Hormones serve as specialized chemical messengers in the body that control most of your major bodily functions. This means that even one simple hormone imbalance has the power to diminish your health and cause painful and uncomfortable symptoms. It’s important to recognize the signs of hormone imbalance so you can seek the best natural treatment.

According to Dr. Christopher Davis, an Interventional Cardiologist and Chief Executive Officer/Founder of Reveal Vitality, these are the six signs you may have a hormone imbalance.

Irregular Periods

A regular menstrual cycle lasts between three to five weeks, but as many as 25% of women experience irregular periods that are shorter or longer than average. Hormone imbalances can create the absence of excessive menstrual bleeding, which both have unwanted consequences.

Brain Fog

Has it become increasingly difficult to concentrate and focus? Declining estrogen levels and imbalanced thyroid hormones are both linked to brain fog, especially in premenopausal women. Fortunately, hormone therapy can quickly reverse this issue by replenishing hormones.

Adult Acne

Acne is a hated skin condition at every age, especially in adulthood when you expect to have consistently clear skin. Excess levels of hormones called androgens can trigger the oil and clogged pores that lead to acne.

Fatigue

There are many root causes of fatigue, including hormone imbalance. Too much progesterone can make you feel tired, as can low thyroid hormone levels. A blood test can reveal your hormone levels and identify which imbalance could be the root cause of your exhaustion.

Mood Disturbances

Mood swings are a notorious side effect of imbalanced hormones. Anger, irritability, depression, and anxiety are all associated with hormone fluctuations. In addition to hormone therapy, healthy lifestyle changes can also minimize mood problems.

Sexual Dysfunction

Just like low testosterone levels cause sexual dysfunction in men, low estrogen levels are responsible for female sexual dysfunction. Symptoms include lack of libido, vagical dryness, and pain during intercourse. Hormone therapy and the PRP O-Shot are both shown to minimize these symptoms and help you regain full sexual function – and enjoyment!
