Hormones, at their most base, help to manage processes as they occur in the body. There are many different hormones that exist. There are the sex hormones: androgen’s (testosterone) and estrogen’s. These manage things like puberty and gender-specific processes. Cortisol and adrenal hormones manage energy levels, stress, and the body’s fight or flight response. Melatonin is a hormone that manages the sleep cycle. Thyroid hormones influence metabolism, temperature, and growth. When these hormones are all in balance, the body functions well. When they are not, however, it can cause catastrophic effects. Hormone levels shift naturally over time, especially with processes such as puberty and menstrual cycles, but they can also be influenced by health and lifestyle decisions. Some basic signs of a hormone imbalance might be fatigue, sleep cycle problems, weight gain, weight loss, anxiety, depression, digestion problems, or just generally feeling unhealthy. At Nutritionally Yours, we run hormone imbalance testing using saliva samples to look at your hormone levels. Saliva shows us the hormone potential of the body, instead of just the hormones currently in use by the blood. By getting yourself back in balance, you will be taking a step towards a healthier you.
We care about you and are here to help you.
