Natural Ways to Balance Your Hormones

Imagine a highly sophisticated message delivery system, similar to texting and emailing, but in your body. This describes your amazing endocrine system, the network of glands that produces and distributes the many hormones your body’s organs need to function.

Your hormones control so many systems in your body, from your growth and appetite to how well you sleep, your mood, and your fertility. When something goes awry with your hormones and they get out of whack, you can experience many types of physical and emotional disruptions that lead to health problems.

Fortunately, Dr. Mandeep Walia-Bhatia helps patients with dysregulated hormones, so they can feel and function better again. 


Since we at Gain Wellness Center look at your health holistically and know that your physical and emotional health aren’t independent of each other, we can treat you by closely examining and addressing the root of your problem, not just haphazardly throwing medications at limited sets of symptoms.  

The disturbing effects of hormonal imbalance

As we noted, your hormones, when finely balanced, cause your body to operate like a well-oiled machine, but when there’s an imbalance — like when a woman’s estrogen plummets during menopause — it can make for distressing symptoms that affect your quality of life, like hot flashes, sleep problems, and “off” moods. 

That’s just one example, but other symptoms linked to hormonal imbalance include:

This exhaustive list is just a snapshot of how imbalanced hormones can affect you, and obviously, if you suffer from one or more of them, your wellness and daily comfort can be  impacted greatly. 

How can we “right” hormones that are not properly balanced?

The good news about imbalanced hormones is that when you seek treatment at Gain Wellness Center, Dr. Walia-Bhatia talks to you at length about your medical history, lifestyle, and symptoms. She may also advise that you undergo a Complete Wellness Evaluation, an assessment that reveals much about your cellular, digestive, and nutritional health, as well as your hormonal health. 

Dr. Walia-Bhatia also discusses how much you exercise and the role stress plays in your life — none us can escape it, unfortunately, but managing it well has positive effects on your health. 

In functional medicine, all these factors influence and coalesce with the others, so your condition is never treated in an isolated way here.

Excess weight, intense stress, anorexia, and an improperly functioning thyroid can all contribute to disrupting your hormones — so can sustaining an injury to one of your endocrine glands, undergoing cancer treatment, and being exposed to harmful environmental toxins. 

Natural transitions can lead to hormonal imbalance, too. We mentioned menopause earlier, but other milestones like giving birth to a baby, as well as living with a condition like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or diabetes also contribute to dysregulation.

To balance your hormones, Dr. Walia-Bhatia may recommend a combination of treatments, including:

We offer a range of supplements that can help with hormonal imbalance, including those that support thyroid health, address menopause symptoms, and more. Dr. Walia-Bhatia can help you determine which ones are right for you.

When a hormonal upset is treated properly, you truly can feel like you have a new lease on life. When you’re freed from the diverse, life-altering symptoms of a confused endocrine system, you’ll feel like yourself again and be able to relish all life has to offer.
