Our endocrine systems — which manufacture our hormones — regulate a multitude of processes throughout our bodies, from our sleep patterns and moods to growth and metabolism performance.
Certain glands produce an array of hormones, and these include your pancreas, which produces insulin, your sex-hormone-producing ovaries, and your pituitary gland, a tiny powerhouse that controls other glands, including your ovaries and thyroid.
Because of the many functions your endocrine system controls, if something gets out of whack, you can experience a multitude of unpleasant symptoms. There are treatments that can make things right again though, so your body can return to a state of equilibrium.
The Gain Wellness Center team has much experience helping women address hormonal imbalances and the problems that accompany them, so don’t be discouraged if you’re experiencing perplexing and bothersome symptoms. Part of our complete wellness evaluation involves taking a detailed look at how your hormones are — or aren’t — functioning.
Dr. Mandeep Walia-Bhatia, Dr. Jeremy La Motte, and Dr. Joseph Coppolino offer advanced treatments for all sorts of hormonal imbalances. They’re dedicated not only to bringing you relief, but customizing your treatment so you can get back to living your life symptom-free again.
Here’s a list we created of the most common signs that point to hormonal imbalance that you can easily reference.
Remember that some hormonal changes are normal at different life stages, but others come out of the blue. Fortunately, both can be treated successfully by the pros at Gain Wellness Center, so your quality of life is restored.
We’re also familiar with treating a cluster of symptoms, including body aches and sleep problems, known as adrenal fatigue.
Absolutely, but since our practice’s philosophy is based on investigating the root cause of health problems, we first perform a complete physical exam and look at your medical history, lifestyle, and other factors, so we can start connecting the dots of your condition and examine them through a functional medicine lens.
We inquire about your diet, stress level, and whether you live with any chronic health conditions. We also discuss potential toxin exposure over the course of your life and assess your endocrine gland functioning, which is revealed through blood and saliva testing.
Armed with this data, we create your personalized treatment plan, which may include counseling you about dietary changes you can make, encouraging you to up your exercise level, and advising you about effective stress management strategies.
To address toxicity issues, we guide you through a unique cellular detoxification process that strengthens your gut, and we educate you about making your home toxin-free.
We may also prescribe hormone replacement therapy, in which artificial hormones fill the hormonal deficits you’re experiencing. These can be taken orally, via injection, or topically.
We’re your partners in care, and we’re committed to investigating the origins of your health problems and finding solutions that work best for you.
