of sleep, and sedentary lifestyles can throw hormones out of balance and create real health issues.
If you’re experiencing symptoms of a hormonal imbalance, hormone testing could be the solution you’ve been seeking. All of our clinics provide onsite blood draws and laboratory testing for optimal convenience.
Once we receive your tests back, we will review them with you in detail to help create a personalized plan that drives better, faster results.

Get to the Root
Hormones regulate so much of what you do every day. When all is right, you barely notice its effects. However, when a hormone imbalance occurs, it can seem like nothing is going right. Common symptoms include:
- Anxiety, irritability, and depression
- Chronic joint pain
- Difficulty sleeping/insomnia
- Erectile dysfunction (ED)
- Loss of libido
- Mood swings
- Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
- Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
- Skin and hair changes
- Weight gain or sudden weight loss
Frequently Asked Questions
Hormones play a fundamental role in your overall health. They act as messengers within your system and affect everything –brain, heart, bones, muscles, skin, and reproductive organs.
Hormones that can become unbalanced include:
- Progesterone — associated with female reproduction
- Melatonin — involved with internal circadian rhythms and sleep
- Thyroid — controls your metabolism (how your body uses energy)
- Testosterone — a male sex hormone that’s also present in women
- Estrogen — a female reproductive hormone that’s also present in men
- DHEA — a hormone that produces other hormones including testosterone and estrogen
Hormone imbalance is often due to aging. As women reach their later reproductive years and eventually enter menopause around age 50, their bodies produce less progesterone and estrogen. Men also produce less testosterone as they grow older.
In addition to aging, hormone imbalance can also be due to:
- Poor diet choices
- Inadequate sleep
- Sedentary lifestyles
- Injury or trauma
- Thyroid disorders
- Some medications
Both men and women can experience hormonal imbalance during their lives.
A hormonal imbalance is when the body has too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream. A hormone deficiency is when the body doesn’t have enough of a hormone. Both imbalances and deficiencies can produce dramatic side effects or symptoms.
