Learn how hormone therapy treatments can help you

Often, it can be all too easy to assume that your difficulty losing weight is a due to a lack of willpower or energy. If you have been feeling unusually fatigued, or experiencing significant mood or weight changes, your body chemistry could be the cause.

Gradual hormone imbalances can be brought on by your stress levels, diet, medication, and other factors – and they can drastically affect your mood and your ability to control your weight.

You can come into our clinic for a discussion of your possible symptoms, and saliva testing of your reproductive, adrenal, and/or thyroid hormones to determine the root of your problem.

  • Adrenal fatigue is the result of low cortisol levels, which can lead to symptoms such as frequent tiredness, mental fogginess, and cravings for fatty or salty carbohydrate foods.
  • Menopause occurs in women generally between the ages of 45 and 55, and is marked by declining levels of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. These low hormone levels contribute to symptoms such as weight gain, mood swings, depression, and fatigue.
  • Andropause affects men generally between the ages of 40 and 55. A decline in testosterone levels leads to symptoms including mood changes, fatigue and loss of sex drive.
  • Hypothyroidism occurs when your body is producing low levels of the thyroid hormone, affecting your metabolism rate and leading to symptoms such as weight gain, feeling cold, constipation, and more.
  • Hyperthyroidism occurs with an excess production of the thyroid hormone, resulting in symptoms such as weight loss, frequent sweating and feeling hot, and emotional changes.

Do not choose to ignore your symptoms as simply signs of “the aging process”
